Car Washing Industry


Produced for your information by the Australian Car Wash Association


3 October 2011


clean bayIt was like any other Saturday on any weekend at the carwash, cars being cleaned, people around, maintenance chores being done.

It was mid-afternoon that the peace was broken when a couple of men started arguing in one of the bays, continued the argument across the road and finished it with one shooting the other in the leg. No-one else was injured, and the man who was shot is now recovering in hospital.


Budget Direct Insurance produced their new television advertisement at ZOOM Carwash, Chermside Queensland, on 18th September.


This was an exciting experience with a large production crew on site for several hours. It also gave ZOOM  a great opportunity to promote their  soft cloth tunnel.

Watch out for the ad. which should  go to air October/November 2011.
