If you run a mobile car wash you should have a division, which is dedicated strictly to servicing dealerships in the automotive industry. This division should have services new and used car dealerships, Internet auto sales companies, auto auctions, manufacturers, on-site auto shows, as well as dealerships for RVs, boats, trucks, motorcycles and new farm equipment.
Your Dealership Division should wash for some of the biggest and best in the industry; names like: ADT, Bessmer, AMCI, Lithia, Internet Car Sales, Car Max, Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, Harley Davidson, Auto Nation, Bayliner, Freightliner, International, John Deere, New Holland, CAT, GM, Selectruck, Peterbilt, and more.
How is this possible?
Our company uses Isuzu trucks. These trucks have the same turning radius as the Ford Escort Wagon, a 13,500 GVW, and can carry up to 1,000 gallons of water. A crew of 10 can work off one truck with a maximum capacity of 1,000 feet of pressure hose.
By using non-marring hose you will not scratch the surfaces of cars or special dealership flooring. Your crews can also work at night by installing special million candle watt lights. Another custom feature you can incorporate is a dual 360° swivel hose reels. Your competitors will not have this feature and drag their hoses over the hoods of new cars, causing damage to the other vehicles, thus giving away work to your dealership washing division.
In order to provide the best car wash possible, we use reverse osmosis R/O water, no de-ionized and you should too. Your competitors may use de-ionized and occasionally run the C&W tanks out of capacity, thus discharging acid concentrated water onto new dealership units and etching windows and permanently damaging clear-coats. Some mobile car wash companies average 700 cars per day per truck and need additional de-ionized tanks on board. Washing cars on car lots is very hard work. There are over 1.6 million cars on car lots for sale in the U.S. at any one time, and that’s just new cars. It’s all about logistics, teamwork, and attitude. If you have that and can implement new car dealership lot washing you are good to go. Think about it?
