All You Need to Know About Renting Porta Potties for Events and Festivals
Updated: Jun 26
If you're planning a large outdoor event or festival, it's important to ensure that your guests have access to clean, comfortable bathroom facilities. While permanent bathrooms may be available at some venues, they may not be sufficient for the number of guests you're expecting. That's where porta potties come in - they're a convenient and affordable option for temporary bathroom facilities. Stop And Go has serviced many outdoor events and festivals. From our experience, here's everything you need to know about renting porta potties for your next event or festival:
Determine the number of porta potties you need
The first step in renting porta potties is to determine how many you'll need. The number of porta potties required will depend on the size of your event, the duration, and the number of attendees. As a general rule, you should have one porta potty for every 50 people for an event that lasts up to six hours. For events that last longer than six hours, you should increase the number of porta potties.
Consider the type of porta potty
There are different types of porta potties available, so it's important to choose the right one for your event. Standard porta potties are the most common type, and they're suitable for most events. However, if you're hosting a more upscale event, you may want to consider renting luxury porta potties, which are larger and more comfortable. We have an entire blog post on our luxury bathroom trailers, HERE.
Plan for delivery and pickup
When renting porta potties, you'll need to plan for delivery and pickup. Make sure you have a clear idea of where you want the porta potties to be located, and ensure that there's enough space for the delivery truck. As the rental company, we need the event to ensure that we have access to the site, and that there are no obstacles or barriers that could prevent us from delivering or picking up the porta potties.
Keep the porta potties clean
Once the porta potties are delivered, it's important to keep them clean and well-maintained throughout the event. This means regularly emptying and cleaning the porta potties, restocking them with toilet paper and hand sanitizer, and ensuring that they're in good working condition. We’ll handle the cleaning before and after the event, but it’s important to remember the upkeep during the event as well. That’s what your guests will notice!
In conclusion, renting porta potties is a great idea for any event or festival. It's important to choose a reputable rental company. We’re proud of our good reputation and well-maintained porta potties, here at Stop And Go. By following these tips, you can ensure that your guests have access to clean and comfortable bathroom facilities, and that your event runs smoothly.
