Portable toilets are an essential feature across several industries. From construction sites and festivals to temporary accommodations and hospitality venues, portable toilets are consistently needed to provide secure and hygienic sanitation. As things slowly start to open back up post-Covid, events are back, and that means there’s more demand for portable toilets.
Whether you’re planning an event or construction and/or renovation work, you’re going to need somewhere for people to use the toilet, and with that, you’re likely wondering, what is the standard portable toilet hire cost?
How Much Does it Cost to Hire Portable Toilets in the UK?
In short, there is no set portaloo hire cost. This is because several factors can influence the overall price, including the type of toilet you need. At Thistle Loos, we offer standard, disabled, and hot wash toilets for clients who need hot water access. The price varies between each type of toilet, and the type you need will depend on the event.
If there are no taps nearby, on a construction site, for example, a hot wash may be the best option. Alternatively, if there are taps available, you could get away with a standard toilet. This isn’t the only thing that will affect how much you pay, though.
How Much Will You Have to Pay?
The way we calculate how much it’s going to cost you to hire a portable toilet is as follows:
- Duration of the event
- The type of event
- How many toilets that you require
Portable toilets in the UK are typically priced on a weekly or monthly basis rather than daily, so the price you pay will depend on how long you need the toilets for. The longer your event or project, the higher the cost of the rental will be, similar to any other hire service.
Another aspect that will need to be considered is the type of event. There are several different types of portable toilets available, so those used for a wedding versus those used on a construction site will differ, and this can affect the price as mentioned previously.
Next, you need to calculate the number of toilets you need. Typically, one toilet per 50 people is acceptable, so if you have a wedding with 150 guests, three standard toilets should suffice. Accessibility is also important, so remember to factor in a disabled Portaloo with wheelchair access if needed.
What is Included in Portable Toilet Hire?
Portable toilet hire is more than just a toilet. We will transport the toilets to and from the location, and if the hot wash is selected, we will connect the toilet to an electricity source. We also offer all sanitary items such as toilet rolls and depending on the length of the event, we may provide a restocking service, too. On top of this, we provide a cleaning service. The longer your event and the higher the number of attendees, the more strenuous the cleaning routine will need to be, and this will be factored into the cost.
