At Colvin Cleaners, we get a lot of questions asking us about the price of dry cleaning in Buffalo, NY and more specifically, at our store. So we wanted to take a few minutes to provide a couple of details about how much dry cleaning costs in general and in our company. To see a complete base guide of our prices, you can click here.
PICK UP & DELIVERY SERVICE: Well, you don’t have to worry about this cost, because it’s FREE! With Colvin Cleaners, you will never have to drive to the dry cleaners again. We have dedicated route specialists who will be on your street TWICE A WEEK to pick up and deliver your dry cleaning. This not only saves you gas, but also time! We want our customers to be able to use their time doing the things they love, so that’s why we provide FREE dry cleaning pickup and delivery for 14 areas across WNY.
SHAPE: From blankets, to gowns, to area rugs, to YOU NAME IT, we clean it all! And every item has a specific cost depending on the fabric AND the shape! The shape of the item matters because of how it is dried and finished (pressed, starched, etc.) An item, like a silk woman’s blous
e, may cost more than a regular t-shirt because we would “finish” that item on a special drying machine that makes the details of that type of garment stick out and look beautiful. However, it is also important to note that Colvin Cleaners, unlike other cleaners across the US, does not charge more for women’s clothing vs. men’s clothing. Instead we judge each piece on its simplicity or difficulty to clean!
TAILORING & ALTERATIONS: One part of our dry cleaning prices comes from our tailoring or alterations department. This is because when a garment or piece is being inspected before it is ready to pick up, we may notice a missing button, a ripped hem, or a small hole. Our amazing tailoring team will automatically fix these minor repairs and they will add to a small percentage of the cost of dry cleaning. However, we do this to ensure a superior product that you are happy with! We would never want to return a suit with a missing button, a dress with a zipper that doesn’t work, or a shirt with a hole in it.
All of these factors contribute to the cost of dry cleaning at Colvin Cleaners, and with any other cleaner. But what comes with this cost at Colvin Cleaners is EXTREME customer service, a dedicated community leader in charitable programs, an environmentally-friendly company from beginning to end, and a family-owned experience as you get to work with the 2nd and 3rd generations of the Billoni family who have owned and operated the company since 1931.
