Purchasing and leasing are both popular options for modular buildings - the decision rests largely on your intended use of the space. Portable classrooms, for instance, are more often leased, since their use is more temporary.

Firms looking for inexpensive and fast alternatives to traditional construction may choose prefabricated buildings for permanent structures, and will usually buy the building outright.

It's important to understand that pricing for modular buildings varies tremendously, based on the size and extras you choose. Below are real-life examples of what BuyerZone users paid.
