What stage are you at in your business journey?

 

Getting Started

Shop & Site

When you find your premises, Renzacci UK will not only advise on all practical elements, like size and mains utility requirements, but we will also provide you with all the technical CAD drawings to ensure the layout of your shop is both efficient and practical. By supporting you from the start of your project, we can help ensure common pitfalls are avoided, thus reducing unnecessary costs and stress. For complete peace of mind, Renzacci UK carry out a full site survey and report in detail any necessary work required from your builder. We provide a detailed installation procedure for your chosen premises, whether the installation is contracted to us or elsewhere. This report will save you money and reduce installation costs.

Additional Elements to Consider

Location

We can help you find the perfect location or simply evaluate your proposed premises. Additional costs can be incurred if your location is, for example, installed over several floors or is above a cellar. The additional building works required to install extra piping or a concrete plinth will increase your start-up costs.

3-phase electricity supply

All dry cleaning, Wet Cleaning and industrial laundry machinery work on a 3-phase electricity supply. Try to ensure that your new premises has this level of supply already available. If not, we can help you through the application process to have it installed. However, we do recommend that a quote is obtained BEFORE you sign or take out a lease or freehold.

Floor construction

All dry cleaning machines and large industrial equipment need solid flooring to ensure they are fixed down well. We recommend that our customers seriously consider the flooring in their new premises as it can be a huge issue if the floor is just floor boards or is above a cellar. Solid concrete bases are required, or at the very least, the ability to install one. We can advise you on this element before you sign any leases.

Shop access

As is the case with many high streets, towns and cities these days, parking can be a real issue. However there are two elements that we encourage our clients to consider when choosing a site. Firstly, machine access. The machines that will be installed will be quite large and if access is restricted due to parking restrictions or physical barriers, this will have implications to your shop installation. Secondly, customer parking. Easy drop off and collection access will make your shop convenient and highly attractive to customers, which will possibly give you an edge over competitors. Viewing the site at different times of the day will give you a good insight into the level of passing traffic and ease of parking.

Machinery layout

Our vast experience in the industry will ensure your shop will not only have the right equipment for your business, but that the equipment is placed in such a way to maximise work flows. Our highly experienced sales team will be able to provide you with a full CAD drawing which will help you to visualise how your finished shop will look and work. These drawings can be shared with your construction team and can provide the blueprint for any building work being carried out.

Delivery & installation

Delivery and installation of your machinery could cost anywhere between £2,500 - £6,000 (for a typical new outlet), depending on the location and the amount of equipment being installed.

Retail space

Visual impact is a huge element to your business and is something we can help you with. This can start from the exterior and branding of your business to the customer-facing shop section to your premises.

Getting Off the Ground

If you're at the stage where you've decided on your business model, your premises, your solvents and your machines, there’s only a few more elements to think about when setting up your new business.

EPOS systems

Although Renzacci UK do not specifically offer this element, we have obtained strong relationships with suppliers that can provide you with the best and most reliable front of house tills and management systems on the market. Simply let us know and we can point you in the right direction.

Bagging

Keeping your freshly-cleaned garments in pristine condition until collection is essential to your business’ reputation. Renzacci UK offer Hawo bagging solutions to meet every demand, from hanging garments to bagging flat work. For our full range of bagging equipment, click here

Finance

Renzacci UK is a licenced credit broker, and as such, we’re able to offer our own competitive finance arrangements to both new and existing customers. Equipment can be financed over a 2, 3, 4 or 5 year period, and all that is required is a 10% deposit. We can arrange low monthly payments and some equipment can be provided with an interest-free credit. Get in touch with us to discuss our finance options.

Expansion and business health check

Once your business is up and running, we can offer a business health check to ensure you are working to your maximum capacity and if there are any additional revenue streams that you can tap into. We have a number of expansion possibilities available to you. Please call the office for an informal, no-obligation chat.

Our Machinery Package for Start Ups

Renzacci UK can offer you a wide range of machines to meet your particular needs. Once you have decided on the chemical method/combination of methods you will be using, we can find the right machine to fit your shop space, capacity and budget.
