As an event host, it is your responsibility to provide for the various needs of your guests. For example, if you are planning an outdoor event in an area without running water or public restrooms, then you will need to rent some portable sanitation equipment for your guests to use.
Since your event's guests need to have a clean and sanitary place to use the restroom and wash their hands before eating, you should rent some portable toilets and water stations. If you have never rented portable equipment in the past, there are a few things you need to decide about, including:
The Number of Portable Restrooms Necessary for Your Event
The first consideration you have when renting portable toilets is the number of people who will be attending your event. For example, if you will only have 50 people, then you can get away with only renting one or two restrooms. However, if you are planning a large event with hundreds of people, then you will need to rent more toilets so your guests will not have a long wait if they need to go to the bathroom. This is especially important if there will be a lot of small children at your event because they cannot always wait in the same way adults can.
How Long Your Need to Ret the Portable Sanitation Equipment
Before you contact the rental company, first you need to decide how long you will need to rent the sanitation equipment. For example, if your event is a single day wedding, then you can easily have the restrooms delivered one day and picked up a day or two later. However, if you are hosting a multi-day event like a craft fair in a park, then you will need to rent them for a longer period of time.
What Type of Portable Sanitation Equipment is Necessary
Your last decision pertaining to renting restroom facilities is what type of rentals are necessary to accommodate your guests' unique needs and fit into the theme of your event. For example, if you are hosting an upscale wedding, then you may want to consider renting a VIP trailer or restrooms with interior lighting. In contrast, if you are hosting a children's party in a local park, then you can rent just a portable toilet and water station for handwashing. Finally, if you are hosting a public event or one where you will have disabled attendees, then you should rent a disabled toilet.
