How is a Spiffy Mobile Car Wash Different than an Automatic Car Wash?

One of the questions we get from first-time customers is “What makes a Spiffy Car Wash worth $50?”. You might be surprised, but it's an exciting question for us. The benefits of car detailing aren't well known by everybody and we love helping car owners make their vehicles look new again.
Sure, while you can head over to a nearby car wash and get a car wash for $20, there are several factors that separate a Spiffy mobile car wash from those automatic services.

Spiffy vs. Your Local Car Wash

Did you know that every time you go to a traditional car wash, you’re putting your vehicle’s paint at risk for buffs and scratches?
If you break it down, it makes sense. The force of those tall brush pylons is great enough to damage your car's clear coat and collect tiny pieces of paint. Then consider how many dozens of cars those brushes scrape against each day. That leads to even more damage, as paint from other cars gets thrashed against your vehicle.
In the end, what seems like a convenient pit stop for a clean car turns to the easiest way to eliminate your car's clear coat - resulting in long-term damage to your paint quality.
Fortunately, our Spiffy Car Wash services are designed to be as gentle as possible for your car and your schedule.

The Service

Every Spiffy Car Wash service starts with a light car wash and towel dry, both performed by hand to keep your car’s clear coat of paint pristine. Surfaces from front to back are wiped down, including windows, before conducting a complete vacuum. This service leaves your car shiny from the top down; making it an excellent option for drivers looking to give their car a refresh.

The Convenience

Before one of our technicians cleans your car, you can conveniently book an appointment during the day and time that works best for your schedule. Whether you choose to book on our website or download our iOS or Android app, you can set your service location at home or work. Once your appointment is scheduled, then it’s in the hands of our experienced Spiffy technicians.

The Technicians

With over 100 hours of training, these W-2 employees are well-versed in the knowledge required to complete your appointment. They will arrive at your home or workplace with an easy-to-spot blue Spiffy van, outfitted with all the water, power, and equipment needed for 5-star service. All they need is your keys.
