A Top-Rated Commercial Laundry Distributor Can Ensure Business Success

When you're starting your own commercial laundry business or operation, you don't have the luxury of a large staff to help you make decisions. You also can't afford to make mistakes. That's why it's important to determine who the best suppliers are and what services they provide to help you get off to a good start.

A reputable, full service laundry solutions provider can help you not only to determine which commercial laundry equipment will serve your needs at a price you can afford, it can help with much more: location (including demographic analysis, if applicable), laundry room design, technical considerations, utility and energy savings ideas and data, marketing support, and much more.

Vended and Coin-Op Laundromats

Guidance and support from an experienced laundry expert are particularly important for commercial coin operated or vended laundry businesses who must have a unique selling proposition—˜hook—that's going to attract customers away from the competition. These days, customers have come to expect clean, bright, and safe as well as standard amenities such as T.V., Wi-Fi, and more. But, it’s the quality of your commercial washers and dryers, and the customer experience that are going keep your customers coming back over time.

Optimize On-Premise Laundry Operations

Finding the right laundry equipment supplier is equally important for those operating or starting an on-premise laundry (OPL). A high quality, reputable distributor will help ensure the success of your operation by helping you choose the optimal mix of industrial laundry equipment as well as arranging favorable financing or leasing terms. A relationship with a top distributor will have a positive effect on your bottom line by helping you maximize machine performance and minimize operating costs.

Ask Commercial Laundry Experts for Referrals

How do you identify the best commercial laundry equipment and the best suppliers to serve your needs? First, ask around. You can ask for recommendations on online industry forums sponsored by industry trade groups, such as the Coin Laundry Association (CLA) or its southern California chapter (SoCalCLA). You can find leads in industry trade magazines, such as Planet Laundry or American Coin-Op or ask around in person: visit other laundry operations or potential competitors. Talk to operators, customers, and laundry technicians to find out, first hand, the good, the bad and the ugly about different lines of laundry equipment and their suppliers.

Contact laundry equipment manufacturers and find out who they recommend. And, of course, contact the laundry solutions suppliers directly and see what else you can learn. A reliable commercial laundry solutions partner should provide excellent customer service and sales support at every touchpoint.
