Mobile Car and Truck Washing Vehicle Placement


To maximum potential profits and dollars in a mobile washing business it pays to set up in your mind in advance the best and most strategic place to park, before stopping to wash. You will obviously want to park your rig in a location that allows you to do as many cars as possible without moving the vehicle. For instance; let us say that your hose for water is one hundred plus feet but your vacuum hose is only forty feet, so if you have four cars in close proximity and one is a vacuum, park closest to that car. This way you can wash all four cars without moving the truck or rolling up the hoses, thus maximizing efficiency.

Fleets

When washing fleets such as Rent-A-Cars companies, it is important to park in the center of the aisles in parking lots. That way you can use a 45 ft vacuum hose to clean a 90 ft row of cars on both sides without moving the truck. 180 feet of cars at an average width of the parking stall at seven feet is twenty-six cars without moving. This is a very efficient use of a parking strategy. This same idea should be used when washing fleets of: Postal Jeeps, Telephone Trucks, Cable Trucks, Taxi Cab Companies, Water Companies, City Fleets.

Remember, the high-pressure hose may only be 150 feet long so if you park in the center that's 300 feet of vehicles per side or 600 feet. Divide that by eight foot stalls and you have 75 vehicles washed without moving. By then you will want to take a break anyway or you will be done since the average fleet is under 35 vehicles. Most of these fleets will be exterior only so you won't be limited to the vacuum hose length. All parking lots are not set up perfectly, so you may have to move the truck a couple of times. What we are pointing out is that you should always have a good vantage point and a definite plan of attack because it saves time which saves you: Labor costs, Scheduling conflicts, Set up and break down minutes.

Please think about this kind of thing when washing fleets.
