What if ‘off the shelf’ uniform doesn’t quite do the job?

We have just received this review from Nigel on TrustPilot –

Screen shot taken from TrustPilot. Date of review August 1st 2017.

One of the services that MyWorkwear offer as a UK manufacturer, is the ability not only to design and make custom uniform and workwear from our factory in Shropshire. We also are able to alter ‘off the shelf’ clothing that is bought from our online shop and doesn’t quite fit your requirements.

One example of this is for one of the UK’s largest car wash companies.  MyWorkwear have been the sole uniform supplier for Waves and Tesco hand car washes since 2002. Supplying bespoke uniforms for over 250 sites across the UK. Working with Waves, MyWorkwear designed and produced a range of uniform products in specialist materials resistant to harsh chemicals which have no visible zips or buttons to prevent cars from scratches.

How can we help you?

Do you need specialist clothing designed better to protect your products or staff for specific job roles. Can’t find the colours that best represent your corporate brand? As a clothing manufacturer we design bespoke and specialist uniforms for all sorts of job types. We have worked with such organisations as the NHS, Waves at Tesco and many factories who require anti static clothing for paint or electrical environments.

With over 40 years experience, all of our work is carried out in house to the highest standards.

Please give us the opportunity to talk to you personally about how we can help with your uniform and workwear needs. Get in touch 01952 585881 or email sales@myworkwear.co.uk

 

Why you should be thinking about autumn/winter uniform this summer.

Whether it’s rain or glorious sunshine at your window today, it’s summer. A great time to think of ice cream and bbq’s and which books to pack when on your holiday. But are you missing a trick? After all once August has passed, the children return to school, college and university and the dark nights start to creep forward. Then before you know it, you are digging out coats, hats and scarves.

Even though we are in August, why don’t you start to think about the workwear and uniforms that yourself and your team will be wearing this autumn/winter? Not only will ordering it now mean that you’ll have it ready just incase the chilly days arrive before you expect them too. If you order before 23.59 on Sunday August 13th you will save at least 10% off your order in our super summer sale.

So why not take a look at the MyWorkwear website and see whether any of our long sleeved shirts, tee’s or polo’s work for you. Then consider gilets and bodywarmers for days where it’s a little chilly, but not quite cold enough for a coat. We have a fantastic selection of both sweatshirts and fleeces. Then don’t forget to look at coats and jackets. We also sell scarves, hats and gloves. Nearly everything that we sell can be embroidered or printed with your company logo or name. Helping you to get your branding across easily, however many layers you have on.

Once you’ve taken a look you can order directly through our website, or call our friendly team on 01952 585881. Then we’ll let you get back to thinking about which books to pack. If you like mystery books, I can highly recommend ‘The Forgotten Room’ by Lincoln Child!

Happy Holidays!

Peace of mind when you order from a reputable UK company

There’s a popular myth that we’ve lost UK clothing manufacturing to the far east.

MyWorkwear dispel this myth by offering the following advantages compared to ordering from the likes of China.

  • Low order volumes (Far Eastern companies usually want orders in the 1000’s)
  • Fast delivery from within the UK not a “slow boat from China”
  • Reactive to your requirements by offering bespoke changes to the clothing with immediate effect
  • High quality materials sourced with properties specifically for the job (colourfast against bleach, anti static, fire retardant, water resistant etc)
  • Interactively design and develop clothing prior to any bulk order
  • No language misunderstandings, which may lead to expensive mistakes in cost and time

To find out how we can help your business, please call us during the week on 01952 585881 or visit our website.

We are proud to have been manufacturing in the UK since 1976. We continue to this day to employ skilled local people to manufacturer bespoke designed, specialist clothing and workwear. All manufacturing takes place in our in-house production facility in Shropshire.

Wearing Hi-Viz? What can you do to keep cool?

In most of the UK at the moment, it’s safe to say that it’s scorching. If you are having to wear any kind of uniform or PPE, the chances are that the outfit you are currently roasting in is also the one that keeps you warm in winter – even if you have shed your sweatshirt! We thought that you might like to see some alternative Hi-Viz uniforms to help keep you cool whilst the temperature continues to rise.

If you have to wear hi-visability clothing to work then you need to be seen – whether that’s in a dark winter’s evening, or in the bright glare of sunshine.

We have available a wide selection of short sleeve hi-viz t-shirts and polo shirts that may reduce the need for wearing an extra vest. This is because they have the reflective stripes directly on the shirt. We have Hi-Viz shorts and even bump and reflective caps, so that if you aren’t wearing a helmet, you can keep the sun off your face.

Hi-Viz polo shirt, available in 2 colours and in sizes small – 3XL

Two tone t-shirt, available in 4 colours from size small – 3XL.

Poly cotton shorts, available in 2 colours from size small – XXL

Wear a uniform or protective clothing to work? Reclaim tax

MWW 40th Anniversary Logo

If you are required by your employer to wear a uniform or protective clothing and have to wash, repair or replace if yourself, you may be able to reclaim tax back from the UK Government.

Unfortunately you cannot reclaim tax back on the uniform purchase itself. However if you’ve bought from MyWorkwear, with our price match guarantee, you’ll sleep soundly in the knowledge that you’ve paid the best price available.

How much can I get and how do I claim?

Depending on what occupation you have will depend on how much rebate you can claim. The amount will depend on the nature of the clothing and the frequency with which it is washed.

Some employment is covered by a fixed rate. For example, at time of writing a Joiner or Carpenter could claim £140 a year whilst a Plumber could claim £120. If you take a look at this page on the government website you will be able to see if your occupation is listed. If you are a nurse or a healthcare worker, then you should look at this page to see how the rates apply to you.

If your occupation isn’t listed, then you will be able to claim a flat rate expense which from 2008/9 onwards is £60 per year. Click here for more information.

The government say that you can claim back for the past 4 years. So if you wore uniform and no longer do, it’s worth trying to make a claim.
