LATHAM, NY — The results are in for the Professional Carwashing & Detailing 2012 Self-Serve Industry Benchmark Report, and some findings might be a bit shocking to a few of you.

For example:

  • 49% of those surveyed said they are located in a suburban area;
  • 42% of those surveyed said they do accept tokens; and
  • 9% said they offer self storage units as an additional profit center.

The annual survey is made possible by the owner/operators who took the time to answer the online survey which was emailed to them during the month of November. The final analysis is not a scientific study and was conducted using Zoomerang survey software.

If you’re interested in seeing the entire survey, please contact Associate Publisher Sandy Murphy at or call 518-640-9169. Please note, the survey is free to all paid subscribers.
