Vista Palms Car Wash Testimonials

Is washing my car at a commercial car wash better on the environment?

Answer: Definitely! In commercial car washes, chemicals are filtered and sent to a water treatment center for cleaning. Conversely, a driveway car wash sends untreated waste water (including soap, oil and sludge) directly into the environment via storm sewers that lead into our rivers, lakes and streams. A driveway wash uses up to many, many, more times the water than washing at a commercial car wash

Can car washing products that are safer for the environment still clean my vehicle very well?

Answer: Absolutely! Car wash products don’t have to be harmful on the environment to effectively clean vehicles. In fact, Blue Coral® Beyond Green products used in our car wash deliver powerfully clean, well-protected, shiny vehicles. And importantly, they’re easy on the environment.

What does it mean to be 'sustainable'?

Answer: Products, processes or developments that are sustainable mean they meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. From the factory to the final rinse, the Blue Coral® Beyond Green products used in our car wash along with our water reclaiming support our commitment to respect the environment every step of the way. Even your trash water bottles and soda cans are recycled at Vista Palms Car Wash & Professional Detail Center!

Is it possible to wash vehicles using chemical-free solutions?

Answer: Never! Water is a chemical. All living things, including you, are made of chemicals. However we do use environmentally friendly products. We proudly feature Blue Coral® Beyond Green products in our wash that minimize the impact on our environment.

How do you get cars so shiny?

Answer: The “showroom shine” on the cars that come out of our tunnel has made us famous. People often ask us how we get cars so shiny. The “secret” really involves a number of different things.  We start with the best soft cloth we can find, position it just the right way on our equipment and keep it in top condition through a very rigorous maintenance program. We also use the highest quality wax available and apply it to your car under very high pressure. The end result is a shiny car that reflects well on you and us!!

What makes Vista Palms different from its lower price competitors?

Answer: Like cars, home appliances and just about every other product or service, carwashes are available at different levels of quality. Not all carwashes are created equal in terms of the equipment and cleaning agents they use, the training of their staff and the attention they devote to detail. Vista Palms Car Wash & Professional Detail Center continuously invests in new technologies like our wireless printers, ticket writing devices, brush materials and chemicals. We are always aiming for the highest quality materials available. This investment allows us to turn out clean, dry and showroom shiny vehicles time after time – quickly, safely and reliably. So, although our price may not be the lowest, we believe that we deliver the best value to our customers. Apparently a lot of people agree with us, which is why we’ve been San Diego County’s car washing leader for over five decades, we’ve never tried to be the “cheapest” carwash in town only the “BEST”!

What about the cleaning agents used in your wash, do you invest in them too?

Answer: Absolutely! We never have purchased the lowest priced soaps, waxes and polishes. We are constantly looking for better, safer and more effective cleaning and polishing agents that are formulated to meet the specific demands of this region. Different areas of the country have different road and soil conditions, different climatic conditions and different issues regarding things like droppings, bugs, salt, and water types. As a Beyond Green compliant business Vista Palms Car Wash & Professional Detail Center is dedicated to finding the right mix of cleaning agents for this area. Strong enough to remove yet gentle enough to condition and prolong the finish on your vehicle.

How do I know my car is safe?

Answer: For your security the ENTIRE lot is under 24hr surveillance using the latest in camera technology. Color video optics and monitoring of your vehicle from the moment you come on our lot. You and your property are in safe hands to ensure you and your vehicles safety from theft, vandalism, or damage.

You have installed a lot of new computer equipment - why is that?

Answer: We use a hand-held computer terminal to write all wash and service orders. The reason we do this is three-fold: First, the use of computers allows us to complete transactions FASTER, which saves you valuable time as our customer. Second, the increased speed and efficiency that result from computerization helps us operate with a higher rate of EFFICIENCY, which allows us to hold our costs and prices down. Third, the use of computers reduces the risk of errors when entering your wash orders, which allows for the best customer SERVICE possible making the experience of visiting Vista Palms Car Wash & Professional Detail Center better for you as a customer.

How do you know when you have washed your vehicle 10 times to receive the free 11th wash?

Answer:Easy! Every time your order is taken your license plate is entered onto your ticket we keep it in our database and when you come in for the 11th wash our systems already know not to charge you. It’s our way to say THANK YOU for trusting us with your vehicle and keeping us part of your family.

How long have you been in business?

Answer:Vista Palms Car Wash & Professional Detail Center has been proudly serving the San Diego Community since 1958 and has always been located at the same location.  In fact we were among the first in southern California to use the tunnel conveyer car wash system.
