The harbor commissioners of Del Norte county in California are including ADA compliant portable restrooms from Royal Restrooms in plans for their new visitors and information center that would include 14 public agencies including California State Parks, the Department of Fish and Wildlife, Redwood National and local tribes.
“We were looking at getting a facility, Royal Restrooms, it’s an all-weather trailer that’s ADA accessible,” Helms said. “They’re gorgeous. We could set it up outside and tap right into the sewer and it would be less money.”
ADA Certified Portable Restrooms Are Perfect For Large Facilities
ADA certified portable restrooms are a perfect supplement to large facilities where an element of flexibility is desired, and quality is of the utmost importance. You can move the portable restroom trailers to any location where the activities are happening. If power and water are available then we can use them, and if not, then we can run the unit completely autonomously without the need for external facilities.
The fact that they are also so cost effective makes it a no-brainer to include ADA compliant portable restroom trailers in your next facilities planning effort.
Because every aspect of event planning influences the overall guest experience, special consideration should be given to your event restrooms. We’ve compiled a few tips to help you navigate the portable restroom industry and choose the best bathroom options to create a lasting positive experience for your guests.
Portable Restroom Trailer vs. Porta-Potty
Not All Portable Toilets Are Created Equal: Pictured are a fully operational portable restroom trailer and unplumbed porta-potties in Portsmouth, VA.
If comfort and convenience are important attributes in your event plans, a portable restroom trailer is the better option versus a traditional, unplumbed porta-potty. Look for minimum standard amenities in your portable restroom trailer search:
Sinks with running water
Interior and exterior lights
Air-conditioning and heat
Paper products and hand soap
Operating requirements vary by company. Details on portable restroom trailers by Royal Restrooms® are available here.
Portable Restroom Trailer: Size Matters
Plan for enough restrooms to accommodate your group size with minimal wait time. Some restroom rental websites have size charts or calculators to assist you. Keep in mind that food and beverage consumption affects the number of restrooms, or stalls, needed. When in doubt, ask a vendor for assistance.
Multiple-stall restroom trailers accommodate large crowds with minimal wait time.
Contact a Royal Restrooms event professional about available trailer sizes for your event restrooms.
Choosing the Right Model
Private stall bathroom trailers are ideal for weddings and private events. Pictured is a completely private women’s bathroom stall.
Match portable restroom styles to your event style. Festival planners tend to choose large, multiple-stall restroom trailers to serve large crowds; whereas, wedding and private event planners prefer smaller bathroom trailers and often upgraded, more luxurious models.
If entertaining guests with physical disabilities or parents with baby strollers, broaden your restroom trailer search to include models specifically designed for handicap accessibility:
Easy access ramps
Spacious and private interiors
Fully ADA compliant
A spacious and private, handicap-accessible stall is included in this ADA compliant restroom trailer.
Seek out more than just a functioning bathroom for your event restrooms. Look for evidence of excellent service among your vendor(s) of choice:
Read client reviews on portable restroom company websites and third party sites. Consider reviews about both restrooms and company representatives. Positive reviews about delivery drivers and setup crews are good signs that quality service stretches beyond a signed rental agreement.
Ask for referrals from satisfied friends/family and event planners who have rented restroom trailers in the past.
Inquire about services that add to guests’ experiences, like stereos and bathroom attendants.
Look for services that add to your own client experience, such as event planning assistance, willingness to work with other vendors and to satisfy unique restroom needs, etc.
Ask event planners and vendors for their preferred restroom trailer rental company.
