 7 OUT OF 10 CONSUMERS USE PROFESSIONAL CAR WASHES MOST OFTEN

CHICAGO (June 18, 2012)—In a recent study commissioned by the International Carwash Association®, 69 percent of respondents reported using professional car washes most often. This statistic is up from 52 percent in 1996.

“We find it very exciting that each time we survey, the needle keeps moving up for professional car washing,” commented the CEO of the International Carwash Association, Eric Wulf. “In roughly 15 years, we’ve gone from 1 in 2 to 7 in 10 people choosing a professional car wash most often. This is a great testament to consumers’ understanding that choosing a professional wash is a significant way to reduce their ecological footprint.”

The study’s findings also show significant differences between low- and high-frequency car washers, specifically in the area of environmental issues. High-frequency car washers indicated that the International Carwash Association WaterSavers® program increased their likelihood to wash their vehicle more frequently at a professional car wash. Numbers showed that that these same respondents would be more willing to drive out of their way or pay more to wash their vehicle at a WaterSavers car wash.

Details about the study’s findings are available in the summer issue of CAR WASH Magazine, due out mid-June. The findings will also be made available to car wash business leaders for discussion at The Car Wash Retailing Summit™ in Chicago, September 27-28, 2012.
