Lymm Truckwash, the largest truck washing firm in Europe, has recently made a £2.3m investment into a new Cheshire site in the UK. Whilst many may see washing trucks as something of a ‘dirty’ industry, Lymm’s Managing Director Laura Cardwell is keen to dispel the misconception.
A family business that is not just the biggest but also the oldest truck washing firm in Europe, Lymm has been in successful operation for over 50 years. In 2014, Laura bought the business from her parents when they retired and her role came with the immediate brief of finding this new site and planning for the transition. With the lease on the original site about to come to an end, the company would have been forced into closure had she not been successful.
Your Nearest Lymm Truckwash
If you’re out on the roads performing a busy day’s delivery work and your lorry is not as clean as you’d like it to be, all you need to do is head to your nearest Lymm Truckwash. You’ll find them just off Junction 20 on the M6 or Junction 9 of the M56, with over 60,000 truck drivers coming away as happy customers each and every year.
Across the UK and Europe
The company doesn’t just provide services to those carry out delivery work in the UK, but also across Europe as well. They have formed successful partnerships with major firms including BP, DHL and AW Jenkinson through their many years establishing their highly respected reputation across the continent.
Of course, it will come as no surprise to drivers doing delivery work that vehicle cleanliness is not just an aesthetic preference, but a legal requirement for HGV drivers, particularly when it comes to making sure that registration plates, windows and lights are kept clean of any dust or dirt that may impair vision. The DVSA are well within their rights to ask you to pull over if you are not meeting these basic legal standards.
It’s worth remembering, too, that when you’re out driving a lorry with your firm’s logo or name painted on the side, you are a representative of the company. How clean you keep the truck (and also your own personal appearance) can make a big difference to the public’s perception of the brand.
A New Look
Lymm have also just launched an updated website and introduced new branding, with the site offering regular and detailed updates about the move to the Cheshire site. State-of-the-art equipment is set to be introduced there, making a visit even more worthwhile and streamlined for those with an HGV in need of a clean!
Lymm Truckwash is the most highly regarded truck washing firm in Europe and the company is set to go from strength to strength with its site in Cheshire. If you’re in the area, why not pay them a visit and test out the state-of-the-art facilities?
