New to Work Uniform Rentals? What You Need to Know

If you're considering a work uniform rental service, you'll be faced with several options:

  • Local independent vs. national supplier
  • Customized vs. cookie-cutter program
  • Several options that can impact both cost and cost justification

The purpose of this blog is to explain some of the pros and cons of each option and to understand the overall cost justification.

Local vs. Independent

The national suppliers are taking over the market by buying up many smaller independents. They tend to be process efficient and somewhat cheaper (at least initially), just don't ask for any customization or flexibility and high employee turnover doesn't help – and many of their customers feel like they get nickled and dimed when they see invoice spikes due to costs hidden in their contract's fine print.
