There are several factors which we feel indicate that our service is the best in St. Louis. First, we have incredibly nice looking units. They are all very new and we go out of our way to keep them looking nice. Many people have commented that our portable toilets are the nicest that they have ever seen or used. The attractive appearance of our units is accentuated because they are always delivered clean and sanitized. Second, our weekly service is excellent. Our men scour and disinfect the toilets during each weekly service visit. (A sanitizer which is used in hospitals is utilized.) During this time, they replenish the paper products, pump the tank and refill it with fresh water. Our men are so prompt in keeping their weekly service schedule that they are at your site almost the same exact time each week. Construction professionals are constantly informing us that our units are the best maintained that they have ever used. Third, our pricing is very reasonable.
We are very sure that you will be happy with the units and service we offer. We pride ourselves in going out of our way to meet our customers’ needs and would like to provide the same great service for you.
Portable Toilets Are Valuable For Several Reasons:
A clean portable toilet improves worker morale.
A clean portable toilet located at a job site indicates that the boss desires to meet his workers' needs. The workers do not need to be creative in looking around for alternative bathroom facilities. This can lead to an unsanitary work environment. The waste will remain long after the workers leave the job site and your customers move in. Instead, they can use a clean, sanitary location. This will result in more efficient work time and a better attitude on the job site. Also, it will reduce the travel time to and from alternative sites saving workers' break times, it will increase the cleanliness of the work environment, and workers do not have to work in an uncomfortable state. A toilet can best be kept clean by providing 1 toilet per 10 workers for a 40 hour work week. The toilet should be placed within 100 feet of the actual work area.
A portable toilet can result in reduced costs on the work site.
The chart below reveals the savings that can be attained by reducing the time a worker must look around for a place to use bathroom facilities. Adding a facility will shorten the distance workers must travel or prevent workers from having to use unsanitary alternatives, thereby producing time (and cost) savings. In a study done by the University of Missouri at St. Louis it was determined that installing an additional unit reduced the length of time wasted waiting for a unit to become available or walking to a unit amounted to an average of 15 minutes per worker, per day. Look what just an additional 10 minutes toilet time costs you in production:
$7.00 $8.00 $10.00 $13.00 $15.00
$1487.50 $1670.00 $2125.00 $2762.50 $3187.50
$2975.00 $3400.00 $4250.00 $5525.00 $6375.00
FORMULA: Hourly Rate divided by 60 Minutes Per Hour x 10 Minutes x Number of Employees x 255 Days Per Year.
The presence of a portable toilet presents a more professional image for the construction site manager.
The fact that a construction company places portable toilets on site for their employees and subcontractors indicates that they go the extra mile and that they take care of every detail in the construction process. The presence of a portable toilet presents a professional image to the general public (potential customers) and other individuals involved in the construction profession.
Cost of Inadequate Portable Toilet Facilities
This report is based on the results of a project completed by students and faculty members of the Center for Business and Industrial Studies at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
There are two types of costs associated with failing to provide adequate portable sanitation facilities. The first type is that of deterioration of public health conditions. The second type of cost is the economic impact suffered by promoters and vendors.
Threat to public health increases with the size of the queue. Our observations lead to the conclusion that people are more patient than is suggested by the 10 minutes which they give as the maximum acceptable wait to use the portable sanitation facilities. This patience does have limits, of course, and these limits appear to be encountered when the queue size reaches the mid-teens. At this point people make their own arrangements--arrangements which, jeopardize public health and often interfere with the enjoyment of the event experienced by others.
Beyond this problem is that of the conditions existing within the units. This is particularly troublesome when the units are not serviced. The chemical treatment is overtaxed, splash becomes a problem and the general level of sanitation is inadequate. As a result, individuals are faced with the unappealing choices of using an offensive unit, making their own arrangements or leaving the event.
Choosing to leave is the response which has the most direct financial impact, and it represents the second type of cost associated with inadequate portable sanitation facilities. These costs can be roughly calculated. While the numbers vary from event to event, the calculations can be made for two groups: First, is the group which leaves the event prematurely because of an aversion to using the portable sanitation facilities. This group totaled only about 5% in this study, but represented a substantial loss in revenue nonetheless. An important point to notice here is that savings generated by having fewer units at one event are quickly eliminated when people leave early because of the long waits or unsanitary conditions of the portable sanitation facilities.
The second group is considerably larger and harder to influence. This is the group which has no plans to use the portable sanitation facilities. For this group (about a third of the crowd) the obstacle appears to be attitudinal in nature. They come to the event planning not to use the portable sanitation facilities and planing to stay a shorter period of time than those who plan to use them. The impact of getting only 10% of this group to reconsider and thereby lengthen their visits would be substantial. We feel that any of the Luxury Restroom line will help to impact this segment of your patrons. The flushing toilets, sinks, and modern conveniences should positively influence this segment of your crowd.
We take pride in what we do and are serious when we say, "We want your stinking business!"
