About us

The staff at Britcab provide some important benefits to your business:
The Best Website in the Industry – We are upfront and honest when it comes to listing and describing the units we have available. If they are in reasonable condition we say so! We offer very competitive pricing and try and get as many internal and external pictures of each unit as we can. As we are generally very busy and have a large amount of cabins coming and going every week the website is not always 100% up to date so if you can’t find what you’re looking for, drop us an email on
Personal Attention – When you buy or hire low cost portable cabins and cost effective modular buildings from us you will receive the personal attention of a member of staff who has invested interest in the business and are therefore committed to providing you with exceptional service from conception to completion of your project.
Experience – Our management team have a combined experience of over 100 years in the portable building industry which means you can be reassured we will not commit to any temporary building project that is not practical and we will always point out any issues which need to be overcome.
Knowledge – We have been involved in many large and small scale projects over the years from multi-storey modular buildings to small portable cabins and are fully aware of all the points that need to be addressed at the planning stage of the project.
Contacts – Our large list of contacts in the business means that if we haven’t got the used temporary building for you we can usually find it!
People’s People – We get on with all our customers and gain their respect by providing a service you can rely on.
