Opening a new self-service car wash in the UK can be profitable but you need to ensure that the car wash is located in the best possible place to make sure that this is the case. It’s all very well to choose the best possible car wash systems for your business but you are not going to be as successful as possible if you situate the car wash in an inappropriate area.
What factors to consider about the area when opening a car wash
People do not usually leave home to simply visit a car wash. They usually make the visit while out of their home for other reasons, such as to attend work or to do the weekly shop. This means that you need to know about the people who live in an area, and when they are most likely to use an automatic car wash. You also need to consider how the terrain of the area where the car wash is to be located may help or hinder the experience of your customers.
The demographics of an area
Think about the type of people who live in an area.
- Are there many car owners?
- Are there plenty of multi-occupant homes?
- Is there much available space for people to wash their cars at home?
How close the area is to an industrial space
If you open a car wash close to an industrial area, you can access additional customer potential. You may find that you need to provide washing systems for industrial vehicles and truck washing facilities. The investment will reap rewards as industrial as well as domestic customers will visit your business.
Physical features of the location
Think about choosing a lot for your business that is large enough for customers to be able to easily steer their vehicles around and that enables them to enter easily straight from a main road while enabling them to leave via a quieter road, making it easier for them to set off back on their onward journey.
