Mobile office trailers have been used for expanding schools with additional classrooms, construction contracting space, overflow storage space and even store fronts. Wilmot Modular has implemented new ways to bring customization to these trailers, no matter the business going on in them.

Whether you’ve been a long time mobile officer worker, or have a startup business and want to consider a mobile office as an option for growth, keep reading!

Below is a non-exhaustive list of features, options and capabilities you can choose from for your space and workers to keep productivity flowing.


Let’s start with what is generally included in mobile office trailers.


General Mobile Office Features

When driving by almost any mobile office outside of a school or business, you’ll see similar and basic features. They’ll be around the same size in length and width, some will be connected for a larger space. They all have an A/C unit and heating, and most have the same exterior and interior design, or don’t stray far from it. Usually there is one door and a simple electrical wiring plan inside.


But did you know…

These features can be expanded and additional benefits can be added to meet your specific needs and wants. Some bonuses to consider are:

A Kitchenette

Everyone wants that coffee station! Having the option to bring lunch to work rather than going out every day not only adds convenience for your employees but also helps create culture within the work place…people hover around food! 

Multiple Entrance Points

For busy, moving spaces, like classrooms, construction sites or mail facilities, it’s important to have a flow of traffic. Deeming one door an entrance and another door an exit will help with organizing workflow.


It’s a necessity of life. Having a bathroom facility close by is not only going to get you a huge thank you from your workers, but will also save time. Imagine having to drive, feeling very uncomfortable, to the nearest public restroom.

Vinyl vs. Woodgrain Paneling

Depending on your preference for aesthetic appeal, which paneling looks the best for your business? Long gone are the days of plywood walls or the inside steel of a shipping container. Fancy it up with interior design which will also allow you to add your choice of insulation!

Demountable Hitch

Thinking of relocating? There’s the option of bringing your newly acquired business space with you by adding on a hitch for when you need to pack up and move on.

Larger Interior Space

It’s easy to assume the space of an office trailer can only be rectangular and a specific length and width however, mobile offices can be built up and out! Here are examples of layouts available. 

Full Electrical Wiring

Here's an example of multiple plug-in points. Don't worry about having to get extension cords, the number of outlets needed for your work is NOT too much to ask for.
