Beaver Tool Hire (Chichester) is amongst a number of companies that have successfully added a toilet hire operation to meet growing demand after having re-hired units in the past. 

“We currently have 132 toilets in the fleet comprising Shorelink International and Satellite Industries models,” operations director Tony Criddle told me. 

“We are serving mainly construction sites and contractors undertaking work for domestic customers. Since Covid-19 many homeowners don’t really want outsiders using their facilities and they don’t think twice about adding a modest weekly toilet hire fee to the cost of a large extension or landscaping project.” 

The Beaver Toilet Hire operation got under way in earnest last spring. Additional drivers and service personnel have been recruited and four dedicated delivery and service vehicles have been procured, finished in a different grey livery from the company’s tool hire fleet. 

Toilets can be delivered from each of Beaver’s six depots in Chichester, Fareham, Petersfield, Portsmouth, Waterlooville and Winchester. 

“We’ve had a lot of great support from the Portable Sanitation Europe trade association and Severn Trent Water talked us carefully through getting our waste carriers licence and other operational aspects,” said Tony. 

“You obviously have to be very thorough in every area of operations. However, a particular plus-point is that apart from weekly servicing, the toilets are generally maintenance-free compared with tools and equipment.”
