Maintaining a well-stocked inventory of clean, undamaged portable sanitation equipment is necessary to reinforce your company’s brand image. Potential customers will be more willing to do business with you if they read positive reviews about the condition of your units. Your high standards and attention to detail will help keep existing customers on the books for future jobs, too.

Implementing a daily equipment maintenance routine and schedule for your yard crew will keep them on task and ensure every unit that is delivered to a customer is in the best possible condition. The infographic we created below details the sanitation equipment maintenance tasks your team can follow to keep your yard stocked with ready-to-deliver units.
