If you want to make your car wash or automotive service business more sustainable and profitable, you might consider using it as an automobile consumer service.
You can now use your vehicle as a parking space for car washing, automotive servicing or other automotive services, according to a new study from the automotive research firm Autonomy.
That’s because, according a report by the automotive consulting firm, the study shows that the automotive industry is looking for new ways to increase its revenues.
Automotive services such as car washing and automotive cleaning are growing as consumers demand more services and more ways to save money.
The industry has been expanding its customer base to include millennials, women, people with disabilities and people who live in poverty, Autonomy’s report said.
The report also found that car-washing, car servicing and other automotive-related services are growing across the United States and in Canada, with the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, South America and the United Arab Emirates also seeing significant growth.
“The automotive industry will continue to grow as people increasingly look for alternatives to traditional, traditional, and traditional-type vehicle-related service providers,” said Scott Smith, vice president of research at Autonomy, in a statement.
“Automotive customers expect that they will be able to do things on their own terms, and they want to be able do things at their own pace.”
The new study, which was conducted by the University of California, San Diego, also found car-washing and car-sales websites are increasing their traffic.
The study found that the number of websites hosting car-related products and services increased by nearly 300 percent between 2012 and 2018.
In 2018, there were more than 1,200 websites hosting a total of 9,822 car-services products and 24,726 car-products sales.
The number of people using these websites grew by more than 8 million between 2012-2018.
Smith said the number one reason consumers are turning to alternative transportation services is because they want more choices in their lives.
“There’s a lot of people who really want to find a way to get around town and have that mobility in their life,” he said.
The research also found online retailers such as Amazon, Ebay and Walmart are gaining popularity, but are only a small portion of the automotive market.
“We’re seeing an uptick in online car-selling services, but there’s still a lot more opportunity for consumers to find and use automotive services that they want and can afford,” Smith said.
“And consumers will continue that trend.”
