All About Portable Restroom Trailers
Until a few years ago I never thought too much about restroom trailers, they’re expensive, they usually only rent out for the weekend and we never really got calls for them. In recent years that has started to change as more people’s expectations and standards increase these restrooms are in high demand. In this article I’ll discus tips on purchasing restroom trailers, why they’re getting more popular and the different versions from the basic level to the executive levels.
In the course of doing business I like to get chatty with my customers in an attempt to pick their brain. What I found is that there’s a stigma attached to renting a porta-potty. In most people’s minds a porta-potty is dirty, disgusting and embarrassing. When people enter a porta-potty and see the waste inside the holding tank it really freaks them out too. Of course most manufacturers of porta-potties also make flushing units, this is fine for some of our customers, however that embarrassment & stigma attached to any kind of plastic boxed bathroom at their wedding or event is too much for some. This ever growing perception on portable toilets is the reason that bathroom trailers are getting much more popular.
So you’ve decided on buying a restroom trailer and have many options, let’s talk about which options are must haves and why.
Options that are not worth the money.
Different levels of trailers.
Some rental agencies have different styles and trim levels for their restroom trailers. Generally a VIP restroom trailer is the most basic and cheap type of trailer. Most use NuConcepts for their VIP toilets in my area. They’ll generally have 2-4 mounted on a trailer and rent them out as a basic restroom trailer. Next you’ll have a mid-range trailer, this will be like the bathroom at your home, it’ll have climate control, be a bit larger inside, and may have a couple decorative features like pictures and flowers. The high end trailers often called executive restrooms are the most ornate and fancy of them all. They’ll have premium counters, faucets, some have TV’s, or music, they’ll have hot running water and just about every bell and whistle you can think of.

I had not heard someone say porcelain is better before. I guess I technically haven't heard the opposite, but all the rich people in movies usually have metal sinks. I guess I inferred they were better because of that.

Restroom Trailer Rentals have become quite common nationwide particularly in areas where electricity and running water are not available. If you're an owner/operator of a restroom/shower trailer rental company, it's always best to buy the high end mobile bathroom trailers as the investment will pay off much better as word of mouth business will bring in a lot of repeat business and/or referrals. It's always better to over-deliver than under-deliver.

I appreciate your tips on things to include when renting a portable restroom for an event, it makes sense to get one with a built-in water tank so that your guests can easily wash their hands as well.

It was really interesting to read that you can get porcelain sinks in a restroom trailer. You make a great point that metal sinks can be horrible to clean since they leave stains all over and require extra time to clean. I wonder if it's difficult to clean the rest of the bathroom in a restroom trailer.

I hadn't realized that you can purchase a portable toilet that flushes instead of the traditional one with the waste inside a holding tank. Maybe that option would be the best when looking for a restroom rental for my cousin's wedding this summer. We'll have to keep looking into our options before we decide between a portable toilet rental or a restroom trailer.

I couldn't agree more with what you said about how porcelain sinks look great and they don't leave soap residues all over. If I were to rent a portable restroom trailer for an outdoor corporate event, I would really consider renting a high-end mobile restroom solution that matches the prestige of the event. It looks like trailers with this type of sink will help me achieve the appeal that I'm going for.

Something I didn't know is that portable restroom trailers are becoming of high demand. It makes sense to me though for someone to rent portable toilets for an event that might not have a bathroom. If I were going to put on an event, I would want a portable toilet trailer for my guests to use instead of leaving to use the bathroom somewhere else.

You make a good point to have a waste tank that connects to the sewer since that means more people can use the portable toilet. This is good to know since my daughter will be getting married in the summer and we'll have to rent portable toilets for the reception.

My wife mentioned that she is looking to have portable restroom installed as she is planning to host an outdoor soiree. It makes sense to choose a rental service that is reliable. I will advise her to consider the testimonial and reviews.
Thanks for pointing out that the waste tank should be directly connected to the sewers. I hope that I can find portable toilet rentals like that so that we are sure that they will work well. We just need additional toilet for the wedding venue since they only have two restrooms there.
