Societe de classe superieure


Explanation:
Generalement White Glove est utilise quand on parle de class. Il ya par example aus USA the White Glove Society qui est en quelque sorte un regoupement de femme qui ont en commun les bonnes manieres et le savoir vivre qui le met au dessus de la femme moyenne. Je ne sais pas si je suis claire.
Aussi quand une personne dit que son appartement se trouve dans un white glove building, cela veut tout simplement dire que son appartement est de classe superieur et quil ya un gardien poste a l'entree

comment only


Explanation:
Certains sites parlent de leur service "white glove" qui consiste à livrer des appareils/meubles à domicile et effectuer le montage puis reprendre les cartons/emballages... Parle t-on de livraison dans votre cas?


Un exemple :
furniture delivery white glove delivery included basic freight
larger items like sofas dining tables and some beds are delivered via white glove service. there is no upcharge for white glove service. white glove service typically entails a call from the delivery service to schedule the delivery, two man delivery and basic set up at the location of your choice in your home (2 flights of stairs included), and take away and disposal of all packing materials. in stock items that ship via white glove service are typically delivered within 3 weeks of ordering.

nettoyage


Explanation:
Without context it is hard to be certain, but the first thing that came to my mind was cleaning, particularly dusting. The "white glove treatment" can also mean VIP service, as Merline said, but years ago there were television commercials for a product that cleans your furniture so thoroughly that a bloke can come in wearing white gloves and smear his fingers all over the furniture without leaving any trace of dust on his gloves.
(A bit of "cultural" background for your information!)
