Should I Buy or Rent My Shop’s Auto Mechanic Uniforms?

Although it (surprisingly) hasn’t been an episode yet on Mike Rowe’s “Dirty Jobs”, auto mechanics come in contact with all kinds of grime on a daily basis: oil, grease/lubricants, and various fluids on a daily basis. At the end of the day, auto mechanic uniforms can look like they have literally been run over. Because of the tough stains they can easily acquire, they require a cleaning that’s twice as tough.


Auto mechanic uniforms get dirty. Renting them instead of buying gives many benefits.

It’s standard for auto mechanic uniforms to be made from heavy material to protect the skin from the many liquids they may come in contact with, but is it best to buy uniforms outright or invest in uniform rentals?

Most likely the latter, and we’ll explain why.

A Rough Trade

Skilled trades in hands-on occupations, such as auto mechanics, often put heavy use on uniforms. This can be tears, lost buttons, heavy stains, etc. Buying uniforms generally puts you in charge of these repairs and the process required to remove these deep stains, which can be costly and time-consuming. After all, no one is going to want to put those oil-soaked garments in their home washer. And where are you going to get the buttons?

Uniform rentals cover these dilemmas. Alterations and repairs from wear are covered, and soiled uniforms are replaced timely with crisp, clean uniforms. If you buy your auto mechanic uniforms outright, you might have a hard time repurposing it, and good luck returning a uniform spotted in anti-freeze, lubricant and power steering fluid.  Lord Baltimore will size your employees, saving you the hassle of collecting sizes from employees who often are unsure of their sizes and give you their best guess.

How Do Uniform Rentals Work?

It’s actually a simpler process to rent auto mechanic uniforms than to buy them, especially when you’re working with an experienced, local company like Lord Baltimore.  Simply contact them. They will schedule an appointment to meet with you and determine what your needs and preferences are and provide prices.  Unlike some of the larger companies they can customize your garments to your preference.  Once your account is setup, adding or removing employees from the program is a breeze.
