In-Bay Washes: Pros and Cons

With the new Tommy In-Bay Conveyor system refit taking off in car washes around the country, we thought it would be a good idea to take a step back and look at a few of the advantages and disadvantages of small in-bay automatic car washes, and how our conversion system can completely transform an old in-bay at a very reasonable price point.

 

In-Bay Automatic Advantages

-In-Bay Automatic car washes don’t require much staff and are very cheap to operate

-With a very small footprint these washes fit on gas station and convenience store lots, adding value to standard services

-They work well in smaller communities between 10 and 20,000—too small a population for a full sized express tunnel_

In-Bay Automatic Disadvantages

-Saturation doesn’t denote success. These in-bay washes are everywhere and many of them are increasingly ignored in favor of better options

-They don’t suggest value. These little ‘black hole’ car washes aren’t much to look at and they do a bad job convincing customers that they are worth the money or the time

-They are slow. Max car counts in these systems are very low and that makes for a much lower profit potential_Conveyor Retrofit Schematic

Our Conveyor Refit:

-BOOSTS car counts with a short version of the Tommy Conveyor, moving more cars through the wash faster and making the operator more money

-Provides a better end-to-end wash and dry with our all-in-one miter/shaker combo system, resulting in cleaner, dryer cars and earning the right to a higher ticket price

-Uses self-loading automatic car wash systems so you don’t need to dedicate staff members to running the car wash

-Modernizes the process for maximum efficiency

Potential clients should also consider the Totally Tommy Mini as an alternate solution to your small scale car wash needs.
