So how did we get here? Well, the history behind the car wash/detailing industry may not sound that interesting, but it is actually quite fascinating. The following article gives a brief history of the car wash industry on the West Coast. Did you know that up until the 1970’s people didn’t put much stock in caring for their cars? As new vehicles became more expensive and older vehicles increased in value, people began to put more effort into the looks of their cars. As time went on, people decided it was more convenient to have someone clean their car for them, so the brick and mortar car wash grew in popularity. Today, America’s love affair with their cars continues on mixed with a want for convenience and a greater sense of environmental awareness. Hence, the rise of mobile auto detailing! Want to see what the new wave in vehicle maintenance is all about? Give Bowtie Detail Services a call and let us show you!
