Portable toilet rental solves problems for outdoor events, construction sites, disaster relief, and any other situation where access to plumbing is limited.

If you are considering renting portable restrooms, aka “porta potties,” you will want to understand the options, how the process works, how much they cost, and. This rental guide will answer all of your questions, so that you can make the right decision.

Portable Restrooms Work for All Types of Events 

Special Events: If people are spending time in an outdoor location for more than two hours, or if drinks are being served, and you don’t have a standard bathroom on-site large enough to accommodate the audience, you’ll definitely want to rent portable restrooms. The convenience of a restroom makes guests more comfortable and, combined with portable sinks or handwashing stations, makes the experience more hygienic.


Backyard Private events: If you are having 50-100 people at your home for a backyard party, know that a Portable Restroom may be just the answer.

Homeowners often forget or don’t understand that your home’s bathrooms (if on a septic tank) are only designed for 6-8 people living in the home. It can be a disaster if you try to have 50 people flushing your home’s toilet into your septic tank. They simply are not designed to cope with this kind of increase in single-day flushings.

Portable restrooms suit any outdoor event, including:

  • Airshows
  • Car Shows
  • Concerts
  • Construction Sites
  • Fairs
  • Farmer’s Markets
  • Movie Sets
  • Sporting Events
  • Trade Shows
  • Weddings

Remember to take into consideration how many guests you expect so that you can provide the right amount of restrooms.


The Benefits of Renting a Portable Toilet 

There are a lot of great reasons to rent a portable toilet for your event.

Comfort of Guests

Guests stay longer when they have somewhere to relieve themselves, so portable restrooms are great for business if your event features food, drinks, or shopping. They will have a better overall experience, as well.

Boosting Hygiene

For events with food, portable restrooms with sinks or standalone washing areas are important for hygiene. Guests feel safer and more comfortable when they know that you are considering their health and safety, especially in the era of COVID-19.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Portable restroom cleaning and maintenance is easy because your rental company will take care of this for you. For multi-day events, you’ll want to make sure you get them scheduled for cleaning, sanitizing, and restocking.

Cost Efficiency

Portable restroom rentals are highly cost-effective, reducing electricity and water bills. Anderson Rentals offers convenient online bill payment.

Portable toilets come in a variety of different models, each with unique features. There are standard single toilets that come with and without soap dispensers and luxury multi-restroom trailers.

Single portable restrooms work well for short-term needs since they aren’t flushable. However, with regular servicing, they can stay on-site longer, such as for construction projects or disaster relief. Luxury trailers are a great choice for longer events, or when you want to add a little bit of class to events like weddings or concerts. They feature flushable toilets, sinks, AC, and mirrors so that guests can freshen up and escape the heat or cold for a moment.

Consult with a portable restroom rental company to help determine the best size and style for your specific needs.

What You May Not Know About Portable Restrooms 

There are some important considerations to know about portable restrooms that are helpful to know before ordering:

Easy Placement

Portable restrooms can be placed almost anywhere. All you need is a solid, level piece of ground.

Odor Control

Standard portable restrooms come with built-in ventilation to keep odors at bay. Luxury restroom trailers feature great ventilation as well and AC to keep air flowing.


Event organizers will know that you generally do not need a permit for your portable toilet rental. Be sure to check your state and local regulations to make sure. Some Counties/Cities are more stringent than others.

Pricing for Portable Restrooms 

Pricing for rentals depends on size, features, and length of the rental. Standard model portable toilets tend to cost the least, however it’s important to consider how many you need. Luxury restroom trailers tend to cost a little more, but are a great way to keep lines moving at events and can take the place of three standard model portable toilets. Generally, for a one-two day (weekend day(s)), the portables are delivered on Friday and picked up on Monday. Weekend day deliveries or pick ups (if requested) involve overtime hours that are more costly. Contact us today for pricing and to discuss you options.
