Professional Carwashing & Detailing

Hybrid IBA Buying Guide

October 11, 2010
In the last few years, Professional Carwashing & Detailing has noticed an ever-growing interest in hybrid in-bay automatic carwashes — the machines that offer touchless, friction and combination options in one automatic bay.

Manufacturers claim these machines have the ability to far outpace traditional rollovers and high-pressure automatics in revenue and profit.

In interest of helping carwash operators across the nation, the magazine has compiled a list of manufacturers that currently sell hybrid units. The chart below serves as a guide to the hybrid market, including features, costs, and dimensions of the various units available.

It should not be considered a comprehensive evaluation, but rather a means for comparison and study. For more information, please contact the manufacturer directly by using the website provided.

PC&D thanks the manufacturers for their cooperation in sharing information and making this project possible.
