After the Quick Quack had left streaks and missed spots, drove over to the Desert Hand Wash which dialed in my ride and got it squeaky clean.

D. Warner

These people are great! They went above and beyond what we expected. Our car was so shiny and clean both inside and out! But what what wasn’t expected was that they got a dent and quite a few scratches out!!! You are all amazing!

S. Anderson

The best car detailing in the Palm Springs area! They always do a fantastic job. Every time I have to be up here I always have them detail my car. Can’t say enough good things about them.

P. Riehl

Fine job! They really spend the time to do it right. Did the tire dressing and dried the jambs. Got the darn tree sap off my hood too! And got the regular service only – still got great service.

D. Lazar

I’ve been coming to this car wash for years. They don’t use brushes – very important to preserve the finish on your car. You’ll see every make and model of car from beaters to Jaguars … and the clientele are as diverse. I’ve never had a complaint about the quality of service and the guys who do the hand details are friendly and efficient.
