  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great car wash business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

The Car Spa

This name conveys the idea of a pampering session for your car.

Green Car Care Boutique

This name conveys a car wash that is convenient and eco-friendly.

Sparkle, Sparkle

This name conveys how fantastic your car will look after it has been cleaned.

The Shine Experts

This name conveys the imagery of a shiny, clean exterior.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great car wash business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful car wash businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Zip Car Wash Logo

Zips Car Wash is a name that allows customers to know that the car wash is one that works quickly. That means they can easily hit the car wash on their way to or from work to get their car looking nice without having to take too much time out of their day to do it.

Quick Quack Car Wash Logo

Quick Quack Car Wash is a name with a lot of great repetitive sounds. In addition, it’s a name that lends itself well to having a mascot, which can make the business seem even more welcoming.

Raceway Express Car Wash Logo

Raceway Express Car Wash is a name that can make customers feel like a professional racer. It’s a name that comes with a lot of flash and flair, which can really appeal to some customers.

5 Tips for naming your car wash business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused Car Wash terms like car, clean or wash. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real car wash business named “Raceway Express Car Wash”.

This is a name that can paint a picture many customers will enjoy. Who doesn’t want to imagine themselves as a famous race car driver pulling in for a quick car wash? Whenever you can use your name to make the customer feel special, it’s a good idea.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Sparkle Sparkle, The Car Spa
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (The Vehicle Bath – is a name that literally refers to a car wash, just in a unique way)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable car wash business names could be:

  • Budubu Car Wash
  • Likola Car Wash
  • Rutobu Car Wash

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Cascade Car Wash and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Cascadde Car Wash, CascadeWash or Casscade Car Wash.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
