These people are just unrealistic users, they will text you whilst driving and expect you to answer immediately. They direct you to drive into congestion charge zone and then dispute it even though you have screenshot evidence. You will do wastage mileages because they direct you back to an area you could have covered first time round. Difficult to contact group after 10pm(they all probably in bed) for advice whilst you're still out delivering, what company expects you to be looking for delivery address at midnight. They have no loyalty to workers, they terminate contracts without notification and make up flimsy reasons. Don't rely on this company for long term employment. They charge you for equipment, which company charges you £10 for hi-vis even though you are promoting their name free. Little wonder why facility they use for processing makes attempts to snatch customers from them.
Pros
Nothing is free at Laundryheap
Cons
Job insecurity, poor human resources, constant payment dispute, poor management

I worked here a few months back and to be honest they always push more work loads on you knowing you’ll go over your pay time. They expect you to do these huge workloads for free dwindling your wage down to near £7ph on most days and you pay for your fuel out of that as their fuel payment is only a mere 15p per mile whereas other more reputable delivery companies pay at least £1 per mile as standard.Their route planners are based all the way in India who clearly don’t understand distances, traffic or roadworks here or that there’s more 20 mph zones in London since 2019 making delivery times between each drop mostly well over 30 mins each.They promise a bonus of £4 per drop if you’re delivering over 20 items in 5 hours but give you just below so you never really get that bonus.Distance is a big issue here as you’ll be expected to drive near 80 to well over 100 miles within a 5 hour shift with around 18/19 stops and often the stops are miles apart from each other.They expect you to deliver or pick items well after 10pm often 11pm and beyond and clients aren’t very happy with the late visits and are often agitated and very unhappy with you arriving so late at night, again this comes down to very poor management and the fact that the teams in India clearly don’t understand that people in uk do not like to open doors to people late at night after 9/10pm onwards, management need to seriously look into this as it is a general safety issue.The facilities where you’re made to pick up are a total mess with zero organisation and nothing to help you to make it easier, you’re made to - more...

At first they give your some high figures of income that you can achieve. But never it’s achievable. Iv met around 25 drivers across both their platform and one thing is each driver has said... no one knows the exact calculations of what your earning. Some days it’s better staying at home rather to spend money and time of fuel. What ever they promise you, deduct 35-45% That’s what you will be getting. It’s totally misleading and their management is incredibly the worst Iv come across.
Pros
If it’s your first ever job and not fussed about pay.
Cons
They dont pay accordingly, 5 Staff members including management have lied openly.!!

To be quiet frank, LH is one of the most laid back, easy going company to work for. I worked for Laundryheap for about 6 months until I was facing some personal hardships at home which in return had management no other option but to give me the boot. On the upside of things, I liked working for LH as the take home salary for me was superb as I would earn up to £800 to £1,050 in a week (working 5- 6 days). Management we're not too hard and would not dictate what drivers should do, as you would be self employed and your route would be made for you by the morning. As being self employed, I would be able to pick and choose the days of work in advance which in return, would be able to plan my weeks appropriately in advance. Downsides I would give is if you're facing any hardships (home or wherever), management won't pull you aside to have a chat or a meeting about the issues you're facing, nor give you an insight where you're slacking at, No warnings, they'll just give you the boot which is very unfortunate as most companies will actually take time with you to discuss your issues and find a solution to work around them, see if they can help in any way. Sometimes I would do a 14 hour shift, get home at around 2am and be expected to be up at 7am to start my shift at around 9am, which was a nightmare as in the morning I would've had to drop my daughter off to the minders and get prepared for my day. All in all, LH is a great company to work for as your day to day job is usually fairly easy, theres never a dull day at work as you get to meet new people, build friendly relationships - more...

If you are looking for a freezing place where to spent 10h per day five days per week and you like to wash toilets after third world driver's is the right place. If you have no dignity and you are familiar to lie your colleagues is brilliant. They put you to lie the workers at hirings about salary and dates of payments its your dream job. lies t

I applied and got a call in under a day. They invited me to a session the day after (which was so much quicker than expected). I ended up working in under 48 hours - much quicker than some other companies I've worked for. Early days, but good so far! :)

Great company to work for. A few things to be improved, but that's to be expected given they're young. If I offer feedback, I know its taken seriously and that they're eager to help. I recommend Laundryheap.

Decent job for extra hours of work, however in terms of clarity and what the job entails; the company needs to-do more work. Self-employed role questionable ( pick your shift, provide your own van but they dictate your route)
Pros
Cancel shift with 24hrs notice
Cons
Poor management, not sustainable job

Hi There, Thank you for the feedback. We're sorry to hear that you've been frustrated with out platform, however, we are intending on making some changes on order to better support our fleet of couriers. Some things we have or will do are:1) Our Fleet Team is under new management 2) We're moving to a slot selection system, rather than slot allocation (as at current)3) We're currently in the process of a pay review to ensure we're paying our couriers a fair amount 4) We're in the process of changing our per task payment system to give greater transparency5) We're in the process of re-designing our invoice system to reflect that greater transparencyWith respect to the "dictating your route", we have a team who go through each zone trying to optimise the route based on delivery windows and distance to next job in an attempt to reduce the time spent completing it (and making our courier's lives easier). When you're completing a slot, if you feel the route is incorrect or could be improved, we welcome you to contact our Live Support Team who may be able to make changes. Once again, thank you for getting in touch! We welcome you to discuss this feedback in more depth with us, so please feel free to get in touch with us via scout@laundryheap.com. Thanks, Quaid!

Support and communication is done over email or a whatsapp group with people from uk or India depending on time or day, work is not consistent, I went 3 weeks without a single shift and was told it's because AM blocks are rare but 3weeks before that and after that they had no issues giving me work. Pay is discret with a very bad breakdown report system were its unclear how much your actually getting paid per task as you do not get paid by the hour but per task. They do not tell you if you got a bonus or a penalty charge. You have to somehow work this out on your own. Also they constantly add more tasks to your route as your working, sometimes 10 to 15miles away from your current location and apperently your the only driver in the whole of London that can pick it up.... Alot of improving is required from this company as it's not structured very well for the uk market.
Pros
Sometimes you can finish work in 2 to 3hrs
Cons
Everything else.

You need to pay your congestion charge by yourself. the first 3 hours training is unpaid for free. the person who is interviewing drivers is impolite, does not respect other (rude) all this for £12 per hours (you and your insurance, road tax, congestion charges) for £12/hour Good luck
