Estimating your portable restroom needs is a crucial step to take when ensuring your guest’s needs are met.
Enduring long bathroom lines at a wedding, concert or other special event is an experience you need to avoid at all costs. Not having enough portable toilets can result in long lines and unsanitary conditions, which can have a negative impact on your event.
Use these five tips when estimating your portable restroom needs, so that awkward potty problems don’t become an issue at your next event.
Several websites claim to offer comprehensive calculators to narrow down the number of portable restrooms needed; however, it’s not so wipe-and-dry.
Crowd size is an essential factor to consider, so keep that in mind. One toilet per 50 guests is a safe measurement – but again, this is dependent on other event factors.
Are your guests attending a 1-hour event? Perhaps you can be a little more lenient about your portable restroom requirements.
However, if your event exceeds the three-hour mark, it may be worth adding a few extra restrooms to your event.
Is it a catered event?
If your event provides any form of refreshment, then extra portable toilets are a must. A good rule of thumb is to add 15-20% more if food or alcohol is served. Having additional portable restrooms will allow your attendees to enjoy refreshments in comfort.
PRO TIP: A minimum of (1) handwash station should be added per (4) restrooms
Age of guests.
If your event is geared towards toddlers or young children, bathrooms will become more of a necessity. Keep this in mind for seniors as well.
If your special event is being hosted at a venue, consider the possibility of existing restrooms. This will help ease your portable restroom needs. However, be sure to ask the venue if restrooms are a part of the package. Also, be sure to keep the following in mind:
- Location of existing restrooms.
- Size of existing restrooms.
- How many existing restrooms will be available to your guests.
Providing your guests with bathrooms will ensure their safety and comfort throughout the event. You and your guests deserve to be lavished in only the best bathroom equipment. That’s why Rent-A-John is the number one choice for coastal Carolina residents.
