Read This Before Renting a Port a Potty for Your Event or Jobsite

There’s a reason why the portable restroom et is expected to hit $29.66 billion in value by the year 2030. Whether it’s for a wedding event or a construction job site, port a potties are essential for giving people a clean place to do their business.

Sadly, many people make mistakes when renting a port a potty. Common ones include not getting the right number for your crowd, or working with the wrong type of company.

To help you avoid a bathroom fiasco, we made this guide for you. In it, we’ll break down everything you need to know about renting a port a potty for your next event or job.

Know How Many Port a Potties You’ll Need

The specific amount of port a potties you’ll require for your event or job site will depend on a variety of factors. This includes things like the amount of people attending or workers onsite, as well as the duration of the project or event.

In many cases, some regulations can dictate how many port a potties. For example, according to the OSHA regulation Standard 1915.88 you will need at least one port a potty if you have fifteen or fewer employees.

What’s more, for every additional twenty employees you will need to add another port a potty. We recommend reaching out to a rental company and describing what you need the toilets for.

That way, they can give you a more accurate estimate that’s in line with any local standards for event planning and management.

Decide on the Right Type of Port a Potty for Your Needs

If you require a portable toilet for your job site, then a standard-issue sanitary restroom is usually the way to go. However, if you’re hosting an event, you’ll likely need to look into additional types.

For example, large concerts need to invest in wheelchair-accessible port a potties for any disabled individuals that might attend. Similarly, if you’re hosting a party or wedding, then the standard issue port a potty might not be classy enough for the event.

In these cases, you should consider investing in portable luxury restrooms. These luxurious trailers come with stalls, air conditioning, and sinks, as well as gorgeous interiors.

While they’re a little fancy for job sites, they’re perfect for more formal events. Ideally, your portable bathroom provider will have a lot of different models you can choose from.

Remember Sanitation and Hand Washing

This is one frequent oversight when renting a port a potty. Many organizers will remember the toilet facilities, but forget sanitation and hand washing stations. This is a problem because the consequences of not washing your hands are well documented.

One solution is to invest in separate hand washing and/or hand sanitizing stations outside of the port a potties. At the very least, you’ll want to make sure that there are hand sanitizer pumps inside the port a potties.

These are important because the last thing you want is for your employees or attendees to get sick because they weren’t able to wash their hands.

Don’t Forget About Maintenance and Service

For most one-day events, you don’t need to worry about maintenance and servicing of your port a potties. However, for jobs that last days or even weeks, and music concerts or festivals that last the weekend, you’re going to need to consider when you’re going to clean them.

Make sure you organize this in advance with the rental company. You also don’t want to forget about essential supplies like toilet paper and hand sanitizer.

Factor in the Costs

The specific costs of port a potty rentals are going to vary widely from project to project. That’s because different port a potty models, the duration you’re renting, and the number of units can all influence the price. As such, it can help to get a budget set firmly upfront.

Contact a portable toilet rental company and ask them for a rough quote. If they refuse to give it to you, it’s a clear sign you should look elsewhere.

Understand the Cancellation Policy

You never know when factors like weather can cancel an outdoor event or job that requires port a potties. As such, you should be familiar with the rental company’s cancellation policy.

Different companies will have different policies so make sure you ask about them before filling out any contract.

Onsite Attendees

Onsite attendees responsible for setting up, cleaning, and restocking crowd amenities the restrooms can be invaluable on hectic event days.

These professionals provide a layer of security for preventing any bathroom disasters. As such, we recommend them for peace of mind at events like weddings.

How to Find the Best Port a Potty Provider

When you’re searching for a port a potty provider, it’s vital to do your research. The last thing you want is dirty facilities with graffiti all over them.

So you can start your search by looking for port a potty rental companies that operate in your service area. From there, you should look at their online reviews. This will give you a much better sense of what the average customer’s experience has been like.

If you notice the business has an overwhelming amount of poor online reviews, you should look elsewhere. Once you find a company, call them and describe your event or job project.

Pay close attention to how they respond. A good portable toilet company will listen closely and give you valuable recommendations about how many port a potties you’ll need. A bad company will leave you feeling unheard and unsure.
