    1 Find a location that needs a car wash. A high-profile location, such as a busy street with good visibility, is a necessity for a business such as this to succeed. 2 Contact the city or county department that handles business licenses and request an application. 3 Inquire as to what other requirements there are for opening a business. You may be required to provide insurance or follow certain restrictions for the area. 4 Contact the Franchise Tax Board to get a wholesale permit, if required. This will allow you to purchase goods without paying taxes if they are to be used in your business. 5 Research car washes. Decide whether you want a fully automated car wash or a partially automated one that requires workers to complete part of the washing and drying process. 6 Decide if you want to purchase a franchise or open an independent business. 7 Make a business plan. You'll need to have all of the aspects of opening and running the business worked out for the short and long term. 8 Get financing. Unless you have a lot of money lying around, you will need to borrow money to build the business. 9 Advertise your new business. Use creative marketing to draw customers, such as a coupon book or a frequent-washer program.
