Protecting Homes Under Construction

December 9th, 2014

According the National Equipment Registry, billions of dollars worth of construction equipment and supplies is stolen annually which is not accounting additionally for the value of supplies such as copper.  Copper theft alone causes nearly $1 billion in losses to businesses yearly and according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), builders lose over $4 billion annually total. According to LoJack, New Jersey is 5th in the nation when it comes to equipment theft, creating costly concern for contractors and home builders.  This all means higher expenses for builders who have to pass the cost of theft to buyers.  The NAHB estimates that home builders should add about 1.5% to the total price of the average new home to offset costs related to theft and vandalism.

Construction Site Protection

Here are some ways to help prevent theft on your job sites:

  1. Use temporary fencing to close up your site, making it harder to enter and remove equipment and supplies.
  2. Employ security guards to protect the site overnight and also consider renting a portable guard shack.
  3. Have a lock down area for tools and supplies and make sure to lock up equipment and perimeter before your crew leaves for the night.
  4. Remove all keys from the site at night and do not share information on where spare keys are kept.
  5. Run background checks on employees and other contractors on site, many thefts are inside jobs.
  6. Install lighting to turn on at night.  Jobsite theft generally occurs at night and keeping the area well lit can act as a deterrent.
  7. Take down all of the serial numbers on your equipment and tools and keep accurate inventory of your supplies.
  8. Prosecute to the fullest extent to send a message to any other potential thieves and vandals.
  9. Order materials to come “just in time” delivery to minimize the quantity of valuable materials left on site. According to an NAHB survey about jobsite theft, 86% of builders practiced just-in-time delivery.

10.  Take out insurance on your project to cover your equipment, materials and tools in case of theft or vandalism.

It is best to be proactive when it comes to site security and while theft will not be completely eliminated, steps can be taken to protect your sites and greatly reduce the likelihood of costly thefts.

Johnny on the Spot, LLC. (JOTS), a leading provider of portable restrooms and temporary fencing recently provided a young fan a special experience as an Employee for a Day.

Grant’s day began at his own personalized locker where he received Johnny on the Spot apparel and then was given an informative tour of JOTS’ facilities.  Among the portable toilets he saw were the Standard Restroom, Celebrity Restroom and Emerald II Elite Coach Luxury Restroom Trailer.

Grant’s smile, excitement and enthusiasm were contagious on his visit. This carried over to Halloween as he trick-or-treated as a  Johnny on the Spot portable restroom.

Grant said he would like to own a portable restroom company in the future. While Johnny on the Spot wishes him the best on this endeavor, JOTS does not know how it could compete with his smile.

Johnny on the Spot, LLC. Saves Moonachie, NJ Weddings with Luxury Restroom Trailer Rentals

November 11th, 2014

Johnny on the Spot, LLC. (JOTS) recently came to the rescue for a wedding filled Halloween weekend at a popular northern New Jersey wedding venue by providing luxury restroom trailer rentals during a water main break.

The soon to be married couple arrived at The Graycliff Friday night not knowing earlier that contractors had broken a water line just outside of the Moonachie, NJ banquet hall earlier that afternoon.  Faced with the challenge of having adequate restroom facilities in place or cancel the weddings, The Graycliff staff set out in search of a solution to meet codes and also to please their clients.  After placing a call to Johnny on the Spot and learning more about their line of Elite Coaches Luxury Restroom Trailers, a solution was found in the Sapphire VII with emergency delivery to be performed in only a few hours.

“These people, they plan a wedding for a long time and you have to give them a wedding under any circumstances that happen,” Graycliff owner Tony Papamarkos said. Papamarkos worked with Johnny on the Spot to finalize a restroom trailer choice and coordinate logistics just hours before wedding festivities were set to begin. The Johnny on the Spot delivery technician, Sean Flaherty, was greeted with open arms, navigating the compromised streets around the Graycliff to position the Sapphire Series restroom trailer for use. “We pride ourselves on having the finest equipment and the fastest turnaround time in the business to provide service to emergencies of all kinds, even at weddings in this case,” said JOTS Operations Manager Marvin Hyer Sr.

Johnny on the Spot was thrilled to have provided a happy ending for the couples and the venue in their time of need.  The luxury restroom trailer provisions allowed the celebrations to go on and avoid wedding horror on Halloween.

Portable Sanitation Services for Hurricane Season

September 29th, 2014

Was Sandy the Big One?

A recent report states that Hurricane Sandy was not the "Big One" that the east coast thinks it was. But before we get carried away and scare anyone, it should be mentioned that insurance company Swiss Re created the report that states a hurricane more devastating than Hurricane Sandy could make landfall and create $100 billion worth in damages along the east coast. Actually, it even claims that such a hurricane made landfall back in 1821. However, the tools we have for measuring storms today are obviously much more advanced than the tools used to measure the 1821 Norfolk-Long Island Hurricane. Some of this report is speculation and not fact, and although it’s hard to believe a hurricane causing more damage than Sandy, it is always important to be prepared for anything.

Hopefully no hurricane ever comes close to affecting the northeast the way Sandy did. But when any storm affects your town, big or small, Johnny On The Spot will be right there ready to help with the portable sanitation services required to protect the safety of ordinary people.

Emergency preparedness is key, and Johnny On The Spot can play a large role in ensuring that towns and cities in NJ, NY and PA are kept safe. In emergency situations, Johnny On The Spot will work in conjunction with FEMA efforts to assist affected areas. We will also work alongside city government during non-emergency situations or situations that do not qualify for support from FEMA.

Some Good News This Hurricane Season

Here’s the good news! Even though reports like the one by Swiss Re could have some truth behind them, meteorologists at AccuWeather.com predicted back in May that this hurricane season would be a subdued one.

The meteorologists predicted that just two big storms would make landfall between June and late October. So far, so good. Of course, many of the worst storms tend to take place around September and October.

"If we have a robust El Niño develop, then the numbers will be much lower and this could be one of the least active years in recent memory," AccuWeather.com senior meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said.

Here’s hoping Dan is right, but Johnny On The Spot will be ready, just in case.

If your municipality ends up being hit hard by a hurricane this season, portable restrooms, non-potable water solutions, High Rise Slings or another one of our many products and services from Johnny On The Spot can help.

Need for Portable Sanitation Outdoes Hillary Clinton, Politics in Iowa

September 23rd, 2014

Iowa made headlines earlier this week when Hillary Clinton spoke to a crowd of 5,000 people at the Harkin Steak Fry in Indianola. She hinted at her possible candidacy for the upcoming presidential election when she announced, "I'm back!" However, the real story was almost overlooked during all the political hubbub: a lack of portable restrooms.

We’re not sure how Hillary grabbed all the attention when innocent people were left on long lines. All the big media outlets were talking about the Clintons. Thankfully, at least one journalistic organization realized the importance of portable sanitation.

According to the Des Moines Register, lines for the portable restrooms were as high as 60 people long. The crowd of approximately 5,000 was forced to rely on just six portable restrooms on the west side of the event. This portable restroom disaster resulted in 30-minute waits in many cases. Meanwhile, a line of 100 people was seen on the east side attempting to use a restroom trailer.

At Johnny On The Spot, we don’t like to hear about large events with deficiencies in portable restroom access. That's why we offer a variety of solutions for every type of party or outdoor event, and when you’re unsure of just how many portable restrooms you need, we’ll give you a hand. We will send one of our representatives to offer their expert advice and make a recommendation.

For a better idea of how many portable toilets you might need for your next event, take a look at this useful Special Event Extended Chart Breakdown provided by Portable Sanitation Association International. Johnny On The Spot representatives will always be sure to recommend the highest quality and most affordable options for special events.

Johnny On The Spot offers many quality solutions for large events. We even carry some portable restrooms that the Clintons might feel comfortable using. For the classiest scenarios, try our Celebrity Restroom. This feat of portable sanitation comes with flushing toilets, foot pump sinks, waste paper baskets, mirrors, artificial flowers, solar lights, magazine racks, coat hooks and a perfumed fragrance that greets you at the door.

Of course, Johnny On The Spot also carries Standard Restrooms. Despite its name, the Standard Restroom is anything but standard. We are confident that you will be extremely satisfied with our Standard Restroom Design. It will steal the show at any event – even if someone like Hillary Clinton tries to steal the show again.

Also, don’t forget about temporary fencing and barricade fencing. They can make an event planner’s job much easier.

If you are interested in any of our services or products, contact Johnny On The Spot Today! You can also reach us at 1-800-491-5687 for more information.

Don’t forget to ask us about a free consultation. We will send one of our representatives out to your location to help you decide which products would work best for your next event.

Temporary Fencing for Oktoberfest, Beer Gardens and Other Outdoor Events

September 18th, 2014

It's getting close to that special autumn holiday. No, we're not talking about Halloween or Thanksgiving. We're talking about Oktoberfest.

Even though the traditional German holiday is called Oktoberfest, it actually begins in September. So, if you're in charge of organizing a special event for the holiday, don't delay your preparations. Temporary Fencing from Johnny On The Spot can be a huge help to you and your business.

Beer gardens have become increasingly popular (as has celebrating Oktoberfest) in the United States. But, while these outdoor beer venues are enjoyable, they can make crowd control quite difficult. While you might want to increase staff and security, Temporary Fencing can actually help your current staff keep control and limit liabilities. Crowd control is extremely important when it comes to serving alcohol, especially during large events.

In addition to Temporary Fencing, Johnny On The Spot also carries products like barricade fencing. Both of these products can be useful to bar and restaurant owners during Oktoberfest and other outdoor events. Each serves a specific purpose and both can also be used in conjunction with one another for the best results. If you aren't sure what you're going to need this Oktoberfest, ask Johnny On The Spot to help! We will send one of our representatives to your place of business for a free consultation to help advise you on the best solution for your Temporary Fencing needs.

Our Temporary Fencing comes in 6X10 or 8X10 panels, depending on what you are looking for. We can also provide sand bags, privacy screens and gates for any kind of outdoor event.

Fun Fact

Did you know Oktoberfest has been celebrated since 1810? The festival celebrates the marriage of King Ludwig I and Therese Saxe-Hildburghausen. Today, Oktoberfest is celebrated for 17 or 18 days (depending on the year) and ends on October 1st or 2nd. Around 7 million liters of beer are consumed during Oktoberfest each year in Munich alone.

That's a lot of beer. You probably won't be serving nearly as much beer at your Oktoberfest event, but your outdoor beer garden could always benefit from some additional restrooms for patrons.

In addition to Temporary Fencing and barricade fencing, you might also want to look at the portable restrooms offered by Johnny On The Spot. We have several solutions for sanitation at large outdoor events, including Standard Restrooms, Celebrity Restrooms, Luxury Restroom Trailers and Deluxe Restrooms. Each of these products would work well in any beer garden this fall. If you're still not sure, don't forget to ask one of our representatives to help you decide what would work best.

If you would like to find out more about Johnny On The Spot and our products, contact us for your next outdoor event here, or call 1-800-491-5687.

Portable Restroom Rentals And Barricade Fencing for Large Events

September 15th, 2014

Have you ever held a large event and realized too late that you had forgotten or underestimated one of the most essential services for your attendees? If you've made this mistake before then you may already know we're talking about portable restrooms. Providing for necessary sanitation needs is a critical, yet unglamorous task, and is often overlooked in favor of the more visible elements when planning a big event.

Johnny On The Spot will take care of the hard work of managing your portable restroom plan, so you don't need to worry about it. You have enough on your plate as it is with all of your other event details. Just keep in mind that sufficient quality portable restrooms can affect your event's success in a big way. Take a look at this negative review of the Made In America music festival in Los Angeles:

Public restrooms were limited the James Dean Stage-side of Grand Park, which meant there was nowhere to go if you wanted to stake your claim by the Marilyn and Dylan stages. The lone Porta-Potty stall by the first aid tent guarded by security in front of the Marilyn stage wasn't allowed for public use. There also weren't enough Porta-Pottys in the beer garden, which meant one heck of a line and no toilet paper by sundown. For today, find a stall and remember how to get there quick.

Planning a large event requires a coordinated effort to make sure everything gets done the right way. We pride ourselves on our ability to work with our customers to make sure that everything they need has been taken care of in a timely fashion. If you're not sure what you might require, a representative for Johnny On The Spot will come out to you and make a professional recommendation. We will help you determine the quantity of portable restrooms needed, the type, be it the standard restroom, the celebrity restroom or a luxury restroom trailer, and the ideal location(s) based on your venue.

We also provide temporary and barricade fencing for all types of outdoor events. Barricade fencing makes it easier to control long lines of people and creates a safe and organized environment for your patrons. It also ensures to organize cars and ease traffic flow in overcrowded parking lots.

If you expect a big crowd, make sure you look at both of these products. They can be the difference between a successful event and a not-so-successful one.

No matter what your event is, use Johnny On The Spot to help everything go smoothly. We're here to help make sure you have one less thing to worry about.

Don't hesitate to contact us or call us at 1-800-491-5687 for more information about our portable restrooms.

Portaoke: The Art of Singing in a Portable Restroom

September 11th, 2014

There's a traveling national cycling festival called the Tour De Fat and it has an attraction that we're pretty fond of: portaoke. What is portaoke? It's exactly what it sounds like, it's the art of singing along to classic hits while in a porta potty!

Here at Johnny On The Spot, we always like when a portable restroom gets some attention. Unfortunately, it seems like showers get all the credit for being the best place to sing. We're hoping that portaoke catches on so that portable restrooms start getting some of the credit they deserve. (They have surprisingly good acoustics.) Give it a try next time you're using a standard restroom from Johnny On The Spot.

The Tour De Fat is still going strong through this fall in case you were wondering how you could get in on the portaoke action. The tour rolls through Denver, Colorado on Sept. 6 before continuing on to San Francisco, San Diego and Tempe, Arizona. If you don't think you'll be able to make it out to any of those cities in the near future, you'll just have to try singing in one of our portable restrooms.

Keep in mind, you can rent Johnny On The Spot portable restrooms for any occasion. Although karaoke is not actually permitted in our portable restrooms, they are perfect for big parties and outdoor events. Celebrity Restrooms and Luxury Restroom Trailers are especially good for special events. We'll even send someone out to give you a free consultation if you're not quite sure what it is you're going to need.

We also carry barricade fencing for special events, which works wonders to help keep larger events better contained while ensuring public safety. It's perfect for crowd control at larger events like road races, carnivals and concerts.

Portable restroom singing sounds like a good time, and if you really would like to give it a go, we suggest you try belting out some tunes in our Celebrity Restroom. Just make believe you're Kanye West or Jay-Z rapping, "Watch the Portable Throne." Get it?

OK, that was a pretty terrible joke, but its not too farfetched considering the amenities that Johnny On The Spot Celebrity Restrooms come equipped with. Each one has a welcome mat and artificial flowers to make you feel like a VIP at any event. They come with perfumed fragrances and coat hooks to make your experience much more enjoyable.

While we do not allow doing actual karaoke in one of our portable restrooms, singing a tune to yourself is completely legitimate in our book . If you want to do real portaoke, you'll have to catch up with the Tour De Fat. To give you an idea of what you should expect once you get there, check out this gem.

Portable Restrooms for Back to School Events

September 9th, 2014

The beginning of a new school year is an exciting, yet challenging for not only students and parents, but also teachers and faculty. On top of the traditional workload, school administration also needs to prepare for the countless extracurricular activities, from after-school events and pep rallies to outdoor autumn festivities and sporting events. Planning each of these events can be a lot to deal with, and finding the right sanitation company can help make your fall planning easier. No matter the occasion, Johnny On The Spot can offer assistance in multiple areas.

Portable Restrooms

Portable restrooms are one of those things that nobody notices until something goes wrong. Don't overlook this crucial element of your back-to-school or fall events. Every outdoor event could be improved by quality, sanitary portable restrooms. When you are planning your school's next big outdoor event, call in the experts at Johnny On The Spot to help ensure your event goes off without a hitch.

By choosing from the many well-appointed portable bathrooms from Johnny On The Spot, such as the Deluxe or the Celebrity, your outdoor event will be fully equipped with all of the sanitation amenities that it requires. We can even save you the need to open up the school after hours by providing complete restroom facilities.

Additionally, you can avoid extra janitorial cleanup services by taking advantage of Johnny On The Spot's portable restrooms. Thanks to our services, school janitorial staff doesn't have to worry about any additional messes. We'll pick up the portable restrooms after your event is over, taking one more thing off your staff's plate.

Barricade Fencing

Many outdoor events require some sort of temporary barricade fencing. Barricade fencing helps to keep your outdoor school events organized and maintain safety. With students running around outside it's always nice to have a helping hand. Johnny On The Spot provides quality barricade fencing for events of all kinds and sizes.

Barricade fencing has the potential to be pretty useful. For instance, at school festivals and similar events, barricade fencing can be used to create order with neat lines. It also helps organize parking lots in case you need to section off parking for teachers, visiting schools, special guests or other employees during big events.

If you are in charge of organizing your school's festivities, be sure to contact Johnny On The Spot. Safety is one of the most important issues facing schools today. It can be extremely tough to organize a fun event without the necessary equipment, but a simple, smart addition like barricade fencing can greatly improve not only the safety and security of your event, but enhance students' actual enjoyment.

Make the smart choice and contact us for a free on-site consultation. If you're unsure of how many portable bathrooms or how much fencing you might need, the knowledgeable employees at Johnny On The Spot will help determine exactly what your school needs and make sure your fall events are a success.

Porta Potty Pilot Program Launched in San Francisco

August 25th, 2014

Porta Potties do a lot of good in the world; we all know this to be true, especially at Johnny On The Spot. We provide top of the line portable toilets for every kind of situation. But sometimes even we take for granted the convenience of portable toilets in everyday life. Unfortunately not everyone has the resources available for convenient portable sanitation.

In one San Francisco neighborhood, the lack of public facilities for the homeless was especially noticeable. But after some complaints regarding animal, and yes human, waste issues in the neighborhood of Tenderloin in San Francisco, the city got to work on a solution. The answer they came up with is simple, but exactly what we at Johnny On The Spot would recommend for any city dealing with similar issues. Now, as part of a pilot program, the neighborhood will be supplied with porta potties to assist the homeless and keep the streets clean.

"Definitely need them, it is hard to find a place to use the restroom down here, but the past just shows us that what they are used for is doing drugs and whatever and they just don't seem to work. The concept doesn't work with the population," Tenderloin maintenance worker Mike French told ABC7News.com.

"We'll have someone there all the time whether operational. We hope that can really help. We're going to have posted rules. We know there are going to be challenges. If we have to pivot and do something differently we will. This is a pilot project for six months. We know that there are problems there and we have to do something. We cannot do nothing anymore," Public Works spokesperson Rachel Gordon said in the same article by ABC 7.

It truly is nice to hear about a plan involving porta potties coming together. Even though you might not realize it, porta potties are at the heart of your community. The next time you’re driving through your community, take a minute to look around. You’ll see porta potties without too much trouble. It’s important we don’t take portable sanitation for granted.
