Modular & Portable Buildings For Hire

Hiring a portable building can be either a perfect short-term business solution, or a long-term answer for an expansion project. We work with businesses that may have forecast a change in circumstance, for example a growing business, and companies that have a need for an immediate space solution. Portable buildings are a fantastic choice due to their capability to be moved to a new location and to be expanded once they are in place.

We understand that appearance and functionality are key to the perfect building. Just some of the building finishes we can provide include: 

  • Office Furniture - Including workstations, chairs, storage and lighting.
  • Fire and Security Alarms - Including emergency lighting.
  • Steps and Ramps - To provide easy access and Building Regulations compliance.
  • Finishing Touches - From window guards and steel shutters to lifts and stair pods.

Springfield has established itself as a leading figure in the portable building industry, with over 50 years of experience in the sector.  All the components of our buildings are manufactured in our ISO-approved workshop based in St Helens, which has been the source of a huge range of developments across the UK.

When you hire a portable building, the number of uses is endless. You may be looking for a portable office space, a classroom, toilets and showers or specialist healthcare facilities. Let us know what you need, and we would love to fulfil and exceed the expectations of your ideal building!

Why Hire From Springfield?

1. Rapid Delivery Times and Lower Costs

As well as being able to work with you to create a bespoke building specifically for hire, we also have a vast range of buildings in stock and ready to go now. This means that your temporary portable building can be delivered within days of your order, if that is what you need. Our offsite construction methods mean we are not affected by the weather and can produce multiple components of a building simultaneously. This results in your building costing a fraction of the price of a traditional build and it can be delivered in record time.

2. One Experienced Point of Contact

The process of hiring a portable building from Springfield couldn’t be smoother. A dedicated project manager will see your order through from start to finish. Whatever your building needs, your dedicated project manager can provide you with a wide variety of options in terms of building types and finishes, regardless of whether you are looking to hire or purchase.

3. A Bespoke Service With An Open Door Policy

When it comes to modular buildings, we can provide what you want, how you want it, when you want it. You can choose to hire a building at whatever level of finesse suits your requirements. Portable cabins are not the only building type we offer here at Springfield. Alongside our flagship cabins, we also specialise in constructing modular, jackleg, prefabricated and two storey buildings.

4. Pride In Workmanship

Fast turnaround time does not mean a loss of quality. Quality is our number one goal, and we endeavour to deliver a unit that is 100% right for your business - with all the advantages of off-site production and no on-site building work necessary. We want the end result to be that you have hired a complete, fully fitted out, comfortable and secure building from Springfield. Just some of the finishes we can provide include bespoke internal fittings dependant on your sector and the building usage, climate-control systems, alarm systems and tailored features and facilities to comply with any standards associated with your building requirements. 

5. Financially Stable Supplier

With over 45 years trading, we're not going to disappear overnight and are well-versed in the unique components each building needs. Rest assured that Springfield will see your building hire project through, with continual support throughout your hire period. Any maintenance or servicing requirements will be taken care of by Springfield, to ensure that your building delivers optimum performance throughout your hire contract.

6. A Flexible, Future-Proof Solution

One of the brilliant things about hiring a modular building is that your building can be extended, reconfigured or relocated with ease.  Hiring a portable building can satisfy both a short-term need, with a hiring period of at least three months, or a long-term need with the option to hire a building for up to 20 years. 

How it Works - The Hiring Process

The first time you contact Springfield, you will be appointed a project manager. Your Springfield project manager will match your requirements to available stock and consider a new build if appropriate. Overseeing the development from start to finish, your project manager will manage every aspect of the installation, right up to handing over the keys.

We understand that investing in a portable building is a major commitment and therefore merits close examination. This is why visitors are always welcome and are actively encouraged to come and view the off-the-shelf buildings we have in stock, as well as looking around our factory and speaking to our expert craftsmen. 

The length of the hiring process is dependent on whether you are hiring a used or a new building: in-stock buildings can be delivered within days, whereas a new, custom building is typically built in six weeks.

Hiring Options

When hiring a portable building there are two contract options:

  • Short-Term Hire
  • Long-Term Hire

We offer our hiring contracts based on a minimum hire period, which is the initial length of time that you choose to hire your new building for. If you decide that you would like to keep your building for longer than this, it will become a rolling contract. Simply, have a chat with us and we can create a contract suited to your requirements.
