buy portable toilet



This is your basic portable toilet seen on most construction sites and other industrial settings. These units provide a static-type waste tank and a toilet paper dispenser. Some include features like a mirror, hand sanitizer and coat hook. These units are the core of your fleet and should be built to last and pleasing to the eye. These units need to be able to withstand the rigors of constant loading and unloading, as well as heavy use in rugged construction and industrial environments. Units need to be durable, provide adequate ventilation, and be constructed of materials that can withstand all types of weather and the harsh chemicals used for cleaning.


Federal law requires in many applications that units provided are wheelchair accessible. These units are somewhat larger than a standard portable restroom and are equipped with handrails as well as enough interior space to allow a wheelchair to easily get in the unit and maneuver. These units also sometimes include a baby-changing station, hand sanitizer and other amenities to enhance the user experience.


Prices of portable toilets can vary and some factors that go into it are the prices of plastic resin at the time, cost of fuel, or where you live for freight cost. Here are some rough numbers for reference:


Many portable bathrooms can withstand 20-30 years in the field. Portable toilets are generally made out of plastic resins that are engineered to withstand the harshest elements. In addition, many portable restroom manufacturers have integrated design features that help the longevity of the units they produce (i.e. stronger door jambs, springs, corner extrusions, etc.)


PolyJohn Enterprises Corp. warrants the major plastic parts of its portable restrooms (plastic front, wall panels, roof, and tank) against any breakage or other problems that prevent the PolyJohn portable toilet from functioning in accordance with usual practices used in the portable toilet industry and in their intended manner. This warranty covers any damages in material or workmanship for a total period of 3 years (36 months). This warranty extends only to the original purchaser of the PolyJohn portable restroom. Proof of purchase, serial numbers, and photos will be required.


Estimates for portable toilet rentals can vary greatly depending on location, the economy and your business goals. Here are some ballpark rental rates for a single day or weekend event, as well as a long-term rental:


A great way to increase revenue for your portable restroom rental business is to offer add-ons. They are a win-win for both you and the customer because you make a bigger sale while the customer is able to better serve their employees or guests. The following are some of the most popular add-ons:


Buying a portable toilet may seem like a strange purchase but it can also be a smart one. If you know you're going to need the toilet for longer than a year, or even on a permanent basis it would make more sense to buy one rather than rent.


If you are a small builder who regularly carries out home renovations or extensions buying may also make more sense. For example, you will have a way of transporting the toilet and will be using for many years to come. Again, you can just pay for weekly servicing.


Worldwide, an estimated 3 million portable restrooms are in use, serviced by a fleet of over 10,000 trucks. The chief benefit of portable restrooms is their portability. A single portable restroom can be hauled in the back of a pickup truck. They are inexpensive to rent from sanitation supply companies who offer services such as draining, cleaning, disinfecting and deodorizing. They also increase productivity and safety as personnel do not have to leave the work area to use public facilities.


Beyond occupational functionality, portable restrooms also accommodate recreational activities. They are frequently used at weddings, music festivals, campsites, outdoor sporting events, and parades. They are also used by the government during military training exercises and in conjunction with disaster relief efforts.


Purchasing considerationsThe location has an impact on the type of portable restroom you will choose. Beyond the common portable restroom that we are all familiar with, there are other options tailored to specific operating conditions, such as the high rise portable restroom.


Other concerns include the number of personnel at your jobsite, access to water or hand sanitizer, access for the drainage and cleaning crew and weather conditions. These factors will have an impact on the number of portable restrooms you need, what type makes the most sense for your situation, and possible cost implications due to distance and travel time for the service crew.


Buying processYou can rent portable restrooms by the day or month. Purchasing portable restrooms is also an option. In such instances, due to the regulations and possible specialized equipment necessary for emptying, draining, disinfecting and cleaning large units, such services are normally hired out to a sanitation company. For this reason, renting is the more popular choice, as renting includes those services as well as delivery and pickup.


You can rent a standard porta potty for $60 to $100 dollars a day or $150 to $300 a month. Deluxe models or specialized versions, such as the high rise restroom, are $100 to $150 a day and $300 to $500 a month. If you are looking to purchase a unit, a standard portable restroom starts at $700. Deluxe models, specialty units and handicapped/ADA compliant versions can cost up to $3,000, depending on the amenities.


This purchasing guide will discuss in more depth the trends, types, regulations, and maintenance requirements that will help you choose the best portable restroom option for your needs. It will also provide information about various add-ons available and suggest topics you should discuss when speaking with dealers.


As mentioned earlier, there are different types of portable restrooms, useful for a variety of needs. The portable sanitation industry has developed into a $4 billion dollar a year business. Depending on your needs, there are trends regarding the industry that will impact your decision. The first factor is the answer to the question: what are you going to use it for? And secondly: where? Industrial uses vary from event or recreational purposes as the latter has a presentation factor involved. Out on a jobsite, functionality is more critical than appearance.


ConstructionThere are a variety of construction portable restrooms to choose from. Rental prices typically include transporting, cleaning and disposal services. The purchase price is just to own the unit; arranging for cleaning and disposal services, if not self-performed, falls on you and the company.


AgricultureFor temporary agriculture jobs, such as an annual harvest, many companies use the same type of portable units as in the construction industry. However, for long-term jobs that require employees to work in remote areas, the preference is to use commercial-grade, large trailer portable restrooms with climate control, china toilets and hot water hand stations are preferred.


Luxury needsLuxury portable restroom models are not necessarily larger than the types previously discussed. Instead, the features that make them stand out are the amenities that increase their similarity to regular bathrooms; they are even constructed in fashionable colors with modern lines and shapes for the best presentation effect.


Luxury portable restroom models are available in single units and as large trailer units. They also have wheelchair accessible and ADA compliant units with all the same features and benefits. Single units can be purchased for $2000 and up with gently used at $1200 and up. Trailer models begin at $15,000 for new mid-range models with used ones available for as little as $8,000 in good condition. Rentals are $600-800 a day and $3000-$3500 a month, although such rentals are normally for short period events lasting a single day to less than a week.


Outdoor eventsThe type of portable restroom for outdoor events runs the full gambit of all the models previously discussed. The size and type for your event depends on your budget, number of people in attendance and duration. Single day family sport tournaments may not require luxury large trailers while a huge, fancy wedding might. A musical event over five days may require dozens, if not hundreds of units, to accommodate attendance numbers.


Given the sanitary and environmental implications, the use of portable restrooms is heavily regulated. OSHA has requirements based on industry and most municipalities want you to get permits before placing portable restrooms in public areas.


OSHAThe Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires portable restrooms at construction sites to avoid adverse health effects that occur when employees do not have access to facilities. Employers must also provide adequate hand washing facilities in close proximity. Such stations need to be equipped with whatever cleansing chemicals will wash away the materials with which they work; for instance, paint, glue and grease.


LocationsIf you are renting portable restrooms, the driver(s) from the rental company will inspect your site, and with your input on considerations and preference, determine the most reasonable and safe placement of the units. Regardless of jobsite or recreational event, these are the guidelines from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in their storm water prevention plan guidance for location determination: 041b061a72
