Terms & Conditions

By using our equipment, WiFi or by booking a service with Soap Queens, you agree to the following Terms and Conditions:

1. Self-Service Laundromat Use

 

When using this option in-store, we do ask that you take care in understanding and checking each garment washing instructions and the removal of all personal items.  We will not be liable for damage to items you wash in our machines. For garments that need to be specially treated i.e. leather, silk, cashmere, fur, velvet and other delicate garments, please ensure that these items can be machine washed and tumble dried. Please be courteous at all times to your fellow laundromat users and remove your items as soon as your cycle is finished.  Please leave the laundromat in a clean and tidy manner and use the on-site mop, broom and cloths located in the customer cleaning cupboard provided to clean up any mess made.  Please use the bin located in store to dispose of any rubbish.  Late at night we ask you leave in a quiet manner to avoid disturbing nearby residents as this is a residential area so please consider the nearby neighbours.  Please note that the store will automatically lock at 11pm, so please keep this in mind when loading machines late at night.  Ensure you leave enough time for your load to finish prior to closing time.  For your security we have monitored security and have installed CCTV cameras and alarms for both your safety, and the security of the laundromat.

 

Pet Dedicated Washer & Dryer - All Pet items must be placed in the clearly marked/signed dedicated pet washer or dryer and MUST NOT be placed in any other machine.  It is prohibited by law to use the washing machines and dryers not specifically allocated to pet washing items.  

2. Cleaning of Garments

We have installed the latest technology with our Washing Machines & Dryers to give us the best chance to remove even the most stubborn stains. However we can not guarantee that all stains will be removed from your garments.  Please be sure to pre-treat any stains you have had trouble with removing yourself as we offer standard wash, dry & fold service only and not a dry cleaning service.

3. Collection of Garments

Drop & Go Lockers - Garments must be collected within 12 hours of the SMS notification advising that garments are ready for collection from our Drop & Go Lockers.   After this time staff may remove the garments and lock in the safe service area.  Garments can then be collected when an attendant is next on-site.

Self Service - Garments left in a machine may be removed after 30min by an attendant if unattended.  After this time staff may remove the garments and lock in the safe service area.  Garments can then be collected when an attendant is next on-site.

Please remove your garments from the machines in a timely manner once the cycle has finished to avoid other customers doing so on your behalf.  We cannot control what the customers choose to do with your garments if they are left unattended and a machine is needed.  

If items are abandoned for 30 days or more, we shall not be held liable for any loss that you may suffer in such an event.  After 30 Days abandoned items and lost property will be donated to the Red Cross or other charity drop off points.

4. Loss of Garments

We exercise the utmost care in processing garments received to avoid misplacement or loss of items. Your laundry bags are deposited directly into the machines and then each order is folded separately kept together making sure all items are returned back to you.  We have CCTV technology to help us determine any loss in a quick and timely manner through each of our workflow processes.  In the instances where items may be misplaced or lost, we ask that you advise us of any discrepancy within 24 hours of receipt of your garments so that we may investigate the matter with our CCTV cameras and make a determination. No claims for damages will be recognised unless you advise us of the same within 24 hours of collecting the garments.

Our liability with respect to any lost item shall not exceed ten (10) times our charge for cleaning that garment regardless of brand or condition. In any event this is disputed, the International Fair Claims guide will be used to determine the amount of compensation claimed.

5. Personal Items

Please check all of your garments for pens, money, jewellery or other valuables prior to handover or self serve use of our machines. Be especially careful of leaving cigarette lighters and other dangerous flammable Items inside garments that may harm not only your items but our equipment during a wash or dry cycle.  We cannot be held liable for the loss of any such articles or the damage it may cause your garments.  Damage to our machines may result in repair costs being handed back to the customer.  A lost property box is held in our service office so please feel free to contact our office or talk to our attendant on-site if you have lost an item.  Any lost property items not claimed within 30 days will be donated to the Red Cross.

6. Pickup & Delivery Service

Soap Queens reserves the right to determine the pickup and delivery times at its own discretion and reserves the right to reschedule such times upon prior notice to the customer.

Pickup - Customers must ensure that laundry is ready for pickup on the booked pickup date and time by either (1) someone being home at the time of booked pickup date and time, or (2) laundry is placed outside ready for collection (at customers own risk) at the booked pickup date and time.  Soap Queens accept no responsibility for laundry being left unattended at the customers address.  Failure to have laundry ready for pickup may result in a missed collection fee.  

Delivery - Customers must be home to receive delivery of clean laundry and provide signature upon receiving delivery.  If nobody is at the agreed upon address at the booked date and time, this may incur a missed delivery fee, unless Authority To Leave permission has been given by the customer in writing (by way of email or SMS) prior to delivery.  If given Authority To Leave permission, Soap Queens will take a photo as Proof Of Delivery.  Soap Queens will accept no responsibility (in cases of weather, theft, damage or otherwise) for customers laundry being left unattended.

7. Garment Damage & Suitability of Laundering

We exercise utmost care in cleaning and processing garments entrusted to us and use such processes which, in our opinion, are best suited whilst using industrial washing & tumble drying machines. 

Wash, Dry and Fold Orders – We will not be liable for damage to items as we wash by the load and do not inspect the care labels of each garment. For garments that need to be specially treated i.e. leather, silk, cashmere, fur, velvet and other delicate garments, please ensure that these items can be machine washed and tumble dried. We cannot assume responsibility for inherent weaknesses or defects in materials which may result in tears or the development of small holes in fabrics prior to cleaning. In laundering we can not guarantee against colour loss, colour bleeding, and shrinkage or against damage to weak and tender fabrics.  We will empty the bags directly into the machines and no checking or sorting will take place and is the responsibility of the customer prior to hand over.  Garments are cleaned entirely at your own risk, and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for any damage or fading as a result of the industrial cleaning process.  Laundry items are tagged by the load and not individually tagged, therefore, we cannot accept any liability for missing items. Mixed whites & coloured loads are at your own risk and we will not be liable for the customers decision to mix whites and colours loads in the one laundry bag.  Please understand that 1 laundry bag = 1 load

8. Payment Terms for Wash, Dry & Fold Service

All quoted prices are inclusive of GST and are subject to change without notice.

All payments to be received prior to goods being returned to the customer. Your card will be processed upon completion of our service prior to delivery/deposit back into lockers.
