Here's A Brief Explanation of What We Do
Keeping vehicle fleets clean is both a science and an art. We use environmentally friendly detergents, combined with the latest in pressure washing technology to quickly but thoroughly clean the vehicle.
This process can be used on trailer skirts and the back door as well as the sides of the vehicle. It can also be used on aluminium surfaces like diesel tanks, wheels and steps.
When you see a vehicle being cleaned by professional operatives you will notice there is a significant difference. Have a look at our before and after shots of the difficult to clean areas in the video above.
The advantages of regularly keeping your vehicles cleaned to this high standard by professionals include:
- An enhanced business image
- Uninterrupted business operation
- Looking after the environment
- Extended on the road vehicle life
- MOT inspection readiness
“You Can Keep Your Vehicle Cleaning In-House...
But There Are Downsides”
After spending over 25 years cleaning vehicle fleets for forward thinking companies like TNT I have seen the problems and pitfalls where companies try to claim the false economy of cleaning their vehicles in house.
I think it is extremely important to make you aware of some of those pitfalls and what you can do about them.
So I decided to speak to one of the UKs leading pressure washer servicing companies, responsible for maintaining over 200 machines across the country to establish what the most common mistakes that are unwittingly made by companies with in-house cleaning equipment.
In a frank interview with their lead technician he said there were three main problems.
- The first is Frost Damage, which is an easily avoidable problem with the right operatives and procedures in place. Too often untrained drivers will leave the equipment charged with water that expands when it freezes which, depending on where you are in the country can be over 50 times a year.
- The second problem is Excessive Wear on the machine because too many untrained users, uncertain how to operate the equipment at its optimum, unnecessarily run the machine into the ground.
- And the third major problem was Lance and Hose Gear Damage. Multiple users of the same equipment will not take the same consistent care. The most common problem is vehicles running over the equipment that has been discarded after use.
Other common though much more hidden mistakes that are unwittingly made by organisations who believe the DIY approach will save money include:
- Incredible inefficiencies in terms of both manpower resource and detergent usage because of the frequent stop-start use of the equipment by untrained and unskilled staff.
- A lack of understanding of the impact seasonal temperature fluctuation can have on equipment. To ensure cost effective and efficient use a different approach to cleaning is necessary at different times of the year.
- Use of hazardous chemicals that pose a potential health risk to untrained operators and may possibly harm the environment if used incorrectly or not disposed of in accordance with HSE guidelines.
- Equipment left on for extended periods of time that can leave them inefficient and potentially cause extensive damage to pump seals and bearings.
So if you are cleaning your vehicles in house you need to be mindful of the extra costs and expense you may be unwittingly incurring.
