Yes! As long as you have the time, knowledge, staff and correct equipment, you can carry out your own lorry cleaning on site. Your vehicles should be regularly cleaned to reduce maintenance costs, demonstrate professionalism and boost brand awareness.
For businesses with a small number of fleet vehicles, keeping the lorry cleaning in-house can be cost-effective. For businesses with larger fleets, keeping your fleet clean at all times will be a bigger task and may need additional staff.
If you are adamant on keeping your fleet cleaning in-house, you will need the right equipment and products.
Must Haves For Lorry Cleaning
To keep your fleet vehicles in tip-top condition, and reduce the costs of maintenance, you need a variety of products and equipment.
Heavy Duty Pressure Washer
An industrial pressure washer is a must-have item for lorry cleaning. Regardless of your fleet size, if you are cleaning your vehicles on site, you need a heavy-duty pressure washer. They allow you to safely remove the build-up of dirt, grime, oil and salt without damaging your vehicle.
You can choose from heavy-duty hot and cold mobile pressure washers as well as static floor and wall-mounted machines. Or, you can opt for a fully automated state-of-the-art three-stage roll over brush wash that can be installed at your site.
Heavy-duty pressure washers’ range in price from £1,225 up to £3,195 – and we can assure you they are worth every penny. At LPW, our industrial pressure washers come with an industrial gun, lance and 9-metre twin wire hose as standard accessories. We also offer free delivery anywhere in the UK.
Traffic Film Remover Detergent
Traffic film remover detergent is another must-have for lorry cleaning. Without it, you will struggle to remove the stubborn road dirt that can build-up and cause damage to your vehicle. At LPW, our Ultra Wash Plus is a highly concentrated, caustic and solvent-free traffic film remover.
It is recommended for use on commercial vehicles where heavy soiling occurs and in medium to hard water areas. Our Traffic Film Remover is available in a range of sizes, from 20 litres right up to 1000 litre containers.
To ensure the safety of your drivers and vehicles, high-quality screenwash is a necessity when lorry cleaning. The LPW concentrated screen wash can operate in temperatures down to -4°C (Pre-Mixed), -7°C (Concentrate) and -15°C (Extreme).
It has been specifically designed to keep windscreens clean and help them defrost quickly during the winter months. It is available in 20 litre, 200 litre and 1000 litre containers.
Additional Cleaning Essentials
You will also need brush heads & handles, as well as cab interior cleaning equipment. At LPW, we provide special ‘Driver Pack Kits’, which include several cab cleaning products. If required, we can also offer products to keep your warehouse clean and tidy, such as our scrubber dryer range and floor cleaner.
