You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account

5 – LAUNDRY TERMS
5.1 Suitability for Laundering by using our services, 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
5.2 Damaged Property
We exercise utmost care in cleaning and processing garments entrusted to us. Nevertheless, we cannot assume responsibility for inherent weaknesses or defects in materials which may result in tears or development of small holes in fabric that are not readily apparent prior to processing. We cannot guarantee against color loss, color bleeding, and shrinkage; or against damage to weak and tender fabrics. Washing Xpress reserves the right to refuse cleaning any garment. Washing Xpress does not guarantee removal of all stains. Any items determined to have been damaged by Washing Xpress will be reimbursed in accordance with the International Fabricare Fair Claims Guide and shall not exceed ten (10) times our charge for processing that garment regardless of brand or condition. Eg: If the total bill amount for laundering 5 garments was Rs. 500, the maximum reimbursement per lost/ damaged garment shall be = 500/5 x 10 Times = Rs. 1,000. Any reimbursement of INR 500 or below shall be directly credited only to the account. Cleaning and drying laundry also creates other risks. We do not individually examine every garment prior to placing it in the regular laundry process. Therefore, if something is “dry-clean only,” or otherwise unsuitable for common washing and drying techniques, please do not include it in the regular 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 as per our pricing. Note that we do not separate clothes according to your instruction, and ask that you do the separation and take responsibility for what’s in each load. Along the same lines, we can’t be held responsible for the re-disposition of colors (aka bleeding) or dimensional changes (aka shrinking or stretching).
5.3 Lost Items
The customer must notify Washing Xpress within 24 hours of receipt of a delivery of any lost items from that particular delivery; failure to do so constitutes waiver of a claim for any lost items from that delivery. Washing Xpress makes its best reasonable effort to track every item that we process and will review all lost items claims on a case by case basis. Washing Xpress is not responsible for your items before we pick them up and after we drop them off. It is our responsibility to ensure the safety of your items during these times. 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 can’t 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’re inside a machine, on the folding table, or in their own laundry cart waiting to be folded. If you do believe you are missing something from your delivery, please notify us within 24 hours of receiving your clean clothes — we are much more likely to find misplaced laundry if it is reported early. Failure to notify within 24 hours of receiving your clean clothes constitutes waiver of any claim for any lost items from that delivery.
5.4 Dry Cleaning/ Wet Cleaning / Premium Laundry Terms
Washing Xpress will inventory all dry cleaning items once they arrive at the facility to be cleaned. This inventory is final, and we will track your items carefully to return them to you. However, any items determined to have been lost by Washing Xpress will be reimbursed in accordance with the International Fabricare Fair Claims Guide and shall not exceed ten (10) times our charge for cleaning that garment regardless of brand or condition. Washing Xpress is not responsible for your items before we pick them up and after we drop them off. It is your responsibility to ensure the safety of your items during these times. Should you find an issue with one of your pieces, please notify us within 24 hours of your delivery.
As with our standard laundry process, Washing Xpress cannot be responsible for wear and tear resulting from cleaning, for very delicate items such as buttons or sequins, or for clothing missing proper care labels.
“Extras” will be charged at the discretion of the dry cleaner, in order to process your garment the best way possible, in increments of Rs. 100 – Rs. 500 upon delivery to the laundry facility. These charges will be added to your final invoice. Items such as leather require longer turnaround times and could take up to two weeks to be returned.
5.5 Scheduling and Payment
You can schedule your appointment through our website by www.washingxpress.com or our Android App or Our iOS App. If you no longer want our service, simply let us know and we will cancel. Cancellation and Refunds shall be governed by our Cancelled and Refunds Policy. Although we truly hope you are satisfied with our services, once we have laundered your clothes, we cannot offer a refund.
To make life simpler, we round to the nearest Kg. when weighing your laundry. The weight as measured by Washing Xpress shall be final and binding on the customer and the final invoice shall be raised based on the weight as measured by Washing Xpress. Of course we don’t anticipate having any problems with our customers refusing to pay, but just in case, we reserve the right to hold your laundry hostage until we are paid in full.
5.6 Pick-up, Delivery Scheduling and Turnaround Time
Service days and turnaround time may vary by location or overload of work or any other special occasions. Washing Xpress will make its best reasonable effort to adhere to our service schedule; however, we do not guarantee turnaround times and assume no responsibility for any damages that may occur due to a delay in service. 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 can’t 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 house for a delivery and you have additional dirty laundry that you would like to be picked up, please schedule an additional pickup online or notify Customer Care at least 2 hours before your scheduled service. A No Show is when we show up to your door, but you and your laundry aren’t around. In the case of a No Show, we reserve the right to charge a Rs.50 Logistic Fee. Keep in mind, there’s no fee if you cancel or reschedule more than 2 hours before the start of your delivery window. Washing Xpress pick-up & delivery service will pick-up the Customer’s laundry bag upon the Customer’s request. Washing Xpress Pickup & Delivery Service will not take place on company holidays. Washing Xpress pick-up & delivery service reserves the right to determine the pick-up and drop-off times at its own discretion and reserves the right to reschedule such times upon prior notice to Customer.
5.7 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.
We use Seitz Germany (Liquid Detergents), Comfort/Seitz Fabric Conditioner, Vanish/Seitz/Diversy Fabric Stain Remover, Rin Ala Fabric Whitener, Dettol Antiseptic Liquid and Seitz Germany laundry detergents for all our personal laundry customers in. However, we sometimes do wash clothes in shared washing machines where other detergents may have been used, and it is possible that small amounts of other detergents, which may not be hypoallergenic, may not be completely rinsed out of these washing machines due to standard machine cycle.
5.9 Loose Items
Although, we try as hard as possible track such items with the help of our most advanced bar code identification technology, we are not responsible for loose items such as jewelry, watches, cash, detachable buttons, cufflinks, etc. We request that customers empty pockets prior to leaving items with us. Customer is responsible for any and all damage caused by any items (lipstick, Gum, Pens, etc.) left in its clothing or in the bags that cause any damage to the clothing, cleaning machines, or anything else.
5.10 Personal Property
Any personal property placed in the store that appears to have value will be removed by Washing Xpress and stored for Maximum 15 days. If items are unclaimed after 15 days, all property will be donated to charity.
5.11 Re-Processing Policy
The re-processing only applies to individual items which have been cleaned by Washing Xpress and the original cleaning ticket must be attached. Please note it is not always possible to remove stains. If we cannot remove a stain customers will be informed according to the ticket which is attached to their items. In this instance, we are not able to offer a complimentary re-clean.
6 - OPTIONAL TOOLS
6.1 We may provide you with access to third-party tools which are different payment gateways over which we neither monitor nor have any control nor input.
