Self-Service Car Wash vs. Automatic Car Wash – Which is Right for You?

Customers are often curious about whether they should choose the self-service car wash or the automatic car wash. Is one method better than the other? We want you to know that they’re both great choices. Here are some tips for deciding which one is right for you and your vehicle:

Do you want to do the work? Are you the type of car owner that likes to wash your vehicle yourself? If you love to personally scrub every inch of your car yourself, the self-service car wash is definitely for you. If you’re taking your garage queen out for a wash, our bays have everything you need to take her back home sparkling. From state-of-the-art bay meters, to our booms, wands, and soap, our high quality equipment will get your vehicle cleaned to your satisfaction.

Are you interested in a quick fix? If you’re in a hurry, and are happy to roll up your windows and let our attendants and machinery do the work, you’ll be happy to glide through our automatic car wash. From the foaming presoak, to the undercarriage wash to a dynamic clear coat rinse, our different wash options will take care of your vehicle top to bottom.

Finish The Job With Soft Water. Whichever service you use, our car washes use only soft water that is treated with reverse osmosis. That soft water gives you the best wash and rinse possible. Soft water gives you the closest rinse you’ll get to a spot free finish when you can’t towel dry.

We appreciate both our self-service and automatic car wash customers. Although you might not agree on your car wash methods, everyone wants a clean vehicle. Make sure you make a clean getaway in your car, minivan, SUV, or truck with either the self-serve or automatic options!

Have Your Car Detailed at Clean Getaway in Kalamazoo Before You Sell It

There is no doubt that you’re more likely to get more money for your car if it appears to be in good condition. First impressions are important, and a cleaned and detailed car definitely leaves the impression that the car has been well cared for. A good looking car, truck, SUV, van, or motorcycle will definitely pull in more prospective buyers and may mean hundreds or even thousands more dollars in your pocket.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re just trading your vehicle in to a dealership or selling it privately, you should have your car detailed at Clean Getaway in Kalamazoo either way. Whether it be a professional at a dealership or an individual buyer, if the exterior and interior of the car does not appear to be properly maintained, the idea is planted in their head that the engine and mechanical elements of the vehicle were probably not taken care of either – this is also an excellent reason to have the engine cleaned. When the buyer pops the hood, they will be confident the car is in great condition.

At Clean Getaway Auto Detail Center in Kalamazoo, we know how much of an investment a vehicle is for many people. Beyond getting more value out of your vehicle if you’re looking to sell or trade, having regular auto detailing done will ensure that your car, truck, SUV, or van is in good shape at all times.
