WHY IQ EXPRESS
When you need additional wash capacity to handle higher potential volume than traditional in-bay automatic sites.

By greatly increasing your throughput rate coupled with a rise in your average ticket price. Furthermore, the cost to build and operate an IQ Express is substantially lower than any type of Tunnel Wash.

IQ EXPRESS METRICS
In our research and development of the IQ Express, D&S worked closely with several successful car wash owners to test, analyze and refine both the operational elements as well as the economic model on which it is based. Our data was compiled over many months of field tests and documented results from car washes operating comparable IQ-based express systems. We also utilized industry statistics from reputable trade organizations and input by numerous independent car wash professionals.
These sources and steps resulted in validated data covering: volume, capacity, wash times, revenue and costs across standard IBA's, the IQ Express and Express Tunnels. We utilized the data to develop comparative models such as the chart below, as well as pro forma investment tools.
