What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Details||Reviews_|
Choosing a place for your next car wash is typically a grueling decision that requires exactly 14 months of deliberation. When considering potential interior/exterior auto cleaning suitors, one tough question always comes to mind. A question more commonly heard than paper or plastic?, more vehemently debated than boxers or briefs?, and less edible than the chicken or the egg?, it has no definitive answer because prolonged exposure to it has left scientists with permanent loss of hearing, vision, and life. The question: man touch or machine touch? Here’s what little we know:
Man Touch Pros:
- Supple and soft, like a living chamois
- Ability to express love and affection
- Quickly adjusts to auto’s moans and purrs
Machine Touch Pros:
- Knows what other machines like
- No body hair inadvertently left behind during cleaning
- Very few lower back problems
Still no clear-cut winner to solve your car wash dilemma? What if we told you it’s okay to stop worrying? That you can go back to sleeping at night and not yelling at other people’s children for poor hygiene? Well, we’ve got some shocking news: you can. Choosing a car wash place doesn’t have to be a slightly-greater-than-year-long decision. At White Glove, you get the best of both worlds. First machine. Then man. Bang. Bang. Guaranteed to clean your auto with machinelike precision, then dry it with tender love as only ten sweaty men with towels can.
Today’s Groupon gets you FIVE car washes for $50 at White Glove Car Wash (a $90 value for the package—$21.99 value for each individual wash). And what do people always say are the three most important factors in getting your car washed? Location. Location. Location. Or something like that. White Glove occupies 1415 W. Shakespeare, right at the intersection of Clybourn and Southport. A perfect spot for giving your vehicle the long soak it desperately needs. And at just $10 per cash wash, you can keep your car clean all the time. As soon as it gets gross again from off-roading or parking under the pigeons’ favorite tree, you won’t have to fret about how you just had it washed 2 weeks ago. Just get your next wash from your package of 5 and keep you ride shining all summer long.
This wash is appropriately named “The Works,” because it includes:
- Car Wash
- Interior Vacuuming
- Interior Window Cleaning
- Console and Dash Dusting
- Triple Coat Paint Conditioner
- Clear Coat Sealer
- Under Carriage Wash
- White Wall Cleaner
- Rim Cleaner
- Tire Dressing
- Air Fragrance
- Outside Hand Towel Drying
At most places, services like tire dressing and air fragrance will cost you extra. But not with “The Works.”
When we decided we were going to do our first car wash in Chicago, we immediately thought of White Glove, because some of us in the office personally go there for “The Works.” We can personally testify that this thorough wash is worth the every day price, and at 44% off it’s a no brainer. So don’t be surprised if you bump into some Groupon staff at White Glove should you get today’s deal (you’ll know us by our Groupon helmets), and probably some Yelpers too. While White Glove’s Yelp reviews vary significantly based on which service the user purchased, the reviews for the car wash are consistently positive. Here’s what a few Yelpers said about the suds-n-shine: > * “They took my car right away. When I picked it up, the car looked as good as new. I was very pleased with the work.” - Sara G. > * “The service is quick and friendly and on a weekday I can be in and out in less than an hour.” - Camille O. > * “Went on a busy Saturday after a couple week’s worth of salt, ice, and grit stuck to my car. It was quick, moderately priced, and good quality.” - Ishaq L.
