Its really not going to take very long, maybe a few minutes each time you wash it.

Each forl lift once you do the first wash will take only a few minutes.


Make sure they have them all in one place so you do not have to track down. You will want to wash them before of after they close. Most likely after close so they can dry before drivers need to use them. Usally nothing on fork lifts you need to worry about getting wet.

I would say that it shouldnt take you more than a 5 minutes each fork lift. You will spend more time driving back and fourth.

Most would only charge 15 a lift and maybe a small trip fee.

If they dont have a wash bay area the clean up from the ground might take longer than washing the forklifts.

Any thing I missed please feel free to call or visit www.pressurewashinginstitute.com
