Monthly Round Up

A quick recap of some of our recent posts in case you missed them the first time round.

How Real Point have worked with Tardis

Tardis Website ScreenshotTardis have kindly asked us to write a guest post for their company blog.
From Ian O’Donnell, Director of Real Point Design

We were first approached by Tardis back in 2009, with the aim of redeveloping their website to provide a first port of call for potential customers looking to find out more about their portable toilet services and be able to contact them for more information.

Having provided a clean and fresh website and content management system, enabling Tardis to easily update their website content themselves, Real Point have since been working on search engine optimisation (SEO) with the aim to help Tardis’s website appear prominently in search results, as well as establishing this blog to enable Tardis to share useful tips and thoughts on the work they are involved in alongside their latest news.

We hope to continue our working relationship with Tardis as we build their online marketing strategy.

Shiny, happy tankers!

Tardis TankerRolling into the yard, sun glistening off their shiny yellow paint work, the new Tardis Tankers are an indication of our commitment to provide our clients with modern Tankers capable of meeting their ever changing needs.

These vehicles have been specifically designed by us to offer our customers tank emptys, water fills, pressure washer services, wash down, jetting services and bulk wet waste removal.

And though they might look bright yellow, they’re really green . . . they’re Euro 5 spec, meaning a massive reduction in CO2s keeping us environmentally friendly!

Caught short? Portable toilet hire quick . . . now!

Caught short? Sometimes, the unexpected can happen and when it does you need facilities . . . . fast! Tardis recently helped out a client with their urgent portable toilet hire requirements, and we had some great feedback, which we thought we’d share.

just wanted to say thank you for all your assistance in booking and delivery our emergency portable toilets. As your website said, I was able to contact you on Sunday and I got the booked sorted out very early Monday morning and had toilets that day. it was a real emergency for us as our building with 50 staff had no access to facilities after a Thames Water problem. You guys were an enormous help and everyone I dealt with really helpful, keep me informed on progress and appreciated the urgency!

Thanks again very much and hope you will pass on my thanks to your team.

What is Drain Mapping?

drain mappingMaybe not the most appealing of domains to plot but drain mapping can save you ££££’s  if drainage problems should arise. A clear knowledge of boundaries and pipework will help in the quick resolution of any drainage issue. Companies who invest in the mapping of their drainage systems can be sure that The Environment Agency will place a big tick against their name.

Drain mapping will show

  • What kind of pipework is under you land
  • Detail what size bore the pipework is
  • The length of the runs
  • The type of drain
  • Details of interceptors and catchment pits, treatment plants or septic tanks
  • Details of recommend maintenance schedules.

All this information will be presented with pictorial evidence in a clear, concise and comprehensive document.

Festival Faux Pas

Organizing events can be quite stressful as there are several factors to consider and get right for the event to run smoothly. The sanitation element, if judged incorrectly, can spoil a show and even force cancellation!

Things to think about to get your festival’s portable toilet requirements correct.

  • Ratio of toilets to people
  • location of toilets
  • number of service vehicles required to adequately maintain all toilets during the event
  • waste tank and water bowser hire for fresh and foul water provision.

Remember, skimping on toilets can really detract from festival goers enjoyment of the event. Well organised events continue to grow on an annual basis where as badly organised events can cost the organisers a lot of money!

Do not festival faux pas – call Tardis on Free Phone 0800 731 0589 for friendly advice and assistance!

Long Term Toilet Hire – In for the long haul !!!!

Tanker emptying Portable ToiletIf the you portable toilet isn’t going to be removed after a couple of days for a one off event, but is going to be a on hired for the longer term there’s a few things to think about on the location of the loo. In order to keep the toilet regularly cleaned we need to gain access with a service vehicle.

  • Service vehicles are either 3.5 or 7.5 ton vehicles
  • 15 meters of suction hose is available to reach portable toilets from vehicle
  • Service operatives need to be able to park these vehicles in a safe area from a distance where the toilet can be reached.

If regular servicing is not possible then the unit will be come an environmental health issue and unpleasant to all.

For site visits or advice regarding long term portable toilet hire please call our Free – Phone 0800 731 0589 number and a member of the Tardis team will be happy to help.

Fires, fireworks, hot dogs and water works!

Red, Green, Yellow . . . . no we’re not talking about the colours of the Tardis trucks but just a few of the colours you might see lighting up the sky later this week when we all have one the most macabre celebrations that could be!

But, of course, no big, bonfire night out would be complete without a few hot drinks and a nice hot dog, so organisers of the event ensure they get the catering vans in, so we can all get a nice hot mug of something to wrap our cold hands around.

But how well do event organises plan for inevitable that happens once you’ve had a couple of coffees (or maybe alternative refreshment!). Often the provision of adequate toilet facilities is a last minute after thought, not enough and difficult to find!

So why not make sure that your planning for next year’s bonfire night puts this as a priority, book your hire of portable toilets now, draw on Tardis Hire’s expertise to ensure you have the right number of portable toilets in the right place. Then next year’s event will have one damp squib less!
