Lost garments may be costing you in excess of 10.0% of your uniform rental expenses.  So if you spend $1,500 a month, our industry’s average would suggest you are charged $150 a month for lost garments, flying completely under the radar and showing up on your invoice.

Traditionally, uniform companies do not provide a reconciliation of soiled garments picked up to cleaned garments returned.

Furthermore, some uniform companies use lost uniform charges as a means to offset low unit rates.  Until now, your only recourse is to prove to the uniform company that they are not counting your soiled garments though a manual log process.  Great idea, but how practical is it?
