My name is Marie Stuart Noel. I’m the owner and founder of Boston Throne Chairs LLC.
I’m doing a series where I show you; how to care of your throne chair so you can preserve its lifespan. Especially, if you’re an event planner, who rents out a lot of thrones.
The series is including:
- Cleaning your throne chair
- Protecting your throne chair
- Transporting your throne chair
First, when a throne chair comes back from renting, put on gloves. You need to clean the chair though roughly to be ready for the next client.
What I didn’t mention on the video is: I have a depreciation checklist form for every rental. I know all metrics on every single rental and this list has helped me maximize return on the highest rentals.
Before you clean, observe first. Take a full assessment of the returned condition and document it.
- Start at the head area
- Check out the frames, for damages
- Make sure the diamond buttons are intact- but don’t touch them
- Dig into the arm and seat crevices for dirt and debris
- Observe the frames- check for chips
- Turn the chair around and check for marks, chips and discoloration
- Check the legs of the chair visually and physically- to make sure it’s not wobbly.
- Then, we’re ready to gather our tools to start cleaning.
Please note: This is a 360-documentation checklist of your product. Keep it in-house, a depreciation form for every single inventory item your business owns.
If you have a new or existing throne chair business, who needs assistance implementing SOPs within your business, I’m your gal.
