Why Pay Up to GBP 7,200 for a Car Wash Service

A 30-year-old accountancy graduate is offering the Britain’s (and maybe world’s) most expensive car wash service. The young entrepreneur in question is Gurcharn Sahota, who is charging up to GBP 7,200 per vehicle, each taking up to 250 hours to clean. Sahota says he uses a computerized microscope to check the bodywork for scratches otherwise invisible to the naked eye.

The business, as reported by the Telegraph, started five years ago, and since then Sahota has washed numerous supercars like Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces and the Le Mans-winning McLaren F1 GTR.

“People come to me and they want the best treatment going for their car. If you’ve got a £500,000 car then a few grand for cleaning is worth it. Sometimes I’ll work through the night to get a car looking absolutely pristine. They’re world class motors that deserve a world class wash,”
Sahota said for the aforementioned source.

Sahota also gave some car washing tips to the Telegraph:
  • Use warm soapy water.
  • Add warm water mixed with a PH neutral shampoo in one and plain water in the other.
  • Use a lamb's wool wash mitt which only costs £8 and is better than a sponge.
  • Always wash from the top down.
  • Use different cloths on the bodywork and wheels.
  • Avoid acidic and high-alkaline wheel cleaners and any silicone-based products because they stain.
  • Use a towel instead of a chamois leather to dry the car.
  • Always check the cleaning materials regularly to make sure there's no dirt in them.
  • Always dry the bodywork in small circles to prevent streaking.
  • Take your time and enjoy washing the car.
