What is a movie theater without projectors? What is a salon without hairdressers? What is a gym without exercise equipment? As the owner of a laundromat, you surely know how precious your laundry machines and dryers are. Without them, your business plan would fall to pieces. In fact, if even one machine is out of order, your revenue could plummet. In addition to reliable equipment and competitive business management, laundry repair services should be one of your top concerns. If you want your laundromat to succeed, you will need to recognize the necessity of excellent repair services, purchase quality equipment, and secure a dependable distributor.
Laundry Repair Services
Self-service laundry businesses tend to be more stable than other industries, because even when the economy is struggling, consumers won’t sacrifice the cleanliness of their clothes. However, one of the great difficulties of owning a laundromat—one of the great difficulties of owning any small business, really—is that many significant factors are out of your control. Although you can’t command every aspect of your laundry service, you should always work to make sure that all of your equipment is in working order all of the time. Is it possible that your washers and dryers will be in working condition 24/7? Of course not. However, you should always be working toward this unattainable (but still constructive) goal.
How do you do this?
- Complete and keep track of regular maintenance
- Replace outdated equipment
- Carefully research new equipment before purchasing, focusing on reliability and longevity
- Respond to equipment problems and breakdowns ASAP
Finally, the simplest way to bring down the number of breakdowns in your laundromat is to secure a reputable distributor. Your distributor should act as a partner, assisting with laundry design, offering competitive analysis, answering any questions you have, and (of course) providing you with factory-trained service technicians and post-sales support. So not only is it important to choose an experienced and reliable distributor, but you should also remember to take full advantage of the services they offer.
As you compare potential distributors, keeping in mind laundry repair services, look for the following beneficial products and services:
- Long-lasting equipment that will rarely break down
- Maintenance services and post-sales support
- Factory-trained service technicians located near you
- Quick access to frequently needed parts on a service van
- Warehouse with genuine parts, allowing for immediate replacement service
Although you could find a basic laundry repair technician, why not secure the all-in-one support of a distributor?
