Hello Guys, im actually thinking of opening a auto car wash in pakistan. I need your suggestions as to how successful this project can be in Islamabad. I've heard of the auto car wash by PSO but upon reading what services they offer, i think it is extremely expensive for a normal person. I'm looking to attract the middle class person. My target would be to attract customers atleast 2 times a week at a rate which they can afford.
Finding a place in islamabad would not be hard and my equipment would be imported from China. There is not much need for water because water used on cars can be recycled and used again and again. The soap and wax can be obtained from here in USA and i have a few companies who can provide me with the necessities. I would like to model the car wash on the car washes here in New York. There should also be a small accessories shop and rates should be a little high for SUVs.
In my view, the rate for a regular wash without tire armorall should be rs. 125 and for SUVs rs. 150 and including armorall should be rs. 25 extra for cars and rs. 50 for SUV s.In my view, this project should be costing me around rs. 10 million.
In the end, im looking for your views on what you people in pakistan think about this venture. I need the opinion of all pakwheelers. Thank you.
I really hope this idea does not get stolen.
