Entry Mats – Why Rent? Buy Mats and Save!

Posted on: May 6th, 2015 by

Entry Mats That Are Above The Competition!We just had some rain and everywhere you go there are carpet runners. Every building I went into had at least 2 runners going in various directions. Marble and tile look pretty, but they real slippery real fast.

As I’ve said before I often find myself flipping over mats to see if I recognize any of ours anywhere. Most of the time I’ve noticed a tore up mat that looks like it might be one of ours, and check to just to be sure it’s not. It never is….. phew! It’s really easy to spot rented mats, they usually have one little corner missing some carpet, where they stamp their logo.

Rented mats, in theory, are great. When I was a host I loved rented mats. Most of the lobby/bar area covered with these great carpeted entry mat with our Logo on them. Every night I’d roll up the mats and put them aside and every morning I’d unroll magically clean mats. This made clean up a breeze!

Now, fast forward to me learning the ins and outs of restaurant ownership, and I couldn’t believe the company threw money away like that. Granted, it was a large restaurant chain and probably had money to burn. Realistically, as a small business owner, it makes no sense. Here’s some light math to prove my point:

 

Formula:
# of Mats per location x $Weekly Costs x 52 weeks x # of Locations

Example:
ABC Tire Shop uses an entrance mat Rental Service for 6 door mats (3′x5′ in size) at $5.00 per mat per week rental cost for 4 locations…

Rental Costs:
6 doormats x $5.00 weekly cost =  $30.00 x 52 weeks = $1560.00 per Location x 4 Locations = $6240.00 per year… ouch!

Purchase Costs:
6 rubber backed door mats (3′x5′ in size) @ $75.00 each = $450.00.

$450.00 to purchase vs. $1560.00 per year for rental door mats.
This would save you $1110.00 per year, per location x 4 Locations = a $4440.00 SAVINGS!

You could buy a 2nd set for backup or for those bad days you would have them on hand if needed… and it would still cheaper than renting!

We offer the same exact gripper rubber backed mats that a mat rental company typically uses for renting.  In fact, many of these companies buy the mats from us and then turn around and rent them to you.  The mat rental company then uses these entry mats with logo on them for an average of 5 years… and you could too.  So, why rent? Buy mats and SAVE!
