Yes, currently in foreign countries, payment stations support the three methods of coin/banknotes/credit cards. China is currently unable to achieve this type of charging system because credit card receipts and payments require cooperation with local banks. But we can leave the signal wire for the car washing machine in advance, understand the signal wire of the payment machine and just connect the two signals. We are experienced in this area.
Except for the professional car washer agents that we cooperate with (acting for our brands and also for European and American car washer brands), it can be said that most of the other customers are the first time to come into contact with a fully auto car washer. Our equipment is actually very simple to maintain, and the operation manual also gives detailed regular maintenance instructions. For example: regularly apply engine oil to the chain, empty the air inside the compressor every day when the business is closed, wipe the surface of the sensor every day, and so on.
If the equipment fails, the touch screen will give an alarm record. The operator only needs to take photos of the faulty part and the alarm record. We may still need the signal light photo of PLC, after that, our technicians will give the troubleshooting method to find the problem and solve it. Every step is operated after our guidance, which is very easy to handle. And the equipment has high stability, so there is no need to worry about the failure rate.
The water and electricity consumption of each model is different. The cost of washing a car needs to be calculated based on the local water and electricity bills. At the same time, the rent and the cost of equipment depreciation need to be considered. Refer to the charging standards of manual car wash shops in the same city and the charging standards of competitors for fully automatic car washes to customize profitable and competitive prices.
The gold rule of omnipotence: the location with high traffic volume is the prime location. Such as gas stations, highway intersections, large supermarkets, large parking lots, dense residential areas, etc.
This is one of the advantages of TOPWELL equipment. If an accessory is broken at the peak of the car wash time, there is no time to replace it with a new accessory. The operator can manually turn off that function on the touch screen without affecting the normal operation of other functions. Damaged accessories can be replaced when the shop is closed at night.
Many customers like to ask the agent at the beginning of the communication. Here we have three suggestions for it:
a) Basic cooperation
b) Own installation and maintenance team
c) Minimum annual sales
