Automyčka Express (or Express Car Wash in English) is a premium car wash service that saves you time and makes you and your car feel brand new.
 

Automyčka Express has emerged as the largest network of car beauty centres known for the highest quality of hand washing and detailing of cars in the Czech Republic. You will find this quality express car wash within premium shopping malls across the country. This company will manually clean your car in just one hour. No streaks, no fuss. Automyčka Express already has 26 branches in shopping centres across Prague, Kladno, Pilsen, Hradec Králové, Brno, Ostrava and Bratislava, and are keen to expand the brand further.

Automyčka Express is the first Czech and Slovak premium member of the International Carwash Association (ICA). The company is certified according to EU standards - ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Furthermore, this franchise is a fully ecological operation, and includes its own modern wastewater treatment plant. The company regularly tests to meet the strict limits of chemical analyses of discharged water samples.

To date, this company has hand washed over 1 million cars. The company aims to maintain and grow their customers not just through a premium service and convenience, but also through their well-established loyalty program which can save the consumer up to 30%. Also, for those who don’t like the mall, Automyčka Express now offers a fully insured pick-up service. The base cost for this service is about 25 Euros if you live within a 10km radius from one of their service points.

During the pandemic when shopping malls were forced to close, the company adapted to keep the suds flowing. Richard Kettner, CEO of Automyčky Express utilised the companies pick-up service to reach their loyal fan base, while giving the brand loyalists a chance to use their innovative service without cost. "We will pick up the customer's car right at his home, clean it thoroughly, disinfect it with ozone and return it. Pick-up service is free. All this in compliance with strict hygiene measures,” said Mr Kettner.
