Land Requirements

  • Land Plot
    • Acreage

      The facilitys requires between 1/2 - 3 acres of land.

    • Dimensions

      A plot 150 ft. wide by 250 ft. deep or similar is preferred.

    • Easy Entrance

      The entrance leads customers straight into the pay station area with significant space for stacking. A deceleration lane is recommended when possible.

  • Area
    • Shopping Center Proximity

      Our washes are best located near major shopping centers and among other businesses and attractions. Areas with high traffic counts without this proximity should be avoided in favor of locations with good traffic count near grocery stores, malls, or other retail developments.

    • Keep a 1 Mile Radius

      Avoid building car wash sites within a one mile radius of an existing car wash. This limitation only applies to major car washes we've found that small in-bay or self-serve car washes don't provide any real competition for our design.

    • Favor Traffic Lights

      A traffic light slows traffic and therefore makes it easier for customers to view and access your property. At times lights can create additional congestion but during normal hours on a high-traffic streets a light is a major asset and can have a surprising impact on the number of "impulse washes" who turn in, bolstering your capture rate.

    • Good Visibility

      Your facility should be clearly visible to traffic at a minimum of 100 yards.

    • Local Income Levels

      Generally speaking, a higher average income in an area leads to a more successful car wash. However, everyone needs a clean car and we have proven that our design works just about everywhere in all demographic levels.

  • Street
    • Avoid Divided Highways

      Convenience plays a huge role when customers are deciding to pull into a car wash, and some divided highways can make entrances more difficult. Simple two-way roads offer a significant advantage when it comes to capture rate.

    • 45 mph or Slower

      Fast traffic is harder to stop, causing capture rates to fall. While deceleration lanes can help, it is often best to simply select a location with slower cross traffic.

    • Easy Entrances

      Quick and easy entrances are important, especially as express car washes often depend on impulse purchases. We carefully design our lots for maximum capture and convenience, especially in situations where the wash is connected to a gas station or shopping center.
