While very high volume business customers including B&Bs and other examples sited on our business customer page may discuss customized rates with us, we will unfortunately be increasing our price per pound rate for all other customers effective beginning with pickups on July 20, 2022. The per pound rate will be increased from $1.99 to $2.19 for weekly or regularly scheduled every other week customers and from $2.34 to $2.49 for by request customers.
We aspire to be here to help people trade some amount of money for the benefits of more quality free time to invest in any of family time, recreation, or whatever higher level financial return can come from time put to something other than the chore of doing laundry. And, we are committed to fulfilling on the mission statement at the bottom of the home page of our website.
To do both of those in a time of significantly higher costs across the board in what was already a relatively low operating margin business, we do need to pass on these increased costs.
Importantly, one of the many increased costs we are facing is drought and climate change related water cost increases, which people who do their laundry at home and pay their own water bill will be facing directly, even if they choose to do their own laundry.
Even after this increase, our pricing is still on par with the cost of taking your time to drop laundry off without the inclusion of pickup and delivery.
So, we hope that our present and future customers will both join in continuing to appreciate the time saving benefits of the service we provide.
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to continuing to serve you in the future.
The Marin Wash and Fold Team
