Car Wash Displays, Signage & More
Americans spend so much time in their cars—an average of more than 17,600 minutes behind the wheel each year, according to a survey from the American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety.
“The amount of time the average driver spends behind the wheel each year is equivalent to seven 40-hour weeks at the office,” says Jurek Grabowski, research director for the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. “It’s clear that traveling by car remains a central part of American’s lives.”
With that in mind, it makes sense that drivers want their automobiles to look good both inside and out, so it’s not surprising that car washes are a thriving business in the United States. The car wash service market size, in fact, was valued at $14.21 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.8 percent from 2021 to 2028.
If you own a car wash—or are thinking of opening one—you’ll want to make sure that it stands out from the competition and is a place customers will come to repeatedly. One way to set your business apart is through the creative use of car wash displays and car wash signs.
Car wash signs are crucial for attracting drivers to your business, as well as keeping them informed when they arrive and where to go for specific services like vacuums and oil change services. Customized flags positioned outside the location, near the front door and at the entrance to the wash area are an eye-catching way to get people to pay you a visit. And a customized banner that can be kept inside the car wash, near the entrance to the location where cars pull in, and positioned at the front door where they will go in to pay are also important car wash sign display options. The 31.5"w display banner with L frame single sided custom print is a lightweight, strong, and durable car wash sign.
Car wash signs are also needed to keep customers in-the-know about special sales and membership information (buy 10 washes, get one free, for example) at the location. Countertop signs can be set up at the cashier and service areas to list prices, advertise upcoming sales and encourage customers to sign up to your email list. And don’t forget about using your wall space for car wash signs, like our 11 x 17 slide-in poster frame. In addition to paying to have their vehicle cleaned, your car wash might also offer merchandise, including air fresheners, auto glass cleaners, microfiber cloths, and more. Set up an effective car wash display with the use of slatwall displays, which can keep all of these items organized and easy to find through the use of shelves, trays and bins. It’s also wise to put some of these items up at the cashier counter for last minute purchases. Our Acrylic Adjustable Dump Bin Display has removable dividers and is a great piece for loose items. And the Three Tier Wood Crate Display with Casters can easily be moved around your space when needed.
If your car wash location sells snacks, consider car wash displays that can hold a variety of non-perishable items. The four tier round basket stands can create a mouth-watering chip and candy display, while the three tier counter top display is ideal for impulse buys. And don’t forget about keeping supplies organized for your employees. Soaps, cloths and sponges can be kept on our five shelf rolling wire display, which can be moved inside with ease when it’s time to close down for the day.
