On the 4th of September, the first Švaros Broliai tunnel car wash was officially opened in Klaipėda. It is the most powerful tunnel car wash in Europe, featuring state-of-the-art technology: a car can be washed in just 96 seconds, while more than 200 vehicles can travel through the car wash within an hour. The first vehicle, marking the opening of the car wash, was a car driven by Vytautas Grubliauskas, the Mayor of Klaipėda City.
New technological solutions in the market
This tunnel car wash has introduced some new technological solutions that have not been applied in Lithuania prior to now – there is a smart system that can adapt to the dimensions of each car. Vehicles can enter the car wash via two separate lanes: one for drivers wishing to pat at the cash register; and the other for subscribers. The Švaros broliai subscription system is functional throughout Lithuania, so participating drivers from any city can use the Klaipėda car wash.
The most powerful car wash also has an expanded self-service zone for cleaning car interiors. It employs over 30 nozzles, allowing 16 cars to be vacuumed at one time, and there are also free car mat cleaning machines available to use. Soft microfibre and textile cloths are used for washing the cars, and the VIP programme’s drying process includes a novelty, as cloths are also used for this procedure.
“As part of our development and in planning new projects, we always strive to set even higher standards for car maintenance. We have once again introduced a fully modern tunnel car wash to the market. The exceptional competitiveness of this car wash is determined both by an extremely powerful conveyor and the overall technology, which enables us to deliver a high quality result in a very short period of time,” said Evaldas Kinderis, CEO of Švaros broliai.
The location is also convenient for holidaymakers
The car wash is located on one of the main streets of the port city – at Minijos St. 90. It is right next to the New Smiltynė ferry, which is visited by about 700 thousand vehicles every year. Therefore, the location of the car wash is convenient not only for the residents of Klaipėda, but also for the residents of Neringa and the guests of the resort.
“Opening a car wash in the port city is an important stage in our development, since we are now operating in three major Lithuanian cities. At the same time, this is an important step in ensuring the highest quality services are provided to the people of Lithuania, because the tunnel car wash is distinguished by its unsurpassed power. The excellent location also ensures that the tunnel car wash is convenient for everyone to use, not only the residents of Klaipėda and its surroundings who care about the daily cleanliness of their car, but also those who are setting out to visit the most beautiful places in Lithuania,” said Kinderis.
The use of car washes is growing
According to Kinderis, the latest results confirm the need for this network expansion as the use of tunnel car washes in Lithuania is growing rapidly. In the first six months of the year, 73 percent more cars were serviced at these stations than in the same period last year. In total, more than 1 million cars have already been washed in the company’s network of car washes this year.
