Gotta Go Now Featured in PRO Monthly Online Magazine

The fastest growing Portable Restroom rental company in Washington DC has been featured in the April 2015 edition of PRO magazine.

Gotta Go Now’s Fred Hill conquers challenges to build a fast-growing business in the nation’s capital.


Vast experience in the construction industry – as a general contractor, home inspector and income property investor – may have played an important role in Fred Hill’s success in the portable restroom business. Hill’s Washington, D.C., portable sanitation company, Gotta Go Now, has quadrupled revenue every year since startup in 2006.

“It’s all predicated on service,” says Hill, 51. “That’s what keeps them calling.” Part of the success – even throughout the past recession – may be attributed to his paying close attention when he worked in the construction field. He knew what he wanted in portable restrooms, and he knew what wasn’t being offered. So his solution was to enter the industry himself.

After starting modestly with 175 restroom units (mostly Satellite Industries Tufways), he now has almost 500 units, most yellow Poly Portables Integra models. “All the customers are loving them,” Hill says. “They like the brightness of them.”

Hill says demand has shown the potential for continued growth. “My goal is to have 1,000 units,” he says. “I’m always optimistic and have always dreamed about getting to the 1,000 units. That’s the drive that has kept me going.”

Hill has added a three-unit trailer by Comforts of Home and an eight-unit trailer he built himself. And the company started renting child-sized TJ-Shorty units from T.S.F. Company Inc.; he has 10 units he refers to as the Pint Size Potties division, which was his wife Renita’s idea. The units go to Little League games, kids’ birthday parties and other events.

Cardboard trash containers Hill bought from Party Time Tents & More Inc. at a past Pumper & Cleaner Environmental Expo have been a popular add-on for special event customers who like the convenience of hiring Gotta Go Now to haul away trash. The company has 500 of the containers.
