Hand Car Wash vs. Touchless Car Wash

Car Wash


If you really want your car to shine on the Redondo Beach roads, there’s nothing like a good car wash! But if you’re getting ready for spring cleaning, should you choose a hand car wash or a touchless car wash for the best results? Both methods will get rid of dirt and debris, but there are pros and cons to either method. Find out which car wash you should choose with South Bay Mazda with our guide:

Hand Wash Car Wash

Does your car need a more thorough cleaning? Many Manhattan Beach customers prefer the extra TLC that comes with a proper hand car wash. Whether you choose to wash your car yourself or bring in a pro from our service department, the results can be showstopping.

Hand Car Wash Pros

  • Extra Care: When you’re using your own eyes to wash your car, you can be sure that every inch is spotless – including small crevices and undercarriage spots that machines might miss.
  • DIY Cost: If you invest in your own supplies, cleaning your car by hand at home can be extremely affordable!

Hand Car Wash Cons

  • Pro Cost: If you take your car to a detailing specialist, you might pay a little more for the extra care and the specialty facilities
  • Damage: It’s very important to know the proper techniques for a hand wash car wash and in the wrong hands, your car paint could potentially become damaged.

Touchless Car Wash

When you don’t have the time for a hand wash car wash, a hands-free car wash is the perfect solution. These automatic car washes use machines to provide a touchless car wash that’s effective and convenient for the driver on the go in Hawthorne.

Hands Free Car Wash Pros

  • Convenient: A touchless car wash is designed to work quickly, so you can get your car clean in just a few minutes.
  • Affordability: Because you don’t need to invest in supplies or pay for manual labor, a hands free car wash is extremely budget-friendly.

Hands Free Car Wash Cons

  • Surface Cleaning: While a hand wash car wash is very thorough, a hands free car wash isn’t nearly as deep. It may be gentle on your paint, but it isn’t as effective overall.
  • Water Spots: Even after you’ve been through the touchless car wash, you might have water spots on your finish that the dryer couldn’t get.
