There is a 24/7 car wash on the southeast corner of Main St & Mountain Hwy in N. Van. They have vacuuming facilities, and a free air pump.

Not touchless, but I'd recommend Shine as well.

It used to be called Easywash which was a bit cheaper, but now it's called North Shore Auto Wash and price ranges from $12-18

There is a 24/7 self serve wash near Hastings/Holdom in Burnaby just don't use their brushes for a true touchless car wash

The place is called Britewash. There is a touchless bay. $15 for the most expensive exterior package, includes a lot like cut polish and rainX. I'd say it gets about 80% of the wheels clean.

If you're in Coquitlam by Coquitlam Town Centre try Westwood Car Wash. Been going there for years. It's 24/7 but no touchless tunnel just self serve bays. Equipment is never broken and the owner lets you bucket wash if not too busy.

One tip when using a self serve bay: Before using the foam brush, make sure you blast the hell out of it with the wand to get all the dirt and shit out of it. It's not the brushes that scratch your paint but rather whats been stuck in the bristles.

True, should have said it will more likely lessen the chance of deep scratches. Swirls will be unavoidable when using a brush.

Pitt River Shell on the Mary Hill Bypass is 24 hours, along with its carwash.

I think the Petro on Granville Rd. in Richmond is 24 hours, and I believe their carwash went touchless a couple years ago.

The Mohawk on SW Marine drive across the old a&b sound, it's open 24 hours and it's one the best touchless carwashes in the city plus they use rainX.

for the shine auto wash i really dont trust this place, those yellow things on the ground looks like they will scratch your rims even though they say they wont.. my friend uses that car wash and the last time i saw his car it had a crap load swirls..

Yup, that's the one.

One thing I will suggest is if your wheels have caked on brake dust buy a wheel cleaner and spray it on before going into the car wash. Your wheels will come out spotless because this car wash has spray jets specifically for your wheels only right as your enter. Another suggestion is go slow so you can take advantage of the spray jets, they're on for a good 45s so don't rush.

If you're around Blue Mountain/West Coquitlam, there's a square of automotive services along Lougheed Highway, between Guilby and Alderson, I believe. Coquitlam Wash World. They have a Groupon for their touchless I believe. I like to go in with a toonie to just give my car a rinse off in the self serve bays once in a while. I believe it is 24/7 too.

Someone told me that the Esso ones work after the station closes down but I can't verify this.
