We are often asked about options for car washes around the Lorton and Northern Virginia area. For customers interested in long term storage we recommend washing and getting a nice coat of wax on the vehicle before outdoor storage. For customers regularly using their vehicles, regular washing and cleaning can maintain the vehicle’s value. Winter is finally coming to an end and spring is right a right the corner, time to give your vehicle a good old carwash and an interior cleaning!
There are so many carwashes in the area, allowing various options there are drive-thru washes, full service washes, or how about a good old hand wash?! Deciding where to get your car washed can be hard, you want to spend your hard earned dollars on something that’s worth the money and will have your vehicle looking new! Some things that you might keep in mind when looking for a car wash: what types of services do they offer? Do they give discounts/promotions? Are they located close to me? How would their current customers rate their services? Will your money be well spent? Fortunately with some research it’s easy to find which car wash would be best for you.
One of the car washes I’ve researched is Embassy Car Wash with 5 locations throughout the Northern Virginia area. The car wash offers a basic car wash to a platinum car wash (their best wash) for a range of different range of prices to fit your budget. You can also add on extras such as tire shine, Rain-X, or a car scent for an additional cost. Embassy car wash also offers “pre-paid” washes allowing you to pay a certain flat rate for a fixed number of washes. They have coupons you can print off their webpage or you can sign up for their monthly deals program where you receive special offers, coupons, and deals directly to your email!
Another major wash in the DMV area is Mr. Wash Car Wash with 4 locations in Virginia and 2 locations in Maryland. This particular car wash offers their basic/regular wash to their “lava wax” car wash ranging from all different prices with certain washes only available at specific locations, which can have its advantages and disadvantages. Mr. Wash also offers a monthly pass program, where you’re billed on the same day every month and you are able to wash your car as many times as you want in that month, you could go once every single day if you truly wanted to. If you choose a regular wash you are able to have add-on’s to your wash for an additional cost (like the car wash previously mentioned).
Champion car wash of Tyson’s Corner / Vienna is hand washing all of their vehicles the old fashioned way. All of their washes consist of an outside hand wash followed by additional service add-on if desired. Although the wash does not offer a monthly pass program it does offer the certain flat rate special for a fixed number of washes. Champion car wash also offers certain promotions on their webpage for their customers to use coupons.
