Car wash services offered in Metro Manila, Philippines

Car guys love their cars, that's a fact, and it'll always be true no matter what car it is. The car is an extension of the owner’s personality and for some, it's the owner's dream made manifest. For others, cars serve as a tool for their livelihood, being their primary source of income. 

Keeping a car in tip-top shape is always foremost in a car owner's mind, and one way to do that is by making it presentable with a good washing down. Many car owners will prefer to wash their own car at home, but they don't always have the time to do that.

Maybe they don't have enough time even during weekends, or maybe they just don't have the knowledge and confidence to wash their own cars. And trust us, a lot of things can go wrong out of something as simple as giving your car a wash.

Also, many areas in Metro Manila have been experiencing water service interruptions, so people would rather save water for other uses like cooking and bathing. To get around such interruptions, many of the car wash businesses in this feature offer waterless carwash services.

So here’s Philkotse.com’s guide to highly recommended car wash services in Metro Manila.

How About Self Service Car Wash?

Even though we're on the final weeks of 2019, Filipinos have yet experience an automated car wash service or even self-service car wash, except in select areas that have coin-operated water pumps (mostly found in the provinces). You might be wondering, "Why would I want to pay to wash my own car?".

Self service car wash is like a bonding time with your car aside from driving it

Believe it or not, there are people who view car washing as a therapeutic experience, helping them to de-stress. It also serves as an opportunity for you to bond with your car, akin to looking after a beloved pet. But before you even spray water on your car, make sure you have these essentail equipment for a DIY car wash in your garage first.
