You get a quality-assured, fully fitted and ready-to-use building or cabin delivered fast to meet even the most urgent requirements.

Your building delivered on time and on budget - that's a promise
When you hire a temporary building from Portakabin, we promise that it will be delivered on time and on budget. In the unlikely event that we ever fail to deliver on time, we'll give you a week's free hire for every day that we're late.3 But you shouldn't have to worry, last year we delivered 99.7% of buildings on time and on budget.1 That compares very favourably with a traditional construction industry average of just 45% on time and 63% on budget.2

“When our first requirement for temporary accommodation arose, we conducted a thorough competitive review, and Portakabin emerged as the company offering the best quality buildings and the best overall value for money.”Peter Thompson, Bursar
"I had been impressed by the standard of the buildings provided by Portakabin on hire, and the service we received had been excellent. Now that we needed to buy a building at short notice, it was clear that modular construction was the best option, so I went back to Portakabin to see what they could offer".Iain Macrae, The Highland Council
