Portable toilet hire for sporting events - Mobaloo Toilet Hire

Project:Ebor Festival Location:York Client:York Racecourse Dates:August (Annually)

The Ebor festival is the ‘gold ribbon’ and largest spectator event in York Races annual calendar with over 100,000 visitors over the 3 day meeting. Such a high profile sporting event, sees VIPs, sponsors, the corporate world, the media and general public come together, all with high expectations of the level of service they expect from the Ebor organisers.

The Ebor event is probably one Mobaloo’s most challenging sporting events, 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 complexity of the event, Mobaloo are heavily involved with York Racecourse at the planning stage and provide consultancy as to the best way to manage the portable toilet facilities throughout the 3 days.

The portable toilet hire services Mobaloo provide to the Ebor festival include:

  • 10 x VIP Luxury Loos
  • 6 x Disabled Loos
  • 6 x Event Series Mid Range Trailers
  • 30 x portable loos

Portable toilets are distributed and maintained throughout the whole of the course including the Members Area (County Stand), Tattershalls (Middle Area) and the Course Enclosure, each providing a different level of service to reflect the clientele of that area.

Given the scale of the event, and the consequences if any of the hired toilets were to malfunction, Mobaloo have two toilet engineers resident at York Racecourse for the duration of the event. 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 52 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 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.

Out of the 30,000 guests that visit the Ebor festival, around 10,000 will use Mobaloo’s rented portable toilets. As well as having two engineers on site, Mobaloo’s waste disposal vehicle (Bowser) remains at the event throughout the period of the event so that any waste can be removed as and when required, and any blockages can be dealt with immediately.

Project:6 Nations Rugby Tournament Location:Twickenham Client:Twickenham Rugby Dates:February (Annually)

As well as being one of the major events in the UK sporting calendar, for many businesses the 6 Nations Rugby Tournament is an opportunity to do business, to network and to build relationships with their most important customers. Corporate Hospitality is now big business, and making the right impression is key to achieving those client objectives.

Mobaloo work with a wide range of marquee hire and event management companies to deliver a first class portable toilet hire service that meets the high expectations of its paying corporate clients attending these kind of sporting events. These include companies like RBS, Nike, Ford, British Airways, Gillette, Guinness and EDF Energy.

At Twickenham, Mobaloo provide a wide range of loo hire services, working with such companies as:

  • Event Masters
  • Event Co
  • National Sporting Club
  • Coopers Marquees

Providing portable luxury toilets to the hospitality area for a sporting event such as the 6 Nations presents a different challenge than the likes of a major event like Ebor. Not only do the portable toilets need to be of the highest possible standard, but toilet usage tends to increase significantly and peak around certain periods of the day – before the game, at half time, and immediately after the game.

It is therefore essential that Mobaloo provide sufficient capacity to ensure users are not queuing to use the portable toilet facility. Typically, Mobaloo supplies 3 x VIP Luxury Loos, 1 x Disable Loo and 3 x Staff Toilets at a corporate hospitality event such as the 6 Nations. The other main challenge is the logistics of managing the delivery, removal and waste management of each portable toilet between each match.

As with any sporting or other major event, Mobaloo ensure at minimum two portable toilet engineers and the waste disposal vehicle (Bowser) is on site throughout the whole of the event to ensure the efficient running of the portable toilet hire operation.
