A new car wash is proposed at Asda in Blackpool

A proposed car wash in Blackpool, England has a rather unique business model in place should it get approved. Customers to the Asda grocery store would have the option of parking at a car wash bay while they went in to buy groceries. By the time they were back in the car and ready to go, their vehicle would be clean.

Car Park Valeting Ltd has applied for a permit to build that business, according to The Gazette.  The proposal shows a hand washing station with nine parking spaces for customers. There would also be a canopy built over those nine spaces and a small office space nearby for workers.

The business is touting that it would bring a few jobs to the area. “The operation will employ an average of eight staff made up of two full time staff and a combination of part-time and weekend staff,” the design proposal reads. Car Park Valeting Ltd has 90 locations throughout England and more than 15 years in the business.

The business would also offer interior cleaning, jet washing, waxes, vacuuming and polishing at an additional cost per service. The business plan is reminiscent of other car wash businesses that have cropped up lately, including remote car washing and traveling car wash businesses, in which employees go to you and wash your vehicle while you’re at work or at home. We’ve written about those businesses in other blog posts.
