Your genuine pre-owned Portakabin building will be fully refurbished and fitted out to your specifications, to comply with all permanent building regulations. And it’s not just single cabins that can benefit from recycling. Using refurbished modules we can deliver buildings of any size.

Why buy a refurbished Portakabin building?

Pre-owned Portakabin buildings give you excellent value for money while retaining all the quality of Portakabin.

Unlike traditional building we are able to re-use the structural steel frame of a previously used Portakabin building. This means your budget will stretch further and you get the confidence of knowing your building still benefits from the high-quality, precision-engineering of a genuine Portakabin building.

  1. Your building delivered up to 70% faster than traditional build

    Largest selection of previously owned Portakabin buildings immediately available from stock. We typically hold 30,000m2 of stock giving you a faster return on investment.

  2. Quality-assured buildings backed by 10-year structural warranty cover

    To assure you of the quality and structural integrity of our refurbished Portakabin buildings, we will provide you with a 3-year product warranty – covering the external fabric, and a 10-year structural warranty – covering the structural, load-bearing elements.

  3. Unique on-time, on-budget promise

    We promise to deliver your building on time and on budget. And we back that up. In the unlikely event that we ever fail to deliver on time, we will refund 1% of your contract value for every week we are late.

    However, you'll be reassured to know that we have a track record of delivering 99.7% of projects on time and on budget.
