Aside from advertising, the general argument can be something along the lines of "We've already established protocols for most of the standard stuff, so how much time do you want your post-docs to waste reinventing the wheel when they could instead be doing something productive?" I know I was always happy in my post-doc days to off-load work like library prep. on a core facility, since (A) they were faster and (B) they do the preps so often that I could never have done a better job to begin with.
