One of the most annoying things about having to wash you vehicle fleet is actually having to stand there and wash them one by one. While washing things by hand can give you a sense of personal satisfaction, it may not always be the best option for your company. This is especially true when you have a whole fleet that you need to take care of. There are quite a few reasons for this, but let’s just go over some of the main ones.
First of all, washing each vehicle by hand is extremely time consuming. If done properly it can take hours for a single vehicle depending upon the size and this is simply not going to work if you need to get a lot of trucks in and out of your plant in a timely manner. This means that far too often these trucks aren’t getting the proper clean that you should be ensuring from your company. Either result is not something you want to admit to, which is your first indication that something should change.
Secondly, human error definitely exists when it comes to repetitive jobs like washing vehicles. How many of us have washed our cars by hand and can be completely sure that not a single spot was missed? This includes the undercarriage as well. I don’t know about you, but I can’t make that guarantee about any time that I have washed a vehicle of mine. As much as we might not like it, there are some jobs that machines are simply better at doing than we are and it just so happens that this is one of them.
Third, if you have an automated wash system that doesn’t need to touch the vehicle then you have no need to be worried about any cross contamination that can happen between who is washing the vehicle and the vehicle itself. Humans aren’t the cleanest beings in the world, so it is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to having something cleaned.
Although many people prefer to wash their vehicles themselves, when you have a fleet this simply isn’t feasible. Head over to our products tab and see what system would work best for your company and fleet size so that you can see how much of a difference touchless vehicle washing makes.
