Self-sufficient and mobile welfare units from Portakabin can be towed to any location and are ready to use within just 30 seconds of delivery to site giving you the welfare facilities you need as soon as you need them.

Ready for dispatch

If you’re moving to a new or remote site with no mains infrastructure, you'll need a mobile welfare unit and our welfare facilities are always in stock and ready for rapid delivery from your nearest Hire Centre.


The low-cost, fully self-sufficient welfare cabin comes complete with its own energy-efficient diesel generator, battery-powered lighting and fresh water and effluent tanks. The generator for the mobile welfare unit is so efficient it can run for 38 days on a single tank of diesel.

Demand for energy-efficient site buildings is increasing all the time, driven by both contractors and clients. We'll certainly be going back to Portakabin (Site Accommodation) to use their excellent buildings on future projects.
