Car Washing reviews in Portland

  • I wanted a basic drive through carwash experience. Instead, my car was “pushed” into the bumper of the truck in front of me.
    In the end, the damage to both vehicles was very minor. My car has a dented, scratched license plate and the truck has
    a scratched tow hitch. The truck also hit the car in front of him and that car has a scratched bumper.
    The worst part was that the attendant was rude and blamed me. We were told that we could call the police, file an accident report and make a claim to our insurance. The attendant simply did not care and offered no explanation for what happened. He was very rude.

  • I arrived at the company and 12:09 pm and requested the services I have described.  I was told that it would take 1 1/2 hours to perform because they were "super busy".  That was no problem to me because I was going to get lunch at a nearby fast food and do some business paperwork.

    After returning from lunch at 1:30 pm, my car still had not been moved into the detailing area.  I asked the manager and he said to talk to the detailing manager.  I did that and he said that they would get to it right away.  When I left for lunch there were 5-6 people working on detailing 4 cars in the bins.  When I returned at 1:30, those people had disappeared and only the detailing manager and a young man (who was doing his best to do nothing) were in evidence.  4 cars sat in the detailing area until 2pm with no owners in evidence and no one working on them. (I guess that people just leave their cars and take off to run errands with no return time set).  At 2 pm, I complained to the detailing manager and go the same story about them being very busy and that they would be working on my car in "just a minute".  15 minutes later, my car was pulled into the detailing area; but no one was working on it.  In the meantime, two SUVs owned by attractive young women (who had arrived after me) were pulled into the detailing area and two workers went to work on each car working very quickly and very rapidly to complete those jobs.  In the meantime, one elderly gentlemen started slowly working on my car.  Slowly, and methodically, he began working on my car (like watching grass grow, or ice melt).  In the meantime, the two cars owned by the two women were completed with lavish attention paid to polishing their cars on the exterior with extra cleaners and wiping down their windows multiple times.  Their cars were both completed and gone by 2:30 pm.    I wish I had had half the attention paid to my car that  they had paid to theirs.

    My work was finally completed at 3:15 pm.  I had been at the Provider name locked. for over 3 hours and the job done on my car I would judge as minimal at best.  The detail manager had disappeared, as had the overall manager, so I had no one to complain to.  I was so upset and angry at my treatment and the lackadaisacal job done on my car that I could barely wait to just get in it and drive away.

    You can be certain that I will never darken the doors of this business, even for an straight inside and out car wash, ever again.  I spent nearly double the time that they promised me (almost half a full work day), and received a mediocre job that I could have received at, say, Beaverton Car Wash, at less than half the price.

    This location of Provider name locked. should be avoided at all costs.  I have no idea about their other locations, and I don't intend to find out.

  • No appointment required. Bought "The Works" detail special for my 2003 Honda Odyssey. Exterior wash was pretty good, but interior was not as good as I would have hoped. The carpet was well-shampooed, but the console was not in great shape. I specifically asked them to remove 3 window stickers, and when I arrived for pickup, it hadn't been done. The other thing was that the car was to be ready at 1pm, but I couldn't pick it up until 4pm. When I arrived at 4pm, the vehicle was running with the heater on, and over 1/4 of a tank of gas had been used up. They must have left it running at idle for 3 hours!
