Truckomat (originally named Truckomatic) was founded in 1969 by truckstop entrepreneur Bill Moon. He wanted to provide a high-quality truck wash using a hand brushed technique. The system he developed uses hand brushes for the tractor and a special moving brush machine to wash trailer sides. Truckomat currently has eight locations in the Midwest.
Truckomat is unique in that it doesn’t use harsh chemicals in the wash process. Truckomat is an Eco-Friendly Truck Wash that uses specially formulated cleaners that will not harm the environment.
No Aromatic Solvents
No Ozone Depleting Compounds
Extensive Water Filtration
Truckomat Truck Washes extensively filter wastewater before it ever flows into the city sewer system. A multiple filter process ensures that all water contaminates and solids are captured and are then disposed of at an approved landfill site.
Unfortunately, Mobile Washing discards wastewater directly onto the ground. This wastewater (including wash water) from any type of vehicle and equipment cleaning contains significant amounts of substances such as oil and grease, petroleum products, suspended solids such as dirt and grit, heavy metals, detergents, and other pollutants. These contaminants pollute the surface water and groundwater.
Truckomat works diligently to seek out opportunities to save energy and protect the environment. All Truckomat Truck Washes operate with energy-saving lighting systems that use less wattage and last longer than traditional bulbs and fixtures. This means less discarded bulbs in local landfills and lower energy consumption.
