For new investors and established carwash owners alike, staying up to date on the various carwash types and trends is critical to ensure optimal and lucrative operations.

While the Professional Carwashing & Detailing team anxiously waits to share some key results of the recently launched 2016 PC&D Carwash Industry Benchmark Survey in our June issue, we created a brief infographic, provided below, which shows a few of the differences among conveyors, in-bay automatics and self-serves.

For new investors entering the carwashing market, staying up to date on the various carwash types and trends is key. And with the prevalent competition in the industry, this holds true for established carwashes as well.

Doing your due diligence, whether a rookie or a veteran carwash owner/operator, to ensure your car care business succeeds means researching the latest technologies and techniques, staying current on industry-related news and trends, and attending industry trade shows, such as the The Car Wash Show™ 2016.

In addition, implementing effective customer management practices and modern marketing strategies can help carwashes stay ahead of the competition and boost their bottom lines.
