Washing a Big coach can be a time consuming and/or costly experience. as we travel, we like to keep the coach looking at nice as we can as well as get the road dirt off the coach and the bugs off the windshield. Years ago a friend of mine told us about truck washes. Blue beacon I believe the largest chain of truck washes across the U.S.
When the bus is getting dirty and we are on the road, we always pull up the blue beacon mobile app to see where the closest Blue beacon truck wash is to give the bus a clean slate!
The one thing you can count on with Blue Beacon is easy access. All Beacon’s were designed for 53′ trucks. Easy access and easy turns to get into the bays. Usually located near Pilot’s and Flying J’s, it is always close to other large diesel stores.Blue Beacon’s stay busy. We have seen the lines as long as 10 trucks deep and as little as 3. The longest wait we have had is around 40 minutes.
Most of the Blue Beacon’s are open 7 days a week/24 hours a day. The run 2 bays at the same time with a team of around 6 people before
Once in they ask you
- Do you want a full wash?
- Do you want your tow car washed as well?
- Do you want Rainx covered on the coach?
- Do you want the wheels Blackened?
Our rig is 43′. To get all this done normally costs around $40-$50 per time (Different depending on location)
Once in the bay, the spray and scrub the coach, they have waterfall sprayers on the top.
THis is NOT a detailed Mobile Detailing shop. BUT the work is normally quite good. They don’t miss things. The water is just not always that clean.
But it is well worth the price.
For how we detail wash/Wax and Maintain the coach see – Washing and Waxing Protecting that Finish
