UniMac makes a wide range of commercial laundry products. As such, UniMac parts are in high demand. No one wants to replace expensive washer and dryer equipment when small repairs will get you up and running again. Unfortunately, finding quality parts at an affordable price can be a headache at times. Follow these tips to make the most of online sources for spare laundry parts.
Look for Quality UniMac Parts
Hundreds of sites sell poor-quality UniMac-compatible parts for washers, dryers and clothes presses. These are typically affordable, but they don’t last long. Your goal is to find a source for quality parts that will be worth your investment.
Once you find a source, you should consider buying regularly-needed extra pieces in bulk. Stocking up can help you save a bundle. Looking over your repair list for the past year can help you determine which supplies will be in high demand. Most commercial washers and dryers have specific parts that continually wear out. Lucky laundromat owners will find these parts are ultra-affordable online when purchased in lots.
Keep Tabs on Your Parts Source
Once you find a great resource, ensure you can always find it in a bind. In addition to saving a website in your favorites, make sure you write its information down somewhere off your computer. Motherboards crash. Websites disappear. You don’t want to lose your business resources just because you’ve lost your computer.
An easy way of doing this is keeping your receipts for online purchases neatly organized in your office. Label them, not only with URLs but customer service rep numbers. Keep their company in your Rolodex and check them a few times a year to replenish your stocked parts.
Negotiating and Finding Alternatives
Because the costs of caring for a fleet of washers and dryers can quickly add up, it’s important to focus on finding the best extra pieces at the lowest price available. Continually check out the competition to ensure your source of choice is staying on top of its game. The online marketplace breeds healthy competition and reasonable product prices.
Many old-school business owners are more comfortable finding – and sticking with – good business partners. You don’t automatically have to break ties with sites that seem to be providing the same products at higher prices. Remember that negotiating is still a possibility online. Sometimes, working out differences in cost for UniMac parts over email is easier than doing business in person.
