The Ultimate Guide to Event Toilet Hire

Need event toilet hire? Luckily for you, we have all the answers you could ever need.

Whenever you have many people gathered, it’s imperative that you provide them with facilities – and that includes toilets! Portable toilets are the perfect solution for all kinds of events. We have all the information you need to ensure you get the right toilet hire solution for you.

What Kind of Event Can I Use Portable Toilets For?

If you’re hosting an event that is outdoors or in a public place, that will be attended by many people, or in a remote location, you need portable toilet hire. Portable toilets are the perfect solution for events including:

  • Festivals
  • Concerts
  • Sporting events
  • Horse races
  • Parties
  • Weddings

It is especially important that adequate toilet facilities are provided at events where food and drink will be served, particularly alcoholic beverages. Alcohol can cause people to need to use bathrooms more often.

Why Should I Choose Portable Toilets for an Event?

Portable toilets offer many advantages that make them the perfect solution for any kind of event. Whether you’re organising a ticketed event such as a music festival, or you’re organising a big party for lots of friends, you need to provide clean, hygienic and comfortable toilets for your guests to use.

Often, the toilets that are permanently available at a particular location are not sufficient for a large scale event. Portable toilets require no plumbing or special infrastructure and can be placed anywhere where there is flat ground and adequate space.

Portable toilets can be installed quickly and easily, and they are just as fast to remove when the event is over. This means that if you have access to a site for a limited amount of time, your toilet hire will not affect your plans.

Finally, portable toilet upkeep is managed by us, your toilet hire experts. This means it is not your responsibility to clean and empty your portable toilets; instead, this will be handled for you. When you’re running an event, you don’t want to spend time cleaning up messy bathrooms. Portable toilets offer clean and hygienic toilets whenever you need them!

How Many Portable Toilets Will I Need?

There are many factors that will determine how many portable toilets you need for your event. As a general rule, we recommend one toilet for every 50 people at your event; however, this can change depending on other variables.

Statistically, female event attendees use toilets for longer than male attendees. This means that the queues for women’s toilets are often longer, and it can be advisable to provide extra toilets if you have a high ratio of women attending your event.

As previously discussed, events for food and alcohol will also require additional toilets. If you are serving alcohol, we recommend increasing the number of toilets by 30%. You can also discuss the details of this with your portaloo experts.

Finally, consider the length of your event when determining how many portable toilets you need. A shorter event that lasts only a few hours may require less toilets, as people may only use them once or even not at all during that time. A multi-day festival, by contrast, will require a high number of toilets as people will use them frequently over the course of a few days.

We are always available to discuss how many toilets you might need for your specific event requirements.

How Do Portable Toilets Get Cleaned and Emptied?

The last thing you want to worry about when running an event is unclean portable toilets. Fortunately, we ensure that your toilets are always kept clean and are regularly emptied so that they remain sanitary for users. We offer a portable toilet cleaning and emptying service whenever you need one, including pre-booked cleans on a planned schedule and emergency call outs when needed.

To empty a portable toilet, we pump all waste out of the holding tank and transport it off site. Ahoy Hire use environmentally responsible waste management practices, including directly taking all waste to a council approved, EPA licensed wastewater processing facility.

The frequency of emptying depends on the amount of people using the unit. We will work with you to decide when your toilets will need emptying, factoring in the number of people using the facilities and some of the other information above, such as if there is alcohol being served. Often, large scale events such as festivals, concerts and parties will need toilets to be emptied at the end of the day.

How Do Portable Toilets Cater for Accessibility?

It’s important to ensure you have provided toilets to all your event attendees, including people living with a disability. Disabled portable toilets ensure that no one gets stuck without access to a bathroom. These toilets are larger and have special features to make them easy for people to use.
