We accept most cars, vans and trucks up to 84 inches in height and must have at least a 4-inch ground clearance. Unfortunately, we cannot wash trucks with dual wheels.
We guarantee the safety of all factory-installed equipment in proper working order.
Almost certainly! All we ask is that the pickup bed be
empty before going through the wash. This is for the safety of your vehicle and those of other customers. Also, some side mirrors are incompatible with our process and certain types of modifications that employ oversized
or off-road tires or radically raised suspensions may not be compatible.
Because the way our equipment spins, unfortunately, unprotected front license plates that are held on by only 2 bolts will sometimes bend in our car wash because they are made of a thin piece of aluminum. Manufacturers and dealers are required to give you a proper mounting bracket for your car in states that require them (like Wisconsin), although most of them don’t unless you ask! Not to fear, if your plate gets a bit bent out of shape please let us know and we will give you a sturdy, protective license plate bracket at no cost to you. We want your business
and won’t let a cheap piece of aluminum get in the way of giving your car the best wash possible!
Yes. We use cloth wash materials and mild cleaners.
However, the paint should be allowed to cure before washing. Consult with your body shop for curing times (usually at least 30 days for repainted cars and body parts)
. (Paint on new cars is fully cured before delivery.)
Yes. Most car makers caution against automatic washes
that use acids on polished aluminum wheels, since these can stain — or use carbon or plastic tire brushes, which can scratch. At BlueTeam Car Wash,
we use no such acids! We only use soft cloth washing material, so your wheels are perfectly safe.
Yes. However, once the integrity of windshield glass is compromised by
rock chips (even very small ones), it becomes more susceptible to changes in temperature. So, while you may wash your vehicle with windshield damage, cracks, or chips may expand.
It’s always best to repair or replace a damaged windshield immediately.
Seriously, do you wash your hands without rubbing them together? Do you wash your clothes without agitation? Do you keep your teeth clean by just gargling water and mouthwash, or do you brush them? Okay, you get the point! It is very difficult to get anything really clean without contact - even with high pressure and harsh chemicals, like many "touchless washes." That's why at Magic Car Wash, we use closed cell foam and soft cloth material (no brushes) and 100% safe biodegradable shampoos to gently clean your car. While our soft cloth and foam make contact with your car,
it is the best way to get it clean and will not scratch or dull your clear coat finish.
Usually, yes. However we ask you to please remove your antenna prior to washing with us, just in case. Power antennas are hollow core and will break if left in the raised position. So please lower all power antennas. BlueTeam Car Wash is not responsible for antennas that have not been lowered or removed. Shark fin antennas can not be removed unfortunately. Several manufacturers have known stability issues with their shark fin antennas, so we can not be responsible for those antennas either. Aftermarket products such as CB and cell phone antennas should be removed prior to washing as well. If you're ready to ditch your long car antenna, we sell stubby antennas that fit almost all vehicles, for only $20. We guarantee those antennas not to break,
so if you buy one and it ever breaks in the car wash, we'll give you a new one for FREE!
Unfortunately, we can't be responsible for aftermarket accessories. Most customers who have bug shields wash their vehicles with no incident. However, problems can arise if the shield has already been damaged by rock chips or by stress cracks around the installation screws (which can be hard to detect), or if it is made from low-grade plastic. If you need a new bug shield, we recommend products made of Lexan, such as Lund® or Deflecta-Shield®, which are virtually indestructible. Trailer hitches will not be harmed by our equipment; however, to allow our "wraps" to give you the best quality wash possible for the rear of your vehicle, we recommend removing a hitch if possible. Also, hitch receptacle plug inserts
should be removed prior to washing as they may break or come loose in the wash process.
If you get to the car wash before the egg dries, it might be removed in the wash. Dried egg is very corrosive, and damage starts almost immediately. Contact us directly if the egg has already hardened
for a possible detail service to properly remove the dried egg.
Our wash tunnel will unlikely remove road tar or tree sap. If you ask us, or if we notice a spot or two, we will use a special cleaner to remove it for you. If you have multiple spots all over the car we will be glad to remove them for you for an extra charge. Otherwise, there are special products sold specifically for that purpose. Whenever possible, try to remove the stain while it is still sticky. NEVER use abrasive cleaners or pads to remove stains from your vehicle's finish. Make sure to clean the area thoroughly after treatment.
Consider protecting the area with a paste wax after cleaning.
Our wash tunnel will remove most bug remains, particularly, if washed soon after the "splats," but we cannot guarantee that all bug remains will be removed by the tunnel wash. In our Supreme through Platinum exterior washes, in all of our full-service washes, or for $2 additional to any other wash, we include a "bug juice"
application and manual bug prepping as you enter the tunnel to help eliminate your bugs!
This is usually a sign of oxidation, which occurs as paint ages and decays from exposure to sunlight and road oils. You can slow the process by washing your vehicle often, applying our Poly Sealant regularly and a coat of hand wax at least once a year. If oxidation has already occurred,
try cleaning the paint with a paint cleaning compound, then polishing and waxing the finish.
Regular application of our Simoniz Ceramic Sealant creates a polymer barrier that helps protect clear coated surfaces from UV rays and airborne contaminants, as well as acids from leaf stains, tree sap, bug splatter, and bird droppings, all of which can eat through the clear coat and cause permanent damage. Simoniz Ceramic Sealant is designed to provide a protective polymer barrier for up to 30 days from the date of application.
So make it part of your "routine maintenance" by including it with your car wash regularly.
BlueTeam Car Wash accepts Cash, Mastercard, Visa, Discover,
and American Express at all locations. We also accept BlueTeam Car Wash Gift Cards, BlueTeam Car Wash Book Cards, and the latest technology, the RFID pass for our unlimited customers. Our automated kiosks are able to process discount codes, barcodes, read cell phone screens, and QR codes. We even have a mobile phone app that you can use to redeem washes at the kiosks! We are, by far, the most technologically advanced car washes along the Lakeshore!
The RFID tag is a sticker about the size of a stick of gum that is applied to the lower left-hand corner of your windshield where you’ll never notice it. Using the latest RFID technology (radio frequency identification) each vehicle is instantly recognized as it approaches our automated pay stations. Once a vehicle is identified, it is granted access to the wash tunnel and our computer automatically provides the proper wash package.
The RFID is currently used in our Unlimited Wash Club only.
