Holding an event outdoors in the Summer time can be an exciting time, especially for the guests as it is a time to celebrate the lovely weather. For the organiser there are a lot of things to consider and plan before they can let their hair down and enjoy themselves. London has a reputation for holding many a good event so this can be an added pressure. Events can include occasions from weddings, festivals to garden shows.

One of the most important aspects to consider is the restroom situation. To ensure the guests are happy and catered for with their sanitation needs portable toilets are a fantastic option. No matter what the occasion it is essential that your guests have access to a toilet. If this element of the event is not taken into consideration there will be a lot of complaints. It will result in your guests leaving the event early due to the unhygienic situation.

Portable toilets are not always portrayed in the best of lights. In previous years they had developed a reputation of being mucky, smelly and overused. A lot of people have had bad experiences at an organised music festival or know of someone that has. However, portable toilets are no longer portrayed in this manner. There has been a massive change and   improvement in these facilities so now this is a thing of the past.

If you want to look for a company that offers the hiring of portable toilets you can do this in a couple of ways. By searching on the internet you can look type into a search engine ‘portable toilets’ which will bring you up a list of many portable toilet companies. If you would like to narrow your search, for example, a business located in your local area you can do so by typing specific keywords such as ‘portable toilet companies in London’. Alternatively you can speak to others that have organised outdoor parties and events who may be able to recommend a respectable company.

Many portable toilet companies will offer a variety of types for your outdoor event. The toilets available can vary from a standard toilet to a luxury trailer offering many facilities. When organising an event you will need to decide on your budget. It is essential that once this has been decided you stick to your financial plan. It is very easy to let things spiral out of control and get carried away with your spending. Whilst looking for a reputable company remember to discuss your available budget so that they can advise the best solutions and amenities for you and the event.

On average a basic calculation for the total amount of toilets required is 1 toilet to every 100 people. However, it may vary due to the amount of people attending the event and other factors such as if alcohol is involved. Again by talking to a dependable portable toilet company they can offer advice and discuss the available options to you.
