Cost Considerations


The temporary buildings generally cost less than the Interim and Steel buildings because they lack installation and there are no working at height regulations to consider.

Advantages when buying:

  • Can be re-located from site to site to site as often as needed
  • Retain good re-sale values should you ever wish to sell.
  • Very rarely if ever charged rates as it's classed as transient

Advantages when hiring:

  • No capital outlay ahead of installation
  • No maintenance costs when hiring as it's the responsibility of the company who supply it.
  • Can be hired for as little or long as you need on flexible terms
  • Tax deductible as plant hire to reduce profits and corporation tax.
  • No additional base/groundwork costs if it's to be erected on existing ground.


The following considerations need to be born in mind:
  • They depreciate in value over time
  • Borrowing from asset finance companies can be tricky due to the portability.
  • PVC roof covers deteriorate over time and should be replaced every 10 years
  • Potential for on-going maintenance issues / costs (Electric roof inflation pumps)
  • Very costly to heat and cool due to the lack of insulation of the PVC fabric roof.
