Roll-over most popular washing option at Dutch petrol stations
At 35 percent of the Dutch petrol stations it is possible to wash a car. Almost 1.500 locations have a car wash option. This can be concluded from figures from data agency Petrolview, which have been requested by the trade magazine CarwashPro.
Washing cars has been an important source of income for the petrol industry for years. Many operators therefore have a washing facility at their location. The most popular washing option at a gas station is still the roll-over, which can be found at more than a thousand gas stations in the Netherlands.
The self-service wash box is also a popular car wash option at petrol stations. Washing tunnels are available at 98 stations. This type of car wash requires of course high investments.
A rollover is the most common type of car wash at a gas station. Many gas stations also offer different washing options. The combination of a rollover with a self-service box is the most popular. There are also locations that offer all options. Fourteen petrol stations have the combination of a tunnel, a roll-over and a washing box.
