The plot for the construction of self-service car wash must meet two basic criteria: an attractive location and sufficient space to build the facility. To be considered as an attractive plot of land for construction of non-contact car wash should meet as many of the following criteria:
- location near the large gatherings of people such as the town center, residential houses, blocks, towns over 5,000 inhabitants,
- location along major streets and roads, at junctions, roundabouts, at enhancing the attractiveness of objects, such as petrol stations, gas stations, shopping malls, supermarkets, shops, diagnostic stations, etc.
- good visibility of the object,
- easy access, the possibility of turning to the right and left,
- suitable land area, so that you can set the car wash with the possibility of passage, which increases comfort
The following table summarizes the minimum area for the construction of self-service car wash, depending on the number of stands and number of vacuum cleaners.
|Car wash type
|Lot size for car wash
|Lot size with access
|2-bay module car wash
|3-bay module car wash
|4-bay module car wash
|4-bay container car wash
|5-bay module car wash
|5-bay container car wash
|6-bay module car wash
|6-bay container car wash
Additionally, there is the possibility of placing a vacuum cleaner. We assume that a area needed for cleaning the interior of the car is 20 m2. So for every such positions you need 20m2, plus accesses.
