4 Common Questions about Renting Employee Uniforms

When you have never rented employee uniforms before, you’re bound to have many questions. Luckily, we’ve highlighted some of the most common.

What Are Some Benefits?

We’re glad you asked! No introduction to uniform rental is complete without an overview of the benefits. When you rent your employee uniforms, part of the program covers repairs and replacements for damaged uniforms that are torn or have become completely unwearable. You won’t have to worry about uniforms driving up your inventory costs, or waste time figuring out how to store spare uniforms.

What about Uniform Damage?

You’ll always be worrying about uniform damage. This is especially prevalent in industries where your employees have to work with power tools, sharp knives, or fire. However, each time the rent uniforms are sent off for laundry time, they will be examined to ensure there are no signs of damage. However, it’s also possible to use a special tag to indicate the uniforms that are more heavily damaged than their fellows. The uniforms with repair request tags will be focused on right away. It’s also plausible that your uniforms will go missing somewhere along the way. When this happens, you need to get in touch with whoever picked up the uniforms, and replacements will be added to the next shipment of uniforms that you get.

How Does Laundry Work?

Another component of the uniform rental program deals with laundry services. This means that you won’t have to take time out of your busy schedules to make sure that your uniforms are properly cleaned and mended, and that your employees won’t be held responsible for the same, especially if you are asking them to pay out of pocket or take money from their paychecks to help cover the costs of renting and maintaining the uniforms they need to wear.

Can I Change My Uniform?

This is one of the most common questions about any uniform rental program. Uniform policies often go beyond how employees and staff should wear their uniforms – and when they need to wear them at all. It is possible to change the look and feel of the uniform. You just need to get in touch with your partner or provider and fill out the proper paperwork requesting the changes. Doing this could cause your rentals to go down, or to go up – it depends on what you asked for!
