UTILITY COSTS ARE RISING
Though gas prices have fallen in many places, water and sewer costs have increased significantly in the past decade. If your laundromat utility costs have risen substantially, new commercial laundry machines could considerably lower your water and gas bills. In fact, new Maytag Commercial Laundry washers use up to 31% less water than our previous models.1

MACHINE DOWNTIME IS INCREASING
If you find yourself spending more time each week maintaining or fixing machines or waiting on service calls, it’s likely time to replace some of your equipment. Even if you’re not actively tracking what downtime is costing you, we can help you see how an investment in new machines has the potential to provide a return greater than continuously repairing old ones.
VEND PRICES HAVEN’T CHANGED
It’s hard to raise vend prices on existing aging equipment without scaring away customers. With newer, programmable machines, you can adjust pricing for time of day, charge for cycle modifiers or offer alternative payment methods. Research shows that customers are willing to pay up to 20% more for using new equipment.2

COMPETITION IS TAKING CUSTOMERS
Laundromats tend to draw customers from within two or three miles. If a new store has opened in your area or an old store has undergone an upgrade, you’re at risk for losing customers who prefer the allure of the nearby new equipment. We can work with you to develop a replacement strategy that keeps your laundromat the one that customers in your area keep coming to.
