If multiple uniform vendors service your area, choosing the right one is a matter of determining who provides the uniform features you need. Most vendors appear the same, offering a catalog of uniforms, trucks to deliver them, and giant washers to keep them clean. Many of them offer services other than uniform rentals, from linens to facility service, food service, and more. When looking for a quality custom uniform vendor that can create a solution for your company’s unique needs, you should find a vendor with the following three qualities:
1. Expertise in Uniforms
Does the uniform vendor specialize in uniform rental only? Many large corporate uniform providers don’t specialize in just one area, putting attention towards other services like facility cleaning, selling supplies, and promotional products to name a few. When looking for a uniform provider, you want to work with a company that focuses on uniforms as their top priority. That’s what Clean Rental does. We understand the industry standards of food processing, chemical and safety, manufacturing, service, hospitality, and healthcare. We can also help you meet strict regulations such as:
- FDA - Food and Drug Administration
- USDA - United States Department of Agriculture
- HACCP - Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point
- OSHA - Occupational Safety and Health Administration
- EPA - Environmental Protection Agency
2. Extensive Customization Options
Does the company provide a rigid catalog of features, or can they provide a unique uniform design solution personalized specifically for your company? When getting into a contract with a uniform provider, you want a vendor who can fulfil your exact needs. Since contracts typically lock you into multi-year agreements, it’s important that your vendor can add to and further customize your uniforms as your company grows or needs change. Because uniforms are our specialty, Clean Rental has access to all of the top quality garment manufacturers, giving you an endless amount possibilities. We also hold our customization to a higher standard, taking on specialty orders other uniform vendors won’t touch. Need work pants with plastic zippers? We’ll remove the metal ones and replace them. Require added protection from fire hazards or chemicals? We provide the highest rated fire and chemical resistant garments. Want branding on every part of the uniform? We can do that. We don’t limit your choice of garments. Tell us what you need, and we’ll find a way to make it happen.
3. Employees with Expertise
Does the uniform vendor have a professional staff? It’s important to find a uniform vendor that has your best interests in mind, with employees that actually care about the customer. As a common practice in the uniform rental industry, sales reps both sell you the contract, deliver, and collect your uniforms week to week. They may come in trying to get papers signed or renew a contract. Clean Rental does things differently. Our drivers are drivers, and our sales reps are sales reps. We have people who clean uniforms and people who repair. Everyone has expertise in what they do. Our drivers see the same customers every week and build a relationship. They don't have to sell, and they don't have to collect money. All they need to do is take care of the customer, which makes it easy to let your uniform delivery professional know about any issues if you have them.
