How many units will I need for my event?

Herring uses an exact formula so you have enough units for what you need but don’t have to pay for more than you’ll use.

When will the units be delivered?

Herring Portable Toilet delivery men try to deliver the units the day before the event so we don’t conflict with any of your other deliveries or put stress on you the day all the activity is happening. Generally Herring will pick up the unit the Monday (or the day) after the event.

How far in advance do I need to place an order for a unit?

Herring mans its office Monday through Friday and ½ day on Saturday. So you can call anytime, even last minute, but we love at least a day’s notice. But we suggest you schedule it in advance so it takes the stress off your last minute planning. We’ll make sure it’s delivered as you request.
