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!

Complement This Year’s Summer Events with Portable Restroom Rentals

Portable Restrooms for Summer Events

The warm weather is coming shortly, and now is the perfect time to start planning those summer events. Many events such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and other family events are held outdoors. To keep your celebrations going all night, you’ll need plenty of portable restrooms.

Don’s Johns is the premier provider of porta potties and portable restroom trailers in VA, MD, and DC. There are many uniquely designed portable restrooms available for your use. With the help of our associates, you’ll have the best portable restrooms and amenities delivered to your event.

Mother’s Day Events

Throw a party in honor of your mom or your wife in a lovely outdoor setting. Picture a feminine setting in a park with luscious flowers. You can’t expect mom and her guests to use just any standard porta potty at the park. No, she must use an elegant portable restroom that blends in well with the parks décor.

Don’s Johns has trailer wraps such as this elegant rose restroom wrap. Inside, of our Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer, she’ll step into a hardwood floor covered restroom and gaze upon the marbled walls. As summers can get hot, this is the perfect getaway spot with its climate controlled air conditioned unit, large enough to have a small bench to sit back and rest. There is a time released air freshener inside. She’ll have plenty of hot and cold running water over the beautiful vanity area. Don’s Johns was honored with the 4th Place Award for Cintas America’s Best Restroom 2011, so your guests can feel special at your Mother’s Day event.

Father’s Day Events

Father’s Day is a bit different when it comes to park celebrations. Everyone can partake in this special day with plenty of beer, cocktails, and, of course, BBQ. Dad may take the stage and cook up dinner himself, using the new grill you’ve purchased as his gift. You may schedule a few baseball games and other family friendly events. Of course, the children will all run around playing and need an area to clean themselves up at after playing. And, Dad, of course, needs to clean up after BBQ’n.

With everyone drinking and eating, you want enough restroom trailers, so everyone can use the facilities when necessary. You should even rent an additional portable sink so everyone can keep clean hands before handling the food.

Fourth of July Festivities

The Fourth of July brings about many festivities. And, best of all, everyone loves to sit around and watch the fireworks come nightfall. To get the best seat in the house, you must come to the park early and dare not move or else risk losing your spot. Families all around use the park to come together and enjoy the festivities with food, drink, and play. You can set the stage with Don’s Johns portable potties and have decorative restroom wraps to show off this patriotic day.

Family Picnic and Affairs

There are many family affairs you want to celebrate in style this summer. Everything from weddings, baby showers, and engagement parties requires the VIP setup. Your guests should be in a restroom that many five-star hotels could only wish for. The Luxury Restroom Trailer w/Family Room has a gorgeous interior with Corian counters, white wainscoting and trim, wood panel doors, and hardwood designed floor. It has a family suite perfect for relaxing or changing children’s clothes.

Contact Don’s Johns today to beat the rush of restroom reservations. You want to have not only the right restroom, but enough of them for your event. 877-9-TOILET

Everything You Need To Know About Residential Restroom Trailer Rentals

residential-restroom-trailer

If you’re considering residential restroom trailer rentals for your next gathering or project at home, let us clear the air. Here is practically everything you need to know about residential restroom trailer rentals. How long does it take to set up a residential restroom trailer at my home?We know it seems daunting, but getting a residential restroom trailer rental up and ready for your event is as simple as one phone call (877-9-TOILET). We have plenty on hand, even in the event of a disaster in your area, such as a power outage or plumbing emergency. You can depend on us to deliver a clean and fully stocked restroom trailer in a short notice.

What are the rental period requirements for a residential restroom trailer and additional accessories?

Unlike those standalone porta potties you may seek at the park, our residential restroom trailer rentals are available for renting for a few hours, a day, or even a week. We have construction crews that use our trailers and accessories for a few months at a time. If you find yourself needing the unit longer, simply call your account manager and we’ll extend the agreement.

Is each restroom trailer rental clean upon arrival?

You never have to worry about receiving an unsanitary unit. Each of our units is steam cleaned thoroughly before they are put back into the rotation. Each unit is flushed completely of any fluids, wiped down, and restored with new toiletries. It’ll be as though it’s a new unit on our lot.

What is the required setup for a residential restroom trailer?

If you have just a one or two-day rental, your restroom trailer rental can be set up anywhere on a flat surface, such as your driveway. However, if you need your rental for a longer period, it should be within 25 feet of street access. Our crew comes out to perform necessary cleaning and emptying of the tanks. So it’s important they can do it without disturbing you or your neighbors with any mess.

Who is responsible for cleaning the trailer and how often should it be cleaned?

We do not expect you to perform a thorough cleaning of your restroom trailer. So, for extended rentals, we include a weekly service call in your rental price. Our technician will come out to service your unit by cleaning it and restocking it with paper towels, toilet tissue, and any other necessities. Should you find you’re using it more than you planned, we can come out for an additional service call at a small fee.

How many residential restroom trailers do I need?

There are many factors that contribute to how many restroom trailer rentals you’ll need. Check out our handy planning guide to help you estimate. There are guest count, food and beverage servings, and the length of the gathering to consider. However, our representatives can help you figure that out.

Are there unpleasant odors in the residential restroom trailer?

You never have to worry about any odors with our restroom trailers. We use a detergent water to sanitize and deodorize each unit. And, each time we sanitize it, it’s fresh and new again.

To answer any other questions about our residential restroom trailers that are not addressed, contact our representatives at 877-9-TOILET. We are glad to service you.

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.

Make It an Unforgettable Event with Luxury Restroom Trailers

luxury-restroom-trailers

The warm summer nights, the cool winter days, it really doesn’t matter when you host an event, it can be the most memorable of all. It requires careful preparation and thoughtful planning. An unforgettable event can’t be planned overnight. You should have delectable foods, fine wine, servers, and luxury restroom trailers.

Opt for Style and Comfort

If you’re looking to have an opulent event, you want it to be stylish and comfortable. Contrary to popular belief, those attending galas and such want to be more than just a pretty face in the crowd. Women wear their high heels and men look amazing in their tuxedos; however, they are surely uncomfortable.

Your event can be stylish and allow them to be comfortable in a Presidential Luxury Restroom Trailer complete with air-conditioned units. Have you thought about how people frequent the restroom when they are at hotel or banquet halls? It’s the same concept, just brought to your guests at an outdoor event.

Keep Everyone Clean and Fresh

Depending upon the event, you can also keep everyone clean and happy with portable sinks scattered about. As your guests eat finger foods or sip on wine, they may need to clean their hands. It’s also a great sanitary practice to keep sinks or hand wipes available as people meet and greet new acquaintances.

Enhance the Décor with Restroom Wraps

Restroom trailers can be extraordinaire. You usually see portable restrooms as the standard blue. However, Don’s Johns offer full trailers and you can enhance the décor with restroom wraps.

These wraps come in a solid color, or you can have a custom wrap matching your events color palate. In addition, you can decorate the inside of a restroom with chic paper hand towels. Place a few baskets on the granite counters and fill with rose petals.

As you can see, Don’s Johns have many products to help enhance the mood of your event. Contact our planners today to see what options we have to make your guests comfortable and experience an enjoyable evening.

We can help you get started today. Our seasoned staff can help you choose exactly the right portable toilets for your needs and budget. Give us a call – toll free at 877-9-TOILET. You can also contact us here for a free quote.

Outdoor Event Planning for Spring GUIDE

Spring is here and that means the outdoor event planning season is in full swing!

All event planners face this season with both excitement and dread, because while
most things can run smoothly there are also the occasional challenges during the planning
and at the event.

“You call this sound?!?!?!?”

“Did you notice it’s 52 degrees outside and raining?”

“Do you really expect an audience to stand up for an hour at an event
that doesn’t include a mosh pit?”

And, one of our personal favorites,“Am I really supposed to walk 3 blocks to the restroom trailers?”

Of course, a good professional planner will anticipate these issues, but more and
more often, we discover that the person handling the event has so much on their plate or is someone who’s
been stuck with the job, or someone who thinks that planning her niece’s wedding means she can handle anything.

When it comes to sanitation services, we’ve got you covered. We can make your life easier as well as provide quality and affordable service for ANY size event and any budget. Doing things right (providing good sound, the right portable restroom rentals, chairs and having a ‘bad weather’ backup plan) does mean spending money. Skimping, however, could ruin your event and cost you plenty.

If you are planning an outdoor event this Spring or Summer, give us a call and see how we can make your life easier and your “To Do List” shorter.  Contact Don’s Johns friendly customer service agents today if you have further questions about portable toilets 877-9-TOILET.
