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 is usually within $10 of the pre-authorized amount.
What is a Credit or Debit Card Pre-Authorization?
Pre–authorization is a way to test if your card is working when it is entered into your profile and our payment processor. 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, resulting in the void of the pre-authorization. An invoice is sent to you via the HappyNest application and your preferred method of notification for your tracking.
What happens if my Credit Card is declined?
When we pick up your items, we will weigh and pre-authorize your card. If the charge is not accepted, we reserve the right to hold off on processing your laundry until it is cleared. You will see notifications of this based on your preferences.
If your items are laundered, we reserve the right to hold your items until your invoice is paid. Once paid, we will drop off when we are next in your area, no more than 3 business days.
How do I cancel my service?
If you signed up for a pickup and need to cancel, please cancel before 4am in your account the morning of your pickup to avoid any missed pick up fees. To cancel same day, click "cancel this pickup" on your homepage, then confirm cancellation on the next screen. If the pickup is canceled after 4am same day, you may be subject to a missed pick up fee.
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 pay together and 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. Learn more about it here: www.happynest.com/referral-program
How do I redeem a promo/coupon code?
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.
Per Bag Pricing
How does per bag pricing work?
Per bag pricing is simple! HappyNest will provide you with 2 navy blue HappyNest bags, sized 22’ x 28’. Simply fill the bags with laundry and schedule a pick up.

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.
What time should I leave my laundry out by?
Our drivers start driving their routes as early as 7 a.m. and may continue making pickups and drop-offs into the evening. On days when you’re expecting a visit from HappyNest, we’ll notify you by email, text, or through the HappyNest app (depending on your preferences) of your driver’s estimated arrival time. Please be aware that our drivers may contact you from their personal cell phone when they arrive.
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.

It's raining outside and I'm afraid my clean laundry will get wet. What should I do?
When the weather’s bad we double-bag your laundry to make sure it’s protected from the elements. We always do our best to protect your laundry, however, we cannot be responsible for laundry that is damaged by the weather after it’s dropped off at your home. Please review our Terms of Service for more details.

Please be sure to include the location to pickup and drop off your laundry in your pickup/drop off instructions in your account.
We also keep an eye on 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?
If you’re going to be away, just log in to your account and place your account on “Vacation Stop” until you return. Please be sure to remove this hold and schedule your pickup at least a day before you need us to arrive!
If there's severe weather and the roads are unsafe will my laundry be returned on time?
However rare this is, it can happen. If there is a severe storm, such as a blizzard or a hurricane, we will return your laundry to you as soon as it’s safe to do so for our drivers. We will keep you updated on any delivery changes via phone, email, or text.

We suggest adding a hook to a wall or fence, or adding an over-the-door hook to your front door to hang items. If no hook is available, we will use our best judgment to keep your clothing safe.

While we’re usually successful at removing stains, we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to get it out. If you can pretreat the stain before putting the garment in the bag, it will increase the odds of success.
