LYMM Truckwash’s new site has proved a hit with more than 1000 new customers in the first three months.

John and Anne Cardwell retired in 2018 and a new chapter in the business began when their daughter Laura, had the opportunity to design and construct a new purpose-built truckwash, just 30 seconds from the M6 and M56 motorways.

The company washed 1700 trucks within the first week of January alone.

Laura said: “The feedback from all our customers has been so positive and everyone is really impressed with the site.

“This heralds a new level of service in truck washing and we’re very happy to be at the forefront. There’s no other truck wash like this in Europe in terms of annual throughput and technology.”

The new facility uses automatic number plate recognition technology, which saves drivers time. They can choose to pay with a fuel or credit/debit card, cash or Snap at the HGV-height kiosk, which means drivers do not have to leave their cabs.

Regular customer Bill French from Turners of Soham, said: “Seeing this impressive facility makes me realise we should never take our truckwashing in house.”

The business is also supporting The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust by washing their minibuses every week.

There are other plans on the site, including HGV fuelling from Certas, parking and driver welfare facilities.

Laura adds: “The site is for the HGV driver, he is number one here, which is not often the case. In addition, the investment benefits the local economy and business community.”
