Picture Of The Week – Europe’s largest truck wash opens new £2.3m Cheshire site


Lymm Truckwash Ltd – the largest and oldest truck wash in Europe – this week opened its new purpose-built Cheshire site, 100 metres from its previous location. The family-owned and managed business has invested £2.3 million in its move to Poplar Park, just 30 seconds off Junction 20 of the M6 and Junction 9 of the M56, near Warrington.

The new Lymm Truckwash offers four commercial vehicle wash systems, providing both a pre-wash and gantry wash in no more than six minutes – three minutes faster than the current site’s washes. The state-of-the-art, bespoke washes and jet wash system have been specially created for the company by WashTec.

The new premises offer a faster and more efficient service thanks to a new payment system that uses automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), so there’s no need for drivers to get out of their cabs.
