Four Good Tips for Renting a Portable Restroom Trailer for your Wedding

With the growing popularity of outdoor weddings, couples now have many choices in planning their dream wedding. However, one thing that seems to get overlooked is where is everyone going to go to the bathroom? A wedding and reception usually takes 4-10 hours and typically involves food and drink, you definitely don’t want to be caught at the last minute without a restroom as renting one at the last minute may cost more and may not even be available! In this article we’ll give you 4 Good Tips on renting a bathroom trailer for your ranch style wedding.

1) Schedule your rental in advance. Restroom trailers are very expensive to buy so it’s quite rare for any portable restroom agency to have available facilities last minute. Companies with large inventories will have most all of their trailers rented well in advance. So, if your renting during the busy wedding season, April – September, you’re going to want to try and rent 3+ months in advance.

2) Make sure your location can accommodate a restroom trailer.  Restroom trailers are as big as an RV, they’re very tall and can easily be scratched by branches and may not have clearance under some tree limbs.  So, make sure the entire path from where you want the trailer to be placed is cleared enough and wide enough not only to get the trailer in and out, but to allow the delivery truck a way out after dropping the trailer off. Also keep in mind that most restroom trailers have doors on the passenger/right side, (some may have 1 door in the back), so if you’d like the doors a certain way it’s best to work it out before the driver gets there.
3) Have a good estimation of how many restroom users there will be and if they have special bathroom needs.  A restroom trailer is completely self-contained, most have their own water supply and waste storage; however, there’s a limit to how much water and how much waste capacity a trailer will have. Depending on the trailer, you may find that as little as 100 people can use a restroom or that the trailer your ordering doesn’t come with its own water supply requiring external hookups. It’s a good practice to let the restroom rental agency know how many guests you’re having so they can decide which restroom suites your needs. If your guests are elderly or disabled, you’ll find that it would be difficult or impossible for them to access a restroom trailer as they have stairs to access the bathrooms. Some companies, including Major Event Trailers, offer restroom trailers with handicapped access this is achieved through ramps or a section of the trailer which lowers to the ground. This option is typically very pricey; however, I propose that for most events having a handicapped portable toilet would suit the needs of your special needs guests especially if they’re few in number.

Make sure you have the proper hookups for the trailer. Some trailers may require no hookups at all and are completely independent, however the more lavish restroom trailers with AC/Heat/TV’s etc. all take lots of power to operate, much more than can be provided by solar or batteries. These types of trailers require a hookup to an external power source, this can range from a generator to an outlet nearby. We recommend using an outlet/generator with at least 15 Amp at 120v, some trailers require 2 15-amp outlets to operate. As mentioned earlier some restroom trailers don’t come with onboard storage for water, these types of restroom trailer will need an external water source ideally from a simple garden hose.

So, remember, before you rent ask your rental agency what you need to do to make sure your trailer is right for your location, this way your “trailer rental for your outdoor event, will go off without a hitch!”

It’s an Honor to Help

The ferocity of Hurricane Harvey was stunning. We will continue to see the aftereffects of Harvey and those of Hurricane Irma for months and perhaps years to come. “The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” - President Barack Obama

Major Event Trailers is deeply honored to have been stationed at ExxonMobil refinery in Beaumont, Texas, offering our services to those in need. The outpouring of support, love and goods from Americans all over our country has been heartwarming. We spent time and shared story with people who were suffering from the effects of the hurricane and those who had come to help with disaster relief. Many conversations were wrenching yet the spirit to survive and rebuild is beyond admirable.  The impact of this experience is something we will never forget.

Being in Beaumont changed us by no small measure due to the countless random acts of kindness and the enormous generosity of heart shown by so many.

We send our love, thoughts and prayers to the wonderful people of Texas and Florida who have been so severely afflicted by these natural disasters.

Our 25-foot long durable commercial grade portable restroom trailers are built to withstand high volume traffic and unpredictable weather conditions. The women’s bathroom interior features four private flushing toilet stalls, purse hooks and changing tables.

We also offer an ADA Accessible Trailer.  It is a 28-foot long, family-friendly portable luxury restroom equipped to serve individuals with disabilities and families with small children. The women’s restroom interior features three private flushing toilet stalls, purse hooks and changing tables. The men’s restroom interior is equipped with two water-less urinals and one private flushing toilet stall. The large separate, private ADA accessible/family-stall is equipped with wheelchair ramps, handrails, sinks, and a changing table.

Lake Isabella is a beautiful place to camp, kayak, fish... and have a company event!

Recently Major Event Trailers had the pleasure of getting out to the beautiful canyons in Central California. One of our awesome clients hosted their company event at Lake Isabella. This is a great place for fishing, camping, kayaking and all that outdoor stuff we love!

While enjoying the outdoors and roughing it a bit, it is so refreshing to have an on-demand hot water showers plus luxury VIP restroom trailers and an ADA accessible restroom trailer available. What a great perk to have our mobile trailers delivered for their employees.

We came and set up our equipment, and as we drove away we saw our clients enjoying the event equipped with our luxury mobile shower and deluxe bathroom trailers. It's wonderful to be one with nature but having the comforts of home available to you, makes the experience so much more.

We would love to be a part of your company or corporate event. Call us at (800) 946-9610 or contact us on our website.

Thank you guys so much. We really appreciated your services. -Client
