Portable toilet hire for Equestrian & Agricultural shows - Mobaloo Toilet Hire

Project:Great Yorkshire Show Location:Harrogate Client:Yorkshire Agricultural Society Dates:July (Annually)

The Great Yorkshire Show attracts over 125,000 visitors every year. Whilst its roots may have been in agriculture trade, it has grown into an exhibition that attracts a wide range of exhibitors and visitors, whose interests range from Livestock and Country Pursuits, to Food and Fashion.

With over 200 exhibitors, planning such an event is a huge logistical challenge. Mobaloo are required to prepare and deliver their portable toilets to the Great Yorkshire Showground one week prior to the event start date.

Wet weather and muddy boots, combined with livestock can carry a lot of dirt, muck and grime so it is Mobaloo’s job to ensure the portable toilets are regularly cleaned throughout the event.

All hired portable toilets are professionally plumbed into the main drain and water supplies, and tested prior to the start date to ensure all works are operating efficiently. Both an engineer and a waste disposal truck are retained on site throughout the duration of the event to ensure the portable toilet facilities continue to operate efficiently.

Project:Pony European Championships Location:Bishop Burton, East Yorkshire Client:FEI (Federation of Equestrian) Dates:July (Annually)

The FEI European Pony Championships 2010 presented by Bishop Burton College provides the opportunity for Europe’s best young riders to battle it out and be crowned European Champions in show jumping, dressage or eventing.

The FEI European Pony Championships is a truly ‘outdoor’ event and as such can be a particularly challenging project for Mobaloo, due to a number of factors:

  • High visitor numbers and high toilet usage
  • Size, scope and variation of surfaces throughout the site
  • Number and variation of the type of toilets required
  • Major impact of weather upon visitor movements and toilet usage

Because of the scale of the equestrian event, Mobaloo are involved with Bishop Burton College during the initial planning stages to establish the best way to position and manage the portable toilets on hire during the event – which lasts for one week.

The portable toilet hire services Mobaloo provide festival include:

  • 2 x VIP Luxury Loos for Champagne Area and Corporate Sponsors
  • 2 x Disabled Loos
  • 6 x Event Series Mid Range Trailers
  • 20 x portable loos
  • 400 Gallon Waste tanks for caravan & horse box waste (to empty elson tank)

Portable toilets are distributed and maintained throughout the whole of the venue each providing a different level of service to reflect the clientele of that area.

Given that the equestrian event expects over 15,000 visitors each day, the consequences should any of the hired portable toilets malfunction would be significant. To minimise the risk, Mobaloo guarantee two portable toilet engineers to be resident for the whole of the week to ensure the efficient operation of the portable toilet facilities.

Mobaloo’s waste disposal vehicle (Bowser) also remains on site throughout the period of the event so that any waste can be removed from the portable toilets as and when required, and any blockages can be dealt with immediately.

It is not uncommon as a result of changing weather conditions to have to move portable toilets at short notice to accommodate the resulting movement in visitors to different areas on the racecourse. In this scenario, Mobaloo have to consider the logistics and any health and safety implications.

In terms of the set up, Mobaloo are required to deliver and set up all 30 fully functioning portable toilets, within a 2 hour window, on the day before the event begins. Using our low loader truck to deliver and unload the rented portable toilets, up to 40 Mobaloo staff are involved to set up all the portable toilets so that they are ready for use.

All portable toilets are steamed cleaned, sanitised and stocked with the relevant consumables before arrival to ensure a speedy delivery and set up process.
