SERVICE is the key word in describing United Site Services. We have appreciated their attention to detail in working with us for the planning of our event, the Denver Marathon, and especially for their services provided on race day.

Got a hold of me right away, listened to what I needed and got me what I needed. Understood my budget and got me the toilets at a very reasonable price. The staff in the San Jose office were very nice and easy to deal with.

The Port-a-potty was clean and was the hit of the party which was themed “Under Construction.” The delivery was on time and the people I made contact with (including the delivery guy) were very professional. I would definitely call them again should I need a porta-potty.

We would like to thank you for your services at this year’s Preakness Stakes.
Your equipment that you provided was clean, up to date and well stocked. Everything arrived on time and was set up with no problem and to specification.

For the last four years, I have been the Vice President of Operations and Development at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. During that time we have contracted with United Site Services, Inc. as our provider for hundreds of portable toilets at each event, multiple VIP toilet trailers, pumping of thousands of onsite customer campers and the removal of roughly 100,000 gallons of septic prior to the beginning of each event.
Our relationship with the local United Site Services personnel is a large part of the success of these events, as everyone from the Regional VP to the guys on the pump trucks roll up their sleeves and work for a week straight to make sure sewage is NOT one of the problems at NHMS, regardless of the weather.

This featured the U.S. Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron the Blue Angels, the U.S. Army’s Golden Knights, the U.S. Air Force F-16 East Coast Demonstration Team and many exciting daredevil civilian performers.
You provided highly valuable support that contributed to the safe and secure environment, so more than 111,000 guests could enjoy this fantastic, thrilling air show. Your steadfast commitment and genuine willingness to go the extra mile made the Air Expo ’09 a resounding success and were deeply appreciated. Congratulations with pleasure for a job WELL DONE!
Andrew M., Patuxent River, MD
They were here when they said they would be here, they were friendly and very helpful. Since we are a small town, I had called several other companies and all of them hesitated and didn’t want to come out here, but United never acted like our project was too small or hard to find. They were very professional and treated us the same as if we were a large company or project. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you United Site Services.

I attended the Niles Antique Fair this past weekend, where I did a Boy Scout fundraiser operating a parking lot. I cannot tell you how often we were complimented on the quality of your portables placed in our parking lot. Our Boy Scouts also appreciated the comfort you provided. And that is coming from some well seasoned scouts and adults. Your company does a great job with a service most people would like to forget.
