Vehicle Washing Systems

Read below about the vehicle washing systems designed, made and maintained in-house by the UK based Autowash Engineering Ltd.

A standard double pass wash cycle will wash an articulated truck and trailer in six minutes and smaller vehicles in less time. Our single pass wash cycle is even quicker, the times varying from vehicle to vehicle. Systems can be started manually by a low voltage push-button or automatically by sensors mounted on the vehicle to detect vehicle presence.

All systems are fitted with long-life LED traffic lights to assist with the operation of the machines. The machine brushes accurately contour a profile of the vehicle front, sides, roof and rear to achieve all over cleaning. Water along with a chemical cleaning agent is sprayed directly to the vehicle surface by a series of machine mounted spray nozzles. The cleaning agent is added by means of a highly accurate and adjustable electronic pump.

Autowash Engineering offers a range of quality chemical cleaning products designed for use with automatic washing systems. During winter the machine has an automatic frost-protection systems. This system minimises downtime of the equipment and prevents frost damage.

Female HGV Drivers Needed

In 2016 HGV firms will target women in order to improve the amount of women truck drivers.

It is repported in the Daily Record that "a recruitment drive to get women behind the wheel of Scotland’s HGVs is key to saving the £5billion haulage industry."

An extra 11,000 truckers are required to solve a shortage of HGV drivers and so now  HGV firms plan to target females to take up the profession by working with colleges and employment agencies with the aim to set up a “logistics academy” that will recieve a substantial sum of funding to get women to become HGV drivers.

The Daily Record also report "that around 1500 new drivers will be needed each year for the next decade. One per cent of HGV drivers are women."
