CAR WASHES AT THE QUICK LUBE CENTER
You only change your oil once every 3,000 miles, but you can wash your car at least once a week, according to one retired owner/operator of a facility with two quick lube bays, one in-bay automatic car wash and four self-serve car wash bays. Just think of the revenue operators forfeit by relying totally on a quick lube for their income. Your customers are going to wash their cars somewhere, so why not at your facility? The success of retail super-stores is a clear indication that consumers enjoy the convenience of one-stop shopping. Other markets are extremely successful with the addition of a car wash to their existing theme. Hundreds of auto dealers across the country have recognized the value of a car wash combined with automotive services. We've even had a couple of tire stores add car washes to their locations for their customers' convenience and for the high return on investment.
AUTEC manufactures three primary car wash systems for quick lube centers: soft touch, touch free, and a combination system that provides both. AUTEC also manufactures a soft touch polisher.
