About Us

Beginning life over 60 years ago as a plumbing and drainage company the Dakins Group is a family owned and operated company that has expanded over the years to meet the ever-evolving needs of the community we serve.

We’ve constantly been developing our skills, knowledge and resources to become the South Island’s leading supplier of portable toilets and showers, with our range of products and volume of stock giving us an unmatched ability to handle everything from weddings and parties to major public events to meeting the needs of busy construction sites.

A family-oriented company, our success can be attributed to the people who work for us. Our team of passionate professionals truly care about our work, and take part in regular training to ensure our service consistently exceeds expectations.

We’re immensely proud of our heritage. We’re actively involved in Christchurch’s recovering following the earthquakes, with our port-a-loo and waste disposal services proving vital as the city struggled through the weeks immediately following the disaster. Dakins remain committed to the region, while our Dunedin branch ensures we can reach and service all areas of the South Island.
