All items in your wash & fold order have been kept together during washing and drying, so assembly is a simple manual task.

Items from all other orders are placed on hangers and onto a computerised automatic conveyor assembly system.

The system scans the barcodes that were placed on the items at check in, to assemble them back into orders.

This system results in a less than 0.01% error rate, much more accurate than assembling by hand.
