Many Australian firms hire in-house window cleaners when they can outsource the service to the professionals. Instead of adding more financial liabilities – insurance, wage, benefits – to your payroll each month, you will only pay a minimum fee whilst getting the best service every time.
Aside from cost-savings here are the top benefits you get in outsourcing your window cleaning needs.
Round the clock availability
In-house staff are entitled to sick days and vacation. But what if a client make an unexpected visit and your employee is on leave? In outsourcing, whether you need regular service, one-time sprucing up or emergency window cleaning, you will always get someone even if it requires overtime or a weekend job.
Fully uniformed and trained window cleaners
Window cleaning is not a job for everybody. It requires great skill and know-how, not to mention the right tools to ensure a job well done. It is not really rocket science. Window cleaning businesses obviously have the necessary skill to do a job effectively and efficiently.
In outsourcing, you can demand satisfaction. Service providers want your repeat business and for you to spread the good job they have done. Also, if the service do meet your standards, it is substantially easier to hire new service with little inconvenience. As such, they will provide extra attention to details and meeting your expectations is a minimum requirement.
Full OH&S compliance
Completing Risk Assessments and Job Safety Analysis are essential part of any window cleaning job to ensure a trouble free completion. It is a requirement mandated by the law which means you can hold the service provider liable and accountable for any dangerous work practices being conducted in your premises. But beware, not all service providers are OH&S compliant. So know who you are dealing with first.
Flexible payment terms
Remember, not all providers offer flexible payment terms but there are some who do. One trusted name in the industry is City Clean and whilst most companies practice COD, City Clean encourages their clients to take advantage of their 30 day terms. Payment can be made by cheque, EFT or if all else fail, in cash.
You may also be pleased to know that City Clean does not subcontract jobs and they are comprehensively insured for $20 million public liability and $50,000 key loss and damaged/scratched glass of which up until now they have not yet made a claim. Plus, their staff are regularly checked for criminal or civil issues. Some of their staff are even ASIC passes bearer allowing them entry at the airside of the airport. As you can imagine, City Clean staff underwent rigorous checking procedure ensuring your workplace safety and security.
