Live blog: CWSE2019 | Car Wash Tours

The exhibition is not yet open, but today we kick off with the Car Wash Tours. Over 200 visitors from all over the world will be visiting three notable car washes around Amsterdam. The tours are a great opportunity to see the newest trends and innovations in action and meet internationals colleagues. The tours proved very popular, there are no tickets left. By following this live blog you can still be part of the tours! Scroll down for the photogallery! 

Kromhouthal We’re getting started! It’s already getting crowded and the Kromhouthal is buzzing with excitement. In an hour or so the buses will be off to Purmerend, Wormerveer and Zaandam.

CarwashPlus, Purmerend Gert Goedhart has been running the CarwashPlus for about a year and a half now. The wash is located in an old steel factory, which they completely transformed. The cars are pulled along a fifty meter conveyor belt, afterwards customers can make use of one of the twenty vacuuming stations. After CarwashPlus started, two more washes opened closeby. To make sure this wash is the most attractive, they offer free use of the machines that clean the mats – amongst other little extra’s.
CarwashPlus had another location in Haarlem. The one in Purmerend is ‘middle sized’, says Gert. After the remodelling of the building, soms space was stil left. One floor above the conveyor belt, you can find a gym and an escape room. 

One2Wash, Zaandam This location is powered by 1300 solar panels and recycles up to 80% of its water. However, Edward Verdoold offers not only car washes at three different locations including in Zaandam, but also a place for GoCart-Race enthusiasts. “This only happened because of my son. But people love it!” Next  the 38 meter long conveyor the hall offers 20 vacuum spots, free to use for all wash customers. But apart from that the hall also allows for GoCart-Races. Go One2Wash!

AtTheCarWash Company, Wormerveer The final car wash in the tour was AtTheCarWash Company in Wormerveer. This location has a petrol station and is notable for its shape. The building is shaped like a boomerang. The facility has a couple of wash boxes, a conveyor belt and a washing facility for larger vehicles. WashTec is the supplier of the installations. Preparations for a expansion are well on its way. A vacuuming station is expected in 2020. The facility was built within seven months in 2012. The petrol station is from Argos Oil, they make use of the FuelWash concept.

Tomorrow the editorial team of CarwashPro will be live blogging about day 1 of the Car Wash Show Europe. The workshop programme and the Award ceremony will be discussed in detail.
