Armstrong equip laundry for sheltered accommodation near Watford

Capel House is a block of 34 mainly single occupancy sheltered flats in South Oxhey.  Residents are able to live independently with some support from the manager who is on site during normal working hours and a ‘warden call’ system out of hours.  The house has a large lounge and attractive outdoor area where various activities are arranged, and where residents can get together to socialise or for the occasional communal meal.  Among the on-site facilities is a laundry equipped by Armstrong Commercial Laundry Systems where residents can do their washing.

The laundry, which consists of two Horizon 8kg washers and two matching tumble dryers, was installed in 2013 on the increasingly popular Armstrong fixed price hire arrangement which covers labour and parts on any repair, and replacement when it is required.

The manager of Capel House, told us that they had been very pleased with the equipment and the service.  “I think we’ve only had one minor problem”, she said, “and they came out really quickly to fix it.  We had a laundry before but it was always a major problem if anything went wrong getting someone to come out and put it right.  The machines are also really easy for the residents to use – simple to follow instruction posters were supplied by Armstrong.”

A weekly booking rota ensures that all the residents get a chance to use the equipment when it suits them.  The laundry is spacious and bright, spotlessly clean and looks really well cared for.

What our clients say...

  • “Our machines have come from several suppliers – there is a big difference in the standards of support we receive and Armstrong gets 10 out of 10 – their service has been consistently excellent over several years and when you’re as busy as we are, that’s very important.”

    Jacqui Butler

  • “It’s important to get the right equipment for the job, too small and it won’t do it properly, too big and you are wasting money, energy and space. It is also important to deal with a company you trust to supply reliable equipment and give you the support you need. As expected, the installation went smoothly, we have never had the slightest problem and I know Armstrong will deal with it if we do.”
