In most cases, lower-profile roof racks are safe to take through a Tunnel Car Wash. Our staff will inspect your roof rack to make sure it is securely attached to your vehicle and has no protruding attachments. Rear racks, like bike racks, need to be removed as the position and style of these racks have a greater likelihood of getting caught in the cloth, potentially causing damage to your vehicle, other vehicles, or the car wash equipment. Please note that we cannot wash vehicles with ladder racks such as trucks or vans.
Yes, please make sure the roof is properly latched.
Not at this time.
We advise our customers to wash their vehicles any time they are dirty. Dirt works into the paint and deteriorates the surface of the paint due to many types of pollutants in road dirt. It is best to remove insect residue, bird droppings, and other residue as soon as possible to prevent damage to your vehicle's paint.
Not neccessarily. Rags and sponges used in driveway washing inevitably become impregnated with tiny particles of grit and can scratch your vehicle's surface. Furthermore, garden hoses typically have inadequate water pressure to remove all the soap film, letting it 'bake' into the finish and work its way into the paint for days afterward. In fact, professional studies have shown that the good ol' driveway car wash is one of the worst things that can happen to a car's factory paint job.
