How to Prepare for a Portable Building Delivery

Portable cabins and buildings can be used for many types of businesses or short-term ventures. Not only are they fairly quick to erect but could be a very cost-effective option too. However, before you can get up and running in your new cabin, you must prepare the site for delivery to ensure everything goes smoothly.

In this blog, we explain some of the things you can do to prepare for your portable building delivery.

Site clearance

Make sure the site where the cabin or building is being placed is clear. If you have obstacles in the way this will only make the construction time a lot longer and could prevent the building being delivered at all. Do a thorough sweep on the area for anything that shouldn’t be there so the cabin has a clear, level area to be placed.

Space restrictions

Ensure you have enough space clear for the delivery - this will depend on how big your cabin is. Before ordering your cabin check the size to make sure it isn’t too large for the site as the last thing you want is to spot your mistake when it arrives! Part of clearing your site is also having the right amount of space ready so the delivery team knows exactly where to go and can get on with setting up your cabin in no time.


Health is safety should always be a top priority so bear this in mind when preparing for the delivery. Keep the area unpopulated so the team can deliver your cabin in the safest way possible and no one is at risk of being hurt. The delivery team may give safety requests before the delivery day so follow their instructions and your building delivery should go smoothly!
