How Does Dry Clean Delivery Work?


Dry clean delivery is becoming an increasingly popular service in metropolitan areas like NYC, where people hardly have the time to take their clothing to the cleaners, let alone a cup of coffee. In this article, we explain exactly how dry clean delivery services work and the pros and cons of using different services.


Pick up and Delivery: How does it work?

Dry clean delivery is an extremely simple process. The difference between the various options actually lies in the service and execution. If you are interested in scheduling a dry clean delivery, you might have read some opposing recommendations, depending on the service you choose.

At Meurice Garment Care, the process involves two short steps that can be completed in less than a minute. The first step is registering an account. The second step is selecting a convenient time for our valet to come collect your clothing. That’s it, your clothing will be dropped off back to you in one week, with a signature Meurice finish.


What Are The Benefits Of Dry Clean Delivery?

New York City is a busy place, and our clients like to save time whenever they can. If you live in an apartment building, you can leave your clothing with your reception desk on your way out, or organize a front-door pick up at your home.

At Meurice Garment Care, we use a simple text & email system that notifies our customers whenever their orders or pick ups are scheduled. Customers can not only send us their garments, but also any tailoring or alteration items that need to be fitted. This saves you from having to make multiple trips to the cleaner. 

The other reason our clients love using our dry clean delivery service is that they no longer have to carry their garments around the city. During the winter and rainy seasons, it’s extremely convenient to have a valet come pick up your clothing while you relax in the comfort of your home. In the summer, it's just as satisfying to schedule a pick up and not have to sweat the effort.


How To Find The Best Dry Clean Delivery Service

A. Quality-control

The most common problem with dry clean delivery services is lost or damaged clothes. The primary reason for this is that nearly every dry clean delivery service in New York actually outsources their work to local cleaners.

This means that their quality is significantly lower, and that it is nearly impossible to establish a consistent level of service. Some cleaners are better than others, and it seems unfair to us that the customer should pay the same amount as another customer whose clothing is being cleaned by a better dry cleaner.

Unlike the startup delivery businesses today with little to no experience in actual dry cleaning, Meurice Garment Care has been a prominent figure in the dry cleaning industry for over two generations. We've worked hard for over 65 years to refine our service and develop a system of consistent and exceptional service.

B. Clothing-tracking

Because startup services use so many different dry cleaners for their cleaning, it becomes exponentially more difficult to keep track of customers’ clothing and ensure nothing is lost.

Essentially, your clothing is picked up and dropped off at any number of cleaners across NYC, and then pick them up again days later. Because there are so many different cleaners involved, it is extremely difficult to maintain quality control and consistency. Any cleaner could end up with your clothing and it would nearly impossible for the provider to locate your item.

In contrast, at Meurice, each item is individually tagged with a tiny code that is permanently embedded onto the inside of your clothing. All clothing is cleaned and processed within a single location, which means that every item is securely accounted for.


How much does it cost to sign up?

At Meurice, our dry clean delivery service is completely complimentary.
