The Chicago Uniform Company Offers Uniforms for Rental, Lease or Purchase

Jim Buik - Friday, July 25, 2014

One of the Roscoe uniform rental company’s first slogans in its long history was "Why Buy, We Supply." That still certainly rings true today.

With a uniform rental service, Roscoe purchases garments which means your business does not have to make any initial investments. The uniform company offers traditional, premium workwear, casual and executive, flame-resistant, high and enhanced visibility and anti-static uniforms. We also provide market-specific uniforms including HACCP compliance for food service, healthcare, electronics, NFPA 70E and ANSI compliant. Once a garment type(s) is selected we personalize the uniforms through emblems and/or direct embroidery. You can focus on your business because the uniform rental company takes care of the rest including:

  • Pick-up and delivery
  • Cleaning
  • Repair
  • Inspection
  • Replacement
  • Measuring
  • Size changes
  • Wearer communications
  • Inventory maintenance
  • Locker storage system
  • Garment ordering
  • Tracking
  • Shipping and receiving

This service is extremely useful for companies with high employee turnover and constant new hires.

The Uniform Rental Company has Options to Lease & Purchase Garments

If you decide that rental is not what your company needs, the uniform company also offers a leasing program option. The difference is that your employees launder their own garments and are charged with inspecting garments. While there is less inventory and a reduced cost, employees receive less of a benefit and you will have less control on your brand image. Roscoe is still very much involved as far as garment repairs, size changes, upgrades, ordering, measuring and other needs you or your employees may require.

The third option is to purchase and the Chicago uniform company has very little involvement. You buy and manage the program including ordering, distributing and storing within your organization. We supply and personalize the garments, but you and your employees are in charge of all other aspects of the program.

Contact a Roscoe Representative to Find Out More About Your Options

Without lengthy experience in laundering and uniform maintenance, like the uniform rental company, it can become cumbersome to try to manage an image program in addition to your core business. Furthermore, we are dedicated to laundering in the most responsible and sustainable manner and home-washing adds up to more energy and water usage. Contact the Chicago uniform rental company today to find out which program best fits your needs and choose to be sustainable.

Take Pride!
