In this competitive market, hotels are looking to differentiate themselves from the mass of competitors. One of the best ways to do that is to offer services that help make guests feel like they are at home, except even better! Offering used laundry equipment is a great step toward impressing your customers and going above and beyond what the competition might do.
If you do not currently have a laundry on site and you wish to start one, there are plenty of obstacles that need to be overcome both in terms of equipment and in training. In terms of the equipment, the cost of new industrial equipment in addition to supply chain issues is a challenge for everyone right now, but R.W. Martin has the solution. This is the perfect time to set up your laundry with used laundry equipment.
The Advantages of Purchasing Used Industrial Laundry Equipment
There are four primary benefits in purchasing used industrial laundry equipment:
A significant cost savings
Not only is pre-owned laundry equipment for sale less expensive than new equipment, it is also a money saver because you can start to get to work right away. You do not need to wait for parts to arrive or for delivery. The equipment is there and ready for your team to install and use. Finally, purchasing used equipment can cut down on necessary training time if your employees already know how to use it.
Increased Quality Control
Although there are a lot of fine details that can seem overwhelming when starting a laundry for your guests, one thing you can be sure of is that you can control the quality of the laundry service being offered. Some managers will find this preferable to outsourcing the service and depending on another company to keep everything straight.
If you do not have to depend on pick-up and delivery of your laundry, you will be able to turn it around much faster. In hospitality, speed as well as quality is highly important, so offering laundry service that also gets the job done quickly will be another feather in your cap.
Fewer Lost Items
Finally, investing in high-quality pre-owned industrial laundry equipment from R.W. Martin will keep all of your guests’ laundry on site. This makes tracking down items much easier than if they were transported to another location. While everyone can suffer from a missing sock now and then, at least having an on-site laundry limits the geographic area in which that sock could be.
If you are managing a hotel and want to bring laundry services on site, you will have a lot of responsibilities on your plate. Let R.W. Martin makes the purchase of the actual industrial laundry equipment easier. Contact R.W Martin today to learn more.
