White Bridge Auto Wash is a full-service car wash and detail center located in West Nashville on White Bridge Pike.

 
 

 
 

Family-Owned & Operated
Since 1987

Karl Peters opened the doors to the White Bridge Auto Wash in 1987, after moving from Detroit and bringing a bit of Motor City with him. The business is run as a true mom-and-pop with their son Paul taking over the family business in 2013. Paul continues the tradition of excellent customer service and attention-to-detail, retaining WBAW's long-term and well-seasoned employees and earning yet another recognition as "Nashville's Best Car Wash/Auto Detailer" by the Nashville Scene for the eleventh consecutive year in a row in 2018.

Superior Customer Service & Care for Your Vehicle

While we have state of the art equipment, there is no replacement for the human touch.  Each car is hand-prepped and finished, ensuring we clean all of those hard to reach places other washes miss. There is also a separate express entrance for exterior-only washes. Please call to make appointments for the Detail Center.

Our bottom line is your satisfaction which is why we offer complete personal service, a loyal customer reward program, rain checks with every wash*, a gift shop, and free access to Wi-Fi while you wait for your car.

 
 

 
 

Nashville's First & Only Solar-Powered Auto Wash

In 2011, White Bridge Auto Wash became the first wash in Nashville to install and use solar panels. We strive to be the most environmentally-friendly wash in Nashville without sacrificing cleaning quality.  WBAW also utilizes T8 fluorescent and LED lighting to save energy. Our car wash uses one-tenth of the water that it would take to wash a car in the driveway or parking lot on average. Unlike driveway washing, all of our water is treated and does not drain into the the storm drains.
