What A Crazy World We Live In!!

If someone told you in December that we would be fighting an unknown virus in 2020, which sadly has been killing people worldwide, would you have believed it? No? Me neither. It all still seems a little surreal to me, almost like we are living in a blockbuster film.

Lockdown for us at Need The Loo Toilet Hire was almost like any other day apart from much less traffic, out servicing, delivering and collecting toilets. I know some businesses have found times tough and I am sure there are more tough times to come but for us, it has been four months of really hard work. Need The Loo has doubled in size, with us picking up over 30 new clients from other toilet companies, who had shut down and were not servicing the toilets but amazingly still charging their clients for the privilege. We are an old fashioned business who treat their clients like we ourselves like to be treated.

As lockdown is being eased, folk are wanting to let their hair down after a good few months, so are booking toilets for socially distanced get togethers. Who can blame them!! Let’s hope a more normal life will return.

Keep safe out there and be respectful to one another……

Mid May 2020 Already!

What a complete crazy world we live in. Who could have predicted that we would have a world wide lockdown because of a deadly virus. I hope that you, your family and friends have remained safe and well during this period.

I did think at the start of lockdown that our business would be heavily affected because of the nature of the clients that we have, mainly small building firms and construction sites. Whilst a few of our clients did self isolate and suspend their toilet hire with us, other companies stayed working throughout. It came to our attention after 4 weeks when the phone was red hot with calls, that other toilet hire companies had completely shut down their operations, without any prior communication with their clients. Hence rather smelly and dirty toilets!!! Said clients were not happy and in one week alone we picked up 10 new clients and have continued to do so.

So whilst this dreaded virus has upset a lot of other business, it has actually helped ours. Because even though I could tell you till I was blue in the face that we are the best toilet company out there, until you actually hire one from me then you will not realise what a completely different company we are compared to the others. Our customers have been so impressed that they have been reviewing us on Google. It makes me feel really proud that all my hard work and commitment is slowly being recognised.

So why not jump on board with us for your portable toilet hire needs!!!

2020 Here we Come!!

2020 Here we Come!!

What an absolute cracker 2019 was for Need The Loo Toilet Hire!

The business is continuing to grow, with lots more toilets purchased but above all it still amazes me how well we are doing for such a young company. The tail end of December, business was slow as most of our clients were finishing off projects in preparation for Christmas so a few of our toilets came home for a well earned hot clean and refresh. Now January is here, business trade is picking up, with 7 toilets going out to clients in one day.

We have had a change around over the holiday break. Luke, my son has now come into the business and is taking on the role of Chief Loo Cleaner. For a young man he is doing very well and is very conscientious in his work. He is well aware of the reputation I have built up with my clients so doesn’t want to let the side down and hopefully in the future he will take over the business and I can retire! This in itself is great for me, as I can spend more time in the office generating more work and preparing quotations.

We already have a lot of weekend bookings starting in May for the event season, with more enquiries coming in most days. So it looks like 2020 will be twice as good as 2019!

 

What awful weather!

Sadly I can’t remember the last time we had a lovely sunny dry day. Not sure about you guys but gee I am fed up of this rain!! Although saying that I have been fairly lucky on my toilet cleaning days. i seem to be able to drive around the downpours and stay fairly dry with just the odd light shower hampering the job. I must not Laugh Out Loud…..the same cannot be said for Rob’s toilet cleaning days. Last week he went through 4 waterproof coats and several hats but at least he had the foresight to wear waterproof leggings.I can cope with most things in life but I really hate being wet through…..Even my trucking buddy Dexter hasn’t wanted to get out of the warm dry truck. Cant say I blame him….

Hopefully this will be the last week of rain and we can have some cold frosty days with the sun out shining. I wish!!!

Phew!!! A rest is needed.

Phew!!! A rest is needed.

Wow! What an amazing summer season we have had here at Need The Loo Toilet Hire. I believe we have supplied portable toilets to almost every kind of event possible from pop up kids play, Truck show, soap box derby, overnight camping, private functions, Tank show, a lovely setting at Warwick Castle for the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club and many more. The feedback we have had from our clients has been fantastic with many booking for next years events. Read our reviews on our web page or on Google. I do believe I am rapidly becoming known as the Toilet Lady with the lovely dog. Picture attached is of said lovely dog Dexter. He has been my trucking buddy since he was 8 months old!Our Construction Toilets are continuing to be busy with many new clients coming to us because of poor service received from other toilet companies. That is the difference of using a smaller, more personal business rather than a Nationwide company, which lose the connection with the client. I appreciate that we may not be the cheapest weekly hire out there, but I am a great believer in you get what you pay for. I would rather save my money to be able to buy quality rather than a cheaper product that won’t last.

Can’t believe how quickly the weather has turned and the mornings and nights are getting darker, lucky I have a great hat with a built in head torch! Now our weekends are a bit quieter now, hopefully I can get back to having a nice relaxing day off, might even book a spa day………

Crazy Few Weeks

Wow! What a crazy few weeks we have had here at Need The Loo Toilet Hire. Our Event toilets have been busy all over Warwickshire and the West Midlands for clients having celebrations. Numerous parties, including a 50th, several spur of the moment camp outs in the glorious weather, and a mega Bank Holiday weekend at the Tanks, Trucks and Firepower Show. Over 7,000 visitors using our clean and well maintained toilet facilities.

Our Site Toilets have had a few weeks of a quieter life, due to builders being on holiday and the school holidays. We expect them to be more utilised after this weekend with everyone being back at work and school. I must admit it has been fantastic travelling around on the quieter roads. Back to School run traffic here we come!

A few more busy weekends coming up till the end of the festival, show and party season. A well earned day off is much needed. Love the life of running your own business.
