What Sets Kerkstra Apart from Other Portable Restroom Suppliers?

You have heard of Kerkstra Portable Restroom Service, but do you know why we’re West Michigan’s premier portable restroom company? The reason we’ve been in business for so long is because people can trust us to service their events professionally with top-notch equipment. Find out more below!

Superior Maintenance

After every job, our portable restrooms are pumped out and thoroughly cleaned by our service guys. We keep our units in great shape so that you don’t have to be embarrassed to have them at your event! Before we drop them off at your location we’ll ensure that they are stocked with toilet paper and hand sanitizer so you won’t run out mid-event.


When you search online, you may come across companies that claim that they’re local but in reality they just run ads in each local market and then contract the jobs out to local companies when they get your business (and mark up the price so that they make a profit). We’re located in Hudsonville, Michigan and service the whole state as a portable toilet supplier. When you work with us, you’re getting out staff and our equipment to do the job, which means that the service is more reliable and the price is lower.

Our porta potties can be seen at events all across Michigan and our luxury restroom trailers go all over the Great Lakes states year-round servicing weddings, concerts, festivals and parties.

5 Summer Birthday Bash Essentials

If you’re planning a birthday bash for a friend or family member, you want to bring everything together perfectly to create an event that everyone will remember. But what do you need to pull off a legendary get together? Throwing a great summer birthday party requires a few key essentials:

  1. Live Music
  2. Great music can set the stage for an amazing party. Hiring a local band is a fun way to bring in some regional talent to entertain guests and create a unique experience for the birthday guy or gal. Live music is the best way to go because everyone loves rocking out to a live band, but if that isn’t in the budget a great playlist will suffice.

  3. Great Food
  4. Delicious food makes a party! People love cook outs in the summer and having a BBQ allows you to make food as people get hungry so that partygoers can keep eating throughout the event. Firing up the grill gives you the option to make a wide variety of foods to suit various guest preferences and opens up the opportunity for guests to bring sides and desserts to accompany the meal.

    Michigan is famous for their craft beers, so having some of these on tap for guests that are of age is a great way to incorporate some local flavor. Depending on the size of the party, you may want to get a keg or some growlers full of local brew.

  5. Games and Attractions
  6. Tailgating games are popular for outdoor summer parties. Games like cornhole, ladder toss, washers and Frisbee are fun for guests of all ages. Having lots to do ensures that people will find plenty of things to keep them entertained and having a good time no matter how late the party goes.

  7. Fire
  8. A fire pit or bonfire is a great way to bring people together. As the sun sets, a fire pit or bonfire will keep guests warm, provide illumination and also allow the opportunity for s’mores and other campfire-style desserts. Fires also encourage community as people gather around them and hang out.

  9. Luxury Restrooms
  10. Lastly, luxury restrooms will take your birthday party to a whole new level. Instead of asking guests to use regular porta potties (or, shiver, the woods), you can treat your guests to a luxury restroom trailers that have flushing toilets, running water, lighting and climate control. You’ll definitely be able to potty like a rock star with these fancy party restrooms.

Avoiding Wedding Budget Busters

The cost of weddings continues to increase, causing more brides to look for budget-friendly wedding options. Even couples that have the money in the bank to throw a lavish wedding often look for places where they can save some cash so that they can set aside funds for a honeymoon and/or home purchase later on.

If you’re looking for ways to create your dream wedding on a budget, there are some costly items that you should avoid. But the good news is that there are clever options that you can choose for your big day instead. Consider these budget buster alternatives as you plan your upcoming wedding:

Wedding Venue

A lot of people think that they need to book an expensive wedding venue to have an elegant formal wedding, but more and more the these days the trend is to have your wedding at a more rustic venue and make it luxurious with the items that you bring in. Having your wedding at a farm or on the coast is a great way to save money and can feel much more personal than having your wedding at a professional wedding venue. By bringing in a large tent, catering and luxury portable restroom trailers, you can create the same elegance of a formal event in a much more unique setting.


Wedding favors are big business these days, with the average favor costing anywhere from $3-8 per person, which can really add up if you’re having a large wedding. Instead of buying wedding favors, making small favors for each of your guests is a great way to add a personal touch to your wedding while saving money.


Just like the wedding favors, your table centerpieces can be homemade creations that will look great and save you money. Pillar candles are a popular choice, as are natural materials like seashells or pinecones (depending on the season). You can go online to find great ideas or brose your local craft store for bargains that will look great on table tops.


Instead of hiring a professional photographer, you can encourage guests to take the pictures for your wedding albums. Let’s face it, your friends and family will be taking pictures anyway, so why not encourage them by having a digital camera station where guests can take pictures of each other and the happy newlyweds? You’ll save money and your guests will have a lot of fun taking part your the memories.


Many brides go all out with their wedding dresses – splurging on expensive white gowns that they will just wear once. However, some brides choose to buy a wedding dress that they can wear again because they want to be able to recapture the feeling that they had on their wedding day again at other formal occasions. Don’t be afraid to go against tradition and choose a wedding dress that isn’t white – find a color and style that will make you want to wear it again and again. Selecting a nice party dress instead of a wedding gown can free up a lot of room in the budget!
