Pickup & Delivery
Frequently asked questions
Do I have to use your laundry bags?
We highly recommend it. When using our pick-up and delivery service it is required that your laundry is put into a sturdy bag of some sort. We do not accept hampers, baskets, or any type of container that cannot close. Heavy duty garbage bags are acceptable as long as they are free of rips, tears or holes - and the bag must be able to close. The bags we sell are washable and reusable and are very strong and sturdy. They are made up of heavy-duty denier fabric will hold up for many many months, whereas a trashbag will only last one trip.
How do I get a laundry bag? Is there a cost to me?
Washboard Express will provide you with your first bag at no charge to you. We have two sizes to choose from - Standard and Large. If you are in need of another or lose the one you have, additional bag(s) can be purchased at $3ea for the Standard and $5ea for the Large.

Do you have a miniumum order for pickup and delivery?

How do I leave a tip for the delivery driver and/or laundry attendant?
In the notes field on the final order screen, indicate how much tip you would like to give and we will add it to your credit card when we process your payment.
Why does my order total show $0?
Your order total shows zero until we have picked up the laundry & weighed the order. Since our pricing is based on "per pound" we are unable to give you an accurate order total until we haved weigh the clothes back at our store.
