We’re real people doing laundry…really well

With other chores like grocery shopping, dog walking, and lawn care available at the click of a button, why not laundry?

Whether you’re a family-homeowner with a washer & dryer who needs a helping hand, or a young renter without access to a washer and dryer, Columbia Pike Laundry’s laundry pick up service proves that laundry is another chore you outsource––to local experts like us. But with delivery laundry services becoming more mainstream, there are some considerations you should make before sending your clothes out for cleaning.

So, how do you find a reliable laundry service near you? Here are some tips to consider as you begin searching.

#1: Do you know who is doing your laundry?

Whatever you need – there’s an app for that. But, is that always a good thing?

While you might not care who is delivering your pizza, you should care who is doing your laundry. With the rise of middle-man apps that pair you with the closest, cheapest, (insert any other superlative here) service provider, you have no idea who is picking up, cleaning, and delivering your clothes. And, this likely changes order-to-order based on however the middle man app chooses to schedules your service.

These providers even opt to send orders to individuals to wash at their home instead of a professional company operating in a professional laundry facility. We believe that you should know who is doing your laundry – not just ordering from any app you find online.

We’re an all-inclusive laundry service that at the click of a button could handle the abuse we put our clothes through on a daily basis. We set out to create a quick & convenient service that we would use. But, we needed it to be the quality of service that our moms would use. Unlike other delivery app options, we operate our own production facility.

#2: How is the laundry treated and packaged for delivery?
Does the company offer customizations to their treatment? Can you select your detergent scent preference, softener, washer and dryer temperature preferences and bleach options?

In addition to additives, the packaging and presentation is a big factor when deciding quality. At Columbia Pike Laundry, we believe wash and fold doesn’t mean wash it, fold it, and stuff it back into one big wrinkled mess. We offer drawer-ready packaging – meaning your clothes are returned in drawer-ready bags aimed at getting your laundry organized and ready for the drawer.
#3: What is the average laundry pick up service turnaround time?

You’ll find a wide range of turnaround times when scouting potential laundry services. We’ve found that good laundry services treat turnaround time like a pool cleaning or maid service – not an Uber ride. Scheduling it out in advance is important and you’ll find between one and two days is to be expected.

Laundry is delicate. And, we take it seriously at Columbia Pike Laundry. Our standard turnaround for pickup and delivery is 24 hours. For in-store drop off our standard is 48 hours. With a little bit of forethought and planning, our one-day turnaround is easy to plan for. And, it’s delivered straight to your door.
