HAND WASH

Time required: 30-45 minutes

Cost:$50 + extra for station wagons, minivans, SUVs, and trucks. 

Details: Our unique 24 step hand wash is tailored to those not wanting to subject their vehicle to the scratches or the chemical etching caused by automated car washes (yes, even touch-less washes are bad). Rather than worrying about the inconvenient damage caused by these machines, let the pros here at NWAS take care of it for you and reclaim your weekends for driving or spending time with your family.In this thorough process, using overlapping “straight-line” motions we ensure that no spot is missed. After the car is washed and dried, we apply a synthetic spray sealant over all paintwork to help boost your wax/sealant and tires are dressed with a water based non-sling formula. This is a bi-monthly recommendation for our repeat customers in order to maintain the vehicles scratch-free look even longer or a new customer looking for a better solution for keeping their ride looking good longer. *As with any of our other services, hand washes require an appointment. Drop-ins are not encouraged. Thank you for your understanding*

  • 24 step hand wash over the entire vehicle, wheels, arches, and door, engine and trunk jambs.

Our Soft-Top Protection treatment consists of Gtechniq’s bio-degradable, environmentally friendly coating of C4 for vinyl, or I1 for cloth tops. This convertible top cleaner does a great job of deep cleaning, and they’re specially formulated to not discolor your top and breathe a little life back into its appearance. After a thorough cleaning, Gtechniq is applied to improve UV protection and add a durable hydrophobic coating to help keep your top drier & cleaner for longer. This service is also desirable for new vehicles to prevent weathering, and to extend the life of any soft-top convertible. We recommended this as a bi-annual treatment.

Smart Glass is completely streak free, and totally wiper blade proof. Other water repelling coatings are “wipe on, wipe off,” and only as strong as the physical bond they carry to a nonporous surface.
