How to Keep Your Portable Building Safe

Updated: Feb 19

When you hire a portable building you may have some concerns around security and safety. There are, however, several things that you can do to improve this and ensure that your building is protected. Whether you’re hiring a cabin for just a few weeks or several months, safeguarding the area is always important.

Here are some easy ways of keeping your portable building safe.

Rent an anti-vandal cabin

One of the best things you can do is hire an anti-vandal cabin that’s designed with extra security in mind. Made from durable materials such as corrugated steel, these types of cabins are robust and hard to break into. Opportunists are less likely to target a building that is difficult to enter so this in itself is a deterrent. They also have insurance approved locks so attempts of theft will end in failure.

Don’t leave high-value items inside

High-value items such as money or important documents should always be kept in a safe place, so if you don’t feel comfortable leaving them in the cabin take them home at the end of the day or invest in a safe. It only takes one break-in for a criminal to retrieve your assets and this could be seriously detrimental for your business. For added safety, hang a notice on the outside of the cabin that reads ‘no valuable left overnight’ so criminals know it’s not worth breaking in to.

Hire security guards

If your portable building is on-site, why not hire a security guard? As an extra pair of eyes and a physical deterrent, they can look out for any suspicious behaviour and keep the entire area safe. You’d be surprised how much of a difference patrolled security can make.
