Undercarriage wash

Does anyone out there know where I can get an undercarriage wash in the Edmonton area. I didn't get the 1 ton into the steamcleaners at work before they shut down for the season, and the dealership wants 500 to do, seems more than a little steep.

I am looking for something a little higher pressure that can get between skid plates, in the transmission tunnel and those hard to reach areas. The coin type washes are ok when I take my wheel ramps in, but they lack the power to get rid of the dried on mud that I get at work. I will probably take your suggestion anyway, at least it will get some of the debris off.

I've tried almost everything on my work truck, and really the only thing I've found that works is to let the dried on mud pre-soak as long as you can. That helps to soften it up. Sometimes I try to fund creeks and puddles to drive through, to soak the underside of the truck, on the way back to town. I'm worried about the really high pressure truck washes because they can take off paint, and drive water past seals, etc., and screw up electrical connections if you're not careful. Sometimes you can't get it all off in one go. Let it warm up and soak as much as you can (if you can!). Other than that, because now it's winter, you might have to live with it for a few months.
