Office Trailer PricesThe cost for mobile offices and construction trailers can be figured out here with just a few steps. There are advantages of renting mobile office construction trailers and there are advantages of buying job-site trailers and what’s right for you will be based on the overall cost for your specific needs.

Cost to Rent a Jobsite Construction Trailer: The cost to rent a trailer is determined by a variety factors, with one of the biggest being the length of time in which you will need the office trailer. Some projects last less than 3 months while others can extend well beyond one year. The second price driver will be the number of square feet, which typically range between 400 –  1,500 square feet. Renting a small office trailer will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $125 – $500 a month. For exact lease and rental prices from local suppliers please request office trailer quotes here.

Delivery and Setup: Each company has its own terms regarding the delivery and setup of an office trailer. Don’t assume that any supplier provides this service for free, though in some parts of the states we have found leading dealers that will set up the office trailer at no charge, while others will charge a few thousand dollars. The best practice is to ask in advance.

  1. I think that renting a site office is best especially if the owner bases prices off the length of the office. I assume that construction workers take the necessary time to find the best deals on on-site trailers so determining choices by their square feet is a preferred strategy. Thanks for the great information on choosing between buying and renting on site buildings.
