Company Description

Simon's is different from other car washes in lots of ways, First of all, we use freshly washed mitts and microfiber towels on each car. That means a lot of laundry for us, but it's important since trapped grime and grit can scratch your car's finish. Secondly, our crew is seriously the best in town, with most being with us since our opening in 2004. Lastly, being unhappy with what were known to be the best on the market, we've developed our own line of car care products that we believe are the very best out there, and use these on each and every car that comes into the shop.

Used to be a regular customer but they only now take 'reservations' for a car wash and interior cleaning; mind you, this is not a full detail. They do good work but making a reservation for a $50 car wash is a waste (especially when I see the place is empty). It's nice enough if you have the time, but it's become a bit too bougie and took my money elsewhere

Excellent. Honest and on time, hardworking and detailed. Came right to my front door, gave an evaluation and performed perfectly. Robert had the car in like new shape in just a few hours for a fair price. Don't hesitate to try these guys out.

Simon's did an excellent job. The car interior looks like it rolled off the show room floor. I had salt stains in the carpet, dog hair everywhere and it looked immaculate when they were finished. Well worth the $325 to get the car sold and bring a higher value.

The quality of the work is great and I’ve been a customer for about 8 years now. However, I give 3 stars because the last 2 times I’ve tried to get my car washed they wouldn’t take walk-ins but by appointment only. I waited in line in the street for 10 minutes with 2 cars in front of me, which both did not have appointments because they backed out of the driveway, to find this out. Although this can be a sign of good service, if people are getting turned away or being told they have to wait 4 hours, it doesn’t make you want to go back. I recommend that you make an appointment if you’re trying to get in here. To the owners: I would suggest putting on your website a recommendation that on Saturday you should make an appointment so people are at least prepared for the situation.

We got option 2 (exterior and interior Simon) in preparation for our new baby. At 38 weeks pregnant almost everything is stressful, but not this! Car looks so great, nice and clean for the new little one. Staff was incredibly friendly and flexible. We asked to come in at 1030, but were delayed until 11. No problem.
