What is necessary to open an enterprise?
First of all, you need to get permission to build a car wash. To do this, an application is made for the allocation of land for construction in the city administration.
Before this you need:
- prepare a sketch of the building project;
- coordinate with the sanitary and epidemiological station, fire inspection, municipal architects.
After that, you need to write an official letter withrequest permission to build a car wash in the name of the mayor of the city and attach to it all the agreed documents mentioned above. The response letter will be given permission to design. After this, the development of the project begins. The latter undergoes expertise in the Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, the labor protection service, the fire department, the architect, the environmental protection service, and the state expertise.
After receiving the approval of the project, it is necessary to draw up an act for temporary or permanent possession of land and receive a warrant for the construction of a car wash.

- Non-contact. Here, water is supplied in the same way as in the previous one, but the dirt is scraped off by applying chemical agents that corrode it (no rubbing is necessary).
- Automatic. The car rides into the arch, which moves along the car and washes it. This type of washing involves the use of special brushes for rubbing dirt or high water pressure.
- Tunneling. The car drives into the conveyor (moving device), which carries it through various arches and other functional devices that carry out rubbing dirt, applying shampoo, etc. The length of such a tunnel depends on the number of devices.
