Thinking about opening a self-service car wash?
Here are some tips to help you get started.

Before starting the construction of a car wash, it is necessary to select a plot for it

The optimal solution will be a place with high car traffic, for example, near highways or large shopping centers. Availability of infrastructure such as access to water, sanitation and electricity should also be taken into account. For a touchless car wash, a direct connection to the water, sewage and energy networks is required, as well as access to gas or other heating tools.

Although the quality of the washing equipment is important for car owners, special attention should be paid to the location. Touchless car washes are effective if placed near gas stations, apartment complexes and shopping malls.

It is also important to remember that during the investment process, you need to obtain permits, develop a marketing approach and ensure that the location is clearly visible.

If you decide to invest in a touchless car wash, remember that one of the key aspects is the right choice of place.

What should you pay attention to when choosing a plot?

1. The area of the plot should be sufficient for the free maneuvering of vehicles.

2. Land use plan – before building a car wash make sure it is allowed in the area. If a zoning plan does not exist, an application for a permit is required.

3. Access to media – for touchless car washes, connection to electricity, water supply and sewage is required.

4. Favorable location – a car wash located near a motorway, expressway or gas station is an advertisement in itself.

5. Legal conditions – depending on the situation, you can use your plot or look for a plot to buy. Renting is also a good option, but pay attention to the terms of the contract, which should be concluded for at least 10 years

To organize a contactless car wash, it is important to obtain a building permit. If the local development plan does not prohibit the construction of a car wash, you can proceed to the selection of the technology on the basis of which it will be implemented. To obtain a permit, a zoning decision or an excerpt and drawing from the development plan is required.

Among the documents required to obtain a permit is a general design sheet. A map of the plot can be obtained from the geodetic department of the municipal office. The documentation also requires the design of a non-contact car wash.

De-wash offers a technical design that can be presented to officials for a building permit. The time needed to obtain a permit is usually around three months.

Then it is necessary to connect the necessary utilities, such as water, gas and electricity. The last stage is the installation of a touchless car wash, but before it is launched, it is necessary to pass the required checks and inspections by sanitary, construction and fire brigade inspections.
