Hyundai Oilbank announced on the 27th that it will open a self-washing area that can be used at night by utilizing the idle space of the automatic car washing machine at the gas station.
Hyundai Oilbank has joined hands with “Team Wiper,” a car wash reservation platform company, to open a garage-type premium self-washing facility at Bukak Self Gas Station in Seongbuk-gu, Seoul. Hyundai Oilbank plans to increase its garage-type self-washing business model, focusing on directly managed gas stations nationwide.
Hyundai Oilbank noted that demand for garage-type self-washing, which can be used regardless of the season and weather, and does not have to be aware of the surrounding eyes, is increasing. The project was introduced based on the fact that the automatic car washing machine, which occupies a large space in the gas station, is operated only during the day, and that an automatic door can be installed at the exit of the tunnel-type automatic car washing machine.
Hyundai Oilbank’s garage-type indoor self-washing service can be used without waiting time through a pre-booking and payment system during the night after the automatic washing operation is completed. The indoor car wash is equipped with facilities for self-washing, such as high-pressure washing machines, foam guns, air guns, lighting, and air conditioners, so it can be used without restriction within the reserved time.
Hyundai Oilbank is considering applying various new business models to existing gas station spaces based on the nation’s largest direct gas station network, said Park Ki-chul, head of Hyundai Oilbank’s sales division.
