DUFL allows frequent business travelers to eliminate the time spent laundering clothes, packing bags and lugging suitcases through airports by storing, laundering, packing and transporting users´ business wardrobes to and from their destination. That means weary business travelers can spend more time with their families at home or with clients when they are on the road.

DUFL is available for travel within the United States and also delivers to international business hubs in Canada, European Union countries, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Sydney and more.

To get started, users download the DUFL app, register for the service and request a welcome kit, which includes a DUFL suitcase. Users fill the suitcase with all the items they normally take on the road and then have it picked up and shipped to the DUFL warehouse, where items are inventoried, cleaned, photographed and stored in the user´s DUFL virtual closet.

When customers are gearing up for a business trip, they can use the DUFL app to select which clothes they want to bring from their virtual DUFL closet, enter a destination and arrival date, and DUFL will take care of the rest, ensuring the customer´s DUFL suitcase is waiting at the hotel when the customer arrives.

When it´s time to go home, customers simply schedule a pickup and leave the bag at the hotel´s front desk, traveling home luggage-free.
