Buses and coaches have got to be clean. People heading off on a coach trip expect their transport to look and be immaculate, outside as well as in. That is why every coach operator has to work out a strategy for keeping the vehicles clean, at all times, in all seasons, in the best and worst of weather.
Tom Towning, MD of JTT Equipment explains the options. “A large fleet operator may elect to build a big static drive-through washing facility, and for some operators, large municipal fleets for example, this may make sense. It is a costly process though, involving extensive ground-works, planning permission, very expensive equipment, a very significant annual maintenance cost, zero flexibility in terms of location and functionality, and will probably have to be completely refurbished and updated every seven to ten years. But for some large, very high volume operations it can make sense. For everyone else though, I would suggest that a less capital intensive, more flexible, more cost-effective system that still delivers a first-class job and is robust, reliable and easy to use is a better option. That’s why we have the Speedy Wash range. It is much faster and more effective than simply using a pressure washer and brush, uses less power, water and detergent and produces a better result, but it is hugely cheaper and more flexible than installing a large fixed wash-bay.” … Read More
