If you’ve found yourself working from home recently, a mobile office setup can help balance your home and work lives without the inconvenience of a daily commute.

With many companies still requiring their employees to remote or changing policies to more flexible work schedules, you might have found that you enjoy the freedom of WFH, but not the constant distractions from your family who are also at home.

Mobile office container rentals gives you the office environment needed to get your work done, while staying in a convenient area of your home without the hassle of traffic.

In this post, we’ll look at 3 ways to set up a mobile office.

3 Ways to Setup a Mobile Office

1. Type of mobile office layout

There are two types of mobile office layouts you can choose from, which depend on your office requirements. Will you be the only person working in the office or will your spouse also use it? Do you want your kids to have a quiet learning environment, but still have your own workspace?

Single offices are usually meant for 1 to 5 people and come in standard sizes of 10′, 20′ and 40′. These office containers can also be customized with add-ons and accessories like desktops, file cabinets, and shelving.

Combination offices can be either a combination of office and storage space or two offices that include a conference room that separates the two. Office combos allow for an extra area for storage, like office equipment.

The conference combination allows for small teams or departments to make sure of a meeting area or co-working space, with an office on either end.

Both the 20-foot and 40-foot offices allow for the office and storage combinations, but only the 40 foot is available for the two office and conference room combination.


2. Plan your utilities

Setting up your mobile office rental should be similar to the office environment that you’re used to. This makes it familiar and equally productive when you have items easily at hand.

Customization and modifications allow you to set up your mobile office in any way you prefer. Some of the popular utility choices can be:

  • AC/heating units
  • Windows
  • Security doors
  • Shelving
  • Electricity

Mobile office container rentals at Southwest Mobile Storage come equipped with AC/heating units, secured windows and doors, as well as a variety of add-ons.

3. Choose a location

Choosing a location for your mobile office rental is crucial. You want to ensure that the office not only fits in the area designated, but that it’s on level ground and won’t be blocked by obstacles, such as fencing or low hanging branches.
