With just a few clicks, Laundrybag promises seamless on-demand laundry service

by | Jan 6, 2017

Running a laundry service can be very lucrative, but most times customers have to put up with several issues during the process. Ranging from unfair pricing policy, missed delivery schedules to the poor condition of services.

On the part of the laundry store, one of their biggest challenge remains how to get the laundry wash to the customer at the quickest uptake. Evidently, it is one thing to have a laundry service running and another to have it duly meet customers need.

Which is why when I first came across Laundrybag my impression of the startup was that it will be the one final stop for all laundry stores in delivery laundry washes to their customers. I probably was way ahead of myself by thinking Laundrybag is an application program interface (API) service where other laundry stores can simply integrate into and solve their problem of last mile delivery.


All the same, Laundrybag service is doing something interesting in its bid to solve laundry service problems. Barely a year old since launching on 1st of March 2016, Laundrybag is an on-demand laundry and dry cleaning mobile app first service that picks up and delivers laundry to the doorstep of customers.


With just a couple of clicks on their mobile phone, Laundrybag mobile app lets its customers order a laundry wash.

“We are giving a new spin to how your laundry needs are taken care of while promising to be always cheaper than the next door laundrette/laundromat,” says the team lead.

Laundrybag is targeted at busy professionals and individuals who values convenience at its best. With several locations across Lagos (Lekki, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Lagos Island, Yaba, Gbagada, Ikeja, and Surulere), the startup is looking to be the Uber for Laundry in Lagos.

“We like to picture our business, not as a tech firm but a “tech-enabled” professional laundry service. Every step in our fulfillment process is entirely technology driven and we are still exploring ways of automating even down to the actual washing/pressing/dry cleaning, process,” the team lead affirms.

The Laundrybag app is available on the playstore.
