With a population of more than 225 million people and more than 140 million registered cars, you can easily state that Nigeria on the African continent is an interesting market for car wash entrepreneurs. If you Google “is it profitable to start a car wash business in Nigeria?” you will soon stumble upon countless YouTube clips and instruction websites. Some more useful than others.

Recently, news website Najiagists.com came up with a comprehensive guide on how to start a car wash the proper way. Apart from a lot of open doors (‘develop a business plan’, ‘hire employees’, ‘find a good location’) the writer also comes up with some more useful tips.

Luckily, the writer does not forget the health and safety issues, such as providing first-aid equipment and providing protective gear for your staff.

‘Stay organized’, might sound like an open door. But in a chaotic city like Lagos (with almost 16 million inhabitants) , it sure makes sense to streamline and organize your finances and logistics.
