Can anyone suggest who we might contact in the York area to clean our Rimor 69+? We’ve asked at local car wash places but they are not prepared to do the roof. The only storage space we could get for the last 3 months was under a tree so it really needs sorting but a bit too high for either of us to do.

Brilliant question. Maybe a good idea for a permanent thread ... where can I have mh cleaned, in various areas..?

I, too, would like to know somewhere local to me. What do you think? (y)

Could you not ring a local mobile car valet-er? (if that's even a word?!)

If you only need the outside doing and can provide them a ladder, they might be quite happy to take on the challenge!

You might need to let people know where that is :whistle:

We live in hull and have been looking for somewhere for a while, the site advertises someone in the summer, but they seem to stop doing it over the winter months. Not tried them so can't comment. Did find someone off the internet, mobile, van looked ace, all shiny, until after fist coiple of rain showers, had been polished, but not waxed, something we asked and paid for. Were abroad by the time we discovered, he was no longer on same phone no or on the net, well p'd off. Hope this helps bump it up again. We normally clean it ourselves, but health issues make it more difficult.

There's a company called WhyQueue in Pocklington that I have contemplated using. The website looks good and they do a mobile service. I'm looking for someone similar nearer Hull. Had a bad experience with our last Motorhome at one of the many hand car wash sites, walking all over the roof in wellingtons.

Have been tempted by the do it yourself one at Dunswell, but worried about the pressure of the wash. Have seen the hire vans being done there when we've been going passed.

@scotzsue Thanks, I take from the pictures that's the mobile service, they could have done ours whilst they were there. Is the cost reasonable?
What a shame didn't realise you are at the same storage facility, .
a bit pricey when compared to going to a car wash, but they spent a good 4 hours on the job, no high powered pressure wash to damage seams, but happy with what I payed. Prices on the website, I got a bit of a winter discount too.
Would I use again and pay that again, a decided yes.

Got a guy who wanted the work before, did a terrible job, seams a mess afterwards only bits you saw cleaned, ie doors not opened and steps not done. Have done it ourselves in the past, but if you read my recent posts you will see why we wanted it done for us this time.

Prestige valeting in Knaresborough will do it, roof too but they'll want it at their premises for that.

Richard and Kathryn of Why Queue did mine and a brilliant job too. Included the roof and they have all necessary ladders, platforms etc. Used only the correct chemicals and had piles of clean microfibre cloths for drying/polishing.
A professional, friendly well run business. They deserve to succeed.
I have no connection with them other than as a satisfied customer.

Very little
Great post does anyone know of a company near central scotland? Sounds like a great little idea for a valet company to take on

I rang them for a quote and they said that the travelling time (less than an hour) would be an extra £40. I have no doubt that they do an excellent job and are worthy of praise but I'm not shelling out £120 just to have the outside of my van washed.

We had ours done last October by WhyQueue. We paid £230 but our GRP front end had lost all of its shine and needed to be machine polished back. They then applied a good quality (Meguires RV) wax all over. The level of detailing was very impressive including around all the roof areas, wheels etc.
We’ll definitely be using them again, that £230 got us two hard working professionals for around 5-6 hours and all materials, resulting in a motorhome that looked better than when we picked it up from the dealer at a year old.
