When you seek power-washing services for your heavy equipment, cost is an important factor. While it might seem tempting to choose a contractor with the least expensive power washing cost, it is important to understand what you receive in return. By knowing more about what goes into a power-washing estimate, you’ll make an educated decision regarding the service that’s best for your needs and budget.

Power Washing for Heavy Equipment Cost

The value of power washing heavy equipment may seem confusing when the quotes you receive have large differences in costs. When you receive an estimate from a newer business, for example, the services might be less expensive if the contractor is trying to acquire new customers or doesn’t understand the true value of the services provided. (Companies that do this often go out of business quickly.) On the other hand, a contractor might have cheaper rates if he:

  • Operates the business out of his home
  • Does not maintain equipment well
  • Uses poor quality equipment and detergents
  • Does not hire employees
  • Does not invest in ongoing professional training for himself or his employees
  • Is not licensed, bonded or insured
  • Does not have adequate insurance policies
  • Provides power-washing services as a part-time gig
  • Charges extra fees for standard services

A good power washing contractor is always ready and willing to provide you with credentials and proof of bonds, licenses, and insurance coverage.

Geographic location and economic conditions also affect power-washing costs and the services offered. A contractor in an urban area, for example, might focus on specific markets. A contractor in a rural area might provide a greater range of services to stay busy and accommodate demand. To receive the best, most comprehensive services, it is a good idea to choose a contractor that operates out of several locations throughout a province or the country.

An additional consideration in regards to cost is environmentally conscious power washing services. An eco-friendly service uses biodegradable detergents, takes steps to protect the environment and your property, and reclaims wastewater. These services not only benefit the environment, they ensure that clients comply with strict environmental laws that have hefty fines if violated.
