We’ve compiled a list of some the latest and greatest on demand apps and how they’re making our lives a lot less stressful.
1. Laundry Run
LaundryRun launched its on demand services in Melbourne aiming to raise millions in funding like similar on demand startups have. The business partners its service with dry cleaners to pick up or drop off people’s laundry at no extra fee. The service currently runs online with a view to launching an app soon. Their service is aimed at busy mums and dads who have little time to do the washing. This is due to the struggle in managing their working lives and picking up children. Pick ups & deliveries happen on Monday and Wednesday from 6-10pm. This startup promises to make the laundry chore a thing of the past.
