Your checklist to ensure a perfect hire – Tardis helps you plan

rainbow

Whether you are putting a portable toilet in your garden or several into a field for a festival, sports meeting whatever, you’ll need to plan beyond just placing your order.

Tardis Environmental take good service very seriously, but there are factors known only to you, which can detrimentally affect what should be the smooth hiring of a portable toilet or shower.

Delivery vehicles.

Tardis Toilet Carrier Van Graphics 005-smaller July 2012

We deliver using the most appropriate vehicle for the run that day, this can be a 3.5 tonne 7 tonne or 7 tonne with trailer which is also commensurate with the number of units ordered.

Siting the unit(s).

Units need to be sited where we can conveniently drop off, collect and where required, service them too. If the delivery site is a domestic property, we need access for the vehicle to drop the unit close to where you intend it to be used.

For servicing, our smaller vehicles carry approximately 5 metres of hose. Vacuum tankers approximately 30 metres. Again, for further details on the weights and dimensions of our vehicles, peruse the specification sheets below.

If there is a wall or similar instruction it may require a crane mounted vehicle to effect delivery (which can be arranged at extra cost).

If the vehicle has to travel down a driveway, take time to measure the width and either talk to our hire desk team or look over the dimensions of our service vehicles so you’re clear the vehicle will fit.

Once the unit is on terra firma, whilst our drivers are strapping fellows, there is a limit to how far a toilet or shower unit can be jostled before even the most herculean staff member expires. As one was heard to say recently, “me name’s Simpson not Samson” !

The British weather has a habit of turning inclement at a moment’s notice. This can render some sites inaccessible posing inadequate ground conditions for vehicles. This is especially relevant where we are delivering out in the countryside.

Safety and security

Although we appreciate this can be difficult, we do ask our clients to consider the location where the units are going to be sited especially when left overnight or unattended. Consider the likelihood of them being damaged or stolen whilst in your care. Units are the responsibility of the client and good measures should be employed to prevent damage or theft.

Tardis cages

Added security for units when not in use

Tardis have security cages (lockable) to help protect the units (available at extra cost) an ounce of prevention being better than a pound of cure.

For larger events

Have you considered the number of toilets required in ratio to the number of people attending ?

We’ve many years of experience in providing adequate facilities for events and festivals. We can advise on the number of units you may need, even taking into consideration that people may be partying hard (drinking alcohol).

Tardis 6 bay urinal

Tardis 6 bay portable urinal

Take into consideration the male / female split of visitors and you can cut down loo queues, by hiring a combination of urinals for the lads and cubicle toilets for the ladies.

Connecting the units.

Tardis self-contained portable toilets do not need connection to any facilities but may require servicing if the hire period is more than a few days.

Tardis hot wash portable toilets require a 240 volt 16 amp connection to an electricity source. Showers require a water and electricity supply (rated at 240 volt 32 amp) and a run off for the waste water.

We have qualified fitters who can provide a connection service if required. Book this when you book your units.

What comes with the toilets ?

Toilets will be delivered with loo rolls and paper towels (where the unit features a sink) Alternatively there will be hand sanitiser gel.

If they should run out, then it is the hirer’s responsibility to replenish, unless this service has been pre booked, where we will take care of the resupply.

Collection after the event

We will endeavour to collect your units as soon as possible after your period of hire is over. In some cases however, it can be up to five working days, depending on your location with the good condition of the units being the client’s responsibility during this time.

Never wishing to scare our customers, 99 percent of unit hires go smoothly and without incident. A little forethought and good communication allows us to plan for just about any eventuality.

The Tardis hire desk team will help you set up your hire and our specification sheets help you take the worry out of those worrisome what -ifs.

The Right Portable Toilet for You

What Portable Toilet do you need?

With so many different portable toilets to choice from, it can be difficult hiring out the right portable toilet you will need.

So here are some short explanations of the different types of toilets.

If your work on a construction site an event toilet would not suit your needs. You will need a cold wash or hot wash portable toilet. These toilets have sinks that are able to wash face and forearms which is perfect for construction sites.

Portable Toilet Hire

You have an event or festival and you want some portable toilet that will be able to handle the constant use from hundreds of festival goers. You will need an event portable toilet as these have 2 ply ultra-strong walls; vandal proof door springs and has a double walled roof which is able to withstand heavy weight.

Event Toilet

When hosting an event or festival it is a good idea to hire out some portable urinals as these would help cut waiting time. This will allow your customers to have more time enjoying the festival or event.

Portable Urinal

If you’re lucky enough and have access to a mains sewage line you will be able to use a mains portable toilet. These toilets can be connected to the main sewage line and with toilet inside that resembles the one you would find in your own home.

Portable Toilet given to church

Tardis Helps with Portable Toilet

Tardis Environmental helps local church with whacky idea. We were asked by St Philip’s Church for a Portable toilet shell to help them with their building site feature.  So we gave them one of our orange portable toilet shells which was to be used as the main feature. Community Transformation Manager at St Philip’s Church said “it was really amusing to some of the faces of people on Sunday wondering what the Orange Portable Toilet shell was doing in the hall”

St Philips Church is now thinking of other ways in which they can use the portable toilet shell. I think one idea is that they are going to use it as a gunge tank with some alterations.

Did you know that not only do we help here in the UK but we also help in getting drinkable water to those less fortunate then us? We are now proud sponsors of water aid giving them a donation every month to help children and family’s get clean and drinkable water.

Call Tardis today for all your portable toilet needs. Our staff are highly trained and have all the knowledge to get you the best service.

Portable Toilet Hire

Don’t Just Hire Portable Toilets for an Event!

When you have a large event you will need Portable Event Toilets. How many you need is depending on many factors like will there be alcohol served and how long is the festival or event. The Longer the festival is, the more Portable toilets you will need. Normally you will need to add around 15% of the amount of Toilets you will need if alcohol is being served.

What other options are there?

The last thing you want is your customers to do is queue and wait to use the Portable toilets
you have provided them. The maximum acceptable waiting line is around 10 people. To help minimise this and keep your event flowing. I would recommend hiring out some portable urinals.

Single 4 bay white

This will help cut queues down. You can have portable Urinals come in either 4 bay or 6 bay portable urinal. They have a large waste tank and can also come with a Tardis screen.

Portable Urinal

If you need more advice on our portable toilets and how we can help you organise how many toilets you will need then please give Tardis a Call on 0800 731 0589.
