So, you’ve decided how many restrooms you’ll need for your event, but where will you put them? When placing your portable restrooms, it’s essential to keep functionality and guest comfort in mind. Use these tips to help you determine the best placement for your portable restroom. The last thing anyone wants is for a guest to trip or twist an ankle on a rock, stick or depression when exiting the portable.
Stay Grounded for Safety
This one is crucial. Placing your portable restroom on level ground is essential to the safety and comfort of your guests. Placing the rental on irregular ground can cause tipping and wobbling for guests – making for an unpleasant experience.
It is usually best to have the portables in plane site. Placing your portable restrooms near concessions is a concern unless there is some distance between them. Your porta-potties don’t need to be right by where food and drinks are being served but should be located within a short walking distance to avoid discomfort for guests.
Check the Weather
Is there a possibility for high wind during your event? If so, we suggest placing the portables in groups, back-to-back, for added stability in high winds. Otherwise, we recommend securing your rentals by placing them along a wall or other structure. This will prevent it from catching wind and shaking, or even worse becoming airborne! It’s also important to check for rain and ensure that the ground you place your portable restroom on won’t become a large puddle or surrounded by standing water if a downpour occurs.
Choose a Central Location
Who likes walking around frantically looking for a restroom? Likely, not your guests. That’s why you should look to place portable restrooms somewhere that can be easily seen and found. At the same time, you don’t want your portable restroom to be the focal point of your event. That’s why we suggest central placement in the middle and scattered along the edges of your venue.
Keep It Accessible
Accessibility is key to a good portable restroom placement. Not only do you want to make sure guests can easily get to the location, but it’s also important to make sure our drivers can deliver and pickup safely (without getting stuck, falling into an unmarked septic tank, etc).
