Boost your screenwash sales

Tracy West ·

Air-Serv says that an increasing number of its customers who had air units that dispensed free water, have either started charging for the water or have upgraded their old unit to the new Air-Serv Tallboy DA11 Air & Screen Wash machine. The company says that as most modern cars use coolant in their radiators, the need for water is reducing. By offering screenwash as an alternative, site operators can benefit from increased revenues.

Drivers primarily use an air machine through necessity as a distress purchase, while screenwash is something that is required continually throughout the year.

Air-Serv says its experience to date is that screenwash sales from its machines do not impact on a site’s pre-packaged screenwash sales, so this product is an incremental sales opportunity. In addition, screenwash purchased from the Air-Serv air machine is an environmentally friendly way of acquiring it for customers who want to reduce their plastic waste.

Staff on the Air-Serv stand (U140) will also be talking to visitors about the company’s new partnership with Turtle Wax, where its Vac & Fresh unit now uses exclusive Turtle Wax fragrance.
