Car Wash vs Hand Wash

Cleaning your car is either a task you enjoy or thoroughly detest. Luckily there are other options for those who would rather not pick up a bucket and sponge as you can pay someone else to do it instead! In fact, there are dozens of different car washing establishments per city to choose from which means that your car will receive a long overdue bath without any of the elbow grease. With this said, these establishments fall into one of two categories; an automated car wash or a traditional hand car wash and in this article we are going to go over the pros and cons that both options offer…

Automated Car Wash

Since this method of car washing is operated by machines it means that the same effort will be put into each and every vehicle that drives through it. After all, the people who you pay to hand wash your car will grow tired and that means that they may not afford the same care to your vehicle as they did to the one before it. With this said, automated car washes can be incredibly pricey in comparison to hand washes as the people running the establishment not only have to afford the cleaning products, they have to run the machinery too. Of course, it is also important to recognise that automated car washes are known to be much more time efficient as the job is completed on a conveyer belt that ensures that every single car is cleaned quickly yet efficiency. However, whilst the cleaning is often of a high quality, the drying may not be as good and this can cause water spotting to occur.

Traditional Hand Car Wash

Since hand car washes tend to use sponges it means that there is less of a risk of damage to the paintwork. After all, nobody knows how long the machines inside an automated system have been there for which means that using it once could lead to some devastating damage to the body of your car. Traditional hand car washes offer the ability to receive a high-quality cleaning of your vehicle without the damage and it is a service that can also be customised in order to fit what you do and don’t require. On the other hand, it can take a lot longer than using an automated service as there are only so many members of staff available, so you must wait your turn and this can be difficult if you are on a tight schedule.

Whether you prefer the speed and efficiency of an automatic car wash or would rather pay for the attention to detail that a hand car wash offers, none of it really matters without a vehicle.
