Wand Washes in Vancouver

Does anybody know of a wand wash close to UBC? Moved here back in November and gave up shortly after trying to find some. I've been using those petro washes and they've scratched my car a few to many times so the exterior has been getting neglected and dirty. Can someone please point me in the right direction? I googled multiple times and only seem to get actual detail shops.

The only place I know in Van that has a wand wash is Shine Auto along Terminal Ave. by the GM dealership.

That Husky has a car wash that use brushes (not touchless). Personally, I stay away from car washes that are not touchless. Bad for your car's finish. The OP was looking for wand wash facilities.

This totally doesn't have a wand wash unless its a new thing?! I'd be so fucking pumped.
As a former edmontonian I feel your pain so bad OP. When I drove back to edmonton this summer I washed my car for 3 dollars and it looked brand new.

The Husky on marine drive and 70th is a touchless one. I washed my van there last week.

I am wrong on both counts! Thanks for pointing out my errors.

The chemicals on touchless washes aren't much better for your paint than the ones with the brushes.

Thanks for the input guys! Searched the forum and found an old thread with someone who had the same issue.

http://www.revscene.net/forums/616456-wand-wash.html

Royal Oak Car wash is what I was looking for. A wand wash.
