Renting a Luxury Restroom Trailer for the First Time – What to Expect

Renting luxury portable toilets can be intimidating for the first time, so we’ve compiled a list of things to expect to help set you at ease. Keep in mind that the specific details will vary from one portable toilet supplier to another, but this should give you a general sense of what you can expect:


A rental company should provide you with the utmost professionalism every step of the way – from getting back to you when you request a quote to giving you accurate pricing, you should feel valued and respected from the very beginning. Once you’ve booked your rental, the professionalism should carry into your delivery, serving, and pickup of your rental unit(s). Units should be delivered on time, placed in the correct location, and be serviced and ready to use. If you have long event that requires servicing during the festivities, that should be done with minimal interruption. After your event is over, the units should be picked up promptly (this isn’t usually a problem because a portable restroom service provider will likely want to get them turned around quickly and off to their next location). If at any point you feel that the service you’re receiving doesn’t live up to what you were expecting, don’t feel bad about discussing it with the provider.

A Clean and Inviting Interior

Any unit(s) that you rent should be clean both inside and out. This will make attendees want to use the units and not have to worry about whether it’s going to be clean/safe to do so. They should also be fully restocked with toilet paper, soap, paper towels, hand sanitizer, and anything else that they typically come with so that they don’t run out during your rental period. This will ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible throughout the entirety of the event.

Elegant Details

One of the main reasons for renting a luxury portable restroom instead of just a bank of portable toilets is to get the upscale feel that elegant details provide. Things like wooden cabinetry, accent rugs, hanging wall art, full sized mirrors, recessed lighting, and faux plants provide the small touches that add up to create an experience that feels more like a hotel lobby than a porta john. If you’re renting a unit because you particularly like the look of it as pictured or described on a portable toilet supplier website, the unit that you receive should live up to that expectation.

Future Events

This is a warning – if you rent luxury restrooms for your event, you may never go back! With all of the positive feedback you’re going to get and the positive experience you’ll have yourself, you’re also going to be more likely to want to plan another event right away and use the same bathrooms again. This may mean turning your event into an annual occurrence, or that your friends, family, and colleagues will want you to help plan their events too. So just expect that this will happen and embrace it!
