Larger Mobile Office Trailers
Most mobile office trailers generally range in width from 8 to 12 feet. If your mobile trailer is larger, it will require more anchors to secure it than a smaller trailer. When determining if you need to use anchors to secure your mobile office trailer, you have to look at the weight of the trailer as well as the height-width ratio. In most cases, if your trailer is resting directly on the ground, it is heavy and will not require anchors to stabilize it.
Use of the Trailer
The purpose of your office trailer is another factor that determines whether you need to use anchors or not. If you plan to use your trailer as a job site office, anchors may not be necessary. If you plan to utilize your mobile office trailer for commercial purposes, then you may need to go through a permit approval process, which may require you to use anchors.
Tips for Placing Your Mobile Office Trailer
For safer, more secure installation of your mobile office trailer, it is crucial to place your trailer on level ground that is made of asphalt, gravel, and compressed dirt. You can also use cement, but you will need to use special anchors to secure your trailer to the surface.
Before you install your mobile trailer, be sure to have the underground utilities marked to avoid damage. At Dear John Trailer Rental, we have a large selection of quality mobile office trailers and a team of experts that can help you find the best option for your mobile establishment.
