cover risks specific to their industry. Worker’s Compensation Insurance Employment laws require contractors to provide worker’s compensation coverage. This insurance pays for medical costs when employees are injured on the job. The premiums are based on the type of job the employee does and the risks involved in the occupation. Office workers are less at risk than employees working in confined spaces or on excavation projects. Automotive and Truck Insurance Automobiles, trucks, and construction equipment are vital assets to septic, sewer, and portable restroom contractors and need to be protected by auto or vehicle insurance. This coverage includes accident damage caused by other vehicles, comprehensive damage when other vehicles are not involved, and medical payments. Pollution Liability Septic and sewer contractors deal with hazardous and toxic waste and other chemicals that damage the environment if spilled. When doing remediation or clean-up work, septic contractors often remove or replace inground tanks. If those tanks leak, the

Defending against these lawsuits is costly, and if contractors do not have specific coverage, they may find themselves responsible for legal costs, fines, and other expenses. Portable restroom contractors may spill waste during clean-out operations, leaving them at risk of liability. Pollution and pollution transportation policies provide additional coverage in case of a rare spill or waste leakage event. CONCLUSION Specialty contractors have unique job-related risks and require specialized insurance to protect their businesses from these risks. Sewer, septic, and portable restroom contractors need to consider the risks in their industries and protect their financial and business operations with adequate insurance. Contractors with only standard umbrella policies may leave themselves exposed to substantial costs, legal fees, and fines.

Likely the youngest member of the team, Giles Ray, manages scheduling and delivery. He has a bachelor’s degree in geology, which makes him uniquely qualified

to advise Royal Restrooms on the placement and installation of permanent and semi-permanent assets. Daniel Baker might be called the strong man of the team. He manages teams delivering the weekly pumping service for rental restroom facility customers. He is also in charge of maintaining the company’s fleet of trailers and vehicles. The general manager, Ross Dorn, is the newest member of the Royal Restrooms family. He is responsible for sales, financial operations, and marketing. He also has a wealth of real estate knowledge and experience, which makes him very adept in this role. Finally, we come to the senior manager and coowner, Gregor Miller. Gregor brings over 40 years of experience to the business with many years of real estate knowledge and a bachelor's from the University of Washington. THE ADVANTAGES OF REAL ESTATE EXPERIENCE IN PORTABLE RESTROOM RENTALS As Gregor and Ray explain, any good real estate investor worth his salt can easily tell you how the crossover of real estate experience and top-quality bathroom trailer continued on page 28

...it’s necessary to be able to spend time on the site, survey the land, assess the property, consult with architects and engineers, as well as other contractors and professionals. rentals can be a wonderful asset. For a start, real estate development and property investing are rarely a sure-fire thing. Everyone involved in the transaction has to weigh the pros and cons of the deal carefully. At the end of the day, few major land and property transactions are completed without winners and losers. For those looking into putting a large sum of money down on a project, it’s necessary to be able to spend time on the site, survey the land, assess the property, consult with architects and engineers, as well as other contractors and professionals. In short, it means someone is going to have to use the facility. So it is much better to be able to remain on-site, weigh options carefully and make a well-informed decision. Even after contracts are signed and everyone involved knows where they stand, then it’s time for the construction teams to move in, and they’re going to benefit from convenient facilities as well. ROYAL RESTROOMS MOBILE BATHROOM RENTAL SERVICES With their unusual skill set, the Royal Restrooms team has made portable restroom rentals their specialty. They designed their portable restrooms to be the perfect match for their market niche. With brightly lit interiors, a stylish décor, large mirrors, full climate control with heating and cooling, and spacious countertops, as well as fully functional toilets, they are the perfect asset for longterm projects. continued on page 30

SPOTLIGHT

INDEX Royal Restrooms wanted to create facilities that are convenient and luxurious, but they also wanted to build a portable bathroom that would become a new standard in public health. With particular concern about public health issues stemming from the events of 2020 and 2021, Royal Restrooms wanted to create spacious toilet trailers. Why? Because with space comes a reduction in the likelihood of invading the privacy of others as well as the risk of cross-contamination. It’s a lesson the senior team has taken from their long real estate experience. Because they know that elbow room is the number one thing that separates a mediocre structure from a spectacular one. SERVING SEATTLE WA & VANCOUVER SINCE 2004 Perhaps the most interesting thing about Royal Restrooms is the fact that they didn’t get their start in septic maintenance. Rather, they have come to the portable restroom market via real estate. To date, they are the only such company we have reported on. It’s an excellent way to facilitate the making of big property deals. But, naturally, they do much more than this. Like any good portable restroom rental provider, they serve weddings, expos, concerts, and other public events with their high-quality restroom trailers with superior-grade-sanitation standards. Their trailers come in three formats, the Standard, Elite, and ADA Specialty trailers. Each grade represents a step up in quality and luxury. But more importantly, the ADA series trailers come with a level of sanitation that nearly rises to the level of medical grade cleanliness. Over the coming decade, we expect to see more restroom trailer rental companies like Royal Restrooms, but they will be remembered as pioneers. At a point in time when health and sanitation are more important than ever, Royal Restrooms is unambiguously equal to the role.

Wishing All Dads a

Happy Father’s Day

From Our Three-Generation, Father-Son Business

(From L-R) Ken, Ed & Mike Cooper

There’s something special about father-son businesses. We’re speaking from firsthand experience. PolyJohn has been a family-owned business since it was co-founded by Ed Cooper in 1984. Today, we’re led by Ed’s sons Mike (CEO & President) and Ken (Vice President). Mike’s sons Sam (Plant Manager) and Gus (Human Resources) represent the third generation.

Over the decades, we’ve seen countless operators beam with pride when their sons work in the family business and eventually take over ownership. We are proud of the business PolyJohn has become over three generations, and we work hard every day to help our customers experience the same feeling as they expand their businesses and reach new levels of success.
