Standard or luxury honey wagon hire

29 May 2024

With over 20 years’ experience of supplying honey wagons to the film and TV industry, we look at the best portable toilets for hire for your next shoot.

At Fortis Hire, we always recommend luxury toilet hire for our honey wagon clients but to help you make an informed decision, let’s take a look at the difference between standard portable toilet hire and luxury toilet hire.

Features of standard portable toilets

  • Basic level, functional interior
  • Single use units only
  • Single mirror – no vanity area
  • No heaters
  • Overhead lighting
  • Foot operated flush
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Modestly sized interior (1.16m wide)
  • Moulded plastic flooring

Plastic portable toilets satisfy the essential welfare needs of users, and are perfect for construction workers and farm workers where they fulfil the HSE requirements for compliance.  However, on a film or TV set, we believe luxury toilet hire offers your cast and crew the quality of facilities and the level of comfort they deserve!

Features of luxury toilets for hire

  • High end interiors
  • Running hot and cold water
  • Heaters in all (except the smallest)
  • Wood effect flooring
  • Spacious vanity areas
  • Well-lit mirrors
  • Flushing toilets
  • Ceramic toilets and basins
  • Luxury consumables
  • Choice of units to choose from

As a location manager, perhaps working within the constraints of a strict budget, why should you hire luxury toilets? Surely a toilet is a toilet?

The benefits of luxury honey wagon hire for location managers

Luxury toilet hire offers many benefits – no location ever needs to be passed by for lack of facilities, and cast and crew will have a space to take time out from their busy schedule. In urban areas too, the use of portable toilet hire means existing facilities will not be overstretched and can be kept for public use and of course, they are available round the clock where permanent facilities might be locked after a certain time in the evening. 

Wide choice of luxury toilets for hire

While our standard portable toilet comes in one style only, plus a plastic disabled toilet option, we offer a wide choice of luxury toilet units for every situation. As We Are Albert suppliers, we are mindful of the environmental impact of our industry and offer the most eco-friendly models on the market, as part of our luxury toilet range. The Fresh Flush toilet trailer is solar powered, requiring no energy supply, and is water saving and chemical-free. Whatever the size of your production, we have a trailer to suit your every need, that will service from fewer than 100 users to in excess of 450!  To view our recommended products for filming, see our Luxury Toilet Hire for Filming.
