In Brazoria County, there are a lot of outdoor events throughout the year. However, the spring through the fall is certainly the prime time for outdoor events, so it is also the peak demand time for portable toilet rentals.
For short or long term requirements of porta-potties, there are a few common mistakes to avoid. Knowing how to avoid these issues can make the process much less stressful and also ensure the units are delivered clean, well-maintained and set up to your specifications.
Waiting Until the Last Minute to Book
For any type of outdoor event or community type event where portable toilet rentals are required, contact the company you are renting from at least a month to six weeks in advance.
Any events that fall on important holidays like Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day, as well as any dates that are on the weekend, need additional time to ensure units are available. To be safe, consider reserving the units you require at least two months in advance.
Not Checking the Reputation of the Rental Company
Not all portable toilets are maintained and cleaned the same way. Choosing a rental company off of an internet listing or through an advertisement is never advisable. Instead, take the time to find out about the company and make sure they have a solid reputation for customer service and support with all of their portable toilet rentals.
These companies deliver the portable toilet units and pick them up at the end of the event. They can even arrange for additional storage for waste material on-site for longer term rental needs.
Underestimating the Number of Units Required
If you are new to hosting these types of events, talk to the rental company. The professionals can assist you in choosing the correct number of units, providing handicap accessible porta-potties as well as providing hand washing stations as needed.
