We can not believe June is here.  This is usually the ramping up for our busy summer season, but BOY HOWDY May was a busy month for us!  It was aMAYzing!

That crazy “dirt rain” in the middle of May that left Chico’s cars a mess was great for business and we were so lucky to have so many awesome and patient customers.  The lines were stacked for both the Feathertouch and Touchless automatic car washes with an average of 6 to 8 cars in line for each! The five hand bays also drew a crowd with a 3 car line up at times throughout the 3 days of mass cleaning.  Although the traffic through our little family owned car wash was great, the best part was meeting all our wonderful customers!

For those 3 days we stayed close by; usually directing traffic, explaining the differences in friction and touch-free automatic washes and just chit-chatting with our customers.  We have such a diverse customer base and it was so fun getting to know each and everyone of them.  We got to share lunch with business people on their lunch breaks; who grabbed their food and waited in “the line” with us.  We got to enjoy “play time” with mothers and their beautiful children; who love the colorful foams and smells of the drive-thru car washes.  We also got to treat our little furry friends; we have treats for all the doggies (big or small) if you see one of us on the premises – grab a snack for your pet!

I guess we really just wanted to say thank you to our aMAYzing customers! We appreciate every single one of you and we are so lucky to serve you all!

Car Washing Tips


California Car Wash in Chico California

Welcome to the north state’s most state-of-the-art self- serve carwash!  We are conveniently located on the north end of the Esplanade in Chico, California and are locally owned and operated.  With our automatic touch or touch-free carwashes and five hand bays we have choices for everyone.

We start with the newest in technology available with our Touchless carwash bay with four levels of washes to choose from.  Just make your selection and drive on in.  For those who prefer the brushes our Feathertouch carwash is right next door.  It also has four levels of washes to choose from.

For those do-it-yourselfer’s, next we have five self-serve hand wash bays all with hot water and hot water applications.  With loads of options such as pre-soak, triple foam conditioner and clear coats you car will be sure to shine! We have eight vacuums equipped with shampoo and fragrances available at each of the four interior cleaning stations.

Our payment types are just as varied as our products with plenty of choices for everyone.  We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover or you may purchase tokens and/or an express key.

“Express Key” is the newest in payment technology available.  You purchase a key with a set amount of money.  Then you just insert the key in whichever product you are using and it will deduct the money from the key as you use it.  No more having to stop to add more quarters or tokens!!  And it’s reusable! When you have used up all the money on the key you simply reload more money.  They make great gifts as well!

So come visit our new facility located at 150 Commercial Avenue on the corner of Esplanade between Eaton Road and Shasta Avenue.  Our bays and driveways are wide enough to accommodate SUVs, trucks, limousines, boats, trailers and motorhomes with ease.  We are confident that once you have visited our facility you won’t be able to wait to come back!
