Back in June 2019, Garage Carlos Verdonck from Aalter contacted us about installing a self-service carwash as an addition to their car repair and car sale services. The owner, Carlos Verdonck, had been looking to expand his services and capitalize on the lack of car washes in the local area. To do this, he contacted us at CTW. A few weeks later, the end result of a fruitful partnership was there to be seen: a modern, well-located and thriving self-service car wash.

Garage expansion with a self-service car wash in Aalter, Belgium
A great location and opportunity
One of the first things that stood out to us was the potential of the location. Garage Carlos Verdonck is located in the local industrial area Lakeland, which is home to many businesses looking for a place to clean their vehicle fleet. The garage is also located next to a busy road where many potential customers would pass the self-service car wash daily. Finally, the only other car wash in the area had recently closed down, which meant that there were no other car washes or competitors in the area.
What we did
As soon as Garage Carlos Verdonck contacted us, we got to work and met up to discuss all possibilities and take a look at their location. After our visit, we got started on the design of the installation, for which we also brought in local architect business Sonar Architects.
When we finalised the design, we helped the client with the necessary plans as well as get the required building and environmental permits. We communicated with the local Aalter town council, got their approval and included their conditions to adjust our plans and get everything ready to start construction.
We built the installation in compliance with all necessary rules and regulations, dug a bioswale for surface runoff and made sure that the environment and surrounding space were not harmed or polluted.
