Touchfree car washes enjoy high popularity and develop at a rapid pace due to their profitability. Touchless systems include hand car washing based on efficient detergents dissolved in water, which serve as the major cleaning agent, and self-service pressure washing. For this purpose, the user needs to reach for the high pressure lance and select, depending on the rinsing mode, the programme of his choice by pressing an appropriate button.
The customer may select one of the four cleaning programmes:
- Basic wash with detergents and softened warm water
- Rinse with municipal water
- Hot wax treatment
- Finishing rinse with demineralised water
You’re also invited to choose additional washing programmes, functions and equipment that will increase the profitability of your business.
- Active foam pre-wash
- Active foam pre-rinse
- Vacuum cleaning
- Change machines
- Change machines accepting credit cards or direct credit card systems
- Windscreen washer distributors
- Solar water heating system
- Compressors and many other facilities
The systems provided by our company gained ground thanks to their low price, round-the-clock availability, a wide array of programmes, cleaning durations and quality levels to choose from.
The proposed investment aims at increasing capital in the short run by satisfying the real needs of target customers, who are open to similar car washing solutions. Investing in touchless car washes should pay for itself within the maximum period of 5-6 years provided that the investor chooses a convenient business location and cares for the cleaning quality.
This type of business is not susceptible to the economic crisis. In difficult economic times, an increase in the general turnover observed in the touchless carwash industry is caused by the fact that customers give up costly services (manual or automatic car washing) and opt for less expensive self-service solutions.
Being aware of the current economic situation and bearing the sales results of our competitors in mind, we may come to the conclusion that the average occupancy rate of car washing points in densely populated cities amounts to around 30% of the daily time. For the sake of comparison, our company’s occupancy rate is expected to reach up to about 15% of the daily time.
