Portable toilets and restroom trailers are available for rent across the U.S. However, they range widely in price, with the cost determined by the number and style of units ordered. Price also varies depending on rental length; the special event prices below include weekend or one-day rental.

Typical costs:

  • A standard portable restroom (non-flushing) rental typically costs $100 to $175 per weekend. An economic solution, these non-flushing toilets are common for sporting events and construction sites.
  • A handicap accessible restroom (non-flushing) rental typically costs $150 to $250 per weekend. These units are larger to comply with ADA guidelines, and are also accessible for parents assisting younger children in the restroom.
  • A fresh-water flushing toilet rental typically costs $150 to $375 per weekend. This may or may not include a sink, but will likely include a hand sanitizer pump. Among one of the cleanest restroom options, flushing toilets are a popular choice for weddings or business events.
  • A deluxe portable restroom rental with multiple toilets may cost $1,000 to $4,500 per weekend. With cost varying by size, deluxe restroom trailers are popular for high-end weddings and special events where guests are made to feel like they're entering an actual building instead of a single stall.

What should be included:
  • Portable restrooms may come with or without sinks and a hand sanitizer pump may be included.
  • Deluxe restroom trailers should include several sanitized toilets and/or urinals and hand-washing stations. Starting at two stalls each, some include separate facilities for men and women. With heat, A/C, lighted vanities, hot and cold water sinks and flushing toilets, deluxe trailers provide a VIP experience.
  • Rental should include delivery, set-up and pickup after the event, as well as waste disposal.
  • The provider will supply toilet paper and deodorizer in the toilet.
  • When renting a portable sink, soap and paper towels should be included.
  • Toilets should accommodate around 90 to 100 uses each before disposal is needed. For long-term rentals, the service provider will regularly empty and sanitize the portable restrooms.
Additional costs:
  • Some companies charge a $50 to $200 non-refundable reservation fee for deluxe restrooms.
  • Adding a hand-washing station with two sinks will typically cost $200 per weekend through a company like United Site Services[1] .
  • Read the contract to see if the company adds a fuel surcharge (delivery/pickup fee) or waste handling (disposal) fee. A reliable company will be upfront about all rental costs in the initial quote.
  • Avoid Saturday or Sunday delivery, which may incur additional fees. Weekend rentals typically deliver on a Friday and are picked up on a Monday.
Shopping for a portable restroom:
  • Porta-John[2] 's event planning guide can help estimate the number of units to rent based on the number of guests and the length of the event. Favor Ideas[3] recommends planning on one portable toilet for every 35 guests at an outdoor wedding.
  • Companies like United Site Services[4] carry white portable restrooms suitable for outdoor weddings. The site also offers a slide show[5] of luxury restroom trailers and a planning guide[6] to help choose portable restrooms for a special event. Porta-John[7] also carries wedding-appropriate "comfort stations" and the company has a wide geographic reach.
  • Mr. John rentals suggests looking into permits when renting a portable restroom for a public park, starting with the municipal office where the event will take place. You might be referred to the parks and recreation department, zoning department or health department.
  • Mesa Waste Services[8] , a toilet rental co-op, offers guidelines on shopping for a rental restrooms, a heads up on additional fees and an interactive search for companies in your area. They also offer a photo guide[9] showing the amenities of each restroom type and typical dimensions.
  • If you can't find a pretty portable toilet, The Knot[10] suggests dressing up the restrooms by renting a tent to cover the units entirely. You could also freshen up the interior by stocking restrooms with mints, hand sanitizer and lotion.
