Questions to Ask Portable Restroom Companies
The first thing to do when ordering a portable restroom is to call different companies in your town and ask them questions about their services.
-Ask them if their restrooms are safe and sanitary.
-Ask about possibilities of getting a standard toilet versus a luxurious restroom.
-Do they offer handicap accessibility?
-What are the levels of luxurious restrooms?
-Do their restrooms follow regulatory specifications?
-If you need the restrooms for long periods of time, how often do they come and clean them?
-Are there any hidden charges that could show up later?
-How far in advance should you order your portable restroom?
A good company should be able to answer all your questions. If they do not, keep looking until you find the one that is reliable, sanitary and follows all the regulations.
