There’s nothing quite like getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life and camping beneath the stars. Going back to basics and leaving technology behind can be truly refreshing – however, there are some limits! Unless you’re extremely brave, camping out without access to clean clothing or freshly washed towels can seem unpleasant.
That’s why, as a caravan or campsite owner, you may consider the benefits of offering on-site laundry services to your guests. Here are just three reasons to stop directing your guests to the local launderette and to offer your own laundry services.
Stand out from local competitors
When your future customers are doing their initial research to find the perfect campsite for them, it isn’t just the location and pricing they’ll think of. They’ll also look at the amenities you offer to make sure they aren’t too limited. After all, who wants to spend a week camping without access to a hot shower or boiling water? By promoting the fact you offer laundry services, you’re sure to stand out amongst the competition – especially to groups of people who plan to spend more than just a couple of nights with you.
Customers will feel at home
While getting away and enjoying the great outdoors can feel greatly revitalising, it only takes a bout of bad weather to make guests pack up and go home early. After all, if your clothes are wet and muddy, the rest of the trip isn’t likely to be very pleasant. However, if your guests are able to have their clothes washed, dried and returned looking spotless, they’re bound to feel much more at home. Clean, dry guests are happy guests, and happy guests are more likely to revisit your caravan or campsite!
From a business point of view, it’s important to make sure you keep turning over a profit each year – and offering laundry services could be a great way to increase your custom. After all, your guests are likely to seek out a washing machine at some point during their stay, but if there isn’t one on-site you’ll have to direct them to your nearest launderette. As a result, it will be them making a profit instead of you. By investing in laundry solutions, from commercial washing machines to tumble dryers, you’ll be able to charge a small fee to wash and dry your guests’ clothes, towels and bed sheets.
