The Benefits of Portable Cabin Hire

The Benefits of Portable Cabin Hire

Portable cabin hire has long been a go-to for construction projects that require quick and easy accommodation for offices, changing rooms, toilets, and more. What isn’t often considered, though, is that there are many benefits to using portable cabin hire – even beyond a simple construction project.

Here at Charles Wilson Engineers Ltd, we are specialists in providing portable cabins for customers throughout the UK, so we have put together a quick guide as to why they are perfect for your project and you should consider them over alternatives.


In the modern climate, building something permanent or modular can be extremely expensive – not only in terms of materials, but also due to labour costs and the sheer amount of time these projects take. On the contrary, portable cabin hire is a financially viable option that far outweighs the alternatives as it effectively avoids the most common pitfalls.

Firstly, portable cabins are mass-produced in factories and warehouses and – as Henry Ford showed us – mass-production leads to mass-savings for consumers. What’s more, as these cabins are temporary, you only need to pay for them for as long as necessary and you can rest assured that rental costs are going to be lower than outright construction.

If cheap manufacturing sounds like a bad thing, and that these cabins are going to be flimsy and useless, it can be a useful reminder that as they are hired out they are reused many times, which is a testament to their quality being impeccable and far greater than required. This quality can also outlive alternatives such as modular cabins as portable cabins are built to last and be used again and again.


Portable cabin hire is a service renowned for being quick, easy and effective. Because the cabins are already manufactured and ready to go, there is no need to wait around for construction time – your accommodation can be swiftly relocated to the site of your wishes and this is generally completed within 6 weeks.

There are also far likely to be setbacks due to uncontrollable forces such as the weather, which is a common concern for building structures from scratch – especially in England.


Essentially everything about portable cabin hire is flexible and suited specifically to your requirements. Whether it is the timeframe or the type of cabins you require, you can tailor an arrangement of portable cabins to your needs.

Hiring means you pay for as long as required and the beauty of portable cabins is that they can be attached and detached in a customisable fashion as necessary.

Less Waste

For the environmentally savvy of us, reducing the amount of waste we produce is important and can sometimes be hard to avoid – especially in construction industries. However, with portable cabin hire, you are contributing by adhering to one of the three pillars of recycling – reducing.

Materials needed are reduced by hiring portable cabins as they have a life before your project and one after. There is never a need to add or subtract materials from them as they are designed to be used in a systematic fashion.

Suited to You

Perhaps the main benefit of portable cabin hire is the freedom of the service that means it can be reworked in many different ways to be suited to your needs. Whether you’re looking for something more ‘permanent’, or something very short term, portable cabins are right for you whilst still being affordable.
