WHO I AM
Hi, I’m Jane Winchester, Founder and Owner of Adelaide Hills Ironing Service. I resigned from paid employment due to a health diagnosis.
WHY I DO IT
After rest, recovery and reflection, the desire was strong to start a small business that was part-time, something that helped my local community. After research I discovered the need for a professional ironing business and the decision was made to start up Adelaide Hills Ironing Service in 2012.
I advertised locally and bought better equipment. My health continued to improve so I registered the business and formed a Facebook page, then the customer numbers rapidly increased, and I was soon working more than just a few hours a week.
My focus now is helping as many people as possible in the Adelaide Hills and Mt Barker districts gain more time in the day, so that when you get home from a busy day at work, there is one less chore to do.
WHAT I DO
Adelaide Hills Ironing Service is the only professional ironing business in the hills. Our motto is “Here to help you”. You get free pick-up & delivery to your door in our customised van, and convenient, reliable service.
We iron all items not including bed sheets and quilt covers. If you would like help to catch up, occasional or regular service, we can help you.
Imagine receiving a message saying “it’s ironing day” knowing that you don’t have to do it! Some of our customers ask us to send one as a reminder to put their basket out.
Our current rounds cover most areas of the Adelaide Hills and Mt Barker areas including Piccadilly, Stirling, Crafers, Wistow, Longwood and Onkaparinga Valley, call us to arrange to come to you.
As our business has grown we have invested in steam systems, to ensure your laundry is returned to you looking its best, smelling fresh and germ-free. It is especially important with pillow-slips, hankies, tea-towels and other items from your linen cupboard.
Our irons are safe to use on all fabrics including silk and wool.
I was very happy with the service. It’s a great relief to find a local service provider who can take care of doing a job for me that would take me several hours of frustration to do myself, especially when I could be spending that time with my family.
I have just commenced using Adelaide Hills Ironing Serv ice as I was becoming extremely frustrated working six days a week and then spending half a day ironing, it has probably taken me over a year to stop procrastinating and outsource my ironing, now I wish I had done it a year ago! I am very impressed with the quality of ironing and the proffesionalism of the services offered. I would highly recommend their services to anyone who is frustrated like me.
I have been sending my ironing to Jane for the past few months and I have to say that I have never been disappointed. I am quite particular with my ironing and to find an ironing service that meets my requirements has been fantastic. Working from home, my time is of the essence and the fact that Jane will both pick up and delivery is absolutely one of my biggest time savers. Jane’s turn-around time is exceptional and she will go above and beyond for her customers. Finding Jane has been like finding a spare set of hands – I couldn’t recommend her more highly.
My ironing used to sit in a huge pile waiting to be done, yet another chore which was being neglected. Finding Adelaide Hills Ironing Service has been a God-send; a reliable, value for money service which means that there is one less item on my “to do” list. The day-to-day running of our household has been helped greatly by having the ironing “taken care of”. No more last minute pressing a shirt before work! I can’t speak highly enough of the fantastic service Jane provides.
Flying interstate a lot means my ironing builds up to the point where it needs some real time and effort to get the wardrobe back into shape for the next trip. Adelaide Hills Ironing meets this need every time, with friendly and efficient service. I can keep going without getting bogged down in the domestics.
We love the ironing service provided by Jane at Adelaide Hills Ironing Service. We are very busy people so we really appreciate the drop off and pick up service. It is a huge help to us and everything is returned beautifully ironed. An excellent service we are thrilled to have found. Thank you, Jane!
We love Jane at Adelaide Hills Ironing! She is like one of Santa’s elves! We go to work leaving behind wrinkled clothes, and when we get home, the clothes have been ironed perfectly. She always delivers on time. She’s the best!
