With the needs of your guests, legal requirements, and wanting your event to run smoothly, it’s important to know what portable rentals you need for your event. Whether you’re looking for portable rentals for your wedding, festival, or another special event, every occasion requires specific rentals.

Read on to learn the types of portable rentals you need for your event.

The Types of Portable Rentals You May Need

Most events require standard portable restrooms, which can be found with different features such as hand sanitizer dispensers or flushing mechanisms. Along with standard portables, you may need additional or specialty rentals to properly accommodate your guests.


ADA Compliant Portable Restrooms

According to the Americans With Disabilities Act, at any public event, five percent of your portable restrooms, or one for every 20 standard rentals, must be handicap-accessible. ADA-compliant portable restrooms are designed similar to standard portable restrooms, however, they have an open interior, handrails, and a floor that’s level with the ground for easy entry. Handicap-accessible portable restrooms must be larger than standard portable restrooms. They are required to have 60 inches of unobstructed space to enable a wheelchair to make a 180-degree turn or a T-shaped space where a wheelchair can maneuver to make a 180-degree turn.


Handwashing Stations

Portable sinks are legally required to be at any events where food will be served to protect the health and safety of your vendors, employees, and guests. You should have at least one handwashing station for every 10 portable restrooms. They should be equipped with plenty of soap and paper towels, and come with a freshwater tank so that it doesn’t need to be connected to a water supply system.

In addition to your portable handwashing stations, increase sanitation with portable restrooms that have hand sanitizer dispensers.


Portable Restroom Trailers

If you’re hosting an outdoor wedding, festival, or another upscale event where you’re expecting many guests, you want to make sure your rentals provide comfortable amenities. Portable restroom trailers can be found with a variety of features, including:

  • Air conditioning and heat
  • Sinks with hot and cold water
  • Ventilation and exhaust to eliminate odor
  • Urinals and standard toilets that have a pedal flushing mechanism
  • Mirrors
  • Interior and exterior lights
  • Multiple stalls
  • Bluetooth stereo
  • Paper towel and soap dispensers

Restroom trailers typically have multiple stalls and can be found in a variety of layouts to accommodate your needs. Luxury restroom trailers offer high-end design features, making them a great option for large, upscale events.


Holding Tanks

While most restroom trailers come with built-in wastewater holding tanks, others need to be connected to a sewer or septic tank for waste disposal. If your location doesn’t have access to a sewer or septic tank, a holding tank is required. Holding tanks guarantee proper, sanitary waste management by flushing waste into a sealed compartment until a certified septage disposal company can dispose of it.


Portable Restroom Rental Costs

While costs vary according to each vendor, there are many factors that can influence your portable restroom rental costs. The main factor that impacts overall rental costs is the amount of portable restrooms you need, which varies according to the number of expected guests, the type of event, and if there are restrooms already on-site. For example, if alcohol is being served at your event, we recommend increasing the number of restrooms by 15-20% since it’s a diuretic.

How frequently your rentals are serviced can also impact your rental expenses. For events lasting two to seven days, we recommend having your rentals serviced daily. If the venue isn’t spacious, you may need to rent fewer restrooms and have them serviced more frequently to ensure proper sanitation.

Further, the types of additional rentals your event requires can increase your rental costs. For example, if you need handwashing stations or holding tanks in addition to your standard and ADA-compliant portable restroom rentals.
