Dedicated hire and sales specialists
To provide the specialist service you require, we have a dedicated sales team and specialist hire teams based in more than 50 Visitor and Hire Centres across the UK. If you already know whether you want to hire or buy your building, please contact the relevant team directly.
If you're not sure whether hiring or buying is the best option for you, consider the following points to help you decide:
- How will your building be financed?
If you are paying for your building out of capital, buying is likely to be the best option for you. If it is to be funded from revenue, hiring is probably the best option.
- How long do you need the building for?
If it's for less than three years, hiring may be the most appropriate solution. If you need the building for more than three years, buying might represent the best value for money.
If you're still unsure or if you would like more detailed guidance, please contact your local Visitor and Hire Centre. They will be happy to listen to your requirements and advise you on the best option.
Follow our six simple steps
Once you have decided whether to hire or buy, and contacted the relevant Portakabin team, you will go through a simple six-step process to get your building delivered and ready to move in.
Step 1: A Portakabin representative will visit you to discuss your requirements and assess your site.

Step 3: We provide a written quotation.
Step 4: If required, we visit you again to make any alterations to our proposal and finalise the details of your building.
Step 5: We agree a delivery date, which we promise to meet, and assist you with any planning permission applications.
Step 6: After delivery, we contact you to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your building. Our team is always on call to provide further support whenever you need it.
