Wash On Wheels has done the car washing for the annual Wild Wild West sale at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Golden, Colorado for more than 10 years. This year Stevinson will have a second sale location in Frederick with 135 more cars.

We had already washed all the cars at the Denver Auto Show so we were surprised when they called for more car washing.

2013-03-21_12-24-27_596

Flatbed truck washing cars in the parking garage at the Colorado Convention Center

It turns out that there were 15 cars delivered late that they still wanted to get in the show. Our client didn’t know they were coming and was in a little bit of a panic when they called us.

When you’re dealing with shows as big as this – 500 cars from all the manufacturers – the logistics can be challenging. And our client flies around the country to all the different shows making sure the cars look their best.

So when these cars showed up two days late, they had to do whatever was necessary to get them cleaned and inside. We got the call after 10am and all our trucks were already out working on their regular routes for the day.

After tire dressing

But we understood the position our client was in and shuffled things around to get a truck down to take care of them. This is the kind of situation where you have to take care of it – no matter what it takes. We even helped them get the tire dressing on since this was such a rush job.

We have the capacity to take care of emergency situations so we can give our clients the very best service. They call us because they know we’ll take care of them. We make sure we have the equipment to get the job done.

In this case, like other parking garages, you need a flatbed truck or trailer to get inside to do the work. We were able to dispatch one of our regular car washing crews to do this work, but we always have equipment in reserve that our managers can take if it comes to that.

Emergency Car Washing At The Denver Auto Show 03

Before tire dressing

We even had one emergency at a restaurant in the Park Meadows shopping center where a water line burst and mud flowed across the parking lot. One of our managers and the president were the only ones available that day – and they took care of it, recovering the muddy water and getting the restaurant open on time.

Most of our emergency service calls are for grease and oil spills, so we’re ready for that. There aren’t that many calls for emergency car washing. But we do whatever it takes to keep our client’s businesses running smoothly.

If you’re looking for a pressure washing company you can count on, give us a call.

Professionals in the automotive industry come in to see what their competition is doing. And prospective buyers come to the show to see all the different models in one place. Factory representatives from each manufacturer are there to answer questions.

Car Washing for the Denver Auto Show at the Colorado Convention Center

And they need the road grime cleaned off before they take them inside.

Our car washing service includes everything from a rinse & chamois to a full detail. We adjust our service to match our client’s needs, whether we’re washing cars, trucks, and equipment, or buildings, sidewalks and parking garages.

2013-03-18_11-57-50_512

Washing off the engine compartments

The cars at the Auto Show are all brand new so the service they needed was a deluxe wash. We wet them down, then soap & mitt them clean. Then we rinse them off then chamois them dry.

They also wanted us to spray the dust off the engine compartments. Then we wiped off the edges on all the hoods, trunks, and doors. We also wiped off the wheels.

A lot of car washing needs to be done before the detailers can add their final touches. They count on us to show up ready to get the job done on time so they can get all those cars staged inside the convention center.

If you have a special event you need done right and on time, give us a call.

Press Release March 1, 2013

Larry Miller Nissan of Highlands Ranch has Grand Opening with Cars Cleaned by Wash On Wheels

Larry Miller Nissan had the grand opening of their brand new dealership last week. After the snow and winds the week before, they had a bunch of dirty cars they needed Wash On Wheels to do a good car washing on to be ready for car buyers from across the Denver metro area.

Wash On Wheels Cleans Cars For Grand Opening Of Larry Miller Nissan

The new dealership at 1320 Plum Valley Lane in Highlands Ranch replaces their previous location at 5001 South Broadway in Englewood. Wash On Wheels did a great job washing their cars on South Broadway and the new dealership wanted to keep the same level of service at their new location.

Wash On Wheels adjusted the routes on their 6 trucks to make sure they could take care of Larry Miller’s needs. They wash close to 30,000 cars per month for Denver auto dealers.

Scheduling a car washing service for that many cars can be challenging in the winter. Days are short and the cars are often dirtier due to frequent snowstorms. But Wash On Wheels does an outstanding job of taking care of their clients, including washing on Saturdays and Sundays when necessary.

“We jump through hoops to make sure our clients have clean cars on their lots,” said Joel Shorey, President of Wash On Wheels. “Our crews know they have to be flexible in the winter weather.”

With 27 years experience in Denver, Wash On Wheels knows how to deal with Colorado’s winter conditions. They specialize in EPA water recovery and include it with their pressure washing service at no extra charge.

Press Release – February 14, 2012

Planet Honda Hires Wash On Wheels For Higher Quality Car Washing

Planet Honda in Golden, Colorado needed a better solution for the car washing at their dealership. Wash On Wheels, Colorado’s largest pressure washing and car washing service, provided a cost effective solution.

2013-02-01_14-08-20_29Many car dealerships like Planet Honda use an outside service for their car washing. While some have their lot techs do the washing, a professional car washing service is much faster. This offers the advantage of not having the noisy pressure washing machines running all the time.

Using a professional service also has the benefit of less time with water and soap on the lot. Doing the job quickly instead of having the lot techs do a few cars in between their other duties provides a more appealing visual presentation of the cars on the lot.

A professional car washing service can usually wash hundreds of cars in a few hours instead of days. And they bring their own equipment, removing the dealer’s expense of purchasing and maintaining the equipment themselves. And the dealers don’t have to deal with hiring and training additional lot techs.

“Washing cars quickly and efficiently takes practice,” said Joel Shorey, President of Wash On Wheels. “Our managers spend a lot of time getting our crews trained properly.”

Every year we do a special car washing at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.

While the fairgrounds is best known for rodeos and 4H style events, its also a great place for a car sale.

Stevinson Automotive has their annual Wild West Sale at the fairgrounds. They move about 400 cars from their seven different dealerships out to the fairgrounds.

This year they added the sale to their new Hyundai dealership in Longmont and had us do the car washing at that location as well.

They set up special facilities at the fairgrounds including tents and tables for all the people who come to see the hundreds of different cars.

They need us to have all the cars clean before they open the sale in the morning. We have our crews come in early and leave our shop at 5:30am to get all the cars shining before the gates open to the public.

Stevinson Automotive calls us every year because they know they can count on us. We’re the only car washing company that can get all those cars clean in a short amount of time.

We washed cars for a sale in February at Sports Authority Field a few years ago and washed more than 1000 cars in a little over two hours. It was a very cold day and we had to wait until late morning for the temperature to get above freezing. Then we had to finish in the few hours before it started freezing again.

We do car washing for many of metro Denver’s auto dealers and we wash thousands of cars every week, even in the winter. Its not a job for the faint of heart. Washing cars at 33 degrees takes some getting used to.

But when we wash for Stevinson’s Wild West Sale we don’t have any temperature issues to deal with. We just have to get all our crews moving for the early morning start.

Which is usually pretty at that time of the morning. The Jefferson County Fairgrounds sits up on a hill overlooking Denver. The early morning views can be pretty amazing.

All of our clients – whether we’re washing cars, trucks, sidewalks at shopping centers and restaurants or whatever – have counted on us for 26 years to show up on schedule and do the job right.

We got a call about car washing for an auto dealer who had used our services before.

They switched to a cheaper company a few weeks ago – and quickly found out they got what they were paying for.

There are some things the little guys just can’t do. And this isn’t a slam on the little car washing companies. Our company was started by a guy working out of his house – most companies are.

Apple and Hewlett-Packard were started in a garage, too. But companies like ours – with 6 trucks and 25 employees – are at a different level than a guy with one truck.

We have full insurance coverage including Workers Compensation. Most little guys like this one don’t. Many of them try to pretend their employees are independent contractors so they don’t need it.

We guarantee our work and back it up. If one of our crews has an off day and does a poor job, we go back for free. We know the few hundred dollars it costs will come back in the long run.

And we take care of any damage on the lot, too. When you wash more than 250,000 cars in a year, their will be one or two mistakes.

And when the weather gets bad and we need to get all of our clients cars washed on the good days, we usually have enough extra trucks to get caught up. A guy with one truck will only be able to do one days work – so the rest of his customers have dirty cars for the weekend.

But this former client wanted us to match the cheaper guy’s rates to get their business back. Which wouldn’t be fair to our other car washing clients who pay our regular rates.

Discounting your rates to get unprofitable business is a quick way to go out of business – no matter what kind of business you’re in. Shouldn’t all our stability and guarantees be worth $20 0r $30 per week?

The car washing clients we’ve had for 10+ years think so.

Our car washing crews have been dealing with some extra dirty cars this week.

Smoke from North Fork Fire

Smoke from North Fork Fire (Photo credit: shawncampbell)

The Lower North Fork Fire has spewed smoke over the entire Denver metro area for the last few days and much of the soot and ash has settled on all the cars. Since our car washing service cleans thousands of cars each week for Denver area auto dealers, we’ve put in a lot of extra effort to get them clean.

Sometimes they come clean with just a little extra elbow grease. But in the area where the ash came down heavier, we might have to add an extra step to get the cars clean. And we can’t really define the area that has been hit the hardest. It just depends on where the winds were blowing when the ash was the heaviest.

Car Washing For Thousands of Auto Dealers Cars Every Week

Car Washing For Thousands of Auto Dealers Cars Every Week

Some auto dealer lots are more exposed and get hit harder with the weather – be it snow or soot. And they have to wash their cars more often to keep them clean. The saying, “Clean cars sell” truly applies.

If you’re out looking at cars to buy, you’re much less likely to even go in to a car lot where the cars are dirty. If they’re not shiny, they don’t draw the buyers in. And they look like they haven’t been taken care of which makes them look much less appealing, too.

Some auto dealers have their own lot techs wash the cars. But then they have noisy machines and water on their lots for most of the day. The dealers that call us for car washing find it’s more cost effective to use our service than to have extra employees.

Because our car washing crews average more than 100 cars per hour, we’re in and out quickly so there is less interference with people shopping for cars.

Pressure Washing An RV Roof

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 Pressure washing an RV to remove the dirt of winter can be a project!

We’re getting closer to spring!  Colorado still has to get through the month of March, but very soon Coloradoans will be replacing their long-johns and snow boots with shorts and hiking boots.  Some people love winter activities, but many of us sort of hibernate through the winter weather.  Whether winter weather gets you outdoors or makes you retreat to the indoors, spring brings on a whole new set of activities that even the laziest person can take pleasure in.

Pressure washing and scrubbing an RV roof

Pressure washing and scrubbing an RV roof

One favorite pastime of Coloradoans and travelers from all over the country is camping.  Many people ‘rough it’ in tents, but a whole lot of people enjoy the outdoors with a RV as their base camp.  Many of these RV’s have been sitting in storage for many months and most of them have been exposed to the elements.

Wash On Wheels pressure washing service does a lot of RV’s in the spring when adventurers are preparing for a summer of exploration.  Most of these RV’s only need pressure washing with a normal soap, brush and rinse.

Pressure Washing An RV Roof

Pressure Washing An RV Roof

However, there’s always a few that require some special attention.  If a RV has been stored outdoors, there’s a good chance that it will have a lot of dark lines running down the sides from the roof or under windows.

These lines are caused by dirty snowmelt following the same path down the sides of the RV every time the snow melts.  Usually if the RV is very new, the sides are still polished enough to let the dirt run all the way off the vehicle.  However, the older the RV is and the more exposure to sun the RV gets, the more oxidation there is on the sides.  This oxidation tends to hold the dirt and keep it from running off the vehicle, creating dark lines.

The process for pressure washing these lines can vary depending on just how bad the oxidation is.  Sometimes we just use a stronger soap and hand mitts, but sometimes the only way to get the lines out is to buff them with special compounds.  The difference in price can be dramatic.

If you have an RV, pressure washing it often is best, including cleaning the roof off.  Also plan on having the RV buffed and waxed occasionally to protect your investment.

Wash On Wheels can provide anything from basic pressure washing to an intensive interior and exterior detail on your RV to keep it shining like new.
