The Contract Cleaning service we offer is organised through a network of contracting companies that we have worked with for many years. Initially they were customers for our dry ice, but as we also offered contract cleaning services when we started out we realised that it would be far better to pass on the physical job of doing the cleaning to the specialists we know, rather than competing with our customers.
Today we call our customers in the dry ice contracting business our Network Contractors and we pass on all enquiries we receive for contract cleaning work. We usually pass the enquiries to the nearest contractor to the job site to keep travel costs down, but if the work is very specialist we will look at the best suited contractor for the job.
When we pass a job to a Network Contractor you will receive a quotation direct from the contractor, and so you can then place your order direct with him. We do not get involved financially in the transaction. Our interest is selling dry ice, and every contract placed by you to a Network Contractor is an order for dry ice for us.
Another advantage of our Network Contracting system is that many of the contractors are specialist companies with expertise in many other cleaning processes. This means that if dry ice is not the ideal solution for your job, the contractor will say so and give you other options that may be cheaper or more suited to the job than dry ice.
We also make use of our Network Contractors when a customer is looking to rent our equipment either for a short period or for a difficult task. Hiring equipment out for less than a week is not economic, due to the costs of transport and training being the same for one day’s use or for the whole week, but a skilled contractor is often able to do one or even two days work for less than the cost of a weeks hire.
If we see this to be the likely when a customer asks for a rental quote we also recommend that he gets a price from one of our Network Contractors. Contractors will also work faster than a newly trained novice hiring kit for the first time, and be more skilled for the difficult tasks.
