The Benefits of Used Modular Buildings
If your organization needs swing or expansion space at an affordable price point, used modular buildings are the solution. Modular construction is an economical alternative to traditional construction that still provides functionality, versatility, and quality. And when you opt for used modular buildings, you’ll save even more money and time. In this blog, we’ll examine the many benefits of leasing or purchasing used modular buildings.
New modular buildings already offer price savings over traditional construction. But when you choose a used modular building, you save even more money. Dealers already own the units, so you’re purchasing from their existing inventory.
Buying used also helps you avoid the initial depreciation that occurs with any new purchase. Think of it in terms of cars. When you purchase a new vehicle, it becomes used the minute you leave the lot.
It’s also more affordable to customize a used modular building than it is a new one. Your initial purchase is lower, so you can use your savings to make upgrades or customizations. In many cases, used modular buildings can be refurbished to look just like new, both inside and out.
Most dealers also offer to finance for delivery and setup when you lease a used modular building. You won’t have to put down as much upfront, so you can use that money for other purchases.
Used modular buildings are already constructed, so you can cut down on the time between deciding on the building you want and having the building installed. Once you’ve selected your building, it just needs to be delivered and set up. You also don’t have to wait (or pay) for an architect or engineer to design your building.
See It Before You Buy It
Like any construction, choosing a used modular building allows you to see what you’re getting before you sign on the dotted line. You can visit the dealer and look at their entire inventory of used buildings, rather than just seeing a blueprint like you would for new construction. This can help reduce the stress of making the wrong choice or paying for a building that doesn’t meet your needs.
Flexible Lease Terms
Most dealers offer more flexibility with lease terms and financing when you choose a modular building. You’ll have access to shorter lease terms, which is ideal if you only need the building for a year or so. On the other hand, most new modular construction requires a longer minimum lease term.
Modular construction is the perfect choice for businesses and organizations that are looking to go green. Modular buildings can be repurposed many times, so there’s less of a negative impact on the environment. They also help cut down on consumer waste and avoid the negative effects of standard construction processes.
Ideal Swing or Expansion Space
Like new modular construction, used modular buildings work well as swing or expansion spaces. Let’s take a closer look at these two options.
If you’re in the middle of a major building renovation, a used modular building makes for the perfect swing space. You’ll reduce your overhead costs, and you won’t have to move people and property to a remote location. And because the lease terms are shorter, you won’t be stuck with your building longer than you need it.
If you’re looking to expand your current facility without making a major investment, a used modular building is the way to go. Along with being affordable, they can be installed in just a few days with minimal site disturbance.
