Car wash owners here didn’t think to turn off water when it got 16 degrees.
Not a functional one within 5 miles of my house.

The "hot wax" is just scented water, isn't it.

My aunt owns two DIY car washes in AZ, she hasn't made any significant money off of them since AZ made it much more difficult for illegals in that state and her clientele dropped off. She and my uncle bought them in the early 80s, it's just a matter of time until she just shutters them and sells the land.

Good luck. If you don’t have an attendant on site all the time, it will be for sale soon.

Very cool! Are you going to fill a room with quarters and swim in it ala Scrooge McDuck? I would totally do that.

That seems like a really great way to make money.   Except if the EPA would somehow get involved

So to be clear....you're the producer of this video and you also sell information on how buy a car wash?  You profit to expense ratio is off....probably way off.

Interesting. My boss and I have talked about buying a carwash(es) multiple times.

The new auto someone installed over by Wally World has to be making a fortune, that this is packed all the time.

Hey bud, I’ve got some additional revenue I’d like to invest in your operation. If you are cool with cash money and discretion that is.

Quarter car wash and automatic no-touch?? Garbage. I can't believe people use those.

I was in Vegas a couple of years ago for a work thing and there was an international conference going on of car wash owners and manufacturers. Kind of like Shot for car washes I guess. Anyways, saw and overheard just as much weird shit as during Shot.

Very interesting. I have wanted to do something very similar but don’t have the balls.

But lose the hat, or gain a suit to match it, that hat, and that coat is not a good look.

When I go to a car wash in the winter to remove the salt residue, they're not recirculating some of the water they used to wash the last car, right?

In New England the car wash places make a fortune because they put so much salt in the roads.  The places are bare bones, but lines go out on the roads.  The good places have heated water so you can wash when it’s below zero.

When I’m down in GA / SC, the places are much nicer.  Free vacuuming, towels, etc. but they don’t seem to get as much traffic.

I've heard some do recycle their water

Nothing like washing your car with recycled water and a broom that every other tom dick and harry washed their car with. Imagine what's embedded in the fibers of that brush that you're washing your car with?

Fine if you dont give a shit about your car.
Link Posted: 2/20/2021 8:04:09 PM EST
Think of the how much more money that same car wash would make in Florida or a southern state. I looked into a car wash about seven years back, a single drive thru automatic car wash cost $100k and that was not including infrastructure. The top of the line car wash with all the bells and whistles was around $200k.

Sweet fedora!  The coin collection doors don’t weigh 35 lbs.  Otherwise great video. I’ve been thinking of businesses to buy - self storage, car wash, etc.  Great  info.    

I’m a financial planner and have a client that owns 15 full service car washes and just sold them for almost $100 million to a private equity firm. Unbelievable how much money some of these can make.

I did a bunch of work in the self serve bays for a company around here. He had a vacuum system to bring the quarters in the equipment room, used a shop vac motor and pvc pipe. to suck the change in to a safe. It would wear out the pvc pipe at the turns every few months. He pretty generous with giving us handfuls of quarters because we knew how the counting of cycles allowed him to skim, he needed to play nice. He got audited pretty often and never got caught so his system was pretty good.

The self serves really are pretty simple.

A buddy of mine opened up an automated drive-thru car wash 3 years ago.
24 vacuum lanes, real nice facility.

He has broke ground on another across town, and bought land in another town to build more.

He's fuckin killing it.
