Dear Mr. Desai,
You may feel I am old time superstitious, But I sincerely feel that, your vehicle will give you better service and will never ditch you in emergency if you tend and pamper her. Washing is the least we can do Isn't it? I would really like to know how many of our team members feel the way I do.
Aashish..

Agree,
We spend quite a good time in car and I consider it a second home. Hence for me it should be as clean and neat as my home or office.
Every morning I wash my car (or wipe with wet cotton cloth) I feel her every scratch.
I feel pity for the people who own a car like an object, just ment for a to b travel mode and don't pay any attention to keep it clean.

I pay 400 for two cars and one two wheeler. That includes washing every day, and cleaning the interiors once a week (Sunday).
Other than that, i take my cars for a jet spray wash at least once in 2 weeks. Upholstery cleaning is done once in a quarter.

I pay my person Rs.350/month/car. I provide him soft water, micro fiber towels(separate cloths for roof, body & below body claddings/tyres) for the daily cleaning. Weekly, we would together spend cleaning the interiors(as Mon to Fri, most of the times the car is only on self single use without dirtying it much). Monthly once, the dash polish etc are applied. Once in two months, the leather polish/wax is done.

Obsessive...HUH!

I used to pay the guy Rs.450 till a month back for a Vista + Bike + Scooty. This was only for exterior cleaning everyday.
This month did some exterior detailing work at 3M and have asked him to stop washing the car everyday. Use the Jopasu duster myself everyday in the morning and ask him to clean it with water only on Sat or Sunday. But once the monsoons start i am not sure Jopasu is going to be of much help

I used to pay Rs.300 a month . The guy used to do a pretty decent job.

I used to pay 150 for car and another 50 for the bike at my previous apartment, the watchmen of that apartment used to do a good job, hence even if he missed someday, it was ok for me. When I shifted to a new place last year I started paying 200+50 for the car and bike, but this guy was just minting money from us. He didn't clean properly, there would be cloths mark all over the body and the windshield, after 7-8 months of warning and hoping, I gave up. First I asked him to stop cleaning the bike and then two month later I asked him to quit cleaning the car too. Now I take care of both of them. Takes around 25-30 minutes in morning. Haven't been cleaning the interiors too often, but will do it soon. Otherwise I clean it everyday with waxing once a week . With the amount I save in a year, I think I can buy good car detailing products.

I started with Rs.150 for daily wash and wipe, with once a month interiors. Now pay Rs.300 for daily wash and wipe with once a week interiors. I would rate the work average. Just helps the car to be sober as I dont get time from my schedules.

I end up taking the car to the washing center every 2 months and get it completely washed (underbody, engine and interior vaccum and polish) for Rs.150 bucks.

EDIT: I also pay Rs.50 for my wife's scooty for daily wash. No he does not wipe it and its left to dry like that :(

I pay Rs.300 a month for one car. This is for exterior everyday and you are entitled to interior cleaning once a week.

I pay 300 rupees for my i20 in Bangalore. He washes it 3 times a week. Going by the standard rates i see in the above comments, Guess i am paying more. The standard everywhere seems to be 300 bucks/ month (6 days a week). He washes pretty decent but nothing great. I make sure i wash it myself once a week as well. I gave him micro fibre cloth but he hardly uses them after a couple of days

Any other good cleaners in Jayanagar, Bangalore ?. This guy has been cleaning all our cars from past 4 years, so my parents trust him. But given an option, I would switch to someone who does the job better.
