5 Upscale Features to Consider the Next Time You Hire Portable Toilets

Construction & Contractors Blog

When it comes to portable toilets, there are a huge range of options on the marketplace. You can hire basic single-stall toilets, but if you are planning a special event, you may want to upgrade your selection. In particular, if you are planning a wedding, a corporate event, an upscale concert, or a similar type of event, you may want to look into corporate level portable toilets.

Here are just a few of the features to consider.

1. Modular Designs

The classic design for most portaloos is a plastic single stall toilet. The waste settles into a container below the seat and special chemicals help to keep the smell to a minimum. However, that isn't the only option.

You can actually get portable toilets that feature a modular design. This is basically a toilet in a portable building similar to the modular buildings used for housing on mining camps or oil fields. When your event attendees walk in, they feel just like they are in a regular toilet.

Best of all, these toilets can actually flush. In some cases, they may have vacuum flushing mechanisms. In other cases, they may have plumbing that leads to an external tank. In both cases, the odours leave the area. That makes the experience most pleasant for everyone.

2. Showers

If you are planning a multi-day event, you may want showers in addition to toilets. Depending on the nature of your event, you may want to choose a setup like a home bathroom where the toilet, sink and shower are in the same space. Alternatively, you may want to opt for one modular unit with toilets, and a separate unit with shower stalls.

3. Handwashing Stations

In some of the configurations mentioned above, you can have a handwashing station in the modular unit near the toilet stalls. However, that's not the only option. Whether you choose modular luxury toilets or basic single stall portallos, you may want to put in additional handwashing stations.

These stations can be located outdoors. They tend to consist of several sinks. They also come with soap dispensers, paper towels and waste bins. If applicable, you may want to put up a sign that tells attendees that the water is not potable.

4. Attendants

When you are working with a company that hires portable toilets, you may be able to hire more than just the portaloos and sinks. You may also be able to get a few attendants. These staff members are ideal for corporate events and formal parties in particular.

Basically, the attendant gets stationed near the toilets, and he or she can provide a wide range of services depending on your desires. They can provide cloth towels, colognes, and perfumes to your guests. They can alert the event organisers if the toilets need cleaning or attention for other reasons.

These professionals can also help at less formal events. In particular, if you need someone to monitor the area for crime or untoward behaviour, they may be able to provide those services. Talk with the hire company rep to see what works best in your situation.

5. Servicing

Whether you're hiring upscale luxury toilets or plain old boring ones, you may want to set up servicing. With servicing the hire company comes to the event to clean and empty the toilets as needed. This is generally a separate set of services compared to attendant services.

To learn more about the potential options and upgrades when you hire portable toilets, you should contact a hire company directly. Some companies also offer skips so you can tackle human waste and rubbish all with a single phone call. For more information, contact companies like Eagle Hire.
