Just a 340ml bot­tle of wa­ter used for each ve­hi­cle

place at the mo­ment and recog­nise that this is an im­por­tant point, as wa­ter in the area is pre­cious,” he said.

Golom­bick said he was pleased so many dif­fer­ent cus­tomers used his fa­cil­ity; from car show­rooms to au­to­mo­tive work­shops, taxis and minibuses and, specif­i­cally, res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to town.

“We also clean boats.

“What most peo­ple don’t know is that we wash each car with just 340ml of wa­ter, a Coke can of wa­ter,” Golom­bick said.

“Peo­ple also bring their boats on trail­ers and we wash those as well.”

In fact, Coastal Car Care is also mo­bile and able to bring its equip­ment to a cus­tomer’s premises.

“All our car-wash equip­ment is portable, so we visit Set­tlers Park once a week to wash the cars there,” he said.

“We also have spe­cial pen­sioner rates.”

But it is not just wa­ter sav­ings that make Coastal Car Care a good choice.

There are sev­eral other ben­e­fits in­clud­ing not pol­lut­ing the en­vi­ron­ment and the fact that the chem­i­cals used also pol­ish the ve­hi­cles.

“With the amount of salt air and wa­ter in the air at the coast, it is im­por­tant to make sure your car is pro­tected against rust.

“That is an­other rea­son to use our ser­vices,” Golom­bick said.

Coastal Car Care also pro­vides a valet ser­vice to its cus­tomers, and for a nom­i­nal fee will also ex­pertly clean the en­gine.

Just a week ago, Golom­bick had the en­tire area of the yard where the cars are cleaned tarred to elim­i­nate mud pud­dles and dust, while also al­low­ing eas­ier ac­cess to the premises.

After drop­ping their cars off at Coastal Car Care, it is an easy walk into town for cus­tomers want­ing to do so.

One can also sit in the pleas­ant log cabin and en­joy a cool drink or a cof­fee.
