Can anyone recommend a car wash in canberra (I work near the city, live at Jerra)? One where people actually wash your car for you, not an automatic wash?

Has anyone ever used the star car wash in the city car park? How does it work? Do you have to come and get your car as soon as its finished or can you keep shopping. I really need to multi task lol.

Thanks and sorry for the dumb questions  xmas_tongue.gif

I've used them, it's really convenient - you just park in their section, tell them roughly how long you'll be and they SMS you when it's done. They move your car out of the car wash section when it's done so there's no rush to retrieve it yourself.

I do find them quite pricey though, and I would say they do a good job, but not great (but I just get the cheapest wash and vacuum they offer). Convenience wins out for me though  wink.gif
