Gold Coin Car Wash is a coin operated self-serve car wash. We have 7 locations in the bay area, most open 24 hours. Our car washes operate with Gold Coins (tokens) and our token machines accept $1, $5, $10 & $20 bills.

We are a hot water car wash with a foaming brush in every bay! 

Each wash bay has a digital time display showing remaining time (with a warning buzzer) at 1 min. left,   allowing you to add more time as needed without having to restart a full cycle. 

Every site has powerful Power Vac® vacuums with dual motor suction power; vending machines on site offer supplies such as Kleen-Rite Kleen Shams towels, California Wet Towel window cleaner, Armor All®, and Little Trees® air freshener; and a Dri-Foaming carpet shampooer with a scent machine.
Most bays are 10 feet tall, San Ramon bays are 12 feet. All washes in Oakland have one side bay without a roof to accommodate trucks and other large vehicles.

Washing your own car lets you do it your way and get some exercise at the same time! Come on in and give us a try. We really appreciate our customers!

Our business is environmentally friendly, using only 2.5 gallons a minute. Average hoses -10 gallons per minute. Automatic car washes -73 gallons and conveyor car washes -44 gallons.
