The good news is that there are ZERO customs duties to pay on Benz products.
Brexit has brought about many changes and challenges to business supply chains. And there's a lot of fear floating about regarding the excess taxes being levied on customers when ordering from EU-based companies.
So we want to reassure all our customers that we are able to continue supplying both our Irish and UK customers - with no additional duty, customs costs, or delays.
We've achieved this by moving production of our core products to the UK. These, along with our other products are then sent out directly from our manufacturing partners from within the UK, and from our UK equipment supplies partner – Softwash Technology/Rutland Pumps – who are now distributing our products on 24-48 hour delivery.
Please bear with us as couriers are still hampered by the extra workload brought about by Covid restrictions – but our UK customers should actually see improved delivery times.
Our Irish customers will continue to have their orders fulfilled by our Irish manufacturing partner, who has also improved their distribution systems to enable 24-48 hour delivery on most products. (At the moment this excludes large orders of Lightning Cleanze, which needs 7 working days)
A note about Vat: As we are registered for Vat in both Ireland and the UK, we will continue to charge Vat according to the country you order from. Which makes ordering from Benz simple and straightforward.
Our sincere best wishes for the prosperity of your business and the safety of yourselves and your loved ones,
Ben, Leo & Fiona

We recently tested – just out of curiosity – some old Tornado Cleanze that was nearly two months past it's best-by date. We wanted to find out how long it could be stored for and still produce effective results. And stored badly at that ...

Cleaning caravans and mobile homes is an excellent soft washing market.
The process is simple and straight-forward. And cleaning several on the same day can be highly profitable.

Huge thanks to all our customers for your loyalty in making Benz your softwash product supplier of choice. We appreciate the fact that so many of our trade customers come back to us week after week, month after month, year after year.
And by way of practical appreciation, we've decided to no longer pro-actively seek domestic customers for our products and will not knowingly sell products to the customers of our trade customers, i.e. those who want to play around with d.i.y.

It's a free resource for people wanting to learn about the soft washing industry, to expand an existing business, or build a new business.
Soft washing reduces, or even eliminates, the need to use high-pressure washing.
Instead, once the build up of algae, lichen, fungus, moss and mould – the root causes of properties looking "dirty" – has been treated, the natural "self-cleansing" of sun, rain and wind removes the surface residue through time.
By educating the cleaning trade and public about soft washing we are helping develop an industry that offers sustainable treatments to clean and maintain exterior hard surfaces.
