Auto Mechanic Uniforms for Car Dealership
A Hartville, Ohio community staple since 1936, Schoner Chevrolet is one of Stark County’s premier new car dealerships.
Schoner Chevrolet became a Rentwear customer around 1975 when the original owner struck a deal with Rentwear president, Roger Clay.
“Service is everything these days, and they understand that. We rarely have any problems, but when we do, they’re promptly resolved.”
Rentwear & Schoner Chevrolet Today
Today, Rentwear supplies Schoner Chevrolet’s auto body service department with industrial uniforms on a weekly basis.
The company’s service assistant manager and warranty manager, Dave Hite has been with Schoner since 2000 and works directly with Rentwear.
“Service is everything these days, and they understand that,” Hite said. “We rarely have any problems, but when we do they’re promptly resolved.”
Hite also mentioned Rentwear’s consistency.
“They show up every Tuesday morning like clockwork,” he said. “It really makes my job easier.”
He explained that every so often Schoner looks at the uniforms GM employees wear and adjust theirs to match.
“We update the color and style every couple of years to improve our image,” he said. “Rentwear works with us to get the uniforms we want, and they embroider them with our logo.”
Hite thinks some of his staff would leave if they weren’t provided with work uniforms to wear.
“The technicians tear up their uniforms pretty good, so they wouldn’t want to wear their own clothes,” he said. “Rentwear does a good job of repairing and replacing damaged clothing.”
Like most local business partnerships, the Rentwear/Schoner Chevrolet relationship goes both ways.
“The service manager, Dan Simmons comes out to our location when we need him, and he buys cars from us when he needs a new one,” Hite exclaimed. “They appreciate our business and we appreciate theirs.”
