Cleaning supplies are fundamental for any business, but they are particularly crucial for those who rely on a high level of hygiene, such as the hospitality or healthcare sectors.
In these environments, products such as antibacterial wipes are used daily, and form a fundamental part of many businesses’ cleaning essentials – it’s never a case of if you’ll use them, but when. Instead of buying on an ad-hoc basis, there are a range of benefits to companies buying antiviral wipes in bulk – particularly if they choose Uniwipe.
To help you decide whether to buy in bulk or not, the Uniwipe team has shared the top 6 benefits businesses can gain if they purchase their disinfectant wipes in bulk…
1. Buying in bulk will save you money
With inflation rates rising, there is a heavier demand on businesses to keep their costs to a minimum and maximise profits. While cleaning supplies may seem like a small expense, it’s often the everyday products purchased which provide the biggest opportunity to save money.
Bulk buying the essentials, like antibacterial wipes, is a simple way to reduce the amount being spent on supplies each year. As the number of items in your purchase increases, the cost per unit will be reduced so you can get the same amount of products for less if you make one big purchase.
2. Uniwipe can manage your stock for you
Ordering a large supply of antibacterial wipes may seem like a hassle, especially if you have little storage space. However Uniwipe can manage and control your stock on your behalf, which is extremely advantageous for businesses.
Your full order can be stored at the Uniwipe factory, and palettes can be called off as and when required. For example, some of our customers order 6 months’ worth of stock or more, and we deliver it in weekly installments, or help them develop a schedule that works for their team.
This means you would manage to secure a lower, bulk-buy price, have guaranteed stock available when you need, without having to store mass amounts of products at your own premises.
3. Stocking up will save you time
We all know that for any business, time is money. In addition to the amount of money that could be saved, time is another important factor which can be eliminated when you buy your company’s antibacterial wipes in bulk.
If you are making one big order, it will take far less time than making lots of smaller purchases on a more regular basis. More importantly, you won’t find yourself wasting time in an emergency when you realise you’re out of stock on cleaning supplies and need to find a supplier who can deliver what you need quickly.
When you buy in bulk, you’re getting the same amount of products but making fewer purchases less often, allowing you to be more efficient and dedicate more time to the core purpose of your business.
4. Bulk buying allows you to plan ahead
Having a high stock count of your business’ essential cleaning supplies will mean that you are better equipped for emergencies, should they crop up. If there’s anything that the pandemic taught us – it’s to plan ahead and be prepared for the unexpected.
From bad weather and logistical issues with your supplier, to a sudden increase in usage where you didn’t expect it, there are a lot of factors outside your business’ control which need to be taken into account when stocking up on the essential cleaning supplies.
When you buy in bulk, you can maintain a high stock count and reduce the risk of running out of things like antibacterial wipes if you encounter delays or stock shortages. Even if you don’t run into these issues, bulk buying still offers you peace of mind.
5. It’s more eco-friendly to buy in bulk
Every business and individual has a responsibility to help save the environment, no matter how small the action is. Bulk buying the everyday essentials for your business is an easy switch to make, and can have a big impact on the environment.
When you buy cleaning supplies in bulk, you’re contributing to less packaging being used before ending up in landfill sites, as well as reduced fuel consumption from fewer orders being delivered to you. Not only does bulk buying help your business to play it’s part, it also means fewer operational costs and CO2 emissions being produced by your manufacturer or supplier too.
6. Security buying in bulk from a UK manufacturer
The final key benefit of buying your antibacterial wipes in bulk from Uniwipe is centred UK manufacturing, rather than being imported from elsewhere. Uniwipe is a wipe manufacturer and brand – with the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility based in Scotland.
This gives you more control over your supply chain, and more confidence that your wipes will be available, and delivered when promised.
