Australian Car Wash Association             

Can you survive without ACWA ....


While your business runs smoothly day by day,

you may think that being a member of ACWA is not essential.  But ACWA survives on members' fees and if there is not enough support from the car washes and industry suppliers then ACWA will cease to exist. 

No wages or OH&S hotlines, no regulator negotiations on chemicals, water restrictions, legionella or whatever crisis comes up next. No information gathering.  No stakeholder and public education campaigns promoting the car wash industry. No safety net at all


ACWA promotes a strong, united partnership between industry suppliers, car wash operators and ACWA, your industry association

Do you Dogwash?

Did you know that 70% of families own a pet? and that most of those pets are dogs? You can offer another service at your site that will better your business.   How easy is it - you wash your car and you wash your dog all at the same location.  ACWA member, Greg Scott has long sung the praises of dogwashes in fact, he presented on

this topic at a past ACWA Convention - he says ... 


".. After the last 7+ years with two dog washing machines I decided to upgrade this area of my carwash site.   

I contacted ACWA and sold my 2 old dogwashes in the CLASSIFIEDS area of their website.   

I now have one brand new dog wash  unit operating and hopefully will purchase the second one in September.

WOW - What a difference this has made to my bottom line and my customers (and their dogs) are so excited with how simple and easy the new dogwash is to use.  Even better I have had a steady increase in new customers which certainly is a good sign for my next machine.."
