MOBO’s design is simple, but its simplicity is its greatest asset. Honomobo makes it as easy as possible to use their mobile office wherever you need.

What is MOBO?

MOBO is a shipping container office for sale that offers 96 square feet of space.

Honomobo calls it a “plug and play office for your yard,” and that’s exactly what it is. It’s a quick and easy solution for your home office needs.

To create their new office, Honomobo takes 1/3 of a shipping container and transforms it into office space. You can choose to have one end of glass or two.

All you have to do is plug your MOBO into an outlet, and you’re ready to start working. The great thing about this mobile office is that it’s just 96 square feet, so it’s a movable structure. This means that you likely won’t even need a permit to place it in on your property.

It takes just 6 weeks to deliver your office. Honomobo makes it easy as filling out an online order form to get your new MOBO office. All MOBO offices are backed by a 1-year warranty.

The Process

The ordering and delivery process is quick and easy. Here’s how it works:

  1. Put down a $2,500 deposit to confirm your reservation.
  2. A Honomono representative will contact you to confirm the shipping and install options.
  3. Pay the remainder of the cost of your MOBO and shipping costs.
  4. Build your MOBO (6 weeks).
  5. Delivery and unloading.
  6. Start working.

MOBO offices are delivered on flatbed trucks. A crane, forklift or zoom boom can be used to place your office in your desired location. The office will sit on 4×4 blocks.

Honomobo will even take care of the coordination from the factory to your property for an additional fee of $1,000 and cost plus 15%.

What About a Foundation?

Honomobo designed its MOBO to be as easy to install as possible. Their mobile office can be placed on a slab foundation, foundation blocks or even crushed gravel. Because it’s not a permanent structure, you likely won’t need a permit to place the office on your property.

Shipping Container Office Options and Upgrades

Honomobo makes it easy to figure out the cost of your MOBO and is also transparent about the options and upgrades available.

To make your life easier, Honomobo offers a simple cost estimator.

The estimator takes into account the shipping distance, cost, upgrades and other features that affect the cost of the office.

Floor Plan Options
