Local entrepreneur joins successful waterless car wash
With water restrictions being a serious issue, a local resident has seized an outstanding business opportunity with a waterless car washing franchise.

Local resident Ian Nugent owns and manages the East Brisbane franchise of Ecowash Mobile - a waterless mobile car washing and detailing service which uses a 2-in-1 biodegradable wash and polish that lasts for four to six weeks.

Ian joined Ecowash Mobile on 15 January this year, looking for a lifestyle change and more freedom.

"I thought it would be great to promote a waterless concept that is good for the environment. Also, I saw that I could trust the financial potential of the Ecowash Mobile franchise system," he said.

Ian said the local response has been very positive so far and he has helped many car owners save water.

"With level 4 water restrictions, residents can only wash their cars using buckets of water and a lot of people donít have time to do this on weekends. The Ecowash Mobile service is convenient - I can visit people at their workplace and wash their cars whilst theyíre working," he said.

"Some people are a bit sceptical because our waterless concept is different and they canít believe we can wash cars without water, but once they try it and see the result, they are very happy with it," Ian said.

Ecowash Mobile East Brisbane services Kangaroo point, East Brisbane, Woolloongabba and Coorparoo.

The 2-in-1 wash and polish compound is sprayed onto the car exterior, encapsulates surface dirt that is then removed with a soft cloth and provides a protective coating. The whole process is guaranteed not to scratch.

The complete range of products enables a full detail inside and out including leather treatment, bumper renovation and scratch removal. To ensure long lasting protection of your car, Ecowash Mobile has also just introduced new protection options for paint, fabric and carpet or leather.

A variety of services are on offer, from a basic waterless wash and polish right through to a full detail called an Extreme Ecowash, to suit individual car owners, through to car dealers, smash repairers and corporate fleets.
