Frequently Asked Questions
How do I determine the location with the highest probability for success?
It is a combination of the following items: Traffic quantity and speed, and visibility & access of the site are major factors. Not only these but we also take into account retail quality of site, orientation, size, demographics, competition, neighboring business synergy, and growth potential.
What constitutes an A, B, or C location? What can I expect from these?
A sites score high on all categories mentioned above. B sites will have weakness in one or 2 categories. C sites will have more weakness. With Lower scoring sites it becomes increasingly important to be objective to fully understand the areas that pull the score down. We recommend compiling additional research on the weaker categories. The additional information can be very helpful in determining if and what you build. We have dedicated team members who can help you with this assessment.
Where can I find secure financing to develop my project?
Your local bank can be an excellent source for financing. Ask your local bank if they offer programs backed by SBA. Do not underestimate the amount of capital required to build a car wash.
Where Do I begin?
Contact us at (561) 727-8787 and we can provide consulting services in order to answer all of your questions.
What should I look for in an architect to design my wash?
Car Washes are unique! It is advisable to find professionals who have previous experience and who can help visualize your ideas and make them reality.
How do I select a GC to build?
Rely heavily on your local car wash distributor to help you select your professional team. We have years of experience and can help guide you.
What do I need to know about the equipment I am going to install? What is the best/most reliable on the market?
Look first to the most successful manufacturers in the industry, the companies that have the largest existing customer bases and repeat buyers. I would also look for a company that could help me with all facets of the business.
What does ICS provide that is unique in the market?
ICS has been successfully supporting the South Florida car wash operator for more than 20 years. We have an in-depth knowledge of our local market and are uniquely positioned to support you with all aspects of car wash development and successful operation.
Can you help with multiple site development?
Yes, We often build and support multiple sites for clients in their chosen markets.
What is the average timeline on a project from planning to breaking ground to open?
Ground Up projects in South Florida can take 18 to 24 months to build. Renovations to existing washes are substantially less due to the fact they are already operating as a car wash. Regardless of what you are looking for, ICS can help you develop plans and a timeline for a successful project launch.
Why should I choose building a car wash as opposed to other investments?
Car Wash is not for everyone. I would encourage anyone contemplating entering the business to learn as much as you can before making the investment. Learn from your local car wash distributor: this is such an important relationship to develop early on.
