Porta potties serve events beyond festivals, parties, barbecues, and outdoor weddings. These are just short-term events, and when the day is done, the portable restrooms get shipped back to where they came from. But what about the events and projects that take longer than 24 hours? There is another set of rules for those moments. Read on to learn what you need to know about long-term porta-potty rentals.
Long-term portable restrooms are not your standard porta-potties. Don’t expect to see the regular plastic one-door units that are so common at outdoor festivals. With these rentals, the options vary a little bit.
You have the choice between a standard rental and a luxury rental. Both are great options and offer more amenities than short-term portable bathrooms. Luxury trailers feature a flushable toilet, working sink, trash can, and full-length mirror. They make using the washroom outdoors seem like an indoor experience.
The prices will vary on these units because the rental terms and agreements are longer than the standard ones. However, most companies have a set rate for their long-term portable bathrooms. It’s always a good idea to consider a few different companies and compare quotes.
Choose one that works well with your budget and see what amenities and deals are associated with their prices. You need to know if they offer maintenance services and how often they’ll come out to inspect the units.
The restrooms need to be stationary for a while. Therefore, you need to know where you are allowed to station the units. Depending on your circumstances, you might need to secure street and city permits. Ask the company you choose if they have any recommendations or know of the requirements.
You can also investigate before choosing a company. If you leave the trailers in a parking lot, you need to consider the commercial business’s operation hours. You also might want to look into some additional security. Most cities will not allow these units to stay on public streets, so you’ll need to find a lot that’s near your project instead.
The maintenance care for long-term portable restrooms looks different than their short-term counterparts. For starters, these restrooms require much more attention. The porta-potties will be in your possession for longer, and if you want them to work for the full period of the rental agreement, you need to clean and inspect the trailer daily.
Don’t let messes or issues with the rental fester, especially on construction sites. Long-term porta-potties come with toilet holding tanks that you need to inspect and clear out. At Floods Royal Flush, our largest tanks hold up to 300 gallons, but you can’t let them go long without unloading and inspecting the inside.
