We are based in the US and I have never seen one over here.

I've heard of them and seen them. Some had a mechanic on duty as folks messed things up on site. It wasn't close by and high bet isn't doing that anymore. Ask around for where you are it may or may not be allowed??

Heard from a co-worker that a guy in my town opened a place like that. I might have to go check it out. Maybe I'll sit in a chair and watch for awhile until I can't take any more of it.

That can't possibly work. The liability is incredible and unavoidable. {at least in this country}

Not maybe they did it HT even in this state of confusion. Was like a long car wash like strip, help available and perhaps some tools. Haven't been by but has to be closed/shut down by now as I can't imagine how many got towed out of there.


Interesting idea for those not allowed to so much as change a tire where they live and park like under building parking garages for apartments or condo high rises especially. Neat idea and no way now a new one could be done without wild expense, fire controls and liability would be prohibitive.


BTW, HT that place was just North of that Speedway you recall! Tom

You had better have pretty good liability insurance with all the personal injury lawyers out trying to sue everybody these days.

Existing places can be "Grandfathered" until changed to a point. New construction would have to have an unseen catch pit like a concrete swimming pool, ~40 feet deep that is filled with gravel to contain any spills, fire controls etc. The cost per hour to defray those expenses would exceed plain paying to have anything done. Just a plain car wash can't let the water used escape until treated on site.


Haven't seen a place yet do anything but go bankrupt and becomes a donut shop or bank branch.


Place I spoke of HT was Shrewsbury, MA and had only speedometer shop across the street that could fix and calibrate them and reset odometers legally or replace but vehicle was tagged as "miles unknown" most of the time.


Liability insurance would be out of control on top of that, T
