Gem Car Wash is a full-service car wash & full detail center. If you drive around I’m sure you’ve noticed all the express car washes that have been going in. We are one of the few full-service car wash establishments remaining in the region. Unlike the express car washes in the area that offer low price, drive in, drive through, dry it yourself & vacuum yourself, we do all of that for you. We also provide full detail services; including full detail work inside & out. We shampoo carpets and seats, we provide several kinds of wax applications, headlight lens restoration, windshield repair service & many express detail options that are available while you wait.  Our gift shop has a variety of different items for purchase while you’re waiting for your car to be cleaned by us. Gift cards, drinks, snacks, and a variety of car care products and accessories to help enhance your driving experience.

There are several things we pride ourselves on which you may not experience at an express car wash. Yes, we are more expensive, but we do our absolute best to make sure you car is clean inside & out & your overall experience is a pleasurable one. Our staff is there to help in any way they can to make sure you are satisfied, and you leave feeling like you got what you paid for. When you pull in, our service advisors will help counsel you on the best wash package for your needs and will make recommendations based on your cars condition for any extended detail service your car may require. Your car can mean several things to you and most people who own a car take pride in keeping their car clean, so it holds its value. We also spend a tremendous amount of time in our cars, whether it be for work, visiting family, running errands, hauling the kids around to their different activities or going on vacation. There’s nothing better than having a clean car when you spend as much time in it as we all seem to do.

If you have children, you know how messy they can be especially with food in the car. When it gets to the point where you just can’t stand it any longer, bring your car in so our staff can look to see what the best detail solution for your situation would be.  We have special equipment that can not only clean the interior but with our drive-pur product, it will remove most stains and sterilize the fabric or leather.

Bugs, birds & certain trees, can splatter, poop, or distribute hard to extract marks on your car that can damage your cars finish. Before that happens, bring your car in to have one of service advisors or detail specialist recommend the proper wax treatment to protect the clear coat & finish of your car so those nasty stains or marks don’t worsen or ruin your cars finish. We have special chemical compounds & waxes that once applied adhere to the cars service and bond with the finish & clear coat to add an extra layer of protection. Once applied the bug spots come off easier & water spots never have a chance to develop. Our detail staff is very experienced some with over 18 yrs in the business just detailing cars. Our detail shop staff is also trained by the product manufacturers to apply the products we use in such a way as to obtain the best results.

In conclusion, when it comes to cleaning your car, protecting the finish on your car or making the inside of your car sparkle like new, leave it to the staff of Gem Car Wash & Detail Center to provide the right advise, products & service to protect that precious investment & allow for a much better driving experience.

There is nothing more frustrating than hearing that all to familiar sound of a rock hitting the windshield. You immediately try to zero in on where the sound hit & see a rock chip that may or may not have started to splinter or create a spider mark on the windshield. Rock chips can take place any time of the year and with summer construction projects starting to take place, rock chip occurrences can increase.

It’s important to repair small chip marks immediately when they occur so they don’t spread and create an unrepairable crack.  Most people don't fix their rock chips because they think they won't damage the windshield. Rock chips lead to cracked windshields and this can affect your safety along with the integrity of the windshield. It is much more expensive to replace a windshield than to fix a rock chip! Because of that fact, most insurance companies will pay for a rock chip repair without affecting your premiums or any out of pocket expense.

At Gem Car Wash and Detail Center, we have trained technicians to help assess the damage to your windshield to determine if one or more of the chips on your windshield can be repaired. We’ll even call your insurance company with you to ensure you’re covered. The process is simple & fast, usually just 10 minutes. We inject a resin into the area that seals the crack & prevents future spreading.

Next time you’re in ask one of our service advisors for help and we’ll work with you on getting your rock chips repaired for free.
