HK was started in 1967 and for 50+ years the core of our business has been selling & setting up laundromats throughout the Hudson River Valley & Connecticut. Around 2005 HK started to provide laundry equipment and started to actively manage laundry rooms in Westchester County. We found that installing laundry rooms in apartment buildings, condos & co-ops was exactly what we were doing for laundromat owners but on a much smaller scale. Customers all want the same thing; a nice convenient place to do their laundry with quality washers & dryers and quick and dependable service. If they have a problem, they want it corrected quickly.
HK has been providing service to hotels, motels, nursing homes, hospitals, dry cleaners, prisons and veterinary and horse farms. These customers have in-house laundries and when they need service, they need service immediately. HK has 6 service technicians on the road all the time in full equipped service vans. We bring the same dedication and support to our managed laundry rooms as we do nursing homes & hospitals.
HK does not manage laundry rooms in NJ, Long Island, Brooklyn or Queens. These locations are outside our sphere of service influence. These areas are just too far away for us to keep and maintain our service standard of responding within 24 hours of a business day. We know our limits and can not be the management company for everyone. If you are in these areas we apologize for not being able to help you. We can recommend excellent laundry companies who will be able to satisfy your laundry room needs.
HK has 3 separate & distinct programs for our multi-housing customers.
Purchase - The purchase option is where HK will sell new (or used) laundry equipment to Multi-housing customers. These can be small 2-6 family apartment buildings to Hotels or large Apartment complexes. An HK specialist will work with property owner to determine the best equipment fit for their needs & requirements. HK has financing options available and also service contracts. With a purchase, HK can install & set the laundry equipment including card systems and training for management.
Rental - The rental option is where HK will install new (or used) laundry equipment in a multi-housing facility and will provide all service and maintenance of the equipment. The owner or landlord will have the moneybox keys and they will be responsible for collecting the money. Rental agreements have an initial time commitment and can be renewed after the term ends. Please contact an HK specialist so that we can tailor a rental program for your specific needs.
Management - The laundry room management option is where HK will install new laundry equipment to Multi-housing customers and maintain & service the equipment over the term of the agreement. HK will provide the landlord (or board) the option of a straight compensation or a shared revenue compensation. HK will handle all of the laundry room headaches for residents complaints to providing refunds and instructing residents on the proper use of the machines. HK knows that your core business is not managing laundry rooms, so we take on the headaches and this allows you get on with your core interests.
