Event planning is a fun and challenging industry. While getting to attend parties and weddings as a job sounds like a breeze, someone may easily forget how much work goes into planning an event.
When you’re dotting every “I” and crossing every “T” to make sure everything is on track, one of the most important parts of your job is also to be sure that the budget is followed. Part of following the budget, especially when it may be smaller, is to find out the benefits to each item so you can weigh the pros and cons in case something has to get cut out.
For that reason, we wrote about 5 benefits why renting porta potties for an outdoor party will be money well spent.
Porta potty rentals are cost effective necessities for a big event. When you have a large number of people gathered with available food and drink, as you do at an outdoor wedding, music festival, or marathon, having the right number of portable toilets will be worth a lot to you.
Imagine not having them. Everyone is gathered and having a good time. Vendors are selling drinks and food, but there’s nowhere to use the bathroom. Disastrous.
Not all of your options will have a more luxurious choice for you to choose from, but we do offer an upgraded version of your typical portable restroom.
Our luxury restroom trailers are larger units that include air conditioning, heating, running water, sinks, and toilets, perfect for that upcoming wedding in spring or summer.
In our weather, we know that the air conditioned bathroom alone is worth getting a quote from us and using a trailer restroom at your event.
Event planners have a lot going on during the event they are helping to host. There are a lot of moving parts, so it's nice when there’s one less thing to worry about.
At AYS, we coordinate with you to place our portable units, as well as when to schedule cleanings, but aside from that, you’ll mostly enjoy a very hands off experience, both literally and figuratively.
We take pride in making sure that our units are in good condition, so once they are delivered, you won’t need to do anything more unless they need service unexpectedly or until we come to pick them up at the end of your party.
When you live in the South like we do, droughts and saving water are topics that often come up in Summertime.
Another benefit to renting portable toilets for your outdoor party, corporate event, or sporting event is that they save water.
Did you know that the average typical indoor toilet uses anywhere from 1 ½ to 7 gallons of water per flush? Portable toilets are obviously flushless, using tanks to collect and hold waste. (Don’t worry, we also use chemicals to help break down that waste and keep things from smelling.)
If you’re concerned about our luxury portable toilets, you can rest easy knowing those units only use 0.8 of a gallon per flush, even when you hold the pedal for the recommended 10 seconds.
While some boy and girl scouts might remember digging latrines back in the day, we surely don’t recommend doing that and some public restrooms can be less than clean or a hassle to get to, which isn’t attractive to your guests.
Portable toilet rentals like ours are clean and sanitized before we deliver them. Our regular units have hand sanitizer as an available option, while our more “VIPee” options may offer running water and soap for hand washing.
This is a much better option than depending on what else may or may not be available for your patrons and guests to use.
These are just a few benefits of porta potties for outdoor parties and events and is certainly not an exhaustive list. However, these are some of the top reasons people decide to include them as a line item in their budgets.
Sometimes just having them as an option can take other problems off of your plate, which can be worth every penny when there are so many other problems that could arise.
So, how many porta potties should you have? More bathrooms is never a bad thing! However, if you don’t know how many you need, give us a call and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you.
Construction Units, High-Rise Units, Urinals, Special Event Units, VIP Trailers… We’ve got ‘em all! And that’s just restrooms - we also offer sinks, fencing, holding tanks, water tanks, office containers, and storage containers.
