Pros And Cons Of Visiting The Drive Thru Car Wash

If you have ever tried to go to a car wash with small children, you are aware of how stressful this outing can be and might even be tempted to avoid going. With a drive-thru car wash, you do not have to worry about keeping up with your kids in a waiting room while your vehicle is detailed because you will never have to leave the car! While this is a great service, there are a few pros and cons to using a no-touch car wash, and here are a few of them.

Pro - Staying In Your Car

If you have 5-10 minutes to spare, it is always a good idea to run your car through a drive-thru car wash. This will allow you a few minutes to relax, drink your coffee, and even provide entertainment for your kids in the car. The best part of using a no-touch car wash service is that you never have to leave your car. Usually, you will follow a sequence of questions when you pay prior to entering the car wash, but you will never have to step foot out of your vehicle.

Con - Exterior Wash Only

If you are looking for a full detail service on your car, then these no touch car wash services might not be what you are looking for. Most drive-thru car washes have a section set aside with vacuums for your convenience, but they are usually only operated by vehicle owners and not something you can pay to have done. While the exterior of your car will sparkle and have no residue, the inside will still be your responsibility.

Pro - Quick Process

One of the best benefits of using a no-touch car wash is that it is a very quick process. From the time you pay to the time your vehicle is done, it might take roughly five minutes to get your vehicle all the way through the wash. If you were to attempt to wash your car by hand at home, it would take a much longer investment of your time to get the vehicle totally cleaned off without streaking. 

Con - Might Leave Water Spots

Another negative aspect of using drive-thru car washes is that you might experience water spots if you do not stay under the dryers long enough. The best thing to do in this situation is to make sure you have towels in the car, or you'll need to drive around for a while to allow the vehicle to completely dry before going home and parking it in your garage.

If you're wanting to visit a drive-through car wash, recognize the pros and cons and read reviews about the wash. You'll be glad you did!
