Investors bought Spray N Shine Car Wash in Dallas, Oregon in January of 2018.  At that time, it had an AUTEC AES-425 Soft Touch Car Wash alongside five self-service bays.  The original machine which was installed in 2012 has washed 135,000 vehicles and has a captive and loyal customer base.  Many customers would wait in line, but many would bail out of the car wash line or see the line from the street and keep on moving.  Customers suggested that the new owners add a second automatic to one of the self-service bays.  Spray N Shine took that request to heart and put a second AUTEC Soft Touch System right beside the first one.  Customers seem to be comfortable with either machine and take the shortest line like being in the drive through at McDonalds, commented one of the co-owners.  Due to the success and customer satisfaction of the original, Spray N Shine thought that a second one would make a great addition to meet the needs of the growing customer base.  With both machines operating, Spray N Shine can wash a car every two and a half minutes, keeping customer waiting to a minimum.  Even though the older AUTEC is seven years old, it still runs in top-performing fashion.

Check out this dirty Chevrolet HD2500, crew cab, with long wheel base.  The customer was AMAZED at the wash quality the AUTEC provided.  That's a return customer for sure.

To ensure that the back of vehicles are properly cleaned, the rear jog functions simulates a little do-si-do action with each arm taking a turn at the center of vehicle.

This beastly Toyota Tundra with big tires and a lift kit fills up the wash, but the AUTEC performs flawlessly on big trucks and little smart cars as well.  The brushes wrap around the profile of each vehicle individually.  


Owners report that prior to the addition of the new wash, the typical number of vehicles washed at their location was in the 130's to 140's.  Since the new wash, new numbers are in the 220's to 240's.  The conclusion is that they were losing about 100 vehicles per day in good weather.

Congrats Spray N Shine!

If you're feeling a little deja vu about this post, it's no wonder!  Brad and Gail Mattivi of Majestic Car Wash, Pittsburg, Kansas are celebrating their fourth year in a row as the winners of Best of the Best - Pittsburg, in the car wash category.  So you HAVE seen a blog like this before.

AUTEC congratulates them on the consistent cleaning performance of their AES-425 car wash system which obviously keeps their customers happy.  


Stephen and Jana Dalby take car wash operators "to school" with their unique-theme car wash in Coalville, Utah.

"We built the first architecturally-designed car wash in the USA, patterned after an 1800's schoolhouse," advised Mr. Dalby. The name of the wash is Old Rock Car Wash because in 1868, Brigham Young dedicated an old schoolhouse on that very lot and called it, 'The Old Rock Schoolhouse'.
The bell from the belfry is located on the lot and is a historic landmark in the state of Utah.

We are pleased to become part of the rich history of Coalville, Utah and to build the first schoolhouse car wash in the country! The Old Rock Car Wash is designed to promote the rich historical value of the original school," he continued.

He concluded "our experience with AUTEC has been just about perfect. They are just as committed on the support side as they are on the sales side and we couldn't be happier. I would fully recommend them to anyone!"
