How much does it cost for a trailer washout and sterilisation?


Sam from Truck Smart here, and in this blog post, we’re diving into trailer washouts and sterilisation pricing. If you’ve been wondering about the cost per trailer or rigid, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s explore the various pricing plans we offer and what factors influence them.

How Much Does It Cost?

Typically, our pricing falls within the range of £65-£120 per trailer or rigid. However, this can vary based on several key factors that impact the final price.

Factors Affecting Price

  1. Size of the Fleet: The number of rigids, trailers, and double deck trailers requiring regular washouts and sterilisation affects the overall cost. Larger fleets may qualify for discounted rates.
  2. Size of the Rigids/Trailers: Double deck trailers tend to be more time-consuming to clean due to their two floors, which can influence the pricing.
  3. Availability: Consider when your fleet can be cleaned. Can they be cleaned in the day, evening, or weekend?
  4. Wash Area: Having a designated wash area on-site may require additional shunter support. Alternatively, if trailers can be cleaned anywhere, this may reduce cost.
  5. Water Supply: An external water supply on-site is essential for this service. Availability of water can influence pricing considerations.
  6. Frequency: The cleaning cycle required by your operation also plays a role. Do you need weekly washouts or operate on a longer cleaning plan?
