Meet our talented crew at Bumble Bee car wash and check out what one of their happy customers had to say:

“I just wanted to let your team know that my vehicle was appraised at $2,500 at the dealership, versus just the $700 that the resale dealership was going to give me BEFORE I detailed it with you all, because of the detailed job you did on it. The dealership said it was one of the cleanest cars they’d ever seen. Thanks to you, I was able to roll away in a new car! Thank you!”

Our Car Wash Manager, Andrew is incredibly proud of his team. Give him a call and get your car in today at 410-634-2112 ext. 1333.

“I’m so proud of our Car Wash Team! They work very hard and are learning new skills every day. They take tremendous pride in their work and committed to those who support Benedictine Vocational Programs. They express their gratitude through their attention to detail,” said Andrew.
