About Kniftons Mobile Toilets

Kniftons Mobile Toilets is a family business established in 1988 by brothers Charles and James and sister Sally, who set up the business following the purchase of their first small toilet unit to hire out to local events organisers. However we’ve grown considerably since this time, and now have an extensive fleet of bespoke luxury toilet units, shower units and single festival style toilets.

It is Charles and James who work together manufacturing new luxury toilet units to add to the fleet every year. This tends to be during the winter time, when the events work is much quieter. They also continually strive to maintain the entire fleet which ensures that your unit will arrive in superb, clean condition, inside and out.

The majority of our deliveries are undertaken by either Charles or James, with a couple of regular peak summer drivers helping out during busy periods. Be assured, that whoever delivers your unit will be highly experienced to advise on placement of the unit, and to ensure that it is in perfect order ready for your event.


Sally is office based, and runs her successful accounting business from home in Chesterfield. She is still a key member of the team, dealing with the financial accounts for both Kniftons Mobile Toilets, and the family arable & potato farm too.

Kniftons’ are now the biggest supplier of mobile toilet units in Derbyshire, and typical events include large corporate functions and shows providing toilets for up to 10,000 people, as well as on a smaller scale for family parties and weddings.

We are very much a family run business, with a real dedication to excellent service. You don’t need to take our word for it, take a look at what our customers have to say.
