At Top Notch Express Car Wash, customers can choose their preferred degree of cleaning control. Each of the four locations abides by a flex system, enabling owners to drive by for a full- or express-service scrubbing. Express washes cleanse and jet-dry exteriors before patrons vacuum the interiors themselves, whereas full-service washes employ the staff to vacuum, clean windows, and oversee the application of add-ons such as wax and tire shine. Frequent clients can even sign up for a monthly unlimited wash plan, a prudent asset for autos that are regularly sullied by off-road excursions or ice-cream-truck demolition derbies.
