When searching for the best uniform rental company for your business, you may have asked yourself whether to choose a national company or a local uniform provider.
When choosing any vendor, it’s often better to choose a local company near you rather than far away. This way you have assistance close by when you need it.
Clean Rental Washes Away the Competition
While initial searches may lead you to large multi-service providers, it’s often the more localized uniform companies that are willing to fit their programs to your business’ unique needs.
So how do more localized uniform service companies like Clean Rental stack up against national multi-service providers?
Here are 5 things to look for when deciding on a local uniform rental company.
- Upfront Set Pricing
- Long-Term Program Costs
- Uniform Selection & Program Customization
- Uniform Quality Depreciation
- Dedicated Client Service Teams
1. Upfront Set Pricing
Be aware of hidden fees and what exactly your vendor is charging you for.
Many uniform service providers tack on extra fees for weekly garment repairs and replacements.
Clean Rental offers upfront set pricing, so you know what to expect. We even include our Red Tag program, which covers the cost of uniform maintenance and guarantees the integrity of your uniforms every week.
2. Long-Term Program Costs
A contract standard for most multi-service providers allows the vendor to raise prices ~6% annually and between invoices whenever they see fit.
If you’re currently in a contract, you may have already experienced this.
Clean Rental’s mission is to provide seamless rental programs that make uniforms simple for your business.
That means straightforward contracts with no surprise price hikes.
3. Uniform Selection & Program Customization
It’s not uncommon for uniform rental companies to push certain uniform solutions as the right fit for your company even though they don’t suit your needs.
That’s simply because it’s cheaper for your provider to give all clients a similar workwear solution.
At Clean Rental, we understand people want more than the basic blues and that all companies have their own unique needs.
4. Uniform Quality Depreciation
While some uniform providers think it’s OK to return uniforms in less than new or like-new condition, Clean Rental replaces anything that is less than grade A.
We created the easiest and most efficient repair process in the industry, the Red Tag program.
If your uniform is less than perfect, tag it and we’ll mend it like-new again or replace it at no additional cost to your plan.
Other vendors try to get more than four years out of their uniforms. Every uniform Clean Rental provides will be as good as the first one issued. That’s our guarantee.
5. Dedicated Client Service Teams
A common complaint that clients have with multi-service providers is the lack of quality and consistent professional support.
We believe our onsite service should be as impeccable as your uniforms. We make a strong effort to hire great people, noncommissioned drivers with years of industry experience—true professionals with the knowledge, authority, and time to get things done.
No upselling or cross-selling. No unnecessary pressure. Just professional uniform service at its best.
