Why it Pays to Get Protection for Portable Restroom Rentals

broken porta pottyRecently the Rochester, Minnesota fire department responded to a call reporting a fire in a local park. When emergency crews arrived, they found a portable bathroom engulfed in flames while a small child played nearby.

The restroom was a complete loss and the fire department suspect an arsonist started the fire. Three other recent portable restroom fires have the attention of Rochester fire investigators who suspect the same people, or person, set all the fires.

In Duluth, Minnesota, an arson-started blaze in a portable privy spread to a nearby public building causing more than $75,000 in damage. The problem doesn’t start or end in Minnesota; vandalizing portable restroom rentals happens across the nation. If this happens to you, will you be prepared?

Convenient for everyone

Temporary restrooms often fall prey to vandals who cover them with graffiti, cut holes through the walls, or tip the lightweight structures over. They make easy targets for vandals for the same reasons people choose to rent them.

5 Tips to Go the Extra Mile for Your Food Truck Customers

Food Truck GatheringIt’s estimated that up to 30 percent of all new restaurants fail within the first year of business. Furthermore, it’s estimated that of the restaurants that are still operating after the first year, about 30 percent will fail within the second year of business.

Knowing these alarming numbers, many would-be restaurateurs have opted to own a different type of service business — a food truck. Low overhead, comparably low up-front costs and the ability to pick up and literally drive your business to your potential customers are all big draws to owning a food truck. Yet food truck owners shouldn’t be fooled — operating a truck is hard work. There are the long hours, the paperwork and permits to legally operate your business and, most importantly, ensuring your product is quality.

House Fire? Weather Damage? Why Renting Portable Toilets in an Emergency is Important

porta potties for rent in Maryland, Virginia and DC
As a homeowner or business owner, you’re sure to purchase insurance covering a fire, flood or some other natural disaster that could damage your property. But while many people rest comfortably knowing that their home is covered in the event of an emergency, there is a bevy of other logistics that need to be considered if a catastrophe were to happen.

For instance, can you remain in the home or do you have to look for temporary lodging while restoration takes place? If you can remain in the home, which areas are accessible and which aren’t? Will you even have running water in the home?

The disaster restoration industry has advanced to a point where water extraction and drying from weather damage can be accomplished in a matter of days. And while house fire restoration can be a bit more extensive, in either scenario it will take time before a home and its occupants’ lifestyle is back to normal after an emergency.

What Will You Do?

When disaster strikes, it’s easy to take even the most seemingly simple things for granted. Things like bathrooms. In most homes, a bathroom isn’t just a place for people to do their business, but a place to get ready in the morning, shower, even relax in the bath after a long day. And in the event of a home disaster, these comfort zones can be temporarily taken away.

Luckily, there’s an easy solution to this dilemma: a portable restroom.
