Frequently Asked Questions

Q.) How are restroom trailers different from porta potties?
A.) There are vast differences between Grand Restroom trailers and porta potties. A porta pottie is basically a plastic box for mobility, while our restrooms are designed to be aesthetically pleasing. Porta potties have toilets with visible, odorous, open-air waste tanks. By contrast, our trailers have flushable toilets with running water that drain into an enclosed waste tank similar to home. Our restrooms are climate controlled which aids in comfort and odor control; porta potties do not have this option. Additionally, our restrooms are designed for comfort and added amenities such as upscal decor; porta potties are not designed for that function. Most importantly, porta potties are often unsanitary; Grand Restrooms are not only highly sanitary, but provide electrical amenities and hot & cold running water which is important for personal grooming and hygiene.

Q.) How often are your restroom trailers cleaned and sanitized?
A.) We take the demand for public health seriously and go through detailed measures to ensure a cleanliness that goes beyond what the eye can see.
