1. What are the benefits of renting uniforms?

2. What should I do if my uniform becomes damaged or goes missing?

Every time your uniforms are sent to be laundered they will be thoroughly inspected to check if there are any damages to the garments. If you know ahead of time your uniform is damaged, you can attach a repair request tag to the item. Any garment with a repair request tag gets immediate attention and repair.

If one day you find yourself missing a uniform, you should first notify your route representative. He or she will then arrange to have the item replaced on your next scheduled delivery

3. How does laundry fit into rental programs?

Laundry services are included in rental programs, removing the worry of either managing on-site laundry or asking employees to launder their garments themselves. This can be risky, as employees may do a poor job cleaning their uniforms which can affect your company’s image. Rental programs ensure your staff always looks their best.

4. Will I save money by using a uniform rental service?

According to government statistics, an employee who is in charge of laundering his/her own uniform spends an average of $15 a week compared to $30 a week if the employee uses a laundry service.

It is also important to note a uniform rental service typically has minimal to no up-front costs, and only costs about $6 per week per employee. However, this number can vary depending on the quality of uniforms you choose and the amount you order.

5. What if I want to change the look of my uniform?
