Today, the options available to hire portable toilets while planning outdoor events are plenty. With countless portable suppliers available, customers with little or no experience in planning and renting portable toilets can find it difficult to choose the right rental partner. To help ensure you find a suitable partner to make your event successful is to do some homework.
Part of your research for identifying a portable toilet rental partner consists of knowing what to ask for. The following include a few of those ‘must ask’ questions before you choose a portable toilet renting partner.
Question #1: What is the Number of Portable Toilets That I Require?
This is the first question to ask any portable rental toilet service provider. Ideally, you should be presented with a rough estimate based on the duration of the event you are hosting. A good toilet rental company will provide you with a fair idea of the number of portable toilets that you might require, after analyzing the number of guests, the duration of the event and whether alcohol will be consumed.
Question #2: What Will be the Cost of the Rental Services Hired?
Once you have an idea of the number of portable toilets you require the next important question should be on how much would the rental portable toilet service cost? Instead of going with the cheapest option, be sure what the price includes for example, does it include delivery, cleaning, collection after the event, damage etc.
Question #3: How Often Are These Portable Toilets Cleaned?
It is needless to say portable toilets should be cleaned as frequently as your restrooms at home. Although this is not a concern for events of shorter durations, long-duration events require timely maintenance of the rented portable toilets. So, enquire whether your rental partner offers the required support throughout your event.
Question #4: How Many Times Can You Use the Portable Toilets Before Emptying the Tanks?
The tanks of portable toilets have limited and varying capacity. Although these are regularly emptied by your rental partner or any other sanitation service provider, it is important to know how often they should be emptied, how the tank effluent is treated and if they are regularly wiped out with a sanitizer to prevent unpleasant odors.
Question #5: How is the Waste Disposed?
Although you are not responsible for disposing the waste of the rented portable toilets, it is good practice to know how the waste will be emptied and disposed. Reputed rental toilet suppliers dispose at certified wastewater treatment plants. Knowing this will prevent you from worrying about polluting your environment.
Renting portable toilets can be more complicated than what people expect, it is better to ask questions even about the smallest details. So, the next time you plan to rent out portable toilets make sure you seek answers to all the above questions and have a great event.
