From $11,000 Car Washes to Self-Serve Car Washes

These novel car wash services offer drivers new ways to clean their vehicles and turn a mundane activity into a source of entertainment.

On the high end of the scale, the Prime Car Wash offers a membership-only service for cleaning, while Gurcharn Sahota boasts being able to provide the world's most expensive auto services for $11,000. On the flip side, drivers who prefer to take a more hands-on approach to vehicle maintenance will appreciate the self-service model introduced by Wash&Drive, as well as apps like Washly, which make car-cleaning professionals available on-demand.

In order to announce the coming of a Mad Max movie to theaters, Warner Brothers Canada set up the Dusty Car Wash, which does more for the purposes of marketing than cleaning. Car washes as promotional tools have also proven popular ways to raise money and awareness for the Zombie Walk and Star Wars movies.
