“I’m on top of my laundry” said no mama ever!
If you feel like you need a helping hand to tackle your burgeoning Mount Washmore, the very popular Laundry Lady home delivery laundry service has now expanded its service area to include Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
Already well established on the Gold Coast, the simple online booking system makes the Laundry Lady something akin to the ‘uber’ of laundry. At the click of a button, select a time slot online and the Laundry Lady will collect your washing and return it 24 hours later – washed, folded and/or ironed. You don’t even need to be home, simply leave the laundry at the door.
Offering a full range of laundry services – wash, dry, fold, and ironing – you simply select what you need. Services start at $44 per pick up. They also offer commercial laundry services for businesses such as medical centres, hairdressers, hotels and holiday rentals.
The Laundry Lady is the brainchild of Susan Toft who, when she had a young family, wanted to do something flexible around the kids.
“I remember when I was working in corporate my washing used to sit in a pile. I’d spend half an hour trying to find something to wear, and it was never ironed!” Susan said. “That’s how it started.”
And this year the successful concept is expanding across the region, now being available to Brisbane families and businesses, and soon to be available on the Sunshine Coast too.
“As well as now providing laundry home delivery services to more places, the opportunity is also there for other mums to come on board in each area as contractors.
"Our Laundry Lady’s earn more commission than an uber driver and can work from the safety and comfort of their own home!” explains Susan.
For Susan, mums are at the heart of the business. “All the Laundry Lady contractors are mums. It’s the perfect job – you can work from home and pick your own hours, and you have 24 hours to do the laundry and deliver it back so you can fit it around your existing family commitments. Our contractors never have to miss a school sports carnival or after school soccer practice, they can even work at night when the kids are in bed, and get paid to iron while watching TV!”
