Porta Potty Rental, Cleaning and Servicing Businesses

We have seen an uptick in porta potty business accounts lately – this is an industry that has seen significant growth for a number of reasons. With the increase in construction projects, music festivals, movie sets, and other public events across the country, these businesses are busier than ever.

From a coverage perspective, the pollution exposure can come from handling/placing the porta potties, transportation, and cleanup. For this class of business, PartnerOne Environmental can write the GL, CPL, E&O and Excess. Coverage starts at just $2,500 and can include a variety of enhancements. Learn more.
