What type of car wash is best for me?

April 27, 2020

Just like many things in life, there are a LOT of ways to wash a car. But which is the right one for you? There are a variety of options for a car wash near me. Read on to find just the right choice for you and your ride. 

How will you wash your car? 

Touchless car wash

Just like it sounds, the touchless method means the only thing that will touch your car is soap and water. High pressurized water! The wash starts with a rinse, then a layer of soap, and then every bit of grit and grime is blasted off your car with streams of water. This option is especially favored by luxury car owners.

Hand car wash

When you opt for a hand car wash, you’re getting the white glove treatment. Literally. At Tommy Terrific’s our hand washes are done with lamb’s wool mittens for maximum clean and a delicate touch. When looking for a car wash near me, find one that uses pH-balanced foaming soaps to protect your ride’s paint job. It’s also better for the environment! 

Automatic car wash

Automatic car washes have become the mainstream go-to option in recent years. You know the type. Drive-up onto the conveyor belt, sit back, and relax! They use a variety of soaps, cleansers, and finishes, depending on how much spare change and time you have. If you’re in a hurry, an automatic car wash is your best bet. 

Mobile car wash

If you have NO time to wash your car (let’s face it, we’ve all had those days) a mobile car wash is a great option. Using a website or an app, you schedule a cleaning at your convenience. Then the cleaning crew comes right to you! This option is great for the seriously time-strapped, as it can be done while you’re at work!

Self-serve car wash 

With a self-serve wash, you have the benefit of knowing exactly how clean your car is. You’ll also spend a little less and avoid any scratches or dings that may come from a less than careful car wash near me. The downside? You’re limited in your selection soaps, and there aren’t always paint-saving finishes. Pro tip: bring your own drying rags if you don’t want to drip dry!
