Pac-Van Modular Review

Pac-Van Modular started its operations in 1993 with the goal of becoming a shipping container business that customers wanted to do business with. The company has grown from one office in Ohio to over 50 across Canada and the United States.

Pac-Van, Inc

The company has since combined businesses with United Rentals to offer customers multiple solutions:

FAST Buildings

FAST buildings scale with your needs and allow for new sections to be added without major interruptions. If you need to expand operations in the future, these buildings are ideal. You can add hundreds of square feet in hours and have a configuration that includes a front, middle and restroom section.

Custom Buildings or Containers

Unique business solutions can also be built with Pac-Van. Custom modular buildings can serve businesses of all sizes, with the most common industries using these buildings already, including:

  • Auto dealerships
  • Banks
  • Fast food restaurants
  • Fine dining restaurants
  • Fitness centers
  • Sales centers
  • So much more

Custom containers allow for high-end buildings with extendable ceiling heights, concrete floors, noise reduction and more. Pac-Van Modular can even fill the space with furniture for a true, turnkey solution.

Modular Office Buildings

Modular office buildings provide state-of-the-art design and planning options with your choice of materials. Construction can be done offsite while onsite prep work is complete, so you can be in your office faster.

A variety of standard floor plans and customizable options are available.

Standard modular offices come with the option to add:

  • Extended ceiling heights
  • Concrete floors
  • Noise-reduction insulation
  • Non-combustible materials
  • Sprinklers

Lease and purchase options are available. Offices are ideal for classrooms, retail shops, research facilities, sales offices and more.

Storage Containers for Rent or Sale

Storage is in high demand, and Pac-Van provides multiple storage container solutions to better meet the needs of its customers. The company realizes the need for additional storage is constant, and they serve customers in virtually every market.

Customers already securing storage containers for rent or purchase include:

  • Apartment complexes
  • Universities
  • Contractors
  • Retailers
  • Construction companies
  • Special event businesses
  • More

Containers with lengths of 20’ and 40’ are available throughout North America. Multiple sizes and customization options are available at some locations. Used or temporary containers are available, too.

Pac-Van knows that the competition offers subpar storage container solutions.

The company’s units have all been weather-proofed and contain 14-gauge steel with wood floors and cam rods. In industries where theft and safety are a concern, there are rod locks available for monthly rentals that are near indestructible and will work very well.

Customization options for containers are available, including:

  • Adding doors
  • Solar lighting
  • Insulation
  • Shelving
  • Windows
  • Vents
  • Partitioning
  • More

All units meet the NPSA requirements and have been tested for water and wind tightness. When received, you can be confident that the units are fully cleaned and refurbished if they’re used.

If you don’t request customization, storage containers can be shipped in 24 – 72 hours.

All containers have a standard width of 8’ and a height of 8’6”.

Multiple rental durations are available with discounts for longer rental terms. Purchasing makes the most sense if you need years of storage and don’t want to commit to a long-term rental.

Pac-Van Guard Shacks

Security guards need their own space and are integral to the safety and security of manufacturing plants, aviation centers and more. Pac-Van guard shacks offer:

  • Ground-level entrances
  • Ramps
  • HVAC units
  • Lighting
  • Outlets

Several customization options are available to meet the safety and security requirements of any business.

Located near access points and common entrances, these buildings can be used as ticket booths, scale houses, parking staff offices, security personnel stations, in-plant offices and more.

Lease and purchase options are available, too.

Ample space is available to house multiple guards or add an interior office. Whether you need a 10’ x 20’ shack or something larger, Pac-Van can accommodate most needs.

Mobile Office Trailers

Portable office trailers allow for easy transport between work sites and are quite common in the movie, construction and event industries. These trailers are DOT-approved and can be relocated with ease.

Sizing options range from 8’ x 24’ to as large as 12’ x 60’.

Mobile offices have built-in cabinets and drawers, and they’re delivered, cleaned and reconditioned. Aluminum siding and heavy steel construction ensure that each mobile office trailer is durable and can withstand transport.

Wood siding is available on the West Coast.

You can customize these trailers with multiple exterior options, such as:

  • Awnings
  • Decks
  • Ramps
  • Railing
  • Security systems
  • Steps (OSHA-compliant)

Skirting is also available. No modification delivery is between 24 and 72 hours, but more time is needed for custom solutions. You can also upgrade the trailer to have commercial carpeting and glass doors, mansard roofing, VCG walls or T1-11 wooden siding.

Customers who do not know what type of mobile trailer they need will have access to the experts at Pac-Van. The company works to understand the needs of customers and then provides recommendations on the best solution to meet their functional needs.

The team will discuss many of the additional options available and sizes to find the perfect solution within a business’s budget.

Security bars, windows and even restrooms can be added, too.

Pac-Van Modular offers numerous modular options to fit into every business’s plan. Whether you need a temporary office while your main one is being built or need a permanent modular, Pac-Van has options in nearly every industry.
