blacktiedetail, I will have to pm you when I get a little closer to securing the gig. I found out today that a professional detail company offered to do it for 115 the first wash of each truck and then 75 if done bi weekly. I feel I could do it for 65-75 a truck and 85-90 in the winter months. Sounds low though but I already have a full time job and this will be just extra gravy. Need to get the machine, burner and chems though first. I wonder if i could rent one for a month before I invest in my own. Anyone know where I could get a pressure washer for a good price? any Ideas on chemicals will help so keep them comming. Thanks for all your help.

You change jets for differant jobs, they have a soap jet. The soap won't draw when you put a wash jet in.

My Dad has a small pressure washer and it came with a wand that if you pull on the end it pulls the soap through at a lower psi then you can push the end back toward you it goes back to rinse mode.

Most times it is best to bid these units on a time and materials basis unless you are doing a regular cleaning. Prices can vary dramatically based on how bad they are and what they want done. Regular wash might be $30-$75 where a good degreasing job might be $150-200. Pain prep is a whole different ball game and you are closer to $400-500 ea.

if you want to this part time job / for serious, you have to get the basic tools for sure. that means first invest / then have proofits right?
Either you save for your complete basic tools / or end up wasting to much time / renting, or not having that tool to do the job faster & better.

for me one of the best options to do Truck washing, is using a Hot Pressure washer along / yes you will invest more at first, but you will see the difference since your first job / less expensive truck chemicals & special shampoos to buy.

you will clean much better using Hot Pressure washer / than regular Cold Pressure washer.

Well this is my personal opinion!!

chems for Truck washing are not cheap!!!

I get $55 for a basic wash and vac of a Yukpn XL. a big rig for $75? Way to low.. Pick up some Meguiars Wheel Brightner, spray on with a pump sprayer, pressure wash that shiznit off and you will look like a king. The tires, use a product called Hyper Dressing from Meguiars as well, can be diluted down to 1:4 and will look great. PM me for more info on the detailing bit...
Great info! Thanks! I'm just getting into adding Semi's to my list to clean and appreciate any info like this that helps.

100/ truck will do. As for the PSI you can settle between this range 1200 – 1900 PSI.
