Jordan Berry's 2 Cents: Pick-up & Delivery the Easy Way

Starting a laundry pick-up and delivery business can feel overwhelming. What if there was an easier way to get started that would allow you to scale up your business without venturing into the unknown too soon? There is! And I'm going to tell you how you can do it right now!

Starting a Laundry Pick-up and Delivery Service

Challenges of Starting a Pick-up & Delivery Business  

Adding a pick-up and delivery service to your laundromat business adds multiple layers of complexity to both your systems and your management needs. Laundry pick-up and delivery is typically a logistics company. 

The logistics side of the business is what prevents a lot of laundromat owners from offering a pick-up and delivery service, even if they already offer a laundry drop-off service. Purchasing vehicles, hiring drivers, coordinating driver routes, and more demand time, effort, and investment that many laundromat owners simply can't, or don't want to, invest.

Simplifying Laundry Pick-up and Delivery

What if you could operate your laundry pick-up and delivery service exactly the same as your drop-off service? You've probably guessed by now that you can do exactly that. But the question is, how?

Cents, a leading laundromat software solution, just announced a native integration with DoorDash to be able to offer on-demand laundry pick-up and delivery that will allow customers to schedule a pick-up and delivery through DoorDash. It can function similarly to any other laundry drop-off customer.

Laundromat owners can use this as their sole pick-up and delivery option, or they can utilize it to help jumpstart their pick-up and delivery business. Cents is able to grow and expand with customers as their business grows and evolves.

Scaling Your Laundry Pick-up and Delivery

Another option for owners who have an established pick-up and delivery business, or who utilize the gig economy integration of Cents to grow a substantial pick-up and delivery business, is to utilize gig workers to expand into new territories and gather data on the viability of new geographies.

Flexibility in Utilization

As you can see, having the option to use only gig workers, using both gig workers and in-house drivers, and using only in-house drivers to build a laundry pick-up and delivery business are all options available to Cents clients. 

If you're looking into starting a laundry pick-up and delivery business and want to try the easy way before making a big investment into that part of your business, try Cents and see how they can help you with your business.
