After driving past a stand of palm trees and VIP Car Wash's sunny yellow façade, visitors entrust themselves to the care of a friendly greeter and their rides to the technicians, who can wash and detail both two- and four-wheeled vehicles. The cleaners ensure the long-lasting beauty of interiors and exteriors by using top-shelf products from brands such as Armor-All, Rain-X, Meguiar's, and Simoniz, and by refusing to use cheap plastic brushes that may damage a delicate paint job or offend a car’s aesthetic sensibilities. The cleaners maintain a strong connection to the community and the world around them by hosting fundraising car washes for local schools and athletic teams, and donating to charities such as St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the American Heart Association, and the American Red Cross.
Royal Car Wash's auto technicians restore vehicles' like-new sparkle with thorough washes and interior and exterior detailing packages. The team tends to cars' every crevice, washing underbodies, polishing and waxing exteriors, and treating windows with Rain?X.
A 125-foot automatic wash tunnel is the bread and butter at each of Motor City Car Wash’s three locations. The system, which uses light-touch soft cloths and 60% recycled and filtered water, effectively cleans cars from roof to underbelly without damaging the paint. Drivers can choose one of four car-wash packages, such as the Basic—a wash, power dry, and hand finish—or the Works, complete with an exterior dressing and a Rain-X windshield treatment. After rolling through the tunnel, cars can pull up to a uniformed technician to be lavished with praise for their new and shiny look, or to be detailed with Meguiar's products. Motor City backs all of its services with a 48-hour re-wash policy.
Main Street Car Wash has been owned and operated by the same family for more than a quarter century, adding pizzazz to rides with sudsing and detailing services. With names honoring the owner's children, Amy and Max, the service menu includes three to four tiers of washing and detailing treatments, whether for a vehicle looking to dust off for the spring or inconspicuously crash a limo's birthday party. Drive-thru or hand-washing treatments can be augmented with add-ons such as leather cleaning and conditioning, triple-foam wax treatments, Rain-X application, and vacuuming. Hand-applied wax treatments envelop automobiles in paint protection for three to six months, and each receipt comes loaded with $25 in coupons for future services, allowing guests to extend their car's sparkling façade well into the future.
The meticulous technicians of Top Hat Car Wash have watched the brake lights of nearly three million freshly cleaned cars pull away from their cleansing stations since sudsing up their first ride in 1968. Their wash tunnel churns out four types of washes, ranging from basic exterior cleanses to a 13-step SuperSaver Plus wash that scrubs undercarriages and vacuums out trunks. The detailing menu gives rides an extra human touch, whether through the Meguiar's hand wax or floor-mat cleaning of the express packages or the full-fledged white-glove services, during which technicians refine cars with leather conditioner, Teflon polish wax, and paint-refining clay bars. The shop?s complimentary Wi-Fi keeps waiting customers busy, and a three-day rain-check policy lets drivers bring their car back in case it rains or the hood-mounted water-balloon cannon backfires.
