Apartment Laundry Service Subscription
1. How does the apartment laundry service subscription work?
Whether you’re a new customer or an existing customer, you’re eligible to sign up for the apartment laundry service subscription if you are a resident at an apartment complex. This discounted offer is an effort to help apartment residents avoid laundromats and community laundry rooms during the lockdown in Austin & Houston, TX. Initially a $250/mo subscription, we are now offering the unlimited laundry service subscription at a discounted rate of $129/mo.
First, you will download The Folde’s app and create an account. From the main menu, navigate to the subscription page. If you want to turn on the monthly subscription, toggle the subscription plan on.
After turning your subscription on, you can schedule a dirty laundry pickup whenever fits your schedule. Order whenever it is convenient for you and order as often as you’d like – it doesn’t change the price! All pickups and deliveries are door-to-door services direct to your apartment’s front door. Delivery times vary based on the laundry services you need: The options here are 1) wash & fold laundry service and 2) dry cleaning service, or 3) both. While the turnaround times vary, all of these are covered in the price of your monthly subscription.
The Folde laundry and dry cleaning bags will be brought to you with your first scheduled pickup. If you’ll be present for pickup, you can stuff them full before handing over to the driver. If you won’t be present for pickup, you can leave the clothes in any other laundry bags or hampers; we will return these with your order and your The Folde laundry bags for filling at your convenience next time. If you need more bags or replacement bags, just ask!
2. Are there limitations or contract commitments?
Nope! There are no limitations or contract commitments for the unlimited laundry service subscription. The subscription can be turned on and off at any time. And, unlimited really means unlimited.
But, you do need to live in an apartment complex to qualify. Homeowners and household tenants can still schedule laundry service as usual – but will not be eligible for the subscription. We’re trying to help by giving a safe and affordable option to those without other options here. You understand, right?
3. How much does the unlimited laundry service subscription cost?
The subscription was initially $250 per month and is now $129 per month. This is billed monthly from the day the subscription is started. With our average order totals for apartment residents averaging $65/per order, the subscription pays for itself after the second order. For more information on the a-la-carte pricing available to non-subscribers, you can see how much you’re saving here.
4. Where can I learn about the unlimited laundry service subscription?
For more information on the apartment laundry service subscriptions, you can ask your neighbors, the leasing office, or contact The Folde’s customer support team. If you’re interested in learning more about treatment and delivery preferences with The Folde, read our “What to Expect” guide to your first order.
A Special Thanks: Big shoutout to our team of apartment-dwelling customer-advocates that helped lobby for and eventually create the subscription. And, we would also like thank the staff at three apartment complexes that have also contributed to the program: The Grove 78704, Hillside Place on Riverside, and Verde Apartments. Without the support and collaboration from you and your teams, this apartment laundry subscription would not be available. Thanks for your help from everyone at The Folde!
