If you are considering buying a pre-owned modular building, it’s important to:

  1. Weigh the cost of used modules against that of new modular buildings. While you can often save 10% to 40%, the cost of a new modular building may not be substantially more and would allow you to get exactly what you want with a better warranty. Is set-up included in the price or will you pay extra for it.
  2. Check the condition. If the modular buildings were maintained properly, they should be able to continue serving your needs for a long time. Find out if the modules you are interested in will need repainting, repairs or renovations of any kind so you can factor in the additional expense. If repairs have already been done, find out if the seller will provide a warranty
  3. Prepare the delivery site. Do you already have a prepared foundation for your modular building? Many modular manufacturers can take care of this for you so that your site is ready for delivery. Also, some pre-owned structures require conditional use permits, so call the building department of your city or town to find out. City building codes have requirements for safety and other factors depending on the intended use of the building.
