Default re: How much do you pay the car cleaner?

The night watchmen of our appartment turn into car cleaners when they go off duty in the morning. My guy charges Rs. 300 per month for my Verna and Activa. Sundays are off and interior cleaning is once a week. Quite satisfied with his work. Best thing is that since they are our security guys who have been provided accomodation within the colony, they are reliable and do not skip work without prior notice (in which case the others cover up)

My car is parked in the open. Initially I used to do all the cleaning at weekends and later decided to take the services of the cleaner. He charges Rs. 200 per month, however he comes only 3 times a week and here in Mumbai during rainy season, the rain does most of the cleaning.

Earlier, I used to pay Rs. 300 to the apartment janitor who cleaned my Scorpio. Sadly, he never washed it with care (as expected). Sooner, I also found lots of scratches everywhere .

Then I explored Mirror Shine car-wash service, that's almost @ my door step. They charge Rs. 1000 to clean my car using Instafinish/3M car-care products, for thrice in a week. Very impressive work and the best part is I don't see any scratches anymore. My Scorpio looks brand new, though it's going to be a year with my beast next month. And, they have a website too Welcome To Mirror Shine

Rs.300 for cleaning my Honda City. Its basically the same rate that I paid for when I had the Optra (till March this year). The 300 bucks gets me a 5 day cleaning and interiors wiped down on Sundays.

The watchman in our building does the washing/cleaning of cars and bikes. Some of the residents have monthly deals with him, but I don't. I pay him every time he washes the car - Rs. 50 for car and scooter. I ask him to wash the car and bike about 3 times a month.

He does a fantastic job! No scratches or swirl marks!

300/- for Ritz & 150/- for Karizma. So 450/- per month for both.

He is supposed to clean the car everyday without any holiday and clean every Sunday from inside. But he often ends up taking a holiday once a week which I turn a blind eye to. After all we all need holidays don't we ?

I have a driver so usually i dont get my car washed by the cleaning people regularly. Chap was gone for a month and a half and ended up paying 1,000 for four cars per month, and that was after talking to at least half a dozen individuals.

I pay 300 for my Vista which the building security cleans everyday. He is supposed to clean the interiors twice a week, however in the last 6 months, I have not let him touch the Beige Black interiors. Leave that for 3M.

Sometimes, if the car gets dirty if I go to drop my kid to school in the morning, he again washes it for my Office drive. That's something I like.

I was paying Rs.250 per month for my Dzire, but was not satisfied and hence I started cleaning once in a week(Saturday or Sunday), It was a good exercise and time pass too. If am not getting time then I ask that guy to clean, he charges Rs. 20 for one wash.

I pay 400 per month for everyday external cleaning, and once a week internal. This is in HSR Layout, Bangalore. For upholstery, I give it to Hyundai.

I pay Rs 300/car/month here in South Bangalore. Since we have 3 at home, it totals upto 900/month.

The cleaner cleans the body with regular water and cloth. Once a week he shampoos them and twice a month he cleans the interiors. A bargain for me!

i pay 200 bucks for each car to my watchman, He makes sure that the car had enough scratches while he does the cleaning. Don't even ask about the wind shield . Black cars cant help.

Here in Koramangala I pay 450 bucks per month. Car cleaner washes my car exteriors daily with plain water and cloth and once in a week (weekend) he will clean both interior and exteriors (for exteriors he will use car shampoo). In an area like koramangala 450 bucks is reasonable i guess
