Outsourcing your business cleaning needs to a professional is a smart way to reduce your overall costs because it reduces your dependency on non-critical in-house resources and frees up a chunk of your revenue for more vital business aspects. But there are other ways to save money and boost revenue when outsourcing cleaning of your commercial property.
Choose A Business Cleaning Vendor With Multiple Offerings For Better Pricing
You probably need cleaners for multiple areas and applications around your office — from simple desk and floor cleaning to more sophisticated window washing and computer equipment cleaning. Some vendors offer specific services only like vacuuming and mopping, while others have the capacity to offer a wider gamut to meet your needs. Instead of choosing multiple vendors for different applications, which can prove to be more expensive, you can negotiate a better pricing deal with a single business vendor who offers multiple services. The lure of more business may result in the vendor offering you a discount for more cleaning services, which will ultimately benefit your bottom line.
Always Be On The Lookout For Better Deals
Even if you have signed a contract with a cleaning company, there's no reason why you shouldn't benefit from better value for money. A good way to negotiate with professional cleaners is to have an idea of pricing deals available in the market. If there are better pricing deals available, you may use this as a stepping stone to negotiate a lower cleaning price from your existing vendor. While using this negotiation tactic, remember that there is a fine line between quality and low price. If the pricing deal is too good to be true, then it's possible that the cleaning products used are poor quality. Make sure your vendor uses eco-friendly products when negotiating for a better deal. In most instances, your business cleaning vendor will agree to bring down some costs without compromising on product quality to retain your business.
Offer Barter Deals For Lower Prices
Think of ways you could help the business cleaning service as a barter deal to get a lower price from them. For instance, perhaps you can introduce the cleaning service to other offices within your building to get them more business in exchange for a lower cleaning fee. If you run a technology consultancy, you could help them improve their billing practices to help bring down their operating costs. The idea is to find a way to barter some of your services in exchange for lower prices without compromising on your workload and overall revenue. If you can find a way to do this, you can boost your revenue by getting a better deal from the business cleaning company.
