Turn that frown into a smile at a Murrieta Car Wash
Go and get your car washed in Murrieta!
Has it gotten to the point where you are driving down the road and you simply can’t see out of your windshield anymore? Are people starting to leave you messages on your car in the dirt? Then perhaps it is time to visit one of the full service car washes in Murrieta California.
This morning, because of a suggestion from Philip Ferrato, I decided to go and see for myself what was so exciting about my neighborhood car washes.
I must confess it proved to be quite the adventure.
California Oaks Car Wash in Murrieta
My first stop on the list was the California Oaks Car Wash on California Oaks Road, in Murrieta. California Oaks Car Wash is the first full service car wash to be located in Murrieta. My family has been using this car wash for years.
Besides the basic car wash that starts at $13.99, you can add more and more services to your visit until you reach the Diamond Detail which tops out the chart at about $199.99. The California Oaks Car Wash offers all hand washes, paying close attention to detail.

A car wash with more to offer.
The inside of the car wash is clean and comfortable. They have a counter where you can comfortably sit and watch as your car goes though the machine process. They also have an inside waiting area with couches and chairs and televisions so that you can be entertained while you wait.
My favorite part about the California Oaks Carwash is the selection of funny greeting cards you can read and buy while you are waiting. My friends and family love when I give them funny “carwash” cards.
California Oaks Car Wash also has a great selection of vending machines if you need to grab something to munch on while you wait, coffee is also available. Not only do they have greeting cards, but they have a very extensive gift shop area. This is a great idea for those who need a last minute gift for someone they love.

California Oaks Car Wash also has a lube center where you can get the oil in your car changed before you get it washed up. The people at the California Car Wash were friendly and seemed to honestly try to satisfy their customers.

Brian Dykstra Sales Manager of Bear Creek Car Wash
Bear Creek Car Wash in Murrieta
The “new kid on the block” is the Bear Creek Car Wash on Clinton Keith Road in Murrieta. I had so much fun at this car wash as Brian Dykstra, the Sales Manager, took me on a personal tour of the place.
In case you were wondering Dykstra is the same Dykstra as in Lenny Dykstra. You know, Lenny Dykstra the Major League baseball player, who built the “Taj Mahal” of car washes in Southern California. Brian Dykstra, Lenny Dykstra’s brother was more than helpful at introducing me to the exciting world of the “car wash.”
Bear Creek Car Wash
Bear Creek Car Wash means quality products.
The Bear Creek Car Wash is absolutely beautiful with all the “state of the art” equipment and amenities. Brian explained to me that Bear Creek Car Wash was all about quality. Unlike other car washes who skimp on the products they use, the Bear Creek Car Wash uses all superior name brand products like, Armor All, and Maguiars wax, to name a few.
The Tunnel at the Bear Creek Car Wash
Brian was anxious to show me the “tunnel”, which is the place the cars are soaped up and rinsed off. He even ran the machines for me while we were in there, demonstrating the high power pressure that the rinsing machine had. He explained that there were never any brushes used in this process, all the work was hand done, with attention given to every detail. I saw where all the towels were cleaned on site, and how each car was given special care when the drying off process began.

Next Brian demonstrated the process of soaping up and rinsing off the vehicle.
Especially impressive was the amount of pressure that the rinsing off process had.
Clean Towels are part of quality service.
More to offer than just a quality Car Wash!
Inside the Bear Creek Car Wash it was large and comfortable. There were clean and convenient restrooms, a large and spacious waiting area with televisions on each wall, sundry gift and food items available to purchase and free coffee for all their customers. The real attraction for me was the attached Internet Café, complete with desks to work at and free Wi-Fi. It was a brilliant idea to set up a place to get some work done while you let the professionals take care of your car. I loved it!

Who knew a car wash could be so exciting!
Brian Dykstra was “Mr. Excitement” when it came to the world of car washes, besides giving me the royal treatment, he made me feel like each customer was important to him, and that he cared if they were happy with their service.
The location of the Bear Creek Car Wash is perfect. It is easy to get to and spacious. I noticed that someone had their RV in getting detailed and was informed that they offer that service too; they certainly do have the room for it. They also offer complete oil and lube service while you wait too.

The slowest car wash ever! never enough staff to do the work. Also, the manager is so rude and needs to go to some customer service seminars.
If they continue this kind of service, they will be out of business soon.
waiting for the car outside, all you hear from customers is complaining on how long it takes to get their cars done.

California Oaks Car Wash seems to be interesting one, I had took services from DetailXperts in past and they are in car wash business from around last 5-6 years. They served me best and they gave a new look to my car but I even impressed from oaks car wash also so if I got chance to visit there then I am sure I will be able to get their services.
