Setting the new Gold Standard in work from home businesses through online training excellence

Work from home business ideas

Coming on board as a Laundry Lady or Lad means you will receive ongoing training and support from an established brand – you get the big business backing plus flexibility in your work days and hours.

Laundry Lady is now recognised as Australia’s fastest-growing mobile laundry service. It offers a pickup and delivery laundry service to homes and businesses across its network of independent contractors.

CEO Susan Toft, who founded the business in 2012 with a vision to save people time – one laundry basket at a time, explains that business experience isn’t a prerequisite.

“We offer a streamlined onboarding process where we take applicants through the stages of setting up their business and completing online training modules,” Susan says.

“Customers then book through the Laundry Lady website and pickups are allocated to our team of Laundry Ladies and Lads via location and availability,” she says.

The scaleable, city-by-city approach has seen Laundry Lady establish a strong presence on the Australian business scene, garnering numerous accolades, generating high-profile media attention, and facilitating expansion into New Zealand.

Unlike other costly franchise systems, Laundry Lady’s independent contractor model offers a low-risk, low-cost business opportunity for busy mums, dads, career-changers, or those looking for a profitable side hustle.

“We have a 200-plus strong team of Contractors working Australia wide,” Susan says, adding that this number is continuing to grow weekly. “We have the marketing in place, so you can hit the ground running.”

Due to increased demand for next-day, affordable mobile laundry services in both metro and regional locations, Susan says Laundry Lady is now looking for even more team members.

“Applications are open in all states and territories. You don’t have to love laundry, but you may be seeking a better work-life balance and to earn some additional income.”

With cost of living pressures on the rise, it’s no wonder more and more Aussies are turning to work from home ideas like The Laundry Lady.

Those interested in applying (Ladies AND Lads!) are encouraged to head to Laundry Lady’s Join the Team page.
