I live in a small town of around 17,500 people. In town, there are three car washes. All are self serve/in bay touchless automatic combos. Two are right by each other on the north side of town and the other is on the southwest side of town. The owner of the southwest side of town is looking to sell that location as well as another on the south east side that he closed down (I suspect due to antiquated equipment). I mulled buying the southwest location but he’s asking $450k for very old equipment in a 5 self serve 2 touchless automatic setup with very little traffic from my observations. His shut down location is just off the main drag in/out of town with good visibility but a small bank in front of it. I’m pretty confident in the location but does anyone have experiencing rehabbing a 4 self serve/2 touchless automatic car washes? I’d want to rebrand and update with all new equipment with loyalty/rewards. I’m having trouble finding a straight answer on pricing for new equipment. Is there a good place to get a quick estimate online? Does anyone have suggestions for brands or models of automatic washes in a rehab? The seller is asking $250k for the shut down location but it’s been for sale for a very long time and I believe I could get it for a fraction of that. I’m 30 years old and this would be my first investment in any sort of real estate/business. Looking for guidance on gauging viability as well as equipment quoting. Below is a picture from the main drag through town at the main stop light followed by the closer picture of the wash.
