Regarding our 2023 Price Increases

Ever since we opened in April 2018, my family and I have strived to provide Charlottesville and the surrounding area with incredibly high quality car wash and detailing services, coupled with best-in-class customer service and overall customer experience.

To achieve that goal, we have dedicated ourselves to keeping costs as affordable as possible without sacrificing our service or your experience.

In previous years, we have made the choice to raise prices in order to achieve that goal, as we realized that the caliber of our staff and materials needed improvement. In order to accomplish that, we recognized the need to increase our employee wages and improve our product quality and service offerings.

This year, we are forced to increase prices not to solve those same challenges, but to combat new ones. The increase in cost of goods, shipping fees and state-mandated increases to minimum wage require us to again re-evaluate how we accomplish our goals in service to you.

To be clear, Aqua Car Wash & Detail has always been ahead of the federal and state-mandated minimum wage thresholds and will continue to do so. But, we must also balance the wage increase requirement and the now-impossible-to-ignore inflation with the ever-present need to run a profitable and long-lasting business, so that we can serve you for many years to come.

Because of that, you will see some price increases in specific services and categories, such as:

  • Plus Wash

  • Detail services

  • A La Carté services

  • Wash Club memberships

We are able to keep prices stable for the following services & categories:

  • Supreme Wash

  • Wax services

Thank you for your understanding and for your support! We look forward to serving you in a wonderful 2023.
