Navigating New York

New York may be famous for its Broadway shows and Empire State building, but it’s also made a name for itself for its congestion, morning, noon and night.

As such, municipal authorities aren’t too keen on having portable toilet rentals delivered in advance. “Even if an event is Sunday morning, we can’t drop off on Friday or pick them up on Monday or Tuesday,” says Abe Breuer, CEO of John to Go.

It’s more like delivering those porta potty rentals as early as 4 a.m. that day and collecting them by midnight, giving new meaning to 'The City That Never Sleeps'.

“Every permit given out is timed very narrowly,” he explains. Which means in a city pulsing with activity, from races to marathons to fairs, companies are hard pressed to meet the tight confines of the permits allowed for porta john rental NY. John to Go has made it its top priority to arrive within the city limits with all of its trucks, haulers and gear, to make sure everything is in tic-toc order.

“We pride ourselves on meeting our promise to arrive within the proper timeframe,” says Breuer. He references the many contacts his team has developed over the years, which are helpful in getting the necessary documents and in wrapping up a job.

With an eye on timeliness, the company was surprised to once receive a severe email from the city for failing to pick up its units within its permitted slot. If a driver should check out, a truck get stuck, or a flat tire threaten the whole operation, John To Go has made it its business to see the job done.

“The organizers of the event called us, really upset, that the city was warning they would be barred from ever holding their parade again,” he says. After multiple calls, John to Go confirmed its team had picked up the units as per the requirements; but still, Breuer wondered if perhaps a few units had been left behind. “Meanwhile the event organizer hopped on a train to see what was going on and I hopped in my car to head to the site as well.”

As it turns out, the offending port-o-johns belonged to another company from another event.

And as it has long committed, John to Go can continue to flash its credentials as the company that will get bathroom rentals done well in New York.

John to Go is on top of its cleaning supplies, purchasing the most effective and environmentally safe options.

A porta potty should be emptied once a week to reduce exposure to bacteria, which is why the company has many servicing trucks out on the road doing the work.

Workers scrub down the entire unit to rid it of stray germs and make sure consumers have a pleasant and hygienic restroom. The basin is filled with fresh water and yes, some blue goo, and then the unit is quickly restocked so its supplies don’t run low.
