What are Portable Cabins and Portacoms?

Portable cabins are prefab structures ready for immediate use. They are portable, providing an excellent temporary solution for accommodation, storage, site office, etc.

On the other hand, portacoms are modular buildings. They are assembled in standardized modules (typically two or more). These portable structures provide temporary and long-term solutions for homes and businesses like schools and hospitals.

Factors to Consider when Choosing a Portable Cabin or Portacom

Are you planning to rent a portable cabin or portacom? Here are some essential factors to keep in mind.


Why do you want to rent a portable cabin should be one of the first considered factors when renting a portable cabin or portacom. As mentioned earlier, these prefab structures are suitable for various residential, commercial, retail, and industrial purposes. Some common areas of use include

·         Homes

·         Hospitals

·         Schools

·         Hotels

·         Clinics

·         Dormitories

·         Offices

Furthermore, you want to decide whether you want it for temporary or long-term use. A portable cabin is excellent for a quick solution. Conversely, you might need to rent a modular building if you want a permanent fixture for establishing a school, office, clinic, etc.

Key Features

Portable cabins and portacoms are excellent structures with incredible versatility. However, you should also check your options for other critical features like durability, flexibility, etc.

At Just Cabins, you can find solutions that are durable, flexible, and quick.

Next, considering the size of your portable cabin or portacom is a crucial consideration.

Cabins are generally small, which makes them easy to assemble and set up for immediate temporary use. On the other hand, portacoms are larger and more spacious, designed to mimic buildings.

That said, your choice comes down to your purpose or usage; it largely depends on how much space you need.

Benefits of Portable Cabins

Portable cabins offer many perks. Let us look at some reasons you should stop rethinking and rent one.
