If you have started planning out the details of an upcoming outdoor event, you may already be in the process of deciding on activities as well as the types of food and drinks you will serve. Especially if food will be served and/or the event will go on for several hours, you also need to think about how you will provide bathrooms for your guests if the event's location does not provide them.
Your most viable option is to rent portable restrooms for the event. However, you may not be completely sure how to proceed if this is your first time requesting this type of service. Below are a couple of questions you can ask yourself to get started.
1. How Many Guests Do You Plan on Having at the Event?
One question you should ask yourself before renting portable bathrooms for your event has to do with the number of guests who will be in attendance. Approximately how many people do you expect to show up?
Depending on their sizes, porta potties are designed to accommodate a set number of people before they need to be pumped and serviced. By giving this information to the rental company, they can determine how many units you will need based on the headcount that you provide.
2. Do Any of the Expected Guests Need Special Accommodations?
Another question you should ask yourself has to do with any special accommodations that may be needed for your guests. While reviewing your guest list, see if there is anyone who is disabled and needs mobility aids to get around, such as canes, walkers, or wheelchairs.
If you know that at least someone on your list has special needs, let the rental company know. They typically have handicap units that are larger than the standard restrooms. These units also have ramps as well as bars around the toilet to make using the facilities easier.
By asking yourself these questions beforehand, you can get an idea of not only how many people will attend the event but also whether anyone needs special accommodations. You can then give this information to the rental company so that they can help you plan out how many and what type of restrooms you should have on site. If you are ready to proceed with planning and setting up the service, contact a company that offers portable restroom rentals to speak with a representative.
