Most people who are looking to build or buy a car wash use as their primary source of assistance the equipment manufacturer or distributor that they plan to purchase their equipment from. And, in fact, these are the most important people to begin to work with immediately. In addition, there are three other primary sources of information to be accessed to improve your early decision-making.
- Independent consultant to evaluate the site (if a new build) or an existing car wash (if an acquisition). An experienced independent consultant can help you answer the most important question that needs to be addressed first: "Does it make financial sense to build or buy this car wash?" SGA can answer this question, as well as provide valuable information needed to assess the risks going forward.
- Educational organizations and car wash associations that provide seminars and educational information for new investor and exisitng owners.
