Also known as vacuum trucks, pumper trucks are large trucks with mounted tanks for waste removal and fresh water supply. The tanks can hold several hundred gallons of waste and water. There also is usually space to haul two standard units on the back. Most portable sanitation businesses have at least one of these trucks.
Key Benefit: Large-scale pumping capabilities
Pickup Trucks with Vacuum Units
A compact alternative option to a “big rig” pumper is a pickup truck equipped with a vacuum unit, commonly referred to as a “slide-in” tank. The portable vacuum unit is mounted to the back of the pickup truck and used for waste collection and fresh water distribution. These trucks are ideal for the business owner on a budget or a startup with a smaller customer base.
Key Benefit: Lower cost
Portable restroom rental businesses with dozens or even hundreds of units can benefit from using a flatbed truck for transportation. They can haul multiple units for large-scale events. Plus, you can get trucks equipped with a vacuum pump so you can perform service.
