I found the only thing worse than a single use vac at an express car wash…. elevated single use vacs at an express car wash! LOL 🙂
There seems to be a big push everywhere for single use vacs at an express? Why? The excuse I always hear from operators is money…. But if money is the problem…. PURCHASE USED VACS? But you want a good central vac system. Also does anyone seriously charge for their vacs at an express? Would that not make you a self serve with a tunnel then? (I have seen that also.) Look at a real companies ad or website like Sonny’s they can help more. They did “invent” or introduce the express wash industry. Also seriously do not purchase individual vacs…. you have other things to maintain.
Other people have cited this article to death…. Choosing the Right Vacuum System Regardless of the type of wash facility @ www.carwashmag.com 01/01/16 by: David H. VanGorder Doyle Vacuum Systems LLC. www.doylevacuum.com
When reading the article just remember…. the article is based off of this statement: “when I came into the car wash industry about 15 years ago, I remember talking to operators”.
Questions not answered:
Should I control access to my tunnel or just my vacs? 🙂
I have never seen anyone giving away anything for “free”? There is always a catch…. in this case $5-$20! LOL 🙂
