  • Car washing has never been a more profitable endeavor. With more cars on the road and the frequent implementation of municipal regulations that prohibit car washing in driveways and parking lots due to waterway pollution, car wash owners are experiencing heavier volumes and frequencies of customer purchases. Total annual car wash sales are estimated to exceed $24 billion! This is an industry that is experiencing tremendous growth, and external factors are ensuring that this trend won’t be going out of fashion anytime soon.

  • Starting a car wash business is a serious investment, as most profitable businesses are! Depending on whether you are starting from scratch, have land, or are retrofitting an already-standing building that you own, the investment will definitely vary. Starting from scratch car wash businesses can cost from between $1 million to $5 million USD. There are many factors to consider, such as location, real estate, business model and the type of car wash that you want to build. To make sure that you are ready to undertake this exciting venture, you should consult with a sales representative and assess your financing options.

There is no right answer to this, because different wash systems are better for different reasons. MacNeil offers two different types of car wash systems: the In-Bay Express Mini Tunnel, and the Express Wash Tunnel, and each of these can come in different configurations and sizes. The In-Bay Express Mini Tunnel is better suited for business owners with limited space, because 35′ is all it takes to build one of these profitable Mini Tunnels. Here are some benefits of the In-Bay Express Mini Tunnel:
– Easy conversion from a slow-moving in-bay automatic that requires only 35 feet
– Triple your throughput to as many as 50+ cars per hour
– Increase profits with wheel and tire add-ons
– Lower installation costs with shorter downtime and little or no site changes
– Reduce water and formula consumption

The Express Wash Tunnel really is the Mercedes of car wash systems. It is a larger investment, however it provides a variety of functions and services that will bring customers back for more! They can come in 4 different configurations: 85′, 100′, 120′, and 150′. These tunnel systems are better for people whose main business is car washing, whereas In-Bay Express Mini Tunnels are more ideal as secondary operations to convenience store owners, fleet rental agencies and car dealerships.
