ShineTime Express Carwash



Don’t you enjoy driving a clean, shiny car? Of course you do. There’s a new place in town that is designed especially for you — ShineTime Express Carwash. Their mission statement sums it up nicely. “Our mission is to produce clean cars with fast and friendly service to every customer at a great value, while demonstrating exceptional environmental responsibility and goodwill toward the community in which we live.”

ShineTime Express Carwash is a state-of-the-art carwash with a retro 50’s theme. Nobody went cruising in a dirty car back then, but there’s no need to spend hours washing, waxing and vacuuming now. In three minutes, you can have a beautifully clean car! Really! As you pull up to the entrance, you’ll be guided into position by one of ShineTime’s friendly attendants. They’ll clean the front grill and areas that the equipment cannot easily reach before you start through the wash. Put your car in neutral, and let it glide through the kaleidoscope of colors as their state-of-the-art equipment washes your car. Kids of all ages love this.

ShineTime Express Carwash offers five different levels of washing (from $6 to $20) plus free use of industrial vacuums, microfiber cleaning cloths and glass cleaner. Once your car is washed, pull into one of their 17 lanes, and you can make the interior as shiny as the exterior.

You can also join the Unlimited Wash Club, and select your package level ($20, $30 or $40 per month). With this, you simply drive through as the reader scans the membership sticker. There’s no sign-up fee or commitment. The membership charge is drafted from your account on a monthly basis. You can wash your car as often as you like.

ShineTime Express Carwash is locally owned by Adam and Erin Bartley. They are both North Carolina natives and have lived in Winston-Salem for five years. In addition to their entrepreneurial spirit, they also have a strong commitment to the environment. All the cleaning products used are biodegradable and phosphate-free. The business has a water reclamation/recycle system and uses a third of the water that one would typically use to wash a car (home washing generally used 100 gallons of water). ShineTime Express Carwash is a member of the Water Savers Program®.

As stated in their mission statement, ShineTime Express Carwash has a commitment to the community. A unique feature of the business is its fundraising model. Currently, they have five fundraising partners. Those who participate are given a four-digit code to enter at the pay station, and 20% of the revenue from that car wash goes to the partnering organization. Talk about an easy way to raise funds!

Stop by and experience the ShineTime Express Carwash! This family owned business prides itself on friendly staff members, clean grounds, environmentally friendly equipment/products and a fun time cleaning your vehicle exactly the way you want.
