    For those that want to have a go at building a wheelie bin washing trailer like me do any of you chaps on here already built one.

    If so could you kindly share some info and pics and how you went about building it also were to get the various parts needed and consumables you use.

    Many thanks....

    unless you have a lot of experience as a fabricator or metal work i personally wouldnt want the trouble , did you search online for a second hand trailer as ive seen a few on in the past that sell very reasonable , mine was purpose built by freshbins and is a very reliable bit of kit.

    i also meant to say it might be worth a test canvas of your area to see is there a demand and also what sort of prices are the competition charging as ive read on forums that theres companys in the uk charging as little as 1.50 per bin , now ive seen some companys getting 3.50 to 4 quid a bin pending the area your in

    Smurf I dont know about how to build one matey, but via a friend who has wheelie bin people as customers, might be able to offer some advice......... let me know. Smurf, you would have to take in account what days the councils empty the bins, then theirs disposal of chemicals etc, but you prob know all this...

    i understand what your saying smurf ,remember theres a fair bit involved , a strong enough trailer , a good washer , a tank and filtering system , and lifting equipment for the bins so bear in mind these bits will cost a few grand

    Its quite a big industry Smurf, I expect there to be a few rules and regulations, disposal of chemicals etc, have a look at VIP bins franchise. If you pm me your email, I can ask one of my friends customers to mail you?

    is this because you've been cleaning the bins when you have been pressure washing for your drive cleaning
