With fuel prices at $3.00 per gallon for over the road truck diesel and the potential eventuality of a Showdown with Iran and a hard hitting 2006 Atlantic Tropical Hurricane Season does it really make sense to start a Truck Wash in 2006? Is this a good time to invest in the truck wash business and what is the Independent Truck Wash Business Outlook for 2006?.Well one could say that diesel prices are a key factor in the consideration of whether or not this is the best year to start a truck wash business.
It would in fact depend on your marketing strategy. With costs so high in the trucking sector, especially for Independent Truck Drivers and Smaller Trucking Companies who are generally the highest paying customers for services, one could say it is not the best year at all.However with larger trucking companies and record-breaking quarters in profits due to being able to better pass these costs onto their customers one could say this is the best year to be in the truck washing business. After all the economy is at a peak and water is still cheap too and there are more trucks on the road than ever before as well of course.
Nevertheless the marketing strategy is to be considered as well and price points are a key for those larger companies trying to keep profits up and the Independents and smaller companies hanging by a thread trying to stay in business with their few lucrative routes.I hope you will consider all these factors and think on this in 2006..
