FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q How can I ensure I always get the best results from using Ironing Now?
A Naturally dryed materials are usually the ideal items to get the optimum results from the ironing process.
What is often impossible to work with are materials that have been over tumbled dryed. This can mean the use of excessive heat or time. This coupled with being screwed up will result in creases being literally baked in and therefore impossible to remove without rewashing the item.
Please don’t take offence if we mention this, because our only desire is to ensure your satisfaction and that is unlikely if garments are given to us in this condition

Q What happens if I book a delivery or collection and I’m not there or fail to answer the door etc.?
A We ask that if circumstances change and you are unable to be in for our collection or delivery service that you contact us to cancel and reappoint. Of course sometimes events are beyond your control and we endeavour to be understanding. However, unfortunately, there are occasionally people that have little regard for the fact that our fuel and drivers cost money (our standard delivery service is heavily subsidised) and that wasted journeys impact on all our other clients.Therefore if this becomes a common event we reluctantly reserve the right to refuse to offer our service. We also reserve the right to level an extra charge for every additional collection/delivery we undertake at a realistic commercial rate of no less than £5 per visit.
