Frequently asked questions

on a need to know basis...

What makes your toilets different from other luxury loos for hire?

The differences are both visual and functional:

  • Our toilets are built by hand from wood and corrugated steel to match traditional designs of shepherd’s huts – they are not fibreglass boxes with curtains around the wheels

  • Our toilets use a fresh water flush system just like your own bathrooms at home. So, rather than the blue chemical recirculating system commonly used in portable loos which have a chemical odour that gets stronger during the event, our loos are more hygienic and have no chemical smell. 

  • Our loos not only have hot running water, but deliver a proper amount of water to wash your hands, a welcome relief to anyone who has received a thimble full of water each time you have hit the taps in other luxury loos

  • Paper towels have their place, but not in our toilets – we provide freshly laundered hand towels.

 

How many people will your huts cater for?

Our huts are able to cater for up to 250 guests. For larger events we can supply multiple units or the unit can be emptied partway through an event, for an additional fee.

 

How do we know if we can get one of your huts into our venue?

We will visit your chosen venue to ensure we have the necessary access and that the right location can be agreed before taking your booking.

 

What if we don’t have water and or an electricity supply close by?

We can supply a water tank and pump unit at an additional charge. The huts electricity supply can be run off a generator if you are using one for other services or if one is not available we can supply a suitable generator at an additional charge.

 

How are the huts delivered?

Your hut will be delivered to site by a 4X4 at an agreed time and date before your event. The hut will be placed in the agreed location and connected by our delivery team, so it is ready to use for your event.

 

When and where can the hut be placed at the venue?   

The Hut should be placed in advance of your event so as to allow our 4x4 tow vehicle to get out of your way and, depending on location and access, in advance of access limitations such as the marquee being erected. The Huts require an area of about 6 metres by 3 metres on level and firm ground with a water and 13amp electricity supply within a reasonable distance.​

 

Are delivery dates flexible?

​We will do our best to make sure your needs are met.  As a guide, for weekend events we typically set up on a Thursday or Friday (you should not be worrying about whether the loos have turned up on the day itself!) and clear away on a Sunday or Monday as agreed with you and any site constraints you may have.  For weekday events we will co-ordinate timings with you to ensure that your facilities are ready on time.

 

What else comes with the hut?

When the hut is set up by the delivery team it will have quality hand wash, hand lotion and baskets of freshly laundered hand towels, together with loo rolls and feminine essentials baskets containing a selection of items.

 

Do you offer a valet service?

​We can provide a valet service if requested in advance at an additional charge of £155 for an eight hour period. The valet will keep the loos fresh and restocked if necessary. We would recommend this for larger or longer events.

 

What if there is a problem during our event?                           

​Don’t panic. We will be available on call during your event to rectify any problems should they occur.  If required, we will hop in the car and come over to sort it out.

If you have a question that is not answered in any of the above FAQs please contact us and we will do our best to provide an answer.
