Our team recently completed the first stand-alone Gate Express Carwash facility in Jacksonville, FL. Located just off Interstate 95 and Collins Road, this 4,142 square foot building is the new prototype for over 20 fully automated carwash facilities that will be built throughout the Jacksonville area.

Built on 1.6 acres, this state-of-the-art carwash has a 125-foot tunnel that can handle up to 5 vehicles simultaneously in a single file line. The building was constructed of concrete block with precast hollow core walls, exterior aluminum and wood composite panels, aluminum storefront, standing seam metal roof, metal stud framing, acoustical ceiling tile, and all associated electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and carwash equipment.

Gate Petroleum formed Gate Express with the intent of “providing an affordable, top-quality wash in less than four minutes”. The express operation is a wash only and does not include interior or exterior detailing, however there are lots of wash options to choose from including a presoak, foam cleaner, jet dry, rim and tire shine, and hot wax. Each facility will have vacuums available for customers free of charge.

Another feature for Gate Express Carwash is the Individual and Daily Wash Fast Pass options. These packages offer many types of services that range in pricing from $5 a day to $30 per month.
