Short-Term Hire Can Help You Deep Clean Your Business This Holiday Season
As the holiday season rapidly approaches, manufacturers, warehouses, industrial facilities and many other businesses are beginning their holiday season preparations. With the rise of eCommerce and the explosion of retail sales and freight deliveries during the lead up to Christmas, there is an increased need to ensure that facilities are clean and prepped for the crowd.
On the other side, many businesses will be closing their doors or operating with a skeleton crew for a few weeks to give their employees a much-needed break. This is the perfect time to accomplish building repairs, upgrades, and, of course, deep cleaning — including those high-traffic areas where it may typically be difficult to operate commercial floor cleaning equipment.
Conquest’s new Melbourne-based fleet of short-term hire industrial cleaning machines allows you to scale cleaning operations to meet specific timeframes. So, whether you need to upscale during the busy season or simply perform a deep clean during the holidays, you can achieve your objectives without the price tag of a long term investment in capital equipment.
But the holiday season is not the only time you can scale your equipment fleet . From warehouses with spills to construction sites requiring clean-up at the pre-lock-up stage or building make-goods at the end of a commercial lease, there are many situations where you may need some additional cleaning power. Other opportunities to leverage Conquest’s readily available short-term hire fleet include:
- Periodic or seasonal cleaning need
- In preparation for audits
- During stock take
- Construction site clean-up
- Facility or factory clean-up
- and many more!
Why Short Term Hire is Perfect For Your Business
Short-term hiring of a floor cleaner is the perfect solution for situational cleaning events like the holidays, where retail and commerce foot traffic increases by over 70%. Investing in a commercial or industrial floor cleaner for a once-off cleaning need simply isn’t cost-effective. With short-term hire, you can invest in needs-based cleaning without significant equipment investment.
Did you know that more than 5,800 slips and falls occur every year during the Christmas season? Between increased productivity outputs and additional foot traffic, ensuring that your business is clean and safe is crucial when it comes to your overall safety ecosystem.
The holiday season brings increased freight volume, chaotic schedules, and lots of busy workers. The last thing you need is dirt, debris, grime, and sticky surfaces resulting in injuries and delayed workflows.
At Conquest, we have the right machine to meet your needs. Whether you operate a large industrial factory or a parcel shipping facility, our short-term hire solution can help you handle those holiday rushes and gives you the flexibility to perform a deep clean in the following down time.

3. Expert Advice
Conquest will also provide training as part of their short-term hire solutions. Our cleaning professionals will come to your business to train operators at time of delivery, or on our site at time of pickup. We’ll even send printed manuals and equipment checklists (as well as service history sheets) to alleviate any machine operating pain points, and our team are on-call for any troubleshooting.
4. Convenient Pickup or Delivery
We know that businesses are busy, and that only amplifies during the lead up to the hectic holiday season. That’s why we offer both pick-up and delivery options. Both of these options include equipment training and the appropriate paperwork. We also offer rental trailers for cleaning machine transportation for your convenience.
Sometimes, things don’t go as planned or needs change. So, if you ever need the machine for a longer duration, we can negotiate extending the terms of your short-term hire or discuss flexible long-term rental options to meet your specific needs.
6. Ongoing Support
Our state-of-the-art floor hire fleet are well-serviced, so we don’t expect that you’ll need to do anything more than some simple daily maintenance. But if you plan on renting the equipment for a longer duration, our certified technicians will come to your site to perform routine scheduled servicing at no additional cost.
Note: We are taking holiday season bookings for short-term hire in the Melbourne area until December 16th. All pickups or deliveries must be made by the 20th of December 2019, or after 6th of January 2020. We are planning to expand our short-term hire fleet to Brisbane and Sydney in 2020.
