Looking for a little luxury at your fall outdoor wedding? Find out how to plan for when nature calls.

Fall is one of the most popular times to have an outdoor wedding because of the cooler weather and beautiful colors in nature. But planning an outdoor fall wedding can be tricky – between knowing the right number of restroom facilities needed to keeping your guests warm – things can get complicated. With 50+ years of experience in the industry, we have some insider tips to help ensure all your guests’ needs are met and your wedding day goes off without a hitch.

1. Proper Restroom Facilities

Many outdoor wedding venues don’t offer a sufficient amount of restroom facilities for your guests, which forces guests to wait in long lines or walk a long way to the bathrooms. When guests are provided with adequate restroom facilities, they stay longer and have a better time. If you are planning on serving alcohol at your reception, it’s important that you increase the number of restrooms by 20%. If you know there are going to be a higher percentage of women in attendance (beyond 50%), increase the number of units by 25-50%. Additionally, it’s important always include at least one wheelchair accessible unit! For more guidance on choosing the correct number of restroom facilities check out our Event Planning Guide.

2. Upgrading from Standard to Luxurious

Almost as important as providing an adequate number of restroom facilities, is providing your guests with luxurious restroom trailers instead of standard units. Weddings should feel anything but standard and this simple switch is an easy way to wow your guests. The Don’s Johns’ luxury trailers come with amenities such as granite countertops, marble walls, shelving and climate-controlled heat and air. The trailers include a dual audio system that not only plays soothing music for visiting guests, but also ensures those waiting to use the restroom don’t miss any moments from your big day with three flat screen televisions. These trailers always give guests something to talk about!

3. Bathroom Décor

If you really want to get your guests talking, we suggest including a few subtle extras in the trailers such as, a bathroom essentials basket, monogrammed towels, fresh flowers or luxe soaps. Remembering small details like these create the finishing touches on a luxurious fall wedding. Guests will think they have transported from an outdoor venue to a five-star hotel!

Now that you know the industry tips to creating a luxurious outdoor wedding this fall, contact a Don’s Johns representative today for a free luxury restroom trailer quote. Let us help you with your special day!

Porta John: Fun in the Fall and Winter Weather

porta-john

The Spring, Summer and Fall of 2014 have come to an end. We bid farewell to the fun in the sun and the warm weather and the snow abound is now on our minds.

Outdoor events such as state fairs, concerts and picnics have come  to an end.  Many people throughout the fall and winter seem to go into hibernation, but there are many reasons we are still outside and when outside, we still need access to a great porta john rentals!

Although the weather is cooling down, some of the best events aren’t heating up!  Some of the best Marathons are held during the Fall – such as the Marine Corps Marathon, Chicago Marathon and many more notable races that are always in need porta john rentals. Families love attending Pumpkin festivals, bringing camaraderie and cheer to everyone present as well as the need for a convenient portable restroom rental near the pumpkin patch.

Furthermore, it’s the winter months where the weather may sometimes be frightful, but the events are even more delightful. The winter brings snow tubing, winter sports and winter camping are enjoyed all season long. Portable restrooms provide convenient comfort as well as protection from the elements. You can even enjoy the warmth of a Don’s Johns restroom trailer complete with running hot water and climate control!

When thinking about colder weather and the needs of porta john rentals, we can’t forget to consider our friends in construction. Regardless of the weather, the construction industry continues to build, fix and maintain everything from roads and renovations to buildings and beyond. Winter construction continues. Development projects have needs for Porta Potties and Hook Construction Portable Toilets for multi-story projects, as well as interior restroom systems for the project manager.

A great tip to also remember is porta john placement during winter projects. It is important to remember to keep the portable restroom safely away from the route of an oncoming plow truck. Snow plows can quickly build up an embankment in front of your Porta John rental, making it difficult to enter or even come into contact with it, causing damage or knocking it over. Even for a simple bathroom remodel or addition onto an existing building, a porta john rental is a necessity that cannot be overlooked.

Whether the weather is hot, cold or in between, there is a need for Don’s Johns porta john and sanitation during the fall and winter months.

Give us a call at  888-331-6323 to speak with one of our friendly representatives.

6 Ways to Get in Favor with Your Customers This Holiday

During the months of October through January, businesses definitely see an increase in sales and revenue. Customers are sometimes torn on which stores to visit as sales are vast! How should they choose which store to spend their time and money with if the products and sales are quite competitive? Well, here we examine six ways that you can get in favor with your customers this holiday. These tips will surely get your customers out this Black Friday, Christmas Eve, or any other day of the year.

Give Them Swag

No one is going to turn down something free. And, with all the new and exciting products you can brand, why should they? Present custom logo t-shirts, coffee mugs, and pens as they check out this holiday.

Make Sure Your Staff is Up to Beat

During the holidays, many customers loathe heading out to the stores. The customer service may be so much of a drag; they don’t want to be bothered. That’s why many enjoy sitting at home and shopping online.

However, if you get your staff into the spirit of the season and up to beat, they’ll make your customers want to come into the store and engage again. It’s been proven that customers are even willing to pay more for their products if they enjoy the shopping experience and customer service.

Give Back to the Community

To show your commitment to the community, be sure to donate a percentage of each purchase to charity. Engage your customers even more by having them sign a card showing they’ve supported the charity.

Create a New Loyalty Program

Customers love the VIP treatment. They realize they have other vendors to shop for products, but they remain loyal to you. Show them you appreciate them by creating a loyalty or VIP program especially for them.

One idea is to host an exclusive invitation-only event at your store. They can shop in comfort as they indulge in a few appetizers and drinks you provide. You can also include local musical artists to showcase their talents and entertain your customers as they shop. This creates the ultimate exclusive event. If you’re not sure who to invite, simply invite those connected with you on your social media profiles.

Give Them a Sneak Peak of What’s in Store for Them

Entice your customers to want to come out this holiday and have a sneak peak of what’s in store for them. This can be a part of a customer loyalty program. This is also a great time to announce your new product line, just in time for the holidays.

Coffee shop owners can host free tastings. Home goods stores can host a seminar on decorating their table for the holidays. These free and educational events establish trust between you and your customers. This is a win-win for you both.

You can boost awareness and sales this holiday season by giving your most loyal customers early access to the new products or services that you plan on releasing to the rest of the general public after the New Year. When your customers feel special, they remain loyal.

Keep Enough Clean Bathrooms Readily Available

During all the celebration, you’ll want to ensure your customers can enjoy the party. Having plenty of clean restrooms available gives a lasting impression upon your store.

Don’s John’s offers custom restroom wraps, trailer wraps, and custom advertising so your customers know you are the ones providing them with a comfortable experience. Whether you set up one standard restroom for backup or have a luxury restroom trailer for your loyalty program event, this alone exemplifies service with a smile.

Contact Don’s Johns today and a helpful representative will be able to offer you more advice on the types of restrooms and sanitary options we have available and how many you’ll need for your loyalty event.

Portable Restroom for Outdoor Events in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC

portable-restroom

No outdoor event in DC, MD, or VA is complete without having a Don’s Johns portable restroom to be there for your guests’ restroom needs. You may think it’s an unfavorable idea, but your guests truly depend on a clean, sanitized area to have a comfortable experience.

It doesn’t matter the event, a charity event, art show, neighborhood block party, family reunion, BBQ cookout, graduation, or political celebration. All these events will have people there who want to drink, eat, and have fun. This freedom to do so is eliminated if they can’t find an appropriate place to relieve themselves.

Convenient for You and Your Guests

If you’re hosting your party in your backyard, you don’t want many people coming in and out of your home. You don’t want them trampling mud or dust through your clean house.

Hosting a party on the beach or at the park is a great way to keep your home clean. However, public beaches may not have the cleanest restroom facilities. The sinks could be dirty, stalls may be missing paper towels, and the floors are wet and unkempt. The restroom’s could have a long line at any time as well as be far from the event.

All the Comforts of Home Your Guest Will Love

The common idea of a portable restroom is the standard portable restroom you see along construction sites. However, Don’s Johns have a full selection of Premier Flushing Porcelain Restrooms, luxury port-a-potty, and luxury restroom trailers. Your guests will feel at ease going to into a fresh restroom, decorated with flowers and plenty of amenities. The granite countertops and black marbleized walls will certainly “wow” them.

If it’s a hot and muggy day, they can enjoy an air-conditioned restroom trailer, which is large enough to accommodate a few chairs to relax in. There is hot and cold running water so your guests can freshen up at any time. There are beautiful mirrors to use for women to retouch their makeup. And, the DJ5000LX Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer is equipped with three flat screen televisions and a dual audio system to continue to hear the festivities outdoors.

Once you start planning your outdoor event, don’t forget to budget in a few affordable portable restroom units. Dons Johns representatives are here to help you plan for your next outdoor event – 877 – 9 – TOILET or get free porta potty quote here.
