WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
For customers who reserve an appointment for service, we enforce a "no show" or "late cancel" policy in which the customer will be charged a fee equal to the amount of service booked.
In the event of inclement weather, we will contact you to reschedule your appointment and you will NOT be charged a fee.
We ask that you please reschedule or cancel your appointment at least 6 hours before the beginning of your appointment or you may be charged a "no show" or "late cancellation" fee.

WHAT SIZE IS MY VEHICLE?
Please refer to this guide to understanding how we define the size of your vehicle.
WHY ARE YOU SOMETIMES CLOSED ON "NICE" DAYS?
There is no single answer, but here are the most common reasons:
The temperature and/or wind chill are not forecasted to be high enough to keep water from freezing on the cars and on the ground. As a hand car wash that is very exposed to the elements, we have take the safety of our staff and your vehicle seriously. We don't want to be closed...but, some days, we have to be.
Unlike some other car washes (10-15 minutes), it takes us about an hour to set-up and clean-up. With that in mind, sometimes we have to make educated guesses on the weather and rain. We try to be smart and safe, but sometimes the weather just doesn't behave the way we anticipate.
Yes, stuff breaks and we have to fix it. Usually, we can get it done before we open or after we close. Occasionally, however, we have to close things down to gain safe access to certain parts of our equipment to service them.
How Do I Stay Up To Date?
If you have a question if we will be open, here are (in order) the best ways to access that info:
Check out the website and the pop-up header. If we will be closed or delayed open, we usually post it there.
Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and /or Twitter. We try to post when we will be closed for an entire day.
Message us on this website (bottom right corner).
Call us - this is the least useful way to find out if we are closed. If we are not here, we can't answer the phone!
I HAVE AN ISSUE WITH SERVICE. WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO HANDLE IT?
Our goal is your complete satisfaction. We strongly encourage all customers to do a quick walk-around of their vehicle after receiving service. If there are any concerns, please alert our staff and we will address them immediately. This is the easiest and most efficient way to handle any issues.

I HAVE A DAMAGE CLAIM. HOW DO I GET THIS TAKEN CARE OF?
If you believe that Aqua Cville staff or equipment is to blame for damage to your vehicle, we require the following steps be taken in order to properly document, investigate, and (if at fault) compensate you for the damage.
Customer must email us within 24 hours of service with damage claim: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include: make, model, color of vehicle, date and time of service, as well as damage claim.
Aqua staff will schedule time for customer to return with vehicle for on-site inspection.
Aqua staff will investigate claim via staff interviews, photo and video evidence.
