Since COVID-19, caravan parks have risen in popularity among those looking to explore Australia without blowing the budget on hotel accommodation and expensive air travel.
The new-gen holidaymakers who choose caravan parks tend to be a mixed bag of young couples, families and grey nomads – those who previously would have flown overseas or interstate.
While this has led to more revenue for facility owners, it has also increased competition and the strain on facilities as patrons flock to the best-rated caravan parks around the country.
Well-maintained laundry facilities with high-quality, large-capacity commercial machines are a major attraction for travellers dealing with messy kids and muddy conditions.
Selecting the right machinery for your caravan park laundry is critical to your overall guest experience, which means there are several key factors to consider when making your decision.
Make sure your machines are fit for purpose
It’s worth investing in commercial-grade washers and dryers that are durable enough to withstand constant use while also delivering consistently high-quality, hygienic wash results for your guests. In the long run, choosing commercial over domestic-use machinery will minimise your laundry expenses – including those incurred by unexpected breakdowns and total machinery replacements.
A modern caravan park laundry should also look to provide an up-to-date payment experience. While many caravan parks offer free on-site facilities (with costs built into the site fee), those that don’t should cater to their customer base by offering cashless payment solutions.
