Because we couldn't move the conventional washing machines from the basement, we now have a portable solution you can take with you wherever you go.

Mobile and small washing machines function perfectly like their predecessors and actually need less effort to work and maintain them, but work with smaller loads. These machines are compact, lightweight, easy to move and take less space than conventional machines. The perfect example is the countertop type or floor standing with 4 casters such as brands Haier and Danby.

The portable washing machines are as effective as the big machines with about three wash modes you can utilize, even more, such as Danby with 8 wash cycles. There is quick, normal and heavy mode depending on how stained your clothes are. With the compact nature that makes it light and portable, this state of the art washer has a built in sink adapter where you can fix the faucet. Once the washing is done, you can disconnect the faucet and pack your portable washing machine. There is no tedious and expensive plumbing needed to fix the washer in your washing room.
