Experience The Convenience of Portability with Our Self-Contained Wash Bays.

Portable Wash Bays: Experience The Convenience Of Portability


A portable wash bay is an industrial system designed to clean heavy-duty equipment and vehicles. Commonly known as car wash containers or water containment mats, they’re relocatable, self-contained stations that retain wash-water prior to processing.

Mobile wash bays are ideally suited to car wash stations, auto detailers and work sites that are responsible for vehicle wash down.

The types of wash bays we build include:

Businesses that regularly wash down vehicles must have measures in place to address car wash water containment and comply with water runoff regulations. Wash bays help contain wastewater that is contaminated with liquids associated with vehicle washdown such as car waxes, paint correction, residue from foam guns, leather care and detailing products.

At Trade Enviro, we have portable wash bays for every application on sale, our wash bays are ideal for a wide range of clients. Our above-ground systems require no concrete cutting and are simple and fast to set up and use.

Why You Should Consider A Portable Wash Bay For Your Business

Marine trade mining and agricultural Industries utilise vehicles to perform various tasks. These Vehicles are exposed to diverse contaminants during operations. As a result, these vehicles need regular cleaning and maintenance.

Legislation in Australia requires all washdown water from these industrial applications to be isolated from the stormwater network. The water contained should be treated before discharge to sewer or should be taken off site by a licensed waste removal company and in no case should be allowed to naturally drain off the land and into the stormwater network (pump trucks and liquid waste removalists can be used for pump outs). In other words, if you have washdown procedures as a part of your job or business, a specialized system for wash down is necessary to provide efficient yet thorough cleaning as well as legally meeting the criteria for operating a wash bay . Trade Enviro can provide portable wash bays as solutions to this requirement as well as PERMANENT IN SITU CONCRETE SYSTEMS.

Check out the benefits you enjoy with a mobile wash bay system and portable vehicle wash mats from Trade Enviro:

Mobile Wash Bays

Time and Cost Saving

One of the biggest benefits of mobile wash bays is that the entire system can be installed and de-mobilised and moved to a new site at the end of a commercial lease or project easily. They require no concrete cutting or major civil costs associated to building a wash bay. Instead of the disposing of or leaving behind of concrete wash bays, you can repeatedly use portable wash bays without changing the system’s structural integrity. Instead of a turnaround time of weeks or months, you can cut it down to just a couple of days. Portable wash bays can be self-installed also saving the user thousands $$$.

Increased Control

Portable wash bay systems can be installed near the site where the buses, trucks, heavy equipment or machinery are parked. This gives you flexibility and complete control over the cleaning schedules inspections and access.

Wastewater Removal

All Wash bays come with a minimum 12V pump and 3M power cable for pumping washdown wastewater either to treatment, recycling or to a holding tank. Our 12V pumps feature a stainless-steel screen coupled with an automatic float switch to detect water and pump as necessary. Having a 12V pumping solution also opens the door to simplified powering/solar/remote applications where power is not available and more.


Most businesses in heavy duty industries partner with car washing companies to wash down their vehicles. These costs can add up fast. By having a portable wash bay system and vehicle wash mats on site, you can dramatically reduce the investment for cleaning heavy-duty vehicles. Plus, compared to a more permanent wash down solution, portable wash bay systems can save you thousands of dollars in installation and de mobilization costs should you ever need to move it.

Environmental Compliance

Legislation requires businesses with wash down activities in their premises to have wash bays in place. A portable wash bay contains untreated wastewater and takes away the risk of contaminating the stormwater network. With a portable wash bay, you have options: your wastewater can either be recycled, treated and discharged to sewer or held in a holding tank before it’s taken off site.

Environmental Protection

A water containment mat for car wash and mobile detailing is also proven to help the environment. Wash bays are used frequently for weed and seed washdown applications, proving popular with the oil and gas industries and protecting the environment. Seed and pathogen spread can destroy crops and cause extensive environmental damage, resulting in enormous costs and challenges. Seeds/contaminants become stuck in the mud that’s often attached to the vehicle and, if not washed down, can potentially cross spread as the vehicle moves causing widespread problems. This is why remote portable washdown systems can be required even in remote areas far from our stormwater infrastructure

Frequently Asked Questions

What Do I Do With The Water After I Have Collected It: Pump Through Bag? Collection And Removal, Treatment Options?

This really depends on where you are and what the objective is. Weed and seed wash down are required to stop spreading of potentially damaging weeds and plant pathogens. Sometimes a simple pump through bag is sufficient for weed and seed projects.Alternatively, a dedicated containment and treatment option may be required. The agreement with the landowner or environmental legislation determines these options.Standard washing applications may require a holding tank and an oil-water separator to treat the water prior to discharge to the sewer. If only using minimal amounts you could pay a contract rate to have it taken from the site by a licensed pump out truck.

Do I Need A Treatment System On A Permanent Wash-Bay?

NO, but a cost balance between pump out and treating it does make sense. If contractors charge call out fees at a rate per 1000L you can work your cost based on a forward projection of the amount of water you intend to use (remember to utilise water saving devices such as pressure washers).A treatment system connected to sewer needs to be installed by a licensed plumber and often an electrician for pump and controller installation. The equipment starts from approx. 8K and you will usually require a trade waste permit which incurs an annual fee. If unsure call us for guidance on treatment system costs and options and we will quickly work out which option is better for you.

Do They Last?

Our car and vehicle wash mat is tough and reliable but not indestructible. We suggest NO turning wheels on the wash mat and cleaning the area of debris and sharp objects before installing. Using groundsheets if possible.
