This post is in collaboration with Door to Door Laundry Service.
This time of year can be crazy busy. Christmas concerts, end of year assemblies, parties, catch ups, Christmas shopping… the list is endless and I’ve spoken to a number of people recently who shared they find the whole lead up to Christmas very stressful.
Then sometimes life throws you curveballs. Last week Chloe was unwell, we had to rush her to Princess Margaret Hospital (more on that next week) and I spent the rest of the week with her just wanting me to hold and comfort her. We had to hit the pause button and everything else was forgotten, and my washing slowly but surely piled up.
When I finally managed to get around to it, it seemed totally overwhelming and it was by very lucky coincidence that a genius new service reached out to me – Door to Door Laundry Service.
This is a next day, door to door return laundry service (within a serviced area in Perth) for homes, businesses and clubs, and a godsend for busy people who just need a hand getting things done. I wish this had been around when my girls were newborns and I was totally sleep deprived.
Day One: Washing basket ready for collection!
Day Two: Laundry washed and folded, and some items ironed! One happy Mumma!
Door to Door Laundry Service would also make a really thoughtful and practical gift for anyone who has recently had a baby or an illness or just needs a hand – one less thing to worry about, and it’s amazing how it gives you back the gift of time – to take your kids to the park or head down to the beach. To just enjoy life.
I was really impressed with how professional Matthew was providing the Door to Door Laundry service. I received a text prior to him collecting the washing and another one the following morning giving me a delivery time. A tag that was attached to one of the clothing items was returned in a zip lock bag, along with some further info. Brilliant customer service.
Matthew Elliot started the business after receiving a golden handshake back in February 2014 which then meant he became a recipient of the Newstart allowance. After applying unsuccessfully for 150 jobs (can you imagine?), he was motivated to start his own business and walked around his home trying to figure out what could be outsourced and came up with the idea of Door to Door Laundry Service which he launched in August.
In that short space of time, Matthew has not only removed himself from receiving benefits but has a wonder employee Sharon who has also been able to remove herself from benefits after five years! Good work guys!
You gotta love people who think outside the box and are willing to work hard – what an inspiring story! Not only that, but Matthew is also giving back to the community with a school / not for profit initiative starting in 2015 with $10 from every voucher card sold going back to registered schools or not for profit organisations.
If you need a hand or know someone who could do with some laundry magic, then get onto Door to Door Laundry Service!
