Top 10 Reasons to Use a Work Uniform Rental Program

Work Uniform Rental Program: Top 10 Reasons | Roscoe Chicago

A work uniform rental program makes sense for a lot of reasons. Based on our 95 years of experience, here are the Top 10:

1. No Upfront Investment

With a work uniform rental program, we purchase uniforms needed to service our customers and as garments need replaced, we also make that investment. When establishing a rental program with a new customer, we also absorb the cost to embellish uniforms with emblems – both employee's name and company logo.

2. Uniforms are Cleaned & Well Maintained

Every week, your Route Service Representative will pick up soiled uniforms for cleaning, repair and replacement. They will also deliver clean uniforms that we picked up soiled the previous week. We use wash formulas that are specific to the garments laundered and the types of soil they contain to make sure they are delivered back to our customers clean and pristine.

3. Company Image

A team in clean, finished uniforms presents a professional image, especially when adorned with your company logo. Repeated exposure to your company logo when worn on a clean, well-maintained uniform helps with branding efforts.

4. Customer Confidence

When in uniform with a company logo affixed, it's easy for customers and prospects to identify the company that somebody works for. In fact, research shows that consumers have more confidence when interacting with an employee in uniform than those not in uniform. Departments, work areas and/or functions can also be differentiated with a variety of colors and styles of uniforms to choose from.

5. Safety

Our rental garments are manufactured to withstand industrial use and cleaning. They are also manufactured for comfort and function. Our professional sizing team measures each individual for proper fit. We also offer a broad line of protective clothing to include high visibility and flame resistant garments.

6. Convenience

Not having to purchase, launder and repair work clothing is certainly a benefit for employees, but we also manage the program with minimal involvement by companies utilizing our service.

7. Employee Morale

Employees love not having to deal with work cloths and certainly see it as a benefit of employment if funded or co-funded by their company. This has a positive effect on employee morale and everybody feels like they are part of a team when in uniform with a company logo.

8. Focus on Core Business

With Roscoe managing the uniform program, both employees and the company can focus on their core business. We're hired to manage not only the uniform program for your company, but also the image your workforce presents.

9. Cost Savings

For approximately the same cost as a daily cup of coffee, an employee can be outfitted in a clean uniform every day.

10. Sustainability

We use far less natural resources in our laundering and finishing processes than when work clothes are laundered at home. Uniform rental programs make sense for all the reasons listed above and it is also the environmental right choice.

Next Steps

Roscoe clients also appreciate that they get the local customer service you'd expect from a family-owned business, combined with the ISO 9001:2008 process quality that you'd expect of tenured professionals. We also offer a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from with our rental program: everything for the back of the house work uniforms to the front offices with casual business and executive apparel.
