    I would like to say “all” but often time does not allow it. We do a hand wash in-house weather/time permitting. If not then we give a coupon for a Superwash site down the road. [ 7$ wash we get for 1/2 price ] We also have pass cards to the same wash and we will do a drive through on test drives.

    We wash about 45 customer cars a week and take out the mats to knock off most of the dirt.

    We have a car wash person at the shop 4 days a week.

    He cleans the shop cuts the lawn and does light maintenance on equipment when not washing cars.

    It is expedited because the dealer is our main competition they wash and Vac every car.People often say that’s why they go to the dealer for oil changes.

    I love it when it rains we don’t have to wash as many cars.

    Struck a deal with a detail shop next door that is hungry. $8.00 each for a hand wash and dry within 30 min.. No more broken antenna’s, mirrors, scratches, ect…..

    Used the automatic wash down the street for $6 for years, we get a much better responce this way.
