Portaloo Hire

Anne-marie N
in Wandsworth
Hi can anyone recommend a reasonably priced portaloo hire company. I'm having a BBQ next week & think an extra loo would be really helpful.
MM
I used Site Equip who were keenly priced, professional and helpful. It was for a longer period though (building project) and the type of loo was very basic. Probably not what I'd choose for a BBQ. That said, I believe they also rent smarter loos!

This is exactly the way that acupuncture should NOT be spreading. Perhaps it would be more useful to offer Doctoring in a day? Nursing in a day? Osteopathy or physiotherapy in a day? (Or weekend) A fully trained acupuncturist has four years ... [ more ]

Best Vietnamese is Mien Tay on Lavender Hill. Far outstrips Pho etc for authenticity, freshness of ingredients and price. For authentic Vietnamese it's the (sorry not that close to Herne Hill I know!)
