Transcripts - Portable Bathroom Rental Checklist
Are you planning to hold a large event soon? Renting portable toilets is a smart decision as it provides you with the right convenience needed for your guests to enjoy the event. How do you select the right company to provide you with the best service needed? Here are some things that will help you make the right decision when it comes to choosing a portable toilet company.
HOW MANY TOILETS DO YOU NEED?
This can be the hardest part for a lot of people to decide as you will need to calculate the number of guests that are planning to attend. Typically, one portable restroom will allow for 200 uses during a 4 hour span. Most companies will provide you with a portable restroom usage chart to help you determine how many restrooms you need. Some things that will impact the number of restrooms needed include the following; how long is the event, will food be served at the event, is there a water supply at the event? All of these things can impact how many toilets are needed to provide your guests with the services they need.
WHERE SHOULD YOU PLACE THE TOILETS?
SHOULD YOU ADD AMENITIES?
DO YOU NEED PERMITS?
Figuring out where to place the toilets can be challenging for many people as it varies based on the event. Do you want them too close to the event? If you put them too far away, it will be inconvenient for your guests. A restroom needs to be placed in an area that is convenient as you don’t want to make people walk too far away.
The toilets need to be placed on a dry, level-ground area. The toilets need to be placed within 15 ft. of where the service trucks are able to gain access.
The event can be fun and enjoyable, but it can be annoying for guests if you do not provide amenities that make the event nicer. Simple things like adding hand sanitizer can provide your guests with a nice addition. There are a variety of amenities you can select from when you are deciding on which portable toilets to rent.
Some versions of portable toilets will include flushing systems while others will include mirrors, sinks, and other things that give the toilet some extra upgrades to impress your guests.
When you host an event at a public venue, you will need to find out if you need a permit. There are portable sanitation permits that the city will provide for you to use the portable toilets. You do need to find out how many toilets you need before you obtain the permit needed to host the event.
DIFFERENT WAYS TO ACCOMODATE GUESTS
KEEPING THE RESTROOM CLEAN
Not all restrooms are designed to help people with special needs or for children. There are some restrooms designed to assist with these needs. If you know you will have several guests of this manner, you need to rent several restrooms that are designed to help those individuals.
Under The American with Disabilities Act, for every 5 non-ADA compliant portable toilets, a company must provide at least 1 restroom for handicapped individuals.
It is important to keep the restroom clean and sanitary to prevent a number of health violations. Keep the restrooms clean by sending someone to clean them every hour. A bathroom attendant is the best way to make sure they are staying clean, and well- stocked.
Most companies providing portable toilets can recommend a toilet cleaning agent, or they can supply an attendant for your event.
MULTIPLE DAY EVENTS
Search for modern portable toilets that provide your guests with the right convenience you need to make your event stand out. Flushable systems are beneficial as it does show modern convenience that most guests are used to.
Don’t forget to include hand sanitizer as it does provide guests with additional cleanliness and helps to reduce the spread of germs.
A multiple day event is something that you need to consider when selecting the portable toilets. For longer events consider a luxury portable toilet trailer that will make it easy to move the toilets around and have them cleaned.
These trailers will include holding tanks for larger events so they can go a longer time without needing to be cleaned.
FINDING THE RIGHT PORTABLE TOILET COMPANY
When you are planning a party or event, it pays to hire the right company to bring the portable toilets. You need a company that can deliver and set up the portable toilets on time and will be able to handle the clean-up and take-away in a timely manner as well.
Review customer testimonials and reviews as they can help you to gain an understanding of the company and if they are respected by others.
