Getting someone else to do the ironing

I don't iron anything. I know I probably should iron at least a few things, but I just don't have time and when I do I frankly can't be bothered. I was just reading on Style and Beauty about how all my clothes would look better if ironed, and I fear those stylish people over there may have a point.
So I wondered if anyone on here gets their ironing done by someone, and if so how much you pay? The easy answer would be to ask our cleaner to stay a bit longer (and pay her more, obviously) to do ironing more regularly. But I wanted to get a ball park of how much an ironing service costs. I am sure I've read on here about people who get a basket of ironing done a week where someone takes it away then brings it back all crisp and lovely. Did I imagine that?
I am in London btw, if that makes a difference to prices etc.
Thank you for your help.

I used to send my ironing out but it was such a faff with collection and delivery that I was either messing them around or vice versa.
Im back to the crumpled look.

I run an ironing service in southend on sea area, free collection and delivery, very reliable

I'm in an identical situation OP.
Mil is disgusted and will collect, iron and return DCs school shirts each week.

I've seen an ikea bag full for £15. I'm in north London.

MIL has been doing ours since DD was born, but she's about to have knee surgery so we're having to consider our options. My preference is to get my shit together and do it instead of wasting so much time on Mumsnet, but throwing money at the problem is also an option. Following with interest.
