Are you sitting there planning what you need on your new construction or industrial site? A site office is an extremely important part of the puzzle when it comes to what you need, and portable buildings make for some of the best office spaces on a building or work site.
One of the most common uses for shipping containers, apart from shipping goods that is, is to use them as site offices. The best thing is, particularly if you need it long term, is that you can buy shipping containers to use for your site office, and have them modified to suit your needs.
So when looking for a site office for sale, what should you be looking for?
Choosing a Shipping Container as a Site Office
Many people choose to use a shipping container for their site office because they are just so portable. When you finish up at one site you don’t need to pack everything up – they can just be moved to your new location. It is however important that you have an idea on the size of container you will need and what modifications you may want done.
At Shipping Containers Sydney, our site offices come in a range of sizes, from a one-man office of 10ft through to a 40ft container. We can join multiple containers to make a larger office space, or you can purchase containers to be used for different purposes such as kitchens, bathrooms, first aid centres and storage. It’s a good idea to know how you will use your site office so that you can choose the best size. If you aren’t sure, our friendly team are here to help.

Are Site Offices Only Used by Big Business?
Most people think of site offices as those used on construction sites or on industrial worksites. But that isn’t always the case. With the rise in working from home, if you don’t have space inside the home why not drop a site office into your yard? A dedicated office allows you to separate your home life and work life, and gives you space to store your work equipment out of everyone’s way. It also means you aren’t having to compete with the noise coming from the television or from your children having fun.
The beneficial side is that there are no construction costs, and with a little bit of furniture, these site offices are ready to use straight away. If you’re self employed, make sure to check with your accountant whether purchasing a portable office space is tax deductible.
