When it comes to choosing between manufacturers of commercial cleaning equipment…
There are really only three things to take into account:
- Will the machine do a better (faster / more efficient) job of cleaning than another manufacturers machine?
- How long will the machine keep going for, before it breaks down?
- Will the machine give you better value compared to another make and model?
Those are really the only three criteria worth considering if you’re a prudent professional cleaner.
And when it comes to the only three criteria that really matter…
There is… ONLY ONE TRUSTED manufacturer that all prudent professional cleaners eventually turn to.
And that manufacturer is: CENTAUR FLOOR MACHINES
Here are the reasons prudent & professional cleaners end up choosing Centaur machines.
As you probably know, the most important component in any commercial cleaning machine is the motor.
So guess what Centaur does in the case of its swing machines?
Centaur employs expert machinists (with years of experience) to take apart and REBUILD the motors… before assembling the motor into a machine and releasing it for purchase.
Why does Centaur undertake this extra, labor intensive process you ask?
Because they fuss over everything that goes into their machines.
Just like a high-performance car getting a souped-up engine from a NASCAR team – Centaur floor machines get a souped-up motor BEFORE they are allowed to be sold.
Something else you may not know:
Unlike other manufacturers of cleaning machines that have mass-scale (and often automated) production assembly…
Every Centaur machine is entirely HAND-BUILT.
All Centaur machines are also made from the highest-quality (longest-lasting) components.
So, all in all:
Centaur takes the meticulous “Rolls-Royce” approach to manufacturing and assembly.
Where every component of each machine is tested individually as the machine is built.
So what’s the result of this hand-built craftsman’s approach?
Well, a Centaur floor machine will typically still be working 30 to 45 years after purchase and a Centaur vacuum will typically still be working 15 to 25 years after purchase.
(Funny true story: A guy recently phoned into Centaur to say the vacuum his mother had bought when he was 16 was beginning to “growl” and sound a little odd. And could he buy a new one. The Centaur representative said sure and asked him how long ago the machine was purchased. The caller said, well I’m 60 now, so that would have been 44 years ago).
Contrast that “working life span” with other commercial cleaning machines.
Realistically, most other manufacturers floor machines will only last you between 5 and 10 years before breaking down, requiring you to pay-out again for a replacement…
While other vacuum cleaners will only last you between 2 to 5 years before quitting on you.
Centaur floor machines last 30 – 45 years.
Other manufacturers floor machines last around 5 – 10 years.
What’s the overall benefit of Centaur machines lasting 3 to 9 TIMES LONGER than other manufacturers machines?
Take a look:
- Centaur machines cost less per month / year to own and operate compared to other machines
- Lowest downtime / repair time or loss of productivity on a job when you use Centaur machines
- A Centaur machine will have a higher residual / resale value — highest among the competition (Centaur machines depreciate the least).
- Centaur is more environmentally friendly that other manufacturers machines (you won’t be chucking your Centaur machine into a landfill any time soon!)
ONE Centaur machine can typically do the “jobs” of 2 to 3 machines from another manufacturer.
So yes, Centaur machines ARE priced higher than other manufacturer machines, but their VALUE is higher, and the overall real “cost” to you is lower.
The only “maintenance” required on a Centaur machine is to give it a clean over from time-to-time.
Well, just about every prudent professional cleaner eventually gravitates to using a Centaur machine. And they nearly always wish they’d done so sooner.
What about you?
Why not get the ball rolling today… and look into all the advantages and “life-time cost savings” a Centaur machine gives you?
I’m confident in saying that any cleaner with a Centaur machine will tell you it will be one of, if not the, best investment you’ll ever make in professional cleaning.
