A used inplant office, also known as a used modular office, is a cost effective solution and a customizable way to add offices to your storage facility. It is a great way to make the most out of an already existing space while saving money when compared to costly conventional renovations. Traditional construction of a new office area can be up to twice as expensive as constructing a modular office. Modular inplant offices can be used for any type of office setting, including lunch rooms, computer rooms, break rooms, conference rooms, bathrooms, etc.
A few of the benefits of a used inplant office include:
Depending on the size and the complexity of the design, a modular inplant office can be assembled within a week. Standard modular offices can be purchased, or they can be customized to work around certain obstacles within your storage or material handling facility.
American Surplus sells new and used in plant offices that use a modular construction method. This means that the office can be reconfigured, disassembled, and moved to a new location extremely quickly. This allows your office space to grow alongside your business instead of your business being confined by your office space.
Used and new inplant offices qualify for accelerated depreciation over seven years instead of the typical 39.5 years, which will result in a tax savings of about 32%. In most situations, a modular office is considered equipment, instead of an improvement to the property. An improvement to the property raises the value of that property, meaning more has to be paid in taxes. Equipment like a modular office is considered a capital asset because it has a useful life of more than one year. Capital assets can be deducted against gross income, which lessens your tax burden for that year.
Take Advantage of Verticality:
Does your storage facility or warehouse have high ceilings? If so, and if that space isn’t already being utilized, you can install a used inplant office on top of a mezzanine. This will effectively add a floor to an already existing structure, and allow for a “bird’s eye” view of the facility. The area below the mezzanine can be utilized as additional storage space or offices. Used Modular inplant offices are code compliant, meaning they meet fire codes and other building standards.
