What to do when you need a portable toilet immediately

Life is unpredictable, and there are moments when we find ourselves facing unexpected situations where access to a clean and convenient restroom becomes an urgent necessity. Whether you’re hosting an event, facing plumbing issues at home, or working on a construction site, the need for a portable toilet can arise suddenly. In such cases, ASAP Marketplace comes to the rescue, reliably and efficiently connecting you with a wide range of vendors offering portable toilet rentals. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the steps to take when you need a portable toilet immediately and how ASAP Marketplace can help you find the perfect solution for your urgent restroom needs.

  1. Assess Your Immediate Requirements

The first step when you find yourself in need of a portable toilet immediately is to assess your specific requirements. Consider the following questions:

  • Where do you need the portable toilet? Is it for a backyard event, a construction site, or a temporary worksite?
    • This will affect whether you choose “Construction Toilet” or “Event Toilet”. Please keep in mind that event toilets have never been out at a jobsite and thus are in better condition than construction toilets, but can only be rented up to 5-7 days, depending on the vendor. 
  • How many people will be using the portable toilet? 
    • This will help determine the number of units you require, which varies depending on if its for an event or a worksite. Click here for a more details.
      • Worksite: We recommend one toilet per 7 persons per 40 hour working week
      • Event: We recommend one toilet per 50 persons per 4-hour event.
  • What amenities do you need? 
    • Some portable toilets come with additional features like hand sanitizers or sinks, or you might prefer to rent a hand-washing station separately.
  • Do you need any special accommodations, such as ADA-compliant units for individuals with disabilities?

Understanding your immediate needs will help you choose the right product for yourself, or communicate effectively with your ASAP Marketplace vendors through ASAP Marketplace advisor to ensure you get the right portable toilet that meets your requirements.

     2. Utilize the ASAP Marketplace Platform

    3. Check Availability and Delivery Times

Once you’ve narrowed down your options through ASAP Marketplace, it’s essential to check the availability of the portable toilets and their delivery times. For urgent situations, you’ll want to ensure that the portable toilet you choose can be delivered promptly to your location. Most vendors in the ASAP Marketplace network understand the urgency of immediate requests and strive to offer quick delivery services to accommodate your needs. If you need your toilet for a specific start time on a day, please choose delivery the day before to ensure you have it in time for your event or jobsite opening. Vendors are unable to provide a delivery window outside of their normal operating hours, and cannot schedule a delivery for a specific time. 

   4. Communicate Your Urgency

When ordering your unit either online or over the phone with an ASAP Marketplace advisor, be sure to communicate your urgency. Same-day orders are possible for a rush fee that varies from vendor-to-vendor, and many vendors in our network are well-equipped to handle urgent requests. You can ask your ASAP Marketplace advisor to include the urgency in the notes of your order, or you can do it online in one of the text boxes yourself when placing the order. While availability and stock, along with the time constraints of your order, may impact the ability of a vendor to complete your order, by letting us know we can work with you to find options that best suit your needs and time limitations.
