In every business, it is important to know the concepts behind the industry you wish to be involve. This will help you keep alive in the business industry as well as the competition. In carwash, it is necessary to get to know the latest technologies employed in washing cars. Define your potential clients, their demographics and then find a way to win their trust. Do a little research about the average pricing of the service and try to look for ways to beat your competition in the area. But what’s more important is studying the most effective car washing processes.


2.Find the best location for your shop.

Before you could actually put up your shop, you should find time to count the number of potential clients within your area. Your space should be big enough preferably bigger than 100 square meters with adequate water supply. Carmudi suggests that the speed limit in an area should not be higher than 60kph in order to allow motorist to make a split second decision as they see the signage.


3. Purchase necessary equipment and hire trusted employees.

Archie Ocampo, carwash proprietor, said in an article for Entrepreneur that he spent about P50,000 for carwash tool and supplies including the pressure washer, car shampoo, air compressor, chamois, micro fibers, jelly blades, rotary buffer and industrial blower. In addition, you need to hire reliable employees and train them efficiently about car washing.
