Our portable restrooms for rent are built to satisfy the needs of any industry, but we have come to notice that a few in particular use them the most. Some of our most frequent partners are those in the construction industry. Due to their constant movement on the job, from location to location, they are in need of portable restroom options quite frequently. Many of their job sites do not come equipped with necessary amenities for a positive workplace, and we are happy to supply them with the equipment they need to get the job done.

A big construction project has just broken ground in Kentucky. Two rival racetracks are coming together to build a racing track that will change the industry. An article from the Courier Journal shares the story:

 “Churchill Downs and Keeneland, two racetracks with contrasting cultures, broke common ground Tuesday on a new standardbred racing facility in Oak Grove, Kentucky.

Oak Grove Racing and Gaming, to be constructed at an estimated cost of $150 million adjacent to Fort Campbell, will be built in two phases. The first phase, which is expected to be completed in time for a 12-day October meet already approved by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC), will include a harness race track, stable facilities and a paddock.

The second phase, which will feature a grandstand, an amphitheater, a 128-room hotel and gaming facilities for 1,500 historical racing machines, is expected to be completed in the first half of 2020.

‘We are always looking at opportunities to strengthen the racing industry in Kentucky,' Churchill Downs said in a prepared statement. "Today, we’re excited to celebrate the great progress we’ve made in Oak Grove. This is the level of growth and development that can happen in our state when the industry, public officials, business leaders, and community members come together.’

Oak Grove Mayor Theresa Jarvis told Tuesday’s groundbreaking crowd that the new venue “will put our city on the map. ... This investment gives our community the chance to be part of the culture of horse racing in Kentucky.’”

This huge construction project was in need of portable restrooms for rent for the many staff that would be working onsite. We were glad to get their call and begin working with them on a solution.

Portable Restrooms for Rent for Construction

As we got to know and understand the project, we were able to show the construction team some options that would work for them. They were interested in portable restrooms for rent that were accessible to all and medium in size.

The best fit for their needs was the ADA +4 Station Oahu Series. This restroom trailer is 32 feet long and perfectly equipped to handle heavy use with a 135 gallon fresh water tank and 600 gallon waste tank.

The Oahu Series ADA Restroom Trailer includes one ADA-compliant suite and four additional unisex suites. Our ADA restroom trailers are special in that with a touch of a button, the ADA suite lowers completely to the ground, allowing for easy access and a ramp with a shorter footprint. Inside of the unit, visitors will find enough room for a full 360 degree turn in a wheelchair. The suite also includes grab rails for safety and an accessible sink.

The unisex suites of ADA portable restrooms for rent are equipped with a flushable toilet, shatterproof mirror, and sink vanity. We take pride in our interior design, using a tasteful colors and designer floors and decor to ensure that users have an elevated experience. 

The entire restroom trailer has insulated walls and ceiling to maintain a comfortable interior temperature. Additionally, to aid in climate control, the unit is equipped with air conditioning and heat strips, ensuring that the temperature stays comfortable no matter what outdoor weather is like. 

The exterior is built to last with dent-preventing material. We ensure that safe access into this ADA restroom trailer is a priority with ample porch lighting and sturdy, aluminum steps and rails. The design is sleek and fits in with any atmosphere, from grassroots to upscale.

Overall, this is was the pick of our portable restrooms for rent that was perfect for a company that needs a compact unit, a positive experience for employees, and a trailer that is durable. 

As we continue to partner with new businesses, we want to highlight the value of purchasing a restroom rental with the Smarter Restrooms App feature. Read ahead to discover three key upgrades that the app provides.

  1. Receive Timely Notifications

Each portable bathroom trailer unit comes with water saving flushable toilets, running water from sinks, and sometimes, showers and other amenities. This means that fresh water tank and waste tank levels require careful monitoring.

No need to do this math on your own any longer! The Smarter Restroom App sends the fleet managers alert notifications when waste and freshwater tank levels are 2⁄3 full or empty, causing the unit will be out of service shortly. This is sure to boost productivity, allowing your team to have easy access to the information they need to keep restroom rentals operating smoothly.

  1. All-In-One Control System

Nothing is more important than the experience of your guests. We want to ensure that every user has a comfortable experience in a climate-controlled unit with all the amenities of a brick-and-mortar restroom. This is an easy achievement with the app’s system operations control feature.

The app detects and controls shore power, interior climate temperatures, and up-to-date weather conditions, giving units winter protection from freezing temperatures and keeping things cool when hot. This ensures that restroom fleet managers stay updated from a remote location - they’ll know what changes are needed to the unit and when, which allows for a consistently pleasant restroom experience for guests.

The app also allows for geometric locating, allowing managers to see the exact locations of all portable bathroom trailers at all times.

  1. Offsite Unit Management

The most tasking part of operating a portable bathroom trailer fleet is basic management. Making the trip back and forth to one or many units takes up valuable time, which can lower efficient customer service. The app addresses this issue as well.

Managers have capabilities to remotely control lights, air conditioning, heating, water heaters, and trailer power. This means managers can operate more restroom trailers off-site, expand their operations, and provide superior service.

Overall, the Smarter Restrooms App was developed to allow businesses who use or own restroom rentals to manage them more effectively. The app allows the management team to get more done in less time, makes fleet operations easier in general, and saves valuable employee time. Now, with the app, portable bathroom trailer renters and owners can ensure that restroom visitors have a top-notch experience with less manual labor.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YEAR-END TAX STRATEGIES WITH PORTABLE BATHROOM TRAILERS

Although the end of the year quickly approaches, it is important for many businesses to continue looking for ways to save money and make smart investments. Many may be inclined to wait until 2020 to sell their used portable restroom trailer or to buy a new one, thinking this is the best course of action. Much to these business owners’ surprise, this is not the case!

Under the Section 179 Deduction, you can earn a tax break by selling and buying NOW! This is a savings for all business owners that not many are aware of; there is no advantage in waiting to sell or buy new portable restroom trailers. If you wait until January 1, 2019, you may actually lose money! Capitalize on great deals with our in-stock units to save on the total cost, and ensure delivery by December 31, 2018 to qualify for the section 179 deduction.

As stated on the IRS website:

“You can elect to recover all or part of the cost of certain qualifying property, up to a limit, by deducting it in the year you place the property in service. This is the section 179 deduction. You can elect the section 179 deduction instead of recovering the cost by taking depreciation deductions.”

What is the Section 179 Deduction?

Using the Section 179 tax code, you can deduct the full purchase price of any equipment which qualifies and is purchased or financed during the tax year in question. What this means is if you buy or lease equipment (like portable restroom trailers), it is possible to deduct the full purchase price from your gross income. By adding up your total equipment, software, and vehicles purchased for your business in 2019, you can write off or expense up to 100% of the cost of a portable restroom for purchase for up to $500,000, and then 50% of the remaining balance up to $2,000,000! Leveraging this deduction allows businesses to jump on what they need now instead of waiting over the next few years by only writing off the depreciation values. With industry price increases on the horizon reaching 6-10%, this is just another reason to purchase now instead of waiting.

Assets eligible for the deduction don’t need to be brand new, just new to you. This means that new and used portable restroom trailers are applicable. If you purchase a new portable restroom or shower trailer, we also offer a great one-year buy back program of up to 80% of the original purchase price based on unit condition.

To make this process easier for our customers, we have secured extremely attractive financing through our bank. We are offering 90 days same as cash with some of the best rates ever on portable restroom trailer equipment. Contact us to learn more about our financing offers.

Fill out our contact form or give us a call at 1-877-600-8645 to find our about taking advantage of the Section 179 Deduction on your portable restroom trailer lease, purchase, or sale! In order to qualify, the equipment must be purchased and out in to use by December 31st, 2019, so act soon!
