While some might believe a car wash is a car wash, those in the know vote for Drive & Shine in Schererville.

“There’s actually a science to car washing,” says owner Frank Hatami. “We have a 180-foot tunnel, much longer than other facilities. That extra length allows us to soap your car six times while it travels through the wash process.”

The specialized equipment at Drive & Shine is upgraded as new processes are refined to deliver the best wash possible. Their cleaning solutions are carefully mixed to provide the correct pH levels for an excellent wash every time, and the longer tunnel allows Drive & Shine to use a more gentle cleaning solution that thoroughly cleans the car without damaging the clear coat finish.

“Our process is quite sophisticated,” Hatami says. “Our staff takes great pride in offering quality services at a reasonable cost. Once you try us, you’re a regular customer.”
