    Laundry Operations Guidelines

    Customer satisfaction is GoodWork’s first priority. In fact, we treat your laundry as if it were our own, however we still need to agree to some rules to ensure that there are no misunderstandings about GoodWork Laundry Services (referred to as "we," "us," "our", or "GoodWork Laundry"). By using our service, you acknowledge and accept the following Terms and Conditions.

    Wash-and-Fold Laundry Terms

    1. Suitability for Laundering
    By using our service, you agree that your clothes are suitable to be washed in water, on a normal cycle, and dried using heat in a tumble dryer. We cannot be responsible for any damage to clothing that is not suitable for this standard laundering process. Similarly, we reserve the right to refuse to service items that we feel will be hazardous to our staff, such as items heavily soiled with human or animal waste. This is for the health and safety of our team.

    2. Damaged Laundry
    We will do everything we can to avoid damaging your laundry. Unfortunately there are limitations to what we can do. For example, we do not promise to check your pockets to see if you have left anything in them. Therefore, we cannot be held responsible if something left in your laundry (like lipstick, chewing gum, or a pen) causes any damage. Similarly, if you call and tell us that you left your favorite bracelet, or anything else, in your pocket, we cannot guarantee that we will find or return it.

    All laundering processes, regardless of how gentle, cause normal wear and tear on clothing. As a result, we cannot be responsible for any wear and tear of laundry, including loss of buttons, fading, fatiguing, holes, or abrasions. Similarly, we reserve the right to decline cleaning any particular piece of laundry if we think it will lead to trouble.

    Cleaning and drying laundry also creates other risks. We do not individually examine every garment prior to placing it in the laundry. Therefore, if something is "dry-clean only," or otherwise unsuitable for common washing and drying techniques, please do not include it in the laundry you give to us.

    We wash all items together as our standard procedure. But if you divide your clothes into two separate bags before your pick-up, we can run two separate loads. This incurs a Separate Load Charge (presently at P125). Note that we do not separate clothes at the laundry shop; we ask that you do the separation before giving the clothes to our rider and take responsibility for what is in each load. Along the same lines, we cannot be held responsible for any bleeding of colors or dimensional changes (shrinking or stretching).

    3. Lost Laundry
    We would love to be able to inventory every piece of laundry you give us. Unfortunately, it is cost-prohibitive for us to do so. As a result we cannot be held responsible for any lost laundry; we simply have no efficient way of verifying that we actually received any particular piece of laundry in the first place.

    Rest assured though, we carefully track your clothes. For instance, we tag all our bundles with your name, and your clothes are never loose in our facility unless they are inside a machine, on the folding table, or in their own laundry cart waiting to be folded.

    If Customers have concerns about any lost or damaged clothing, they must notify us within 36 hours of receiving returned clothes in order to receive support from GoodWork’s operations team.

    4. Pick-up and Delivery
    Scheduling GoodWork Laundry provides pick-up and delivery service on motorcycles. There are, however, circumstances when we may be unable to use motorcycles to complete deliveries (like rain, or all of our delivery riders simultaneously having their motorcycles breaking down). Therefore, we reserve the right to pick-up and deliver your laundry using more conventional methods if necessary.

    We will do our best to pick-up your laundry at the agreed upon time. We know that we won't have very many customers if we are late. That being said, we cannot be held accountable if we are late for unforeseen circumstances. Similarly, we hope that you will strive to be on-time for our deliveries. If you do miss a pick-up or delivery, we will try to coordinate an alternate time as soon as possible.

    To prevent laundry errors, all services must be tied to an appointment. If we are coming to your residence for a delivery and you have additional dirty laundry that you would like to be picked up, please schedule an additional pickup online or through our app.

    A No-Show is when we show up to your door, but you and your laundry are not around. In the case of a No-Show, we reserve the right to mark the pick up as cancelled.

    5. Unattended Pick-up and Delivery
    If you request that we leave your laundry unattended (e.g., on your porch, in a hallway, or in your foyer) or with a third party (e.g., with a doorman or a neighbor), we are not responsible for your laundry before we have picked it up or after we have dropped it off. You also agree that our records of pick-up and drop-off times are true and accurate.

    6. Miscellaneous
    As our business changes, we may want to modify some of the terms in these terms. Therefore, we encourage you to check back frequently to familiarize yourself with any changes.
