Car Wash recommendations


#1

Hi folks, fairly trivial one, but was wondering if anyone has a favourite car wash place?


Recommended shops and services in SE23
#2

The car wash behind FH station is great. Been going there for years. £6 for the exterior is pretty good value. Nice guys as well.


#3

My preferred place is on Green Lane in Penge. Been using it since about 98

Assuming @Londondrz is refering to the one on Church Vale, then I second his recomendation. If not, then I vote for ‘the one on Church Vale’!! Always happy to squirt the pressure washer at the windows in a ‘mock soaking you’ kinda way, much to the amusement of my 4 yr old, and do a decent job of cleaning the car inside and out. They even offer you an incredibly poewerful air freshener to hang from the rear view mirror (either I have a very sensitive nose for that kind of smell, or they’re trying to subtly tell me something about the inside of my car…) - and all this for a mere tenner!

I stick the air freshener inside my bin at home. Works a treat.

Thanks! I’ll check out Church Vale on the weekend.

On Newlands Park behind All Parts Zone is the best I find. Church Vale one is fine if your in a rush tho.

Under the arches on Evelina Rd, Nunhead they do a great job. On my first visit a while back it was £15 for the full works inside & out and I felt it was too little so gave them £20. Last month it was £10 so they got £15. I guess times are hard and I am not representative of their average customer. Both times the very grubby car came out ‘as new’.

Duh! Somehow I missed it.


#12

I’m planning on flogging my car, but need it to look clean for the photos (inside and out). I have two small children and a penchant for snacking, so the interior probably needs more work than the exterior. Does anyone have any recommendations for detailing (preferably the kind that come to you)?


#13

They guys behind FH station on Church Vale are very good. Still take my car there when in London.


#14

I normally use those guys, but it’s a good idea to try to pick a quiet time. I went for the ‘special service’ when I was selling my car, and as they were a bit flat out, it ended up nowhere near as good as the normal service!

First thing Sat or Sunday is best or 10am during the week.
