Owning a personal washing machine and clothes dryer can be highly convenient. All you need to do is throw in a load whenever you have time. You can pull your clothes from the dryer and hang them up while they’re still hot, or ignore them until you have time to deal with them. Still, today’s world is busier than ever, and many people are choosing an even more convenient solution.
A laundry service makes wash day a thing of the past. Just toss your dirty laundry into a bag (no sorting required!) and place it outside your door. It will be returned neatly folded, and all you need to do is put it away. Still, not all laundry services are equal. To choose the one that best meets your needs, consider the following 6 factors.
How long the laundry service takes should be a top consideration. You don’t want to have to turn down a dinner date or client meeting because your laundry is being cleaned. At Laundry Magician, we offer next-day service.
Loss or Damage Policy
Despite our best efforts, laundry service workers are not always able to remove every stain. However, you do have the right to expect that your laundry will be returned at least as clean as if you have washed it yourself. Although issues are rare, make sure you understand what your recourse is if your laundry is lost, damaged, or simply not cared for properly.
Make sure you understand the details of the service. Are you locked into a contract? Can you set up a long-term schedule? If so, are you free to change, suspend, or cancel it as desired? What if you need an extra pickup during the week, or have occasional specialty items? The more flexibility the laundry service provides, the happier you are likely to be in the long run.
Washing and Drying Options
Are you allergic to a particular detergent? Do you want your clothes washed only in cold water, or your towels washed only on the hottest setting? Do you prefer air drying rather than a clothes dryer? Make sure that the laundry service you choose has the ability and willingness to use the washing and drying methods that are the best fit for you.
The price of service is a common concern. This varies widely across the country, so call a few laundry services in your area to get a sense of the going rate. Don’t shop exclusively on price, as a very cheap service likely offers limited options, but the most expensive is not necessarily any better than its competitors. Choose a company with a good reputation that is close to the average price point for your region.
Your laundry is extremely personal, so look for a laundry service that takes reasonable precautions to guard your privacy. At Laundry Magician, each customer’s laundry is done separately, in different machines. In addition, your laundry service should not air dry your clothes in public or gossip about your fashion choices.
Naturally, respect is a two-way street. Try to remain polite and professional when speaking with your delivery personnel and customer service agents.
