Love’s Travel Stops announced plans to offer truck wash services at select travel stops and Speedco locations.
Love’s Truck Washes are equipped with automated technology and are expected to provide the same quality as a hand wash but in half the time of other truck washes in the industry, the company said in a press release.
Locations are now open in Harrisonville, Missouri, and Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. Love’s said it anticipates opening additional truck washes soon in Hazen, Arkansas; and Prescott, Arkansas; along with several more in the next two years.
“Love’s was founded on innovation and thinking differently, so starting this new service is an exciting initiative that gets customers back on the road quickly,” said Shane Wharton, president of Love’s. “We listened to our customers on this new offer. The convenience of being able to fuel, wash their truck, park, and go inside all-in-one location is convenient and ideal for our professional drivers, as well as our RV customers.”
The Love's Truck Wash Process
The process starts with the driver pulling up to the designated truck wash bay, selecting his or her service, and pulling the vehicle into the bay.
The driver parks and remains in the vehicle, and the automatic three-brush rollover system starts the process of high-pressure washing.
The system moves over the vehicle using strategically placed sensors, pressure-washing sprayers, and rotary brushes to deliver what Love’s terms as remarkable cleaning power.
Love’s attendants oversee each wash to ensure high-quality wash performance.
Love’s reports services and prices vary based on equipment type and include options for a standard tractor/trailer, box truck, tractor, RV/motor home, pickup with travel trailer, or 1-ton truck. A complete list of services, prices, and add-on packages is available at loves.com/truckwash.
Professional drivers can earn and spend My Love Rewards points at all truck wash locations.
Even though the process is automated, Love’s expects local job growth as a result of this added service. The company said to ensure top-notch customer service, each truck wash location will average three employees working across two bays from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The process uses reclaimed water for the initial rinse and trailer wash outs to save water, and the chemicals are certified safe for the environment, according to Love’s.
