Romeo’s Car Wash & Auto Detailing

With the constant layers of dust that seem to accumulate on everything lying outside here in Yuma, it’s difficult to keep a car looking like it hasn’t just braved a sandstorm. I am always looking for the best car wash for the lowest price, and so far the best has proven to be Romeo’s Car Wash and Auto Detailing.

Located on S. 4th Ave., just north of 24th St., the drive from base isn’t far. Its location is also in one of Yuma’s prominent commercial sectors, on the way to the Yuma Palms.

Romeo’s offers a simple car wash and hand dry for $4.99, which is the best deal I have seen so far. Also offered are many other cleaning options such as washing or vacuuming interiors, but these prices are significantly higher, too much for aesthetic car care for me.

In addition to the cleaning services, Romeo’s offers a detailing side. From waxing and coating, to window tinting, this shop offers anything a car enthusiast could want for making his hot rod shine.

While waiting for the completion of your car’s spa treatment, there is a small convenience store inside, offering anything a typical gas station would have in stock. For comfort, there is a small lounge area with leather chairs and a television to help pass the time.

Though this location has no website describing its services, it still deserves a B-, being marked down for slightly higher than average prices on advanced cleanings and longer wait times than a simple car wash should require. Overall, good service though.
