Pressure Washer Sales Tip

Pressure Washer Sales Tip

Zig Ziglar made famous the expression” Stinkin’ Thinkin”. This is defined by many groups as a misplaced set of ideas. This can be especially true when selling power washers and pressure washers. When economic times are hard, sales people become guilty of “stinkin’ thinkin’. I can’t afford to advertise; I sell the machine they ask for; my market is shrinking. This may be because many distributors of power washers view a machine sale as a single point in their business model. It looks to them like filling a jar with pennies… each sale puts a few pennies into their jar. So when times are tougher, fewer pennies go into the jar.
Think Rube Goldberg: make the pennies from each sale role into your maze of other revenue pools. View the sale of a power washer as a part of the revenue flow.

CETA did a survey of distributors that revealed about one third of their sales were from parts and service, one third of their sales were from machine sales. Bundle the sale with offers from your other sides of your business. For example, give your power washer customer a service special and a parts special with the order of the pressure washer. Take the customer information, put it into your contact manager, like Outlook or ACT!, and set a reminder to call or e-mail this customer within a week or two to see how things are going. Set a second reminder to send a service reminder of the special you offered. Every pressure washer sale can produce a “customer” for your service and parts business. You have captured this prospect with “free” advertising.
Each sale contributes to the revenue flow of your business. The “cheapest” customer to sell is the one you already have.

  • Advantages of a Hot Water Pressure Washer

    Simply by heating up the water, a hot water pressure washer delivers dramatically improved cleaning power compared to a cold water machine. Hot water pressure washers are especially useful for cleaning sticky, greasy, or oily surfaces, because they will loosen the dirt much faster without the large amounts of soap, detergent, or other cleaning chemicals that must be used with a cold water system.

  • Hot Water Pressure Washer Applications

    A hot water pressure washer is essential for any cleanup job involving a sticky, greasy, or oily mess, as well as for applications where a surface must be sanitized. With a variety of models available, including self-contained mobile units with gas, diesel, or electric power, Hydro Tek hot water pressure washers can go anywhere and clean anything. Some common applications include heavy equipment cleaning, vehicle cleaning, graffiti removal, restaurant hood vent cleaning, and livestock facility cleaning.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

Hydro Tek

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
