Looking to rent portable toilets on a budget? Here are some tips to save money on your next portable restroom rental:
- Rent Locally
Most people think that if they use a national portable restroom service that they’ll save money because big companies can offer better rates. However, this isn’t usually the case. Large national companies typically just book rentals and then sub-contract local companies to provide the units. The result is that renters pay more for the units because the national company marks up the local company’s rental prices so that they can make a profit. That’s why it’s often less expensive to just rent from a local company directly.
- Rent More
Volume discounts can help you save money on a per unit basis, especially when renting many of the same type of unit. This is most often the case when the truck needed to bring out portable toilets has extra capacity. Don’t be afraid to ask your portable toilet supplier if there are specific quantities that can be rented to reduce the per unit cost. This is a great way to be cost effective while minimizing lines at your event.
- Rent Longer
Sometimes renting units for more time can substantially reduce the per day rate. This will depend on which (and how many) units are being rented, where they’re being delivered, how often they’ll need to be serviced, but keeping them longer may help provide additional value for your event.
- Add High-Capacity Holding Tanks
Waste holding tanks can be added to increase portable toilet capacity, reducing how often they need to be emptied. Depending on the nature of your event, adding these onto existing rentals can be a smart way to reduce cost while still providing enough bathroom options for the duration of your event.
- Shop Around
This may sound like an obvious tip, but comparison shopping is important when renting portable toilets. Keep in mind though while you shop around that you shouldn’t just be looking for the cheapest solution. Finding value is about getting the best solution for your needs at a reasonable price.
