Great Start-up Car Wash Equipment

If you would like to learn more about what you’ll need to set up a car wash, these explanations of some of the most important car wash machineries will point you in the correct direction:

  • High pressure cleaners play a key role in the effective and speedy car wash. Being speedy and effective is a key ingredient in the success of a prosperous car wash. Its high pressure foam, combined with soap sprays and water will clean every corner of the vehicle in a way that other equipment will be hard pressed to accomplish. With so many machines available on the market, you can invest in systems that will effectively clean your vehicles and all its parts.
  • A tunnel system will help ensure the smooth progress of vehicles through the entire car wash system. The conveyor is perhaps one of the most important pieces of equipment you can invest in, as it will run through the entire tunnel, where under-body washes, foamers, air dryers and top brushes, tire treatments and rain arches are all fitted at various different points of the tunnel system. The conveyor will guide the car through each step to have it cleaned and dried by the end of the system.
  • Support equipment like vacuum cleaners and mopping equipment shouldn’t be ignored. This type of equipment will make all the difference with regards to customer satisfaction. Here you can go the extra mile to make sure that your customers feel they receive value for money and also feel as though your staff have gone the extra mile to ensure their vehicles are truly cleaned well.
