Introducing Niverville’s New Car Spa

Niverville is getting a new car wash—and not just any old car wash, but a state of the art car spa. The venture comes from Winnipeg-based businessman Harsimran Sandhu, who is also part of the ownership group of Niverville’s upcoming cannabis shop, Urban Flavours.

“I have owned and operated three car washes in the last five years, including a similar self-serve wand wash in Winnipeg called Mississippi Jacks Car Wash located in Southdale,” says Sandhu.

The Niverville car wash will be called the Blue Buffalo Wash Factory, and it will include 12 self-serve wand wash bays, in addition to one or two automatic touchless laser washes. There will also be a convenience store on site geared towards vehicle-cleaning accessories. A propane fill station may be part of the final design.

And that’s not all. Sandhu says customers will also be able to take advantage of an auto-detailing centre which will be designed to clean all vehicle types, including RVs and boats.

Like a few other recently announced businesses, the car wash will be located on Drovers Run—in this case, on the street’s furthest east lot. So far Drovers Run hasn’t been extended that far, which will soon change as the time of construction nears.

“We are looking at beginning construction in late summer, with the opening in late fall,” says Sandhu. “We are definitely looking to be open before the winter season hits.”

According to Sandhu, the car wash will come equipped with all the latest technology to bring customers the best possible experience.

“The car wash will have the latest technology when it comes to self-serve wand washes, including tap-and-go in-bay payment options, with the option of using cash as well,” he says.

The wand wash will include all the usual options—soap, rinse, foam brush, wax, as well as in-bay vacuums. Other options will include tire and engine cleaner, and an in-bay air system for drying locks and filing tires.

“We have added some very exciting options for car enthusiasts or for anybody looking to add that extra touch,” says Sandhu, “with in-bay low pressure pre-soak, turtle ice wax, spot-free rinse, which reduces water spots, and a triple colour spray foam system.”

He explains that the automatic laser wash will be just as exciting.

“It utilizes the latest technology, including a vehicle positioning system called Virtual Treadle, which eliminates drive-on floor-mounted mechanisms, creating a wide open and inviting bay for customers. The virtual treadle process begins as the vehicle enters the wash bay. Ultrasonic sensors accurately measure the vehicle’s width, and bridge sensors signal the driver to stop or back up, by activating easy to understand audible LED signs. The wash system is then activated with an electronic safety envelope surrounding the entire vehicle, allowing the laser wash to maintain an optimum cleaning distance.”

He and his partners believe Niverville is the perfect market for a new car spa like this one. With this being his second business investment in the community, he feel the time is right.

“Being in the car wash business, I am always on the lookout for growing communities that lack that high-volume premium car wash,” he says. “During my first few visits to Niverville, I had noticed that there was no automatic wash options and the project grew from there.”

He adds that he is interested in leasing out the detailing centre to a local businessperson who might be interested in running their own shop.

“We ask everyone to follow our Instagram page for all updates on the project. We are still working on our final design.”
