Posted 19th Aug 2018Local
Spotted today, Morrisons have an offer on their automatic car wash, basic car wash for £1 which is usually around £3. Is an option if you are after a cheap car wash.

Would expect it to be a national promo given the point of sale material and not aware that Morrisons do specific local car wash promotions. Worth a check next week if you are doing a grocery shop anyway.




Bronze - Shampoo wash, wheel wash and rinse - £1 (was £2.99)
Silver - Foam wash, wheel wash, wax and dry - £2.50 (was £2.50)
Gold - High pressure pre-wash, foam wash, wheel wash, under chassis wash, wax and dry - £4 (was £6.99

No, I've not noticed it at my local, and they didn't do it last time the offer was on.
Good grief, anyone who uses this is asking for swirl marks on their car. Avoid these types of car washes at all costs - unless you couldn't care less about your paintwork.

So you would prefer the risk of damaging the paintwork through poor technique using such a car wash? The paintwork is one of the main features of any vehicle and you will eventually come to sell the car so yeah, good luck with that.

The only risk I can see is injecting a little nuance to such a discussion.

Who said everyone drives a car they intend to sell? Having such a car shouldn't mean a choice between expensive (relative) washes or driving a dirty car.

Ha ha
Hot if you've got a lease/company car, a battered old banger or just don't mind swirly marks on the paintwork!

If you don't like those swirly marks, hand-wash it with a micro-fibre mitt (two-bucket method!) before polishing and waxing it! And give it an occasional claying for good measure! And remove any tree sap or bird droppings immediately!

Once you start doing cleaning your car properly regularly, you'll start to enjoy it! And it's good exercise!

You could buy a car, neglect it, drive it to the ground if you want. It's a choice but it's still an expensive asset to maintain & to hold to. You could lease a car but do you think the leasing company will be very happy that the car is badly scratched.

You can spend as little or more what you like on car washes, like I said it's a choice, your choice but it will show very clearly when it come to sell day with punters knocking off hundreds on your car if it's badly maintained.

What's the most 2nd expensive expenditure one who pays throughout their lifetime? House/rent is first then car/transport which will need insurance/vehicle tax/mot/fuel/maintenance is second. Wouldn't it make sense to protect your assets as long as you can?

Then why even bother to get it washed it if you feel that way?

One of my workmates got herself a lovely new car on the work's car-leasing scheme. I mentioned that I had spent part of my weekend cleaning my car and she replied that she was too busy looking after her young kids to clean her car and that she relied on the rain to clean it! And she wasn't kidding! I shudder to think what it looked like when she handed it back at the end of the three-year lease!

Suddenly, not caring about very minor abrasions, almost unnoticeable without specific attention on your own car means you're not only unethical enough to care about someone else's property but also illegal.
Thank you for your judgement.

so whats the sweet spot? spend hundreds during the time you have the car on washing it to pin hopes on that it will be recouped when sold or don't spend a lot on washing and know it may sell a bit short? its all relative in the end and averages out.

1992 called, they want their language back.
Not for me but great price for some.

Much safer to engage in the 3 bucket method and take care of the vehicle.

Why? The dirt would probably protect it? And dirt just washes off, I know a few people who only wash their cars once a year and when they do wash them, they come up sparkling, like new.

To each is their own, the only time it becomes acceptable is when you no longer give a monkeys about your car. Like Agila drivers.

To be honest you don't need a magnifying glass to see damaged paint. Its clearly visible. Especially in sunlight. You can see damaged paint from 20 feet away in sunlight. But fair enough not everyone is into detailing
Cheap scratch-o-matic? Oh yes, count me in lol

Washing it by hand leaves swirl marks, using a car wash leaves straight lines.

They dont come up like new , trust me , when they are new water beads and when you leave the car for months at a time between washes the dirt gets into the lacquer and stops the water beading. Hence the 'Rough' feeling to older cars paintwork.... Google 'Claybar car paint' to see what actually gets into car paint.
Great find

No it doesn't - as long as you follow the correct technique. You clearly do not know then. Use a microfiber mitt, NOT a sponge. Use 2 buckets for rinse and wash. Use a Microfiber drying towel not a chamois. Do all these things well and you should not get swirl marks by hand.
