Used car wash equipment, once it has been refurbished and resold by equipment service companies, is commonly sold to car wash startups as an alternative to more expensive new equipment. The costs associated with starting up any business can be high, and purchasing used equipment is one way that startups can save money.

When a car wash company decides to replace its equipment, instead of disposing of old equipment, it can sell it to a company that will refurbish it and then resell it. This process reduces waste and contributes to a diversity of options in the market. Water jets, brushes, dryers and all kinds of other car wash system components often can be refurbished and reused. This is true of used automated car wash parts as well as parts from self service car washes. For an individual interested in starting their own car wash business, starting with all new equipment is a costly choice. Buying used car wash equipment is an economical choice, in comparison to buying it new or renting. There are many carwash consignment businesses, most of which are online. Depending on the size of the business, it can offer some individual parts or as much as an entire car wash system. In either case, it is important for potential customers of such companies to thoroughly examine the history and current quality of the parts in which they are interested.
Many new car wash equipment manufacturers purchase old equipment and parts, which they sell at a discounted price. Prospective car wash owners have two choices when it comes to used car washes: they can buy pre-owned equipment or an entire business. Many car wash consignment operations offer very inexpensive parts and equipment that are in perfect working condition. Car washes need blowers, vacuums, motors, air compressors, light bars and many more machines and equipment, all of which can be purchased second hand. Automated car washes will need pressure sprayers or cloth brushes, a sensory digital control system, a set of tracks or conveyer system and industrial-sized heating dryers. Self service washes need water guns, coin operating machines, booms and water pumps. Pre-owned mobile car wash trucks or vans are also often available for purchase.
