Portable Cabin Relocation

Portable Cabin Relocation

in Oxford, Reading and the Surrounding Areas

Portable cabins are popular for a variety of uses, such as temporary site offices and classrooms. Modular buildings have also been growing in popularity thanks to their versatility, speed of construction and other benefits. One of the main attractions of cabins and modular structures is the ability to move them. For this, you need trained and experienced professionals. BR Saunders Transport Ltd undertakes portable cabin relocation as well as the relocation of modular buildings. Whether you need to move a cabin across your current site or across the country, we deliver reliable, safe and efficient solutions.

With a headquarters in Walton-on-Thames, we work with clients across a broad service area. This includes Chelmsford, Crawley, Dartford, Guildford, Maidstone, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Reading, Southampton and Tunbridge Wells. Transporting portable cabins and modular buildings can be much more complicated and dangerous than you may think. As such, it’s essential to follow the correct process. With many years of experience in the logistics and haulage industry, we have the skills, training and resources to make portable cabin relocation as easy and stress free as possible.

The Process

When relocating portable and modular buildings, we follow a step by step process to ensure safety and efficiency. This process includes:

  • Dismantling – We can transport some portable buildings whole, but others will need dismantling into smaller sections which are easier to load and move.
  • Relocating – Once disconnection and dismantling services are complete, your building is ready for relocation. Our trained lorry mounted crane operators lift sections onto one of our specialist vehicles using the in-built crane. We then transport your cabin or modular building to your desired location.
  • Reassembly – After arriving at the relocation site, we lift the building from the trailer and reassemble it.

To ensure portable cabin relocation goes smoothly, it’s vital to hire dedicated professionals, such as BR Saunders Transport Ltd. Our employees receive thorough training and we offer all services in accordance with LOLER and ALLMI.

Our relocation services include route planning, traffic management and event support, so you have everything you need for a safe, efficient and compliant relocation.

Working across Chelmsford, Crawley, Dartford, Guildford, Maidstone, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Reading, Southampton and Tunbridge Wells, we get your portable or modular building where it needs to be.

Transportation Risks

As you might expect, there are certain risks involved when transporting large and heavy items. With proper training and years of experience, we minimise risks on each job. As well as ensuring safe disconnections, the dismantling and reassembly of modular structures needs to follow a certain order. Failure to do so can be dangerous and cause damage to the building.

A lot of the potential risks come from the loading, unloading and transportation processes. At BR Saunders Transport Ltd, we minimise the dangers of portable cabin relocation by:

  • Following proper lifting procedures
  • Using suitable vehicles and lifting equipment
  • Assigning an appointed person to oversee lifting operations
  • Properly securing cabins and buildings using suitable methods and equipment
  • Providing trained and experienced drivers and crane operators
  • Notifying Highways England
