Case Study: Turnkey Permanent Wash Bay Solutions

Hugg & Hall Equipment Company provides a large variety of heavy equipment including loaders, forklifts, boom lifts, air compressors and material handling equipment for rental or sale. 

Hugg & Hall customers rely upon their equipment to deliver the high performance required to reliably and safely meet the critical needs of every job. One key factor to optimal performance is keeping their machines clean and functioning like new. 

Building a Permanent Wash Bay for Heavy Equipment

The Problem

After purchasing a new facility to rent and sell their heavy equipment from, Hugg & Hall were in a bind. Their new property did not have a wash pad of any kind, let alone one in compliance with local regulations. Without this vital aspect to their process, they would be unable to operate from the new location for months. 

When they started digging into the detailed requirements of designing and constructing a full wash bay system, concern arose over potential delays in being fully operational at the new facility.  The design details would require unique expertise, the construction timeline after design would likely be several months and the required project management would tie up valuable Hugg & Hall staff needed for Hugg & Hall customer service.  

The Hugg & Hall team knew they needed the right system to support properly cleaning equipment and managing wastewater without distracting their own operations away from the top priority of Hugg & Hall customer service.  Hugg & Hall was determined to prioritize properly servicing their customers immediately over working on internal facilities modifications.  

The Solution

Hugg & Hall called Evans Equipment & Environmental and scheduled a meeting to find out if there was a better way to accomplish their goal of getting their new facility up and running immediately.

After talking with the Evans Equipment & Environmental team, Hugg & Hall realized they had found a partner in Evans Equipment that could help them achieve their business objective of properly serving their customer needs immediately without cutting corners.  

Installing a wash bay is a labor-intensive, very detailed project, however, with the Evans Equipment process, the client doesn’t even have to know just how many obstacles and challenges we face. Every new job presents unique challenges and opportunities for the Evans team to find new solutions. As a turn-key solution, our customers do not experience the headache of challenges or setbacks.  

Important system design elements are handled by the experienced Evans team:

  • Pumps and associated water pressure for the application
  • Nozzles locations for wash water and detergents
  • Proper detergents and degreasers for the specific contaminants on equipment.
  • Detergent and degreaser metering to optimize cost and minimize waste
  • Plumbing design and construction for all wash and waste water
  • Civil design and construction for proper wash and waste water capture
  • Permits: waste water system permitting is locally regulated for each site and is often a very lengthy and time consuming process

With all of Evans Equipment design and construction capability, the problem of being able to begin equipment wash operations immediately still remained.  

Hugg & Hall needed to be open for business while the new wash bay was being built.  Evans Equipment had the solution  – installing a temporary portable wash pad.  Evans Equipment & Environmental provides portable modular wash pads for customers who need a wash solution on an interim or temporary application. This portable wash pad service enabled Hugg & Hall to serve their customer needs without delays; the new site was able to open right away allowing Hugg & Hall to meet their objective of properly serving their customer needs immediately without cutting corners.
