Do I need to do anything after I sign up?
The only things you need to do between now and Laundry Nirvana are:
1. Make sure you have “Notifications” switched on in your account so you can receive reminders and alerts as per your preference.
2. Leave your laundry out on the day of pickup. A Welcome Kit will be mailed to your residence. Enclosed in the kit is a blue laundry bag with a simple instruction guide. All you have to do is fill the bag and enjoy your newfound free time!
In case you don't receive your Welcome Kit before the day of pickup, you can leave your laundry out in any bag (yes, trash bags work too). Simply mark or tag the bag as “For HappyNest” so we can identify it.
3. Your clothes will be returned to you the very next day. Put them in your closet(s) and forget about having to do laundry...ever again.
What's in the Welcome Kit?
Our Welcome Kit consists of one big, blue HappyNest branded laundry bag, big enough for 40 pounds of your washable items, and a welcome card with get started instructions. If an additional laundry bag is needed, please call or text HappyNest customer service at 855-335-9274.
What is the turnaround-time?
Your perfectly washed and folded clothes will be returned to you the day after we pick them up.
Can I get texts as well as, or instead of, emails?
Absolutely. Just log into your account and adjust your notification settings.
Is there any contract or long-term commitment?
None whatsoever. You can cancel or suspend your account at any time.
How much does your service cost?

We bill your credit or debit card directly. We will email you a detailed invoice each time your card is billed. You can also receive invoice totals by text.
Which credit cards do you accept?

Why can't I schedule a pickup?

How do I change my billing?
To update your credit card, log into your account, under billing information select “update credit card information,” enter new credit card information.
How much was I billed?
The invoice for your most recent laundry pickup and delivery will be updated one day after your drop-off and the amount will be debited from your account within the next two days.
To view all your invoices and their status:
1. Log into your HappyNest account
2. Click on Invoices on the main menu to see a history of all your invoices to date.
You can also receive your invoice totals by Text. Simply make sure you’ve chosen that option under notification preferences.
Why Does HappyNest Pre-Authorize My Order?
As a HappyNest customer, before we begin washing your laundry, we will place a hold on your credit or debit card for the estimated total of your order. This pre-authorization is an estimate and will be based on the total weight of your laundry. The estimate will show on your bank statement as a pending charge. Once your HappyNest laundry is washed, dried, folded and ready to come home to you, we’ll bill your card for the final order total, thereby releasing the pending charge. Unless your order includes large items that are typically billed on a per-piece basis (comforters, pillows, etc.), your final invoice will usually be less than the pre-authorized amount.
What is a Credit or Debit Card Pre-Authorization?
Pre–authorization is a way to test if your card “works” when it is entered into your profile and auth.net. This encompasses a few things: available funds, address match and whether the card is active. The process of credit and debit card pre–authorization is as follows: A transaction is initiated once your laundry is weighed.
A pre-authorization (also “pre-auth” or “authorization hold”) is a temporary hold on your debit or credit card that typically lasts five days or less. Your bank makes that determination, not HappyNest, or until the post-authorization (or “settlement”) comes through. In the case of HappyNest, once your laundry is returned, the card is charged for the amount of our service. An invoice is sent to you via the HappyNest application for your tracking.
Can You Give Me Another Example?
Another example can be explained with a typical restaurant transaction. If an individual chooses to spend $12 for a meal, the server does not know how much of a tip may be applied. The restaurant’s credit card terminal is typically set to authorize a larger amount than the cost of the meal, such as 20%. However, the transaction will settle for the actual total including the actual tip written on the receipt.
If you have any questions, please chat with our Customer Service team using the pop-up chat box on our www.happynest.com website.
How do I cancel my service?
If you signed up for a pickup and need to cancel please cancel before 6am in your account the morning of your pickup, if it is after 6 am please contact customer service. If you want to stop your weekly service, you can place your account on hold, we will not come by until you remove the hold.
Can my roommate and I share an account?
Sure, but for your convenience we highly recommend you each sign up for your own account. If you do decide to share an account, you will have to separate your laundry upon its return.
Do you have a referral program?
Yes we do! All customers have a unique referral code to give out. When someone uses your code they receive a $25 credit and once they use the service you will receive a $25 credit on your account.
How do I redeem a promo/coupon code?
In order to add a coupon/promo code, it must be your first pickup, you will be prompted on the billing page to enter the code. If you have additional questions please reach out to customer service 855-335-9274.
Do you have gift cards?
What if I have large bedding items? Are they charged by the pound?
Large items like comforters, pillows, and bedspreads are removed before your laundry is weighed and then billed at a per-piece rate. To check bedding prices, enter your ZIP Code.

Curious about the status of your laundry?
Just log into your account through the HappyNest website or app to find out when you can expect our driver to arrive, if your clothes have been picked up or returned – and at what time – and even if they’re waiting to be washed, in the wash, or folded, packaged and ready to come home.
Where is my driver?
“The driver came earlier than my time window and I had not put my laundry out!”
“I’ve left my laundry out and it has not yet been picked up”
“Are you still picking up my laundry today?”
What’s happening behind the scenes:
Our drivers do their best to stick to the time windows they share with you before they hit the road. However, sometimes they encounter situations such as traffic, last-minute cancellations, or additions to their routes which could cause a deviation from the time window given to you.
We understand this is inconvenient for you. The uncertainty about “when” your laundry will be picked up or dropped off is stressful for you and for HappyNest!
What we’re doing about it:
HappyNest will be releasing a software update to provide real-time information on where your driver is on their route. Think “Uber”-like updates for your laundry pickup and delivery!
What you can do in the meanwhile:
Please update the pickup/delivery instructions on your account to address any concerns you might have about pickup/delivery timing.
I forgot to leave my laundry out on my scheduled pickup day. What should I do?
HappyNest has incorporated email and text reminder tools in its software to help you remember your laundry pickup day. However, if you do forget to leave your laundry out, we will charge a missed pickup fee to cover the cost of a driver going to your home or business. Missed pickup fees depend on the HappyNest location you are serviced by.
To Avoid Missed Pickup Fees: Please cancel the pickup on your account by 4 am ET the day of your scheduled pickup.

Most customers have us leave their laundry on a front or back porch, in a garage or with their building manager. We also use common sense and watch the weather. If a hurricane or blizzard is coming, we’ll contact you and make alternate plans.
Can I put my pickups on hold while I'm on vacation or out of town?

I received a bag of laundry that is not mine, what do I do?
How can I tip my HappyNest Driver?
Our HappyNest drivers work very hard to ensure your laundry is picked up and delivered safely and conveniently back to you.
We’ve heard from many satisfied HappyNesters that they appreciate the service and would like to tip the driver. If you’d like to leave them a tip after your HappyNest laundry delivery, make sure that the option for the “Popup” is selected in your account.
Each time your driver drops off your laundry you’ll receive a reminder to leave a tip - up to five dollars. The driver will receive the gratuity that same day.
