If you are hosting an outdoor event that requires you to rent a portable toilet, you must invest time in researching the company you rent from to ensure that you have the full-range of services you require. Below are just a few things to take into consideration when selecting a company to rent your portajohn or portable toilet trailer from.

Range Of Options

You first want to consider the range of options the company you are looking at has to offer. The formality of your event will help you to determine if you would prefer a portajohn or a toilet trailer—but sometimes you may require both. Also consider whether separate hand washing units and hygiene aids are available, and what is required to ensure that toilet trailers have the electricity and lighting you require. Don’t forget to ask how the toilets are serviced during particularly long events, events in warm weather, and events with a large number of guests.

Timely Delivery and Setup

The outdoor event or party you are planning is likely to require quite a bit of set up, above and beyond your portajohn rental. Since portable toilet rentals are a large item to be delivered and setup, you must ensure you are renting from a reliable company who understands the importance of timeliness—both when setting up, and taking down. They must also be able to quickly solve common problems such as how to set up on somewhat uneven ground, and delivering to areas that are a bit narrow.

Cleanliness during the Event

The next thing you want to consider is what type of cleaning services are provided during your event. This includes restocking toilet paper and paper towels, cleaning the portajohns and managing odor. If you select a toilet trailer you may have someone nearby at all times, but if you select a portajohn rental you must determine if the frequency of cleaning and restocking meets your needs and expectations.

Customer Service Response Time

If troubles arise during your event, you need to know what the average customer service response time is. Since your event may occur on the weekends, during the evening, or in somewhat remote areas—it is important that you know what to expect if a problem arises. Ask if they have a number that will direct you to customer services during your event, and directly before and after your event.

Can They Help You To Determine Your Needs?

There are many reasons that you may need to rent a portable toilet. Although you know you need a rental, you may not be clear as to how many toilets—or what types of toilets will best meet your needs. A reputable company will discuss factors with you such as:

  • The weather
  • The formality of your event
  • The length of your event
  • The number of guests in attendance
  • The nearest toilets other than your rental
  • If portable toilets will be used to complement the indoor toilets
  • The logistics
  • The pros and cons of different types of portable toilets
  • Toilet placement
  • Hygiene needs
