How to Start a Diaper Service

Have you ever considered

Starting a Diaper Service?

Diaper Delivery Service Is a Modern and Viable Business Opportunity

  • Minimal start-up costs
  • Serves environmentally-conscious consumers who make up an ever-growing percentage of our population
  • Suited to multiple income streams
  • Operational on large or small scale–from commercial laundry facility or home
  • Available for sole proprietor, LLC, or corporate ownership

How to Start

Understand the Industry

  • Peruse diaper service websites
  • Talk to diaper service operators (DSOs)

Adhere to the Law

  • State
  • County
  • Local

Develop Your Plan

  • Business
  • Marketing
  • Financial

Prepare for Operations

Resources specific to starting and operating a diaper service are minimal:

  • The Entrepreneur Group’s 1992 Business Start-Up Guide for Diaper Service is out of print
  • The National Association of Diaper Services (NADS) Start-Up Kit is no longer available
  • The Real Diaper Industry offers an updated and more useful kit–for $400
  • Diaper Service Operators (DSOs) have limited availability to answer questions–they’re busy running their operations

I know, because I was one of those DSOs, and I spent a lot of time over the years answering the same questions over and over again.  Then I got the bright idea to take those topics and put them in book form.

As I wrote, I kept thinking of more great topics to include.  Before long, the book was over 70 pages long, including an extensive list of resources.

After several years and an updated edition, it is still accurate to say that it’s the only manual of its kind available today–and it’s ONE TENTH the price of the RDI kit. It is a comprehensive guide designed to help you plan and implement your business, whether you want to start a full-service laundry facility or take wash into your home.

It includes topics such as:

  • Research Your Options
  • Advertising and Marketing Your Business
  • How to Start
  • Day to Day Operations
  • Expanding Your Business
  • Other Considerations
  • Typical Customer Questions
  • and an Extensive Resource List
