Why YOU Need More Car Washes This Winter

No matter the climate, winter is the right season for regular car washes at your local Tommy’s Express!

Here’s why:

For Those With Snow

For those in the north, it can be tempting to hold off on car washes when storms are rolling in. After all, you’ll never keep your car clean anyway, so what’s the difference if it stays grimy for a few days, a few weeks, or a few months?

It turns out, that difference can be pretty critical.

Winter conditions can do a number on a car in a relatively short amount of time. The snowier it gets the more road salt and de-icing compounds go down on the roads, both of which dramatically accelerate vehicle rusting the longer they sit on your car—especially on the undercarriage where the damage is invisible.

Weekly or twice weekly car washes with an underbody flush service help loosen up that salt layer on your vehicle’s exterior and lower body, slowing the rate of damage, while our Body Wax and Tommy Guard products provide an extra layer of protection over the visible portions of the vehicle.

Make car washing a part of your weekly routine and you may be surprised just how much better your car looks a few years down the road!

For Everybody Else

If you live in the south or out West you may still have to worry about road salt from the occasional winter storm, or even from sea salt blowing in on the air from the Atlantic, Pacific, or Gulf of Mexico, depending on where you’re located.

But, wherever you are, regular car washes at your nearest Tommy’s Express will keep your vehicle looking good AND give you the best possible road visibility after stormy or windy winter days.

  1. I have 2 cars and only want to wash each maybe s couple of times per month or less. Do you have a monthly club fee that I can use for either car for just a few washes per month?

    1. Hi Rich,
      Tommy Club memberships follow individual vehicles, so you may be best off getting a membership for your most used car and buying an occasional single wash for the second car, or buying single washes for both vehicles at the window as needed.

  2. Do you own the Tommy’s Express Car Wash at 2460 S Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90034? If yes, can you please tell me why it does not show as a location in your mobile app? I am considering a membership. Should I just choose a different location as my primary and will that work at this location? Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Mick,
      Unfortunately that car wash is not a part of our franchise and uses a different building design and equipment layout (although some of their equipment does come from the same supplier and car wash designer that we use). Memberships purchased on our app will not work at our car wash locations.

      I believe they opened around 2015 or 16, right around the time our franchise was getting drawn up. That we share a name is really unfortunate, and you aren’t the only one to be confused. I don’t know if they offer a club program, info isn’t readily available. Best bet might be to call and ask.

  3. Knowing why and when your car is in need of a cleaning is as important as personal hygiene, since your allowing your car the best conditions for its best performance possible!
