Self-service car washes are usually standard open boxes for 6 washing stations. Closed car washes are in most cases manual or robots, and closed self-service car washes are rare. As a rule, such self-service car washes are built into already-existing spaces: sheds or parking lots.

ALLES has already started construction of a demonstration facility of this type for 8 washing stations in St. Petersburg.
Construction size: 20×26 m, ceiling height – 4 m. The required total area is at least 950 m² (including the wiping area, entrances/exits).
The recommended number of washing stations is 8. Plus at least 3 two-post vacuum cleaners in the wiping area. And also a vacuum cleaner and a turbo dryer at washing stations themselves.
The cost of an indoor car wash for 8 washing stations is 15-20% higher in comparison with an open self-service car wash.
At the same time, this concept is sure to give regular high returns regardless of the season.
