Steel Buildings and Valeting Bays For Car Dealers

steel valeting bay

Hanson Garages were approached by an agent of a market leading car and van rental group.

As a high volume car and van rental group with depots in every town and city throughout the UK, the need to turn around vehicles with an interior and exterior cleaning service in all weathers is absolutely paramount.

The company had tried several different valeting bay solutions over the past few years without success. Time and money were wasted on canopies and covers as a potential solution to their valeting needs.

On one particular site, a large canopy was installed.  This canopy solution proved to be less durable during the winter months, which is when they needed it most as the photos show.

Another site had a wooden canopy which was removed by another contractor. The concrete base was badly broken, subsiding and very uneven although to install a new concrete base would have incurred significant extra cost and delay in completion leaving the site out of action.


Solution by Hanson Steel Buildings

Hanson Steel Buildings were able to put forward the following solution:

  • Begin the installation within 7 days of the foundations being laid to get the site operational
  • To produce a valeting bay to house 4 cars and the largest and highest highest vans in their fleet
  • To supply a maintenance free building which would last for many years
  • The building must look attractive from the customer facing road
  • The building had to fit the available space and be installed without the extra expense of laying a new concrete base
  • After 2 site surveys and a full understanding of the customer’s needs, plans were put forward for the customer’s approval
  • A schedule of works was agreed and the site was cleared by their own contractor who installed a concrete ring foundation to the specification we supplied
