Car washes across the nation experience the brutal effects that weather can have on wash volume. Heavy snows? Everyone stays inside. Roads are clear? Everyone rushes over to get a wash. Rain? No car washes needed. Sunshine? Time to make that finish shine.
But seasonal effects on car wash demand are actually far more impactful in terms of overall car wash operation. Thankfully, they are also far easier to predict and account for. While car washes are busiest in the winter and early spring due to customers eager to remove road salt and grime, the summer months cause a steady dip in demand as higher numbers of individuals are willing to wash their cars at home.
Whether you’re opening your next wash, looking to supply or rehab an established one, or want to break into the car wash industry with your very first site, Tommy Car Wash Systems can help you with unique, industry-leading site development services, equipment packages, and finished building designs. We are here to make sure, above all, that your wash is successful from day one and into the future.
1. Group Buying Power
Tommy Car Wash Systems works directly with car wash equipment manufacturers to buy significant amounts of equipment, and we use that buying power to negotiate with vendors and bring prices down. This group negotiating power works for everyone, giving our vendors bigger sales, bringing down our own prices, and allowing Tommy to offer lower prices for our clients.
