Renting portable restrooms for a big event is one of the most important comforts you could provide for your guests. However, amidst planning your event and gearing up for the big day, it’s understandable that the porta potty rental process could seem daunting at first glance.
At Texas Johns, we believe that portable restroom rentals should be the easiest part of your behind the scenes plans. Here are some of our step-by-step tips that will help make your rental experience a pleasant one.
Prepare Your Event Details Ahead of Time
The first thing any rental company is going to want to know is the details of your event. So, before you even start looking for a porta-potty rental, make sure that you have all of the essentials ready to go!
Here’s what your porta potty rental company will need to know:
- What kind of event are you hosting?
- How many people do you expect to show up to your event?
- Where is the event located?
- How long will your event take?
With those questions answered, you and any potential rental companies will have a clear picture of the cost of renting for your event, the type of portable restrooms you may need, and most importantly, how many porta-potties will comfortably accommodate your guests.
Secure Any Necessary Permits
Before you drop a deposit on portable restrooms, it’s always essential to ensure that you’ve secured any permits a rental requires. Keep in mind where your event will take place. Is it a private gathering? Will you have hundreds of people in attendance?
Really, numbers are what matters when it comes to determining if a permit is necessary. If you are just hosting a small event on your property and you need some portable restrooms, a permit is probably not necessary.
However, if your portable restrooms move onto the street or you’re hosting a gathering that exceeds hundreds of people in attendance, a permit through your local authorities is required.
It’s always better to ask and be safe than to be hit with a large fine for violating any regulations in place.
Ask About Amenities
Sure, you want any potential portable restroom rental company to have larger restroom trailers and ACA accessible units. However, make sure to take your expectations to the next level and ask about other essential amenities and options your event may need.
Some of the following amenities we provide to help keep any event we serve clean and safe:
- Hand sanitizing stations
- Hand washing stations
- Holding tank rentals
- Comfort suite restroom trailers
- Regularly scheduled maintenance
Review Your Contract’s Fine Print
Before you jump into a partnership with a portable restroom rental company, make sure that they will provide all of the essentials when you need them.
Review your contract to learn about their delivery schedule, how they determine restroom placement, how often they maintain their restrooms, and what their process is for cleanup and removal.
You should never have to deal with the stress of being surprised by an unreliable vendor. So, double-check your contract and be certain that the decision you’re making is worth the financial investment.
