Car Washes For Sale

We have matched buyers and sellers for years.  We have had good success at financing those sale/purchase transactions.

This is a new page for us.  It is an experiment.  We have matched buyers and sellers, but not by using this web site.  We will continue this car wash buyer/seller matching service only if it is beneficial for everyone involved.

If you want to sell your car wash at a REALISTIC price and within a reasonable amount of time (within 6 months from start) we will connect you with capable buyers who are seeking a car wash of the type that you are selling.  We will give you the potential buyer's contact information so that you can contact that person directly.  Please respect my time:  If you are just trying to see how much you can get for your car wash and have no real intention of selling within about 6 months, please do not contact me to put your car wash on this list.

If you are a potential buyer of one of these car washes, please e-mail or call us.  Please make sure that you are a serious buyer, that you have the cash down payment (usually 20% to 22%), and that you are otherwise credit-worthy.  We will have the seller contact you directly.  We are not posting these car washes for sale just for fun:  If you do buy we would like to have the opportunity to provide the financing for you.

Car Wash Loans and Alan Bussey make no claims or representations of any kind whatsoever about any car wash listed here.  You should not rely upon any of the information below to make your purchase decision.  You are entirely responsible for your own due diligence.
