Factors to Consider When Selecting a Linen Rental Company
The linens your business uses play a key role in every day service you provide to clients. Because of this, you want your linens to be high quality, durable, and look presentable. As laundering them yourself can be a time-consuming and expensive process, outsourcing your linens through a linen supply company can save you a lot of time and money over the years but finding the right linen supply company can take time.
Consider these factors while carrying out your search:
1. Price & Quality. The quality of your linens directly reflects your brand and can have an impact on the overall feeling of your space. Always ask to see the linens the company offers that fall within your price range and ask as questions. Just because a thread count is high, doesn’t mean it’s the right quality or price for your brand.
2. Reputation. Ask other companies and people you know for linen rental recommendations and always read reviews online. Even if there are negative reviews about the company, look to see how they handled the situation before completely witing them off.
3. Customer Service. A company that has great customer service is going to be much more helpful when things go wrong or when you have any questions. Linen supply companies that have been in business for a long time have more experience and know how to handle a plethora of issues. New England Linen Supply has been in business for over 140 years! You won’t be disappointed in our customer service, that’s for sure.
4. Credentials. Anytime you are receiving services from anyone, you always want to ensure they are licensed and insured. This is especially important when it comes to the healthcare industry due to the lundry list of regulations put in place.
5. Pickup & Delivery. Depending on the industry you are in, the frequency of delivieries and pickups can varry. Check with the linen supply company about how often you can have soiled linens picked up and fresh, clean linens delivered. This will eliminate any headaches and stress.
