Q. I am a little hesitant to drive through the tunnel. It makes me very nervous.
A. No need to be nervous. We are more than happy to drive the car through the tunnel with either you in the vehicle or waiting at the other end of the tunnel.
Q. I drive a convertible which has a soft top roof, that’s why I don’t come to the car wash.
A. You can certainly come through the tunnel at Nashua Car Wash. The top brush will not harm the soft top; however, we can also raise the brush and it will not touch your roof. Soft cloths will slide over your roof for a rinse.
Q. Do I need to make an appointment for an Express Detail?
A. You do not need to make an appointment for an express detail, but it is suggested. If you come in on the weekend, you may have to wait longer than you would if you came in during the week. It all depends on how busy it is.
Q. Is there an easy way to drive into the tunnel? I never can come in straight.
A. There is a little trick to driving in the tunnel wash. When pulling up make as wide a swing as possible to make sure that both your front and rear wheels are aligned as close as possible. Once the attendant directs you in the tunnel, and you are in the track, take your hands off the steering wheel and let the car straighten itself out in the tracks. What happens is that people over compensate and keep turning their wheel which gets them in more problems. Hands off the wheel once you are in the tracks!!
Q. How often do I need to wash my car?
A. Many variables contribute to the frequency of washing a car. Road conditions, weather, where you are driving, and personal preference all play a key role. In general, we recommend washing about twice a month and more frequently during the winter, with an application of wax and undercarriage at least every other wash. This will provide a protective shine to your car’s finish and keep it looking new. Also do not let the brake dust build up too much on your rims, because once they get real dirty it can be very difficult to bring them back to new condition again.
Q. I would like to have my car detailed, but have no way of getting to work.
A. No problem, we are happy to provide free pickup/drop off service in the Nashua area for any full detail spa appointment. Please ask for further details.
Q. I may have left a belonging at the Car Wash. Can you help?
A. Often our customers will leave items by the self serve vacs and the bays while cleaning their car. If you are missing a license plate, keys, books, etc., please give us a call. We may just have the item you are looking for.
Q. How do I best protect my paint?
A. Making sure that you always have a good coat of wax on your vehicle will increase the longevity of its finish. You should normally have your vehicle waxed 3-4 times a year for maximum protection, however many people tend not to. At the very least you should make sure to apply a quality paste wax at least twice a year, usually before winter then again in the spring. The sun, pollen, and other road debris takes a toll on the wax during the warmer months, and by the time winter comes around your finish is left unprotected. By having that fresh coat of wax on your vehicle it allows all of the salt, ice, and sand to come off easier when washing your vehicle in these notorious New England winters.
Q. What is the best way to taking care of my expensive wheels?
A. Depending on the make and model of the vehicle, driving conditions, and also your driving habits, brake dust can build up and be a real hassle. It is always a good idea to get the wheel treatment when you see break dust starting to build up. Whether it is every time that you come in or every other visit, if it is not removed after a while then the wheel can damaged permanently.
