Delivering Dry Cleaning Daily!
One of things I enjoy most about running my own dry-cleaning and ironing business is the free collection and delivery service. It’s my opportunity to tour the local area and catch up with clients, many of whom are now friends and good associates. I get to enjoy some really stunning local scenery such as the Devil’s Punchbowl in Hindhead or the ponds at Frensham.
Here’s a little snap-shot into a typical day of my collection and deliveries:
9:00: I arrive at the house of one of my most loyal, long-term customers. Usually, I come later in the day and we nearly always stop for a coffee and a quick catch up but today my clients have left their dry-cleaning tucked round the back of the house as they’re out for the day. Quite a few of my clients, such as those working all day in London, opt to leave the garments out for me. It’s quick and convenient for everyone!
10:45: A short drive from Haslemere and I arrive at a local business park to deliver freshly laundered and ironed shirts to my customers there. As usual, I get handed a few suits for dry-cleaning. My customers love knowing they’ll get their dry-cleaning back in the same speedy time as their shirts, plus they won’t have to waste time driving into town to drop their dry-cleaning off. Today there is also an urgent request to dry-clean a wedding outfit in time for the weekend; it’s that time of the year for weddings and races and everyone wants to look their best!
14:30: I make my way from Godalming to Farnham to catch the post-school run. I have a steady stream of customers across the town and its villages. Farnham is nestled in a very rural area so I‘m not surprised to see there’s a waxed jacket waiting for me to be re-proofed. It might be summer but the showers are still falling! I make a quick stop to deliver fresh clean towels to a local Farnham office and then it’s back on the road.
17:00: By early evening I’m in Hindhead delivering laundry to kitchens and then I have a last few house calls to make. A new customer asks me if I can do simple clothes repairs and hands me a skirt with a zip that needs replacing. I’m always happy to help out if I can. I like to think of Butlerz as a one-stop-shop where my customers can get whatever they need!
19:00: I’m done for the day. As ever, it’s been rewarding to see so many happy customers and knowing I’ve saved them time and hassle for all their laundry and dry-cleaning requirements.
