In the fast lane – Truck Smart’s October fleet washing update
The nights are becoming darker and the roads are getting muckier. All this means one thing – winter is coming. As we drive closer to the end of 2020, we thought it would be a good time for an update from the Truck Smart team about our achievements last quarter, and how our mobile truck wash services are helping our customers as we approach the colder months.
It is fair to say 2020 has had it’s challenges. At Truck Smart we are proud to have bounced back from the effect of the pandemic. What’s more, we have experienced a record quarter – both for the amount of vehicles we have cleaned and the number of new customers joining us. We’ve even been able to expand our team!
Our month in numbers
- Fleet washing – 1500 vehicles washed in September
- Mobile truck valeting – 120 truck interiors cleaned and disinfected
- Trailer washouts – 100+ trailers internals washed
- Curtain-side deep cleaning & restoration – 100+ curtains restored
We welcomed 4 new customers onboard in September alone for our fleet cleaning services. One of these new partners has 60 vehicles across 11 sites, all requiring fortnightly exterior truck cleaning. We are looking forward to enabling this bluechip customer to maintain their brand image and provide shining trucks that their drivers are proud of.
Covid-19 appears to have had a lasting effect on the services our customers require; several fleet operators have been keen to expand their truck cleaning programme to include mobile truck valeting and interior disinfecting. For instance, one of our supply chain customers has introduced a quarterly interior deep clean on their vehicles to ensure their drivers operate within a clean, safe vehicle.
Despite the state of the economy, we have been lucky enough to have welcomed a new full time staff member – David Batey. David has vast experience in truck valeting and servicing, and we are confident he will be the perfect addition to our team and bring great value to our customers.
We owe our success through this difficult year to our customers, both old and new. From everyone at the Truck Smart team, thank you for your business and ongoing loyalty.
