9 Must Haves for Car Washes

Only you know whether or not your location needs tried and true equipment or high-end gear like the world's most expensive car wash. These 9 tools are must haves for every car wash even if you can't hold them in your hand:

  • Vending Machines
    Increasing sales without increasing labor costs isn't a pipe-dream. Well-stocked vending machines can provide the DIY-minded visitor with helpful single-use cleaning supplies, or provide refreshment to the full-service customer waiting for their car to be readied. It's as easy as picking your products and waiting for the rewards to roll in.

  • Glass Cleaner
    If eyes are the windows to our souls, then windshields are the eyes of a car. A full-service detailing that ends with something other than crystal clarity will leave your customers disappointed.

  • Blowers/Dryers
    According to a survey, drying issues are a frequent source of customer complaints. In addition to outfitting your bays with the highest quality blowers and dryers, it's a good idea to stock plenty of micro-fiber towels in case additional hand-drying is required to ensure your customers leave dry and happy.

  • Little Trees
    Driving is a full sensory experience: the sound of the engine, the feel of the steering wheel, the shine of a clean exterior. Scent has been linked to the parts of the brain that create emotional memories. Paying attention to this powerful sense will keep your customers engaged and coming back time and again.

  • Exterior Signage
    No matter how much a driver loves their vehicle, it can be easy to get distracted by the demands of life once they get behind the wheel. A trip to a car wash quickly transforms into a trip to the store, or a trip to the bank, and then the car wash waits. A visually striking sign will get drivers' attention and remind them of the importance and ease of maintaining their vehicle.

  • Updated Website
    In the age of online shopping, customers are doing in-depth research before they leave the house. A well-maintained website is like virtual signage. It lets customers know you are open for business and communicates your values through visual branding.

  • Anti-Collision Systems
    We are in the business of caring for people's most-treasured possessions. It doesn't matter how good the upholstery looks if they drive out of your bay with a freshly bent fender. Protect your customers, employees, and your profits with automated safety equipment.

  • High Quality Chemicals
    Would you put cheap ketchup on a prime cut of filet mignon? Your customer's car deserves the best and the options are endless when it comes to washing chemicals. You can use a wax-based shampoo, no-rinse, or an environmentally friendly product. No matter what, you need to focus on quality.

  • Vacuums
    You can't judge a book by its cover; and you can't judge a car's cleanliness by its exterior. A study at the University of Birmingham found that the interior of a car has nine times more bacteria than the average toilet seat. If you're not equipped to clean the whole car, then you're doing your customers a disservice.
