Yates Carwash & Detail Center has been family owned and operated in the heart of Old Town Alexandria since 1991.  Founded by Jeff Yates Sr, a true 'car guy' and automotive expert, we've always prided ourselves on the Personal Touch -- the little extra that our staff does by hand.

2020 brought lots of changes: We now have a brand-new, state-of-the-art tunnel machine, the latest cleaning chemistry which is eco-friendly and gets the job done, and fresh new look to the building.  But despite all the new changes - you'll see all of those familiar faces, now led by Jeff Jr, the founder's son, and his wife Kelly.   Come see us with your car soon!

The future is bright, but the past guides us on. So let's Keep On Shining!
