Starting a Wash and Fold Drop Off Laundry Service
More laundromats are beginning to reap the benefits of offering a wash and fold drop off laundry service. Not only is this a great way to earn additional revenue for your store but customers love the service because it saves them time and energy.
This is a great service for all types of people whether they live in a home or apartment with access to a laundry machine or not. Everyone leads busy schedules and allowing customers to drop off their laundry on the way to work and pick it up after a long day provides an extremely convenient solution to a necessary yet tedious task. If you’re interested in offering this service in your laundromat here’s what you need to know.
- Decide on hours: The best way to implement a wash and fold drop off laundry service is to staff a morning attendant between 7 and 11 to catch the drop off before work crowd and to start the wash process and an afternoon attendant between 4 and 8 to finish the wash process and prepare the customers’ orders for pick up after work.
- Training staff: Whether you currently have a couple part-time staff members or need to hire someone it’s imperative they are trained properly in removing stains, treating delicate items and folding clothes for a like-new appearance.
- Packaging: Quality packaging can separate your store’s wash and fold drop off laundry service from the competition. You have plenty of options to choose from including shirk wrap, thick cardboard paper, boxed packaging, etc. The most important aspect of your packaging is creating a professional appearance while providing the customers with packaging that won’t fall apart in the back of someone’s car or become damaged from bad weather.
- Market the service: Make sure all of your current customers know about the service by hanging signs throughout the store and especially in your windows to catch the eye of people around the neighborhood.
