The demand of car wash service nowadays is increasing as most of the people are too busy to wash car themselves. Car wash center has provided various car wash or car detailing services such as foam wash, waxing, polishing which cause convenient to customers.

During the peak hour, customers might have to wait for a few hours which actually waste customers’ time. Next, customers who are not familiar to the area are difficult to get a car wash service. They do not know which is the nearest car wash center from their own location.
