According to Owner and Managing Director of the facility Joachim Bayah the idea has been in the pipeline for over fifteen years and expressed profound privilege to have been able to see it completed.
According to him, the facility was built from the ground by Guyanese using imported technology and reminded that the success of the business will also depend 100 percent on Guyanese.
Persons desirous of having their vehicles washed can do so for as low as GYD$1000. Prices range from $1000 – $3000. The facility can accommodate vehicles up to seven feet high. The length for a complete wash is estimated at 10 minutes maximum.
Persons can also get specials on bottom washes, engine cleans and wheel cleans among others.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Samuel Hinds who opened the facility with the symbolic cutting of the ribbon said such a service was evidently needed and commended Bayah for seeing the need and moving to provide it.
He is optimistic that the business will strive despite some initial startup challenges he foresees in selling the idea and generating a change in attitudes.
The Prime Minister posited that such developments are the signals which indicate that life is changing and evolving in Guyana. His car was the first to be washed at the facility.
All the water for the car wash is provided by the Guyana Water Incorporated; however the facility is equipped with a water recycler and also traps grease and sand. The Management has assured of water conservation and reduced environmental impacts.
