The domestic consumer, let’s be honest, has been getting off quite lightly after all these years. It has happened sometimes that their washing machine or dryer has broken down. But no matter. If they truly did not have the budget for a machine repair technician at the time of breakdown or had to wait forever and day before one could be found for them, they could always do some of their smaller clothing items by hand.
Or they could load them all up into their laundry bags and just drop it off at the laundry in the morning. And that would be that. Round about five later in the day after they had knocked off work, they could go and fetch their clean laundry, all washed, dried, neatly folded and packed and ready to be collected. But for the small business laundry operator, things were always going to get tough once one of their machines suddenly broke down.
Never mind the challenges of finding commercial laundry parts at short notice, they still had to locate a specialist technician to come and disengage and remove the worn-out parts and then install its replacements. Back in the day, you wonder how many specialist technicians or mechanics you could count on one hand. But today, all that has changed. The industry has grown substantially. And many more mechanically-minded artisans have applied their minds to this specialist trade.
The old saying is even more substantial these days. If no spare parts are in inventory at this time, then every effort is being made to source that which is required as quickly as possible. Today, all a commercial laundry operator has to do is pick up the phone or place an online order for commercial laundry parts and then that is that.
