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.

For all detail level services, we recommend planning to drop off your vehicle.
However, if you prefer to wait, we have a wonderful lounge and patio, complete with free WiFi, free coffee and a work countertop for your convenience!
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, 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.
