If you have ever purchased a computing device, such as a tablet or a potable, then you would always be in a dilemma if you should purchase the full three year hardware warranty package or just get repairs done on need to know basis. Laundry service contracts are something like that. There are pros and cons of each approach. The comparisons between a portable and a commercial laundry equipment notwithstanding, the whole idea of looking at a service contract from the view finder of pros and cons is in itself a moot point.
This is because of the varied consequences and scenarios that exist in the commercial laundry service.
Things Go Wrong
When running a business, the worst thing that can and will happen is disruption of services. It is impossible for any company, even the world largest corporations to have a glitch free service delivery. This is because of the nature of life is that, things will always go wrong and there is nothing anyone can do about.
What is possible though, is to reduce the frequency with which things break down. Every time you have to experience an issue with a machine behaviour you are losing out on temporary business. In the long term, you are missing out on customer satisfaction too. Even a single instance of a machine giving up on a customer will make them think twice about coming back to you laundry service next time.
Contracts with laundry repair services give you tangible benefits and some intangible benefits as well. Intangible benefits like peace of mind is something which is worth a lot more than just more business. When you are consciously aware that you have like a servicing partner watching over your business equipment you can breathe easy.
Over time as you learn to rely more on your servicing partner, it is not difficult to imagine that a day will come when you stop worrying about your equipment being in good shape. This won’t be ignorance, rather, it is a natural evolution of confidence.
The peace of mind comes because of the way a contract works. In most scenarios, a contract will require an upfront payment. In return you get a heavy discount on most instances of labour services. In some cases, it may be free too. You also get to have a service representative visiting your premises regularly to check for repair symptoms. Common sense is enough to convince you that symptoms take less time as well as cost to fix.
