The employees at Suds Brothers don't rely on newfangled equipment to do their jobs. They don't depend on fancy gadgets, nor do they try to coax old fire trucks out of retirement just to use their high-powered hoses. Instead, Suds Brothers staffers always hand wash vehicles to remove actual grease, dirt, and smudges from customers' cars. They join forces and scrub rides during six different types of washes, ranging from a basic wash to a platinum service that includes a triple-clear coat protectant, interior and exterior dressing, and a wheel package. Customers who are short on time can skip the full packages and choose from various a la carte services, including tri-color polishes, wheel cleanings, and tire dressings.
As a member of WaterSavers, a program that recognizes and celebrates car washes that follow eco-friendly practices, Quick Quack Car Wash upholds its pledge to the environment by using only 8 gallons of water, biodegradable shampoos, and acid-free, non-corrosive cleaning products for each wash. Cars can typically traverse the brushless wash in 5–15 minutes, leaving ample time to revel in the attention of soft cloths, undercarriage flushes, and Rain-X treatments that repel moisture accumulation and championship-worthy Gatorade bombings. Quick Quack's 48-hour rain check promises cars a free wash if it rains within 48 hours of their last visit. It also opens its services to community fundraising events.
At Dirt Buster's Car Wash, the staff strives for a sense of community just as much as they do for cleanliness. Each locally owned wash participates in a variety of efforts to support the surrounding businesses and charities. They might help with fundraising, or partner with organizations such as the Placer Food Bank and Toys for Tots to aid people in need. They also offer discounts for customers affiliated with area schools?you just need to show your student card, school team fan gear, or the stolen head of a rival team's mascot.
Attendants at each location hand-wash and vacuum vehicles as the most basic service. From there, guests can request packages that include paint protectant, tire dressing, and underbody washes in addition to the standard wash. Detailing services, on the other hand, spruce up cars both inside and out with deep-cleanings and a three-step buffing process.

Keeping cars pretty is already a challenge, but sometimes it's finding the time to take them to the detailer that's the real hassle.

Using only high quality products such as clay bars and Meguiar's hand wax, they pamper cars in their own driveways, doling out hand-washes and shampooing leather interiors to keep them looking like new.
