The 2011 Conveyor Carwash Benchmark Survey Report

March 16, 2011

The 2011 Conveyor Industry Benchmark Report is made possible by the 90 owner/operators (representing 240 locations) who took the time to answer the online survey which was e-mailed to them during the month of February. The staff of Professional Carwashing & Detailing thanks those persons for their time and effort. If you have questions about participating in next year’s survey, please e-mail the magazine’s editor, Debra Gorgos, at

The final analysis is not a scientific study and was conducted using Zoomerang survey software.
