Tips for Switching to a New Uniform Service

Tips for Switching to a New Uniform Service

Swapping to a new uniform service that you already have is a bit more challenging.

Uniforms are an essential part of all types of businesses. They communicate to customers who your employees are so they are easily recognizable, they boost your efficiency and encourage feelings of camaraderie for your employees while also extending and advertising your brand. While you decide to work with a uniform provider it’s usually a no-brainer for its different benefits, swapping to a new uniform service that you already have is a bit more challenging. Read on for a few things to consider as you make your decision!

Make a Cons and Pros List

Changing your uniform provider might mean changing your uniform in a few ways. If you are thinking about changing, there has to be some reason. Sit down and create a list of everything that works well and that you like about your existing uniforms and the service that provides them, and everything that doesn’t. Consider how the uniform fits within your brand and the ambiance of your business. Consider how the service meets your needs and provides benefits for your staff. Take time to discuss with your team members about their feelings and thoughts. Do not approach the process of finding a new uniform service without having a clear idea of what it is you want.

Get Various, Detailed Quotes

Once you have these lists done, research all of your vendors and find at least three that you’d like to get quotes from. Give them all of the information you’ve compiled about your uniform needs and ask them for suggestions for your uniforms from their own offerings. If their suggestions include any sale items, be careful, as those might go out of stock and not be reordered. You do not want to have to change your uniforms again because what you settled on now is not available in a year or so.

Get Work Samples

Getting some sample uniforms from potential uniform providers will be a bit expensive but a worthwhile purchase, as many uniform companies will charge for any samples you do not return or that get laundered. Laundering the sample uniform should be a part of your decision process, too, since it is important to know how they’ll look after any repeated washings.

Review and Rate Your Options

Include the staff in the testing of the uniforms and compile all of their feedback about the different options before you make a decision. Rank and rate the potential uniform providers based on the durability and comfortability of their samples, how knowledgeable and helpful they were, and the costs too.
