All PSAI Member PROs pride themselves on delivering excellent service to their customers. In order to make this possible, the PROs you consider will require some information about your needs. This will help them make good recommendations to you and, with your help, ensure the right number and type of restrooms are properly placed to provide a positive experience for everyone.
Be ready to talk about the:
Type of event and traffic flow. Different kinds of events require different services. For example, a relay will require more units than a come-and-go art fair. At a relay nearly everyone wants to use the restroom at the same time, and that is not always true of other events. You may want nicer options for your wedding than for your construction site.
· Number of attendees and duration of the event. Simply put, more people and longer events require more units. To see our special events chart click here.
· Outside temperature. On warmer days, users will take in more liquids and make more trips to the lavatories. You will want to keep this in mind as you consider the number of units and the cleaning schedule you will support.
· Food and beverage availability. Units that are placed on sites where users will be consuming a lot of food and beverages will typically be used more than average.
· Special needs. If your users will include families with small children be ready to consider units with diaper changing tables and child-sized toilet seats. If the event is likely to include a lot of seniors or people with physical challenges, accessibility and size of the units will be important considerations.
Terrain and curbing. Portable restrooms generally need to be placed on flat surfaces and to be serviced by relatively large trucks parked near the units. You will want to review the placement options and truck access routes with the PROs you are considering. If some of your units need to be handicap-accessible, curbing and ramps will also need to be a topic of conversation.
With all this information available, PROs will be able to offer you an informed bid for services – and you will be assured that the crucial elements for positive experiences with portable restrooms are being addressed.
