Beaches Car Wash exterior

Our History

Originally from Seattle, Washington, the Lindley family moved to Jacksonville, Florida in 1952 where they started the first of many family-owned and operated car washes. Their first car wash was established in that same year and was located in the downtown section of Jacksonville near the Main Street Bridge. Two more locations followed in 1954-1955 at 4th and Main and on Stockton. In November 1969 the St. Nicholas location was opened and in March 1989 the Jacksonville Beach location was opened for business. Beaches Car Wash has been a destination ever since. The central locations are easy to access and a combination of high-pressure water and the safest cloth brushes ensure a clean, shiny, and dry vehicle.

Beaches Car Wash offers services to meet any customer’s needs – Full-Service Wash Packages, Express Exterior Wash Packages, Express Detail Packages, and a list of A La Carte Services. The Express Exterior Wash is one of the most popular services, taking only 5 minutes to complete and perfect for those with limited time. And our Gift Gallery offers an eclectic collection of unique items, including specialty gifts, apparel, décor, and greeting cards sure to please.

Exceptional customer service is a top priority for the team at Beaches Car Wash. With a number of employees who have been on the team since opening day, we go out of our way to meet and exceed our customers’ needs on a daily basis. Our customer-centric focus has resulted in numerous accolades, including being voted Best Car Wash by Folio, Void, Beaches Leader, and Ponte Vedra Leader publications.
