Car washes are the unfortunate victims of a lot of vandalism, theft, and other crimes. Easy vehicle accessibility makes these locations a prime target for criminal activity. Fortunately, modern technology in the form of video surveillance provides business owners with a new layer of security. With a video surveillance system, your car wash can be kept safe and profitable for years to come.
Many modern car washes offer user-friendly equipment that enables customers to wash their cars without an employee present. And while this business model can be successful, unattended bays combined with low nighttime visibility often attracts thieves and other criminals. Criminals tend to follow the path of least resistance, so a video surveillance system not only acts to catch wrongdoers but deters them from targeting your business in the first place. Surveillance systems don’t just catch external shrink either. They also keep a watchful eye on employees and janitorial services that may be responsible for criminal activity.
A video surveillance system is your first line of defense against bogus claims against your business. Too often people looking for a quick payout fabricate stories about their car wash experience, but with a video surveillance system the truth is readily dispensable. Strategically placed cameras can detect previous damage and disprove customer claims about the condition of their vehicle. In the court of law you want your case to be airtight, so having this layer of security can save you big time.
A video surveillance system indicates to your customers that you care about their experience. Video surveillance systems provide customers with peace of mind by knowing that all the actions within the car wash are being monitored. If they can see their car while they wait in the lobby, they will not have to worry about damages or items being stolen. A car wash that doesn’t have to rely on steel cages or thick concrete walls to protect its customers is also more likely to see business.
