Perry Court Primary SchoolWe're Utility Rentals and you're in safe hands
“We chose to have Mitsubishi Jet Towel hand dryers in the student washrooms to cut down on waste and mess, along with saving on the cost of resources. We chose to proceed with Utility Rentals as their pricing was competitive, but also because of their brilliant customer service and seamless planning and paperwork.”

Perry Court Primary School
Perry Court Primary School in Hengrove, Bristol aim ‘to deliver an exciting curriculum, enriched by visits and visitors, which is broad and balanced, develops basic skills and enables every child to reach their true potential.’ It is important for the school to offer extensive facilities to support this, in order to provide students with the best possible learning environment.
However staff at Perry Court Primary School take pride in all areas of the school and are conscious about the impact they have on the environment. Consequently, Deborah Stephens, Business Manager at Perry Court Primary School decided to consider changing the hand drying facilities in their washrooms.
Previously the student washrooms were fitted with paper towel dispensers, but like many other schools, Perry Court Primary School believed this was no longer the most suitable option. We all know that paper towels are not only bad for the environment, but are expensive to purchase and are also in need of re-stocking regularly, which can be extremely time consuming for staff.
Subsequently, schools like Perry Court Primary School are looking to upgrade to low energy, ultra efficient hand dryers, like the Mitsubishi Jet Towel.
Deborah explains, “We chose to have Mitsubishi Jet Towel hand dryers in the student washrooms to cut down on waste and mess, along with saving on the cost of resources. However the cost of purchasing several hand dryers outright proved to be preventative. After searching the internet for alternative options, I came across Utility Rentals. We chose to proceed with Utility Rentals as their pricing was competitive, but also because of their brilliant customer service and seamless planning and paperwork.”
Utility Rentals offer a wide variety of hand dryers by way of their flexible and affordable rental contracts. By renting, schools can spread the cost of equipment over several years, enabling them to acquire the equipment they need, without having to compromise on quality or quantity.
Deborah explained, “The team at Utility Rentals were great and only suggested hand dryers which met our requirements. The noise level of the hand dryer was crucial, as the washrooms are positioned next to classrooms and to disturb teaching would have been critical. However Utility Rentals arranged for us to trial the units so we could test this before deciding to go ahead.”
Deborah went on to say, “The cost of having the necessary fused spurs was also proving to be too expensive for us to pay for upfront. So when Utility Rentals gave us the option of including the cost of an electrician to fit the spurs in the rental contract, it was an amazing bonus for me! As a part time Business Manager, this also saved me an awful lot of work. We are extremely pleased with our hand dryers; the students love them and the school is looking tidier too!”
