Frequently asked questions

Q. What is the height limit for vehicles?

A. The height limit for vehicles is 84 inches.

Q. Can you wash dually pick-up trucks?

A. Yes! We can wash a vehicle that is up to 98 inches wide!

Q. Are the vacuums and mat washers free?

A. Yes, they are! Our vacuums and mat washers are available for everyone and anybody. If you have trouble locating the mat washers, ask one of our team members for assistance.

Q. Why do I need to provide credit card information to join the Tommy Club?

A. Just like any other subscription (i.e. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Spotify, etc.), a form of payment is needed to join. We take our guests' private information very seriously and would do nothing to compromise this trust. You can count on us! All transactions are on a monthly schedule.

Q. Can a convertible or soft-topped jeep go through your car wash?

A. Yes! We welcome vehicles of all shapes, sizes, and...roofs! Just please make sure that the top is in place and waterproof.

Q. Why does a team member check my truck bed?

A. We know this might seem odd, but it's actually for a good reason. Days are busy, and sometimes it's easy to forget what was placed in your truck bed (i.e., tools, garbage, firewood, etc.). We check your truck to make sure there is nothing that could potentially damage our car wash and, most importantly, other vehicles. It is our responsibility to make sure each car arrives at the end of our tunnel clean, shiny, and dry.

Q. Why do you place a bag on my rear windshield wiper?

A. Some vehicle makes and models are "extra attracted" to our car wash and like to hold on and not let go (if you know what we mean). That's flattering, but we thought it best to place a protective sleeve free of charge, so that no rear windshield wiper is left behind.

Q. Are there cars you don't recommend going through the wash?

A. While we would love to say that we can wash ANY vehicle, the reality is that it might not be best for either party. There are certain vehicles that we cannot accept due to after-market parts, bike racks, hitches, rust, age, and so on. If you are ever questioning your vehicle, speak to a team member onsite, before entering the wash. They are always more than happy to help.

Q. How does the conveyor system work?

A. Our conveyor is industry leading and provides a stress-free car washing experience. Say "goodbye" to having to squeeze your tires between two rails. To load your car, slow your vehicle down as you enter the wash and ease it into Neutral once prompted by the screen.

Q. Why don't you have a team member pre-scrub the vehicles?

A. We do a safer version of auto-prepping via our branded detergent! The first arch your car goes under is in charge of automatically dissolving the bug guts right off your vehicle. Scrubbing at your car with a brush would only interrupt this effective process and damage your vehicle.

Q. What's the fingernail rule?

A. If a fingernail is required to scrape off the material, our brushes won't do the same on the first try. Luckily, with unlimited washes via our Tommy Club, the bug guts won't have a chance to get baked on! The more often you visit, the better off your car will be.

Q. Do you clean the interior of my car?

A. Since we are an express, we specialize in exterior washing. However, we do provide free vacuums, free mat washers, and an interior detailing kit at a low cost.

Q. If I have a question about the car wash, who should I reach out to?

A. We always recommend speaking to our team members on site. They are at your service! However, if you ever need to get ahold of us off site, give us a call via our site number or message our location on Facebook!

Q. Is there insurance if my vehicle gets damaged?

A. We want to be transparent. While we are confident in our abilities to give your car a great experience, sometimes accidents happen, and when they do, our team is readily equipped to respond. That said, we ask that you also do your part and make sure that you follow the guidelines we have in place to ensure a clean, shiny, and dry wash every time. There is signage at our site before you enter the wash that explains in detail our requirements.

Q. Can you wash low riding vehicles?

A. Oh, yes, we can! We love our extra-low-to-the-ground sports cars. Our conveyor is adaptable to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. If you have any questions, please talk to one of our team members before you enter the wash.
