A dry cleaning delivery service can be a great service to start. There are two ways you can go about your business: you can add a dry cleaning delivery to your current business or you can start your own delivery service for dry cleaning that is contracted through a dry cleaning company and you simply operate the delivery part of the business.
There are many reasons to consider opening a business like this, and there are lots of success you can have in doing so. Here are just some of them.
You meet the demand in your area
Nearly every person who has ever had dry cleaning done has considered having their dry cleaning picked up and delivered for an additional fee. Having a service like this available will lead to filling a demand in your area. Reach out to local hotels — where their guests may have dry cleaning needs — and contract with them to be a dry cleaning delivery service. Hotels will be happy to have this type of service to offer their guests and you can feel great about knowing you have consistent work.
You make your dry cleaning company more full-service
If you own and operate a dry cleaning company, you can do your part to make your business more full-service by offering dry cleaning delivery. Your clients will appreciate being able to have their items picked up and delivered and will pay for the additional service. You can outsource the dry cleaning delivery services to another company and still make a profit. If you choose to do your dry cleaning delivery on your own, all you need is a vehicle with insurance to do so.
You reach out to more customers
A dry cleaning service is niche enough on its own, so reaching potential new customers can be somewhat difficult. Adding a new delivery service for dry cleaning to your company can be very beneficial in helping you get new customers. Some customers will only choose a dry cleaning company because they offer delivery, so you can be that dry cleaner for the customers who need you most.
It doesn't take much to add dry cleaning delivery services to your list of offerings. Your clients can appreciate all you do and you can make immediate profits. Forward gas, insurance, and other related expenses to your customers in a flat-rate service charge and have customers pay a per-piece delivery fee or another fee for everything else to make a profit.
