At Clearwater, the safety of your vehicle is our #1 priority. In a very close 2nd place, is the safety of our equipment. In order to maintain its safety, we may need to turn your vehicle away due to a variety of hazards. One of them is snow & ice. If your vehicle has what we would qualify as “excess” snow or ice, you may be turned away.

This includes but is not limited to snow and/or ice:

- behind tires or packed in wheel wells & mud flaps that can fall into & damage our conveyor chain

- in a truck bed, creating or covering potential fly-out hazards.

- on the roof of your vehicle that can fly off into our equipment & vehicles in front of or behind you

Feel free to come back as soon as the hazards we note are clear!

Truck Bed Policy:

We are always looking out for the safety and best interest of our customers. One thing we have learned is that having any items in your truck bed is dangerous. It’s dangerous to our wash and brushes, your vehicle and any vehicles that come in behind you. If you are in line and our seller inspects your truck bed and relays our policy to you, it is for the safety of everyone that you pull to the side and remove the items, or return later with the items removed from your bed.

We will allow certain items that are permanently affixed (bolted) to the truck bed, including tool boxes, spare tires, fuel tanks (with hoses securely restrained), and 5th wheel/bed mounted hitches.

This list is not comprehensive, please ask a wash attendant for more information regarding your vehicle.
