Choosing the Right Portable Restroom

April 23, 2021

After months of planning and days decorating, your beautiful outdoor event or party can quickly take a dark turn without the right bathroom situation. While many people may not think about it, porta-potties are an essential component for every outdoor event.

What you may not know, however, is you don’t have to be stuck with an unsightly construction-site porta potty. There are a surprising amount of styles and setups that can accent any event.

Ranging from your standard single-toilet setup to a complete trailer equipped with sinks and mirrors, you can find the perfect portable toilet that accommodates your needs and ensures all your guests are happy and comfortable. Don’t know where to start? Read on to learn the essential tips for finding the best porta potty for your next event.

Finding The Best Event Porta Potty

The first step to finding the right porta potty is understanding your needs. Visualize your event as a whole – where will the toilets be located, how many people will be at the event, what is your budget.

This will allow you to find a portable toilet that works for your costs, and can also accommodate your guests.

A good rule of thumb is to at least have two toilets – one for men, one for women. In some instances, you can find larger units that accommodate multiple toilets in one.

The location of the toilet is also key. Not only will it affect the layout of tables and possible photo backdrops, but also it can impact your delivery costs and expenses. Be sure to ask your provider for help, in some instances they may have helpful tips for setup and toilet location.

Narrowing Down Your Portable Restroom Search

Once you know more or less the size and location or your porta potty, the next step is to determine your budget.

Your budget will obviously impact the size and quantity of portable restrooms you can have at your event.

If your porta potty needs are outside of your budget, a good tip is to possibly downgrade the style of the unit and decorations.

Some people may decorate the inside of their portable toilets with assorted toiletries, mirrors, and even picture frames to give it a more personable feel. Additionally, you can decorate the outside area and create a simple sitting area while people wait.

This not only cuts down on an unsightly and unwelcoming long line, and allows your guests to relax and possibly bond as they wait. While portable toilets may not have a stellar connotation, with some care and attention, you can easily elevate it into a high point for your event.

Reliable Porta Potty Delivery

Now that you have the general information you need to make a decision, your next step will be to find your local porta potty provider. Be sure to explain the details of your event so they can help you choose the right bathroom for your event. Also, be sure to ask about:

  • Delivery costs and timeframes.
  • Maintenance and upkeep (pumping).
  • Service and emergency support.
  • Pickup procedures.

As long as your prepared for the delivery, upkeep, and procedures after your event, you’ll make the entire seamless – while finding the perfect portable toilet for your needs.
