If you’re planning an event, you’re likely evaluating different portable restroom suppliers, but are you comparing the right features? Most people just look at price and assume that the other details are basically the same. However, this is a big mistake!
Restroom services can vary widely based on the provider, so you need to know what to look for! Otherwise, you can end up spending more money later or having your event ruined when the units you rent fail to live up to expectations.
These are the top 5 things that every portable toilet supplier should provide for your event:
- Quality Service
Before you book anything, you should have a positive experience with the toilet supplier you’re using. Everyone you deal with should be friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. If they can’t give you a straight answer to your questions, or help you determine exactly what you need for your event, you should look elsewhere. The company you choose should also have enough experience with similar events that they can consult on what will work best, possibly even suggesting different options (like luxury restroom trailers) that you may not have considered.
- High Quality Units
The toilet units themselves should match the expectations that the portable restroom supplier has set, which means that they should be well-maintained and arrive clean. If the units that you’re going to rent look old or beat up, it’s likely that the company that owns them hasn’t taken proper care of them (which can be indicative of their overall business practices). The units should all arrive stocked with sanitary fluid in the tank, toilet paper on the roll, and hand sanitizer in the pumps. Missing any of these key essentials or having dirty interiors indicates that the supplier didn’t take the time to properly clean them after the last rental.
- Proper Placement
At the event, the restroom units should be placed out of the way so that they don’t attract too much attention. You want them to be conveniently placed, but not the start of the event. They should be readily accessible to attendees (this is especially true of ADA compliant units). Toilets should be placed on dry, level ground as well to avoid tipping over.
- Clean Units
After every rental, toilet units must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Without a proper cleaning, messes and smells can linger, creating an unpleasant experience for users. This requires using the right products to get the job done effectively.
Don’t choose a fly-by-night company! Trust your event to a team of experienced professionals. Companies that specialize in rented restrooms instead of offering it on the side are more dependable and have better equipment to choose from for your event. Rely on a supplier with a longstanding reputation for excellence instead of one that just offers the lowest price to ensure that your event will go off without a hitch.
