Pick Up Laundry Service
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

What comes to mind when you say, "pick up laundry service"? Maybe a truck with a washing machine in the back? A large mechanical arm that picks up your clothes for you? Ok I know that is pretty silly but a lot of people don't realize that such a service exists. So we are going to discuss what the service includes and how to find such a service in your area and why it could be really beneficial to use such a service. So without further adieu, here we go.

A pick up laundry service is basically just as it sounds. You call a company and they come out to your house or business and gather your clothing. They take it to a wash facility and wash it for you. Then they dry your clothes and fold them before bringing them back to you. I want to expand on the details so that you will know what to look for when trying to find a quality company to take care of your laundry needs.

1. You want a company who will charge by the pound. It is a bonus if you get a discount by doing a flat bag rate.

2. Pick up and delivery ought to be free.

3. They should weigh your clothing in front of you and provide your total.

4. Two day turn around is pretty standard because you want your clothes washed separately from anyone else.

5. They should separate your clothes into dark's, light's and whites.

6. The pick up laundry service should provide detergent and dryer sheets.

7. They should separate your clothes into categories such as men and women's, boy's and girl's, ect.

8. They should bind the clothes with string to keep the clothes neat.

9. They should be open to servicing your special laundry needs.

That is a tough order to fill but you want the best of the best! When it comes to paying for someone to do your laundry, it has to come back better than how you would have done it! Now that you know what to look for in a pick up laundry service let's talk about how to find one.

Open up another tab in your internet browser and pull up Google. In the search field you need to type in the following:

"(your area) pick up laundry service"

Be sure to put your city or county in the place of (your area). That way you can find someone local. Leave out the parenthesis.

You are now armed with what to look for and how to find a quality company so now I will wrap up with reasons why you should pay to have this service as apposed to doing your laundry yourself.

1. Saving money on energy by not using your washer or dryer and not spending money one detergent will offset some of the cost of hiring someone else so your not actually going to be spending much more money than you already are by washing them yourself.

2. If you pick a really good company, they will likely wash and fold the clothes better than you would.

3. Most importantly, your will regain your freedom by letting someone else spend time doing your laundry! Think about it. All that extra time to do the things you really care about. Spending time with family, taking some "you" time, relaxing, getting caught up on other to do's. The list is endless! It's great!

So there you have it! Now you know what a pick up laundry service is, how to find one, what to ask them and why you can feel great about the money you spend to enjoy the service. Congratulations on taking back your freedom!

Not one service near my town. This area is a haven for elderly who have retired up north and moved here. Could be a side hustle for someone. Thanks!
