Got a question? Check out our list below to see if we can help.
DO YOU WASH TRUCKS?
Yes. However, the height limit at tunnel washes is 84".
Our self-serve bays have taller heights.
IS THE WASH SAFE FOR CONVERTIBLES?
Yes, please make sure the roof is properly latched.
DO YOU TAKE CREDIT CARDS?
Yes, all major credit cards are accepted at tunnel locations.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WASH MY CAR?
We advise our customers to wash their vehicles any time they are
dirty. Dirt works into the paint and deteriorates the surface of the
paint due to many types of pollutants in road dirt. It is best to remove
insect residue, bird droppings, and other residue as soon as possible
to prevent damage to your vehicle's paint.
ARE TUNNEL CAR WASHES SAFE
FOR SKI OR ROOF RACKS?
In most cases, roof racks are safe to take through a tunnel
car wash. Our staff will inspect your roof rack to make sure
it is securely attached to your vehicle and has no protruding
attachments. If your roof rack needs to be removed for
safety, our staff will assist you to remove and reinstall
the rack after your car has been washed.
WHAT'S SO BAD ABOUT DRIVEWAY/ALLEY
Since storm drains are not a part of the wastewater system, materials
mptied into them do not go to wastewater treatment facilities. Driveway
car washing not only introduces chemicals from soaps and detergents
into the water system, it also loosens toxic particles that have accumulated
on your car, such as lead, phosphates, motor oil, asphalt, and antifreeze
and releases them directly into our streams and lakes.
IS IT SAFER TO WASH YOUR CAR
BY HAND AT HOME?
Rags and sponges used in driveway washing inevitably become
impregnated with tiny particles of grit and can scratch your
vehicle's surface. Furthermore, garden hoses typically have
inadequate water pressure to remove all the soap film, letting
it 'bake' into the finish and work its way into the paint for days
afterward. In fact, professional studies have shown that the good
old driveway car wash is one of the worst things that can happen
to a car's factory paint job.
