Sky’s the limit for portable toilet delivery

Tardis Environmental are proud as Punch to announce they are the first environmental company to begin deliveries of portable toilets to site by drone.

Portable toilet delivery by drone

Five years in the development to get the mechanics right. Squadron leader Ade Boydon said today, “We’ve finally cracked the weight issue by removing the liquid element in the portable toilet unit prior to delivery. Further weight reductions have been achieved by employing a carbon fibre toilet seat and thinner toilet paper”.

Ade Boydon - Squadron Leader

“A revolutionary new powdered bio-chemical compound is part of the delivery, the client simply adds plain tap water and BOOM, you’ve a fully operational portable toilet”.

At the moment, due to the CAA ruling on drone activity near airports, we are unable to operate a delivery by drone service inside the M25 circle or within 5 miles of any major airport.

Drone deliveries are set to commence on Saturday April 1st launching from our Cannock Road depot in Wolverhampton.

The maiden flight will be marked with a ceremony where a bottle of Prosecco will be broken against the hull of the flying Tardis toilet prior to take off.

Route and destination details will be programmed from Tardis mission control in Brownhills where state of the art fly by wire navigation equipment has completed testing.

If you need a portable toilet or shower for your New Year’s party, book it now

If you’re planning a bash to see in 2017, depending on the location you may want to think about the facilities, especially when your guests are knocking back the Tizer like it’s going out of fashion.

When we’re quoting our events clients who are expecting hundreds or even thousands of visitors to their event, we always ask if there will be alcohol served as this increases demand on toilet facilities.

Tardis portable toilet hireSo, even if your New year party is just twenty or thirty people, imagine the number of people all wanting to use the loo after a few sherbets.

There’s still time to arrange a portable toilet for an event at home or on a larger scale.

We’ll discuss you needs, make our recommendations and then you can relax in the knowledge that you’ve catered the perfect party. One where there’s no loo queue.

If you’re organising say a rugger event where the lads outnumber the lasses, we’ve urinal units. Our 6 bay even comes in its own little tent.

The Tardis crew will be operating nationwide at normal capacity until 5 o’clock on Friday 23rd of December, when it’ll be time to put on the glad rags and party with the rest of you.

Of course, we still have the emergency cover, but for things like toilet hire, we do suggest you arrange your delivery well in advance so everything is in place and all you have to do is PARTY HARD.

One of our hire desk girls was curious when talking to a Scots client.

“Is anything worn under the kilt” she enquired.

“Nay, it’s all in working order” came the reply.

In any event or festival, it’s nice to be noticed

Your event or festival well covered by Tardis

It’s been a busy summer with an event or festival occuring almost weekly and plenty yet to come. We’re covering a large carnival in Leicestershire weekend of the 5th and a week or so ago, we were up north at an 80s festival which suited our tanker captain down to the ground because that’s his favourite music.

Servicing the facilities at the 80s fest

For us this was a toilet and service event which went smoothly.

If we’re lucky (and we Brits are eternal optimists), we’ve another couple of months of summer weather left to make the festival season really special.

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.

6 bay urinal thumb4 bay urinal thumb

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.
