PALM SPRINGS — Quick Quack Car Wash, a 2,629-sure-foot automatic car wash, is in the planning stages for a pad within the Palm Springs Marketplace Shopping Center located at 1717
East Vista Chino Road,

The project, currently in the plan-check phase, will have one wash tunnel with eight bay vacuum stations under a canopy, according to Glenn Mlaker, associate planner. No opening date has been announced.

Two employees will be on hand during business hours from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. seven days a week. The employees will assist the customer with paying at a pay station and directing the vehicles onto the
conveyor that guides the vehicle through the wash which lasts no longer than three (3) minutes while customers stay inside the car. There are no employees to dry the cars and the vacuum stalls are self-serve and free of charge.

Quick Quack Car Wash has been recognized as an environmentally friendly, Green Business and a Certified Sustainable Business.

Things Quick Quack wants you to know:

  • Washing a car in a driveway or parking lot releases harmful soaps, chemicals and road phosphates into fragile ecosystems through storm drains designed for rain water.
  • None of Quick Quack’s water goes down the storm drain.
  • When released into the storm drain, even tiny amounts of detergent concentrations will kill fish and their eggs.
  • Quick Quack uses only environmentally safe soaps.
  • Driveway and parking lot car washing uses an average of 80-140 gallons of fresh water per vehicle.
  • Quick Quack uses less than half of that amount, and in some cases as little as 10-12 gallons per car!
