New car wash on sukhumvit road anything better ? pattaya quikcarwash

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I found this: https://www.facebook.com/quikcarwash/

 

Anybody has tried the new Quick car wash at caltex pattaya gas station ?

 

As much as I saw the only difference is that they dry the car with air, but as it is washed by Thai hands who might not know anything more than all other locals, so why would it be better ?

 

Do they know that you should not use the same sponge that you have used to clean your wheels, to then clean your car body after it is dirty because of the wheels ? I have never found anybody who know this in this country.

 

Any experience ?

 

Thanks.

Rather than look at the Facebook link which (like all Facebook pages) contains nothing but mindless dross, have a look at their website which provides sensible and useful information:

http://www.quikcarwash.com/en/

 

I am pleased for once to read a website of which the content has been written by someone who can actually write proper English, even if some parts are two months out of date. I imagine that with that attention to detail the American owner has also impressed on staff things like not to use a dirty sponge and to clean from the top to the bottom.

 

If I remember I will try them next time my vehicle needs a wash but the place that I currently use does undercut them (inside/outside 149B with a free wash for every 9 purchased), and they generally dont make too many procedural errors.

From their website.

 

What’s a “Clean Car Guarantee”? – Simple. Come back to us with your receipt anytime within 5 days to get a free re-wash.  No questions, no jokes, no hassle.  Never worry about the rain dust, or those mud splashes ruining your clean car again!  Car still clean after 5 days? Bring it in anyways, we’ve got you covered.

 

I recall US car washes in Houston had a 'rain check' option where you only got a free re-wash if it rained within 24 hours of your original car wash. With the current monsoonal weather upsets ahead of the regular rainy season, a 5-day rain check means a whole lotta freebies. Granted that the re-wash will probably not be the full-serve type one originally paid for (it certainly wasn't in Houston), it does make the place look super busy.

 

Good luck anyway. Although my regular dark side car wash still checks the boxes, I will certainly give this one a shot next time I am in town.

.... I have never found any car wash in Thailand that does a good job for 149 thb...

 

It rather depends on what you mean by a "good job". Is it the best possible job? Certainly not.

 

The best car wash I've found here is the free one that my car dealer offers when I get the vehicle serviced. It's also the best value, unsurprisingly.

A good job is when your car does not come back with swirls. But maybe you have never looked closely enough.

True ! I wonder why people keep losing their time anywhere else (except Thai who just like to do nothing maybe) when a car can be cleaned in 10 minutes there.

Do they have a branch in Bangkok ?

Tried it because of this thread and thought it was very good, I'll only be using this car wash in future.
