5 tips to consider when switching your uniform rental company

Are you dissatisfied with the level of service and attention you receive from your current uniform rental company? Unsure if you’re getting the value that you deserve?  If you’re ready for a more reliable, cost-effective uniform rental program that doesn’t compromise on quality, service, or your budget, then it’s time for a change.

Switching to a different uniform rental company can be a strategic move for businesses looking to optimize their operations, reduce costs, and create a unified brand identity. If you feel overlooked, switch to a uniform service provider dedicated to meeting your needs.

The best part? It is easier than you think. By partnering with the right company, you can seamlessly transition and start transforming your business right away.

Discover the ease of switching uniform service providers with these five essential tips:

1. Maximize cost reductions with transparent pricing

Don’t overlook the potential cost savings of a new uniform service and supply company. Find a provider that offers competitive prices and transparent billing. Ask about volume discounts and other incentives, and make sure to inquire about any associated fees or setup costs.

Even small pricing discrepancies can add up over time. By consolidating your procurement with one supplier, you’ll have more negotiating power and greater control over costs. At UniFirst, we offer transparent pricing without any tricks or hidden fees.

You can rest easy with our no cost, no obligation VIP Cost Analysis Program®. We’ll take a close look at your overall spend and identify opportunities to reduce your total cost of ownership and boost your service levels.

2. Expect exceptional service

When it comes to choosing an alternative uniform rental company, customer service should be a top priority. Select a local uniform rental company near you who can always deliver exceptional customer service every step of the way from installation to delivery.

With our exclusive Triple Pro Service, you’ll benefit from having three local service professionals dedicated to keeping your uniform program running smoothly. You can expect fast and efficient communication for any questions or concerns. We ensure easy program installation, whether transitioning from your current uniform supplier or beginning a brand-new program.

3. Prioritize Quality

Don’t settle for subpar uniforms that can hurt your brand image and compromise safety. Pay close attention to the materials and construction of your team’s uniforms. Choose a uniform supplier who can provide readily available, high-quality uniforms designed to withstand the rigors of your workplace and ensure the longevity of the garment.

Crafted in our own ISO-9001 manufacturing facilities, our exclusive work apparel meets the highest standards of quality. We have complete control over garment quality, costs, and availability. This means you’ll never have to worry about facing uniform shortages again.

Plus, our automatic repair and replacement services keep your team protected and professional.

4. Streamline Inventory Management

Eliminate the hassles of monitoring and restocking inventory. Your provider should make it easy to manage your uniform program and your facilities.

UniFirst ensures you get the uniforms and facility service products you need when you need them. We’ll streamline your procurement process and reduce spending while effectively managing your inventory. This allows your employees to focus more on serving your customers.

5. Look for custom uniforms that fit the way you work

Choose a uniform rental company who can create a cohesive brand image for your business with custom embroidery or emblems. This will help you create a unified look across all of your employees and can help you stand out from the competition.

Our advanced technologies for creating customizable logos can also help ensure that no matter what environment they’re in, your employees will be easily spotted. Customized uniforms are also an investment in employee morale, as they give your employees something to be proud of when they walk through the door.

Safety and comfort are other important factors when choosing the right uniforms for your staff. We offer a range of protective clothing, like high visibility shirts and pants and flame-resistant shirts and pants that can help keep your team safe on the job. Our uniforms come with features like adjustable waists and breathable materials that help keep employees comfortable throughout their shift.
