Maximum Return on Investment (ROI)

By utilizing a business model that creates the maximum return on your investment from day one, your turnkey automatic car wash project starts producing profit immediately. Our decades of combined experience in the car wash business have helped us to develop the most efficient building plans and designs.

Command Center

To run an automatic car wash with minimal staff requires efficient design and planning. An efficient command center provides one person with the ability to keep an eye on the wash bay, the external canopy, and the lobby area. Good design leads to easy management, minimal staff, and fewer business expenses to cut into your profits and ROI.

Efficient Wash Bay

An efficient wash bay design helps save you money on car wash equipment and chemicals. Vehicles are left sparkling clean with minimal effect on your bottom line. As car wash designers, developers, and distributors, we have the unique ability to manage construction of your wash bay, provide the best equipment the industry has to offer, and keep you well supplied.

Environmentally Friendly

One way our car wash bays immediately start saving you money is through our state-of-the-art water reclamation systems. This system also makes your operation environmentally friendly. In the modern business world where consumers care about sustainability and a reduced environmental fingerprint, water reclamation saves cash and provides an instant reputation boost in the community.

Easy to Manage

Our car wash building plans make the operation as easy as possible to manage from afar. Minimal staff requirements mean that with just a few key people in place, you can sit back and watch your investment bring in returns. Plus, we offer everything you need for a smooth-running business including car wash management services, so you can put our experience in running car washes since 1991 to work for you.

Car Wash Branding & Identity

Our car wash building design provides plenty of landscape for your brand logo and special promotion displayso. Every aspect of the building is designed to draw consumers to your establishment and to make your brand known as the leader in the community for keeping any type of car sparkling clean.

Storage

For easy service and supply the storage tower opens to both the wash bay (specifically the blower room) and the vacuum area on the exterior of the building.

Chemical Storage

The bulk storage and chemical pod system contained in the secondary tower allows for excess soap and cleaner storage, so your wash can work longer between deliveries without the need to cut back on services.

Branding

We have two separate styles for our express tunnel, including a Dealership design and a Neighborhood design, and both are available in red, blue, and neutral color schemes. The towers also offer superior fascia square footage for large custom signage and advertising.

Branding Options

From a company logo to other signage that advertises your business, we have a car wash construction plan that meets your vision. Color selection and building design options allow us to tailor your turnkey project to meet your unique tastes while keeping constructions costs down with our innovative development process.

From an efficient POS management system to wash bay equipment and vacuum canopy systems, we can provide everything your need for a car wash that provides luxury results. 

Car Wash Chemicals

Using the best car wash chemicals gives your customers the best wash possible. A well-designed building that provides plenty of storage space allows you to save money by buying in bulk and minimizes the number of deliveries that extra employees need to be present for. Once again, Car Wash Pro Designers saves you money while giving consumers the impression that you spend a fortune to give them the best.

Turnkey Car Wash Business Model

In order to start seeing profits immediately, you need a turnkey car wash project that is designed to be convenient for customers. To that end, the business model is designed to provide the payment options that busy car owners want and need.

Full-Service Experience

Some customers want a full-service experience that involves talking to a person regardless of whether the car owner intends to pay with cash or a credit card.  This adds a personal touch to the customer experience without adding additional expense to you because the car wash is designed for one person to serve as cashier and keep an eye on car wash bay operations.

Automated Service

Busy customers may want their experienced fast-tracked by an express lane that lets them pay at an automatic teller. Accepting cash and credit minimizes delays and provides businesspersons with a way to get their car washed on the way to the office, during the lunch hour, or on the way home.

Loyalty Rewards

Providing consumers with a loyalty rewards program is a great way to increase customer loyalty and increase lifetime customer value. To that end, providing an unlimited membership that allows a customer to come back as often as needed at one flat rate can entice car enthusiasts to choose your establishment and recommend it to others.
