History informs us that the nomadic Central Asian races - Turks, Mongols, etc. were the first to use mobile homes. The traditional names for their mobile homes were ‘yurt’ (Turkic) and ‘ger’ (Mongolian). These mobile homes are still in use in remote parts of central Asia and are mostly made up of wood and animal hides.
Nowadays, mobile buildings are usually made up of factory-made modular blocks. Wood is the preferred construction material along with concrete, granite stones and steel. Modern mobile buildings generally possess similar amenities as available in traditionally built homes.
There are multiple reasons why mobile buildings are popular for both residential and commercial purposes.

You have your office set up in a portable building. You have your sales team operating from the portable building. It contains all the necessary documents. The portable office also contains your business logo and other branding essentials. You can easily take advantage of your office’s portability.
