If you don't have any funds to support the car wash I'd wait until I had build up some working capital. Good quality Tokens are expensive.

Rooster, will your existing coin mechs accept tokens? As Randy posted they come with a cost. Have any pics of your washes to post?
Something may jump out at a forum member that could help you in making the wash more profitable.

Yes, they will accept tokens. Ppl have snuck them in on me until I went to my slugbusters and stopped accepting them. I will post some pics and or video as soon as I can. I appreciate that.

Hi, please fill us in why you are STILL taking and dispensing Coins of any type..
Coins are becoming a Dinosaur?
A real Pain in the Ass! :)

IF you decide to take tokens, an approach to consider would be somewhere between carwashboy's and soonermajic's, that is, start moving away from quarters, and IF you do try tokens, get a good control token (to prevent crossovers from Chuck E. Cheese or your competitors down the road) and make the token value $1 or $5 depending on your market. I personally believe the quarter has gone the way of the dime at our washes thanks to runaway inflation and they really are a pain in the ass with the banks. And as sooner said, you make pure profit when a token walks away

I recommend dispensing only your proprietary $1 tokens….

Accept the customers quarters and $ coins, and of course CC’s….

it can be a small pain in the arse to sort and shuffle the quarters….all the way to the bank…!

Best of luck!
