Livingston Car Wash: It's Time to Spring Clean Your Cars


LIVINGSTON, NJ — Spring-cleaning is not just about cleaning out the closets, preparing the house for April holidays and showing off to barbecue guests—it’s a time to start anew in all aspects of one’s life, which includes having the family car cleaned, washed and detailed. Right now, Livingston Car Wash is offering spring-cleaning packages to make cars “Kosher for Passover,” and as shiny as an Easter Egg.

Paul Ritter, who owns the family-operated Livingston Car Wash on East Mount Pleasant Ave., invites residents to take advantage of the bumper-to-bumper services the business has to offer. According to Ritter, you can’t go wrong with the unlimited wash packages and VIP club plans that are available.

“You save a whole lot of money and it’s convenient—you leave here, it gets dirty, you come right back,” said Ritter. “If you wash once a week, you’re ahead of the game.”

Starting at only $44.85, Livingston Car Wash offers monthly passes that include a minimum of a full-service wash and Wheel Brite Rim Cleaner every time the pass holder drives through. Package pricing depends on the customer’s preference of waxing, shining, express seat cleaning, carpet shampooing and express detailing. These monthly, unlimited wash plans come at one low price per month, with no cancellation fees and no contract. Express service only takes about 30 minutes and no appointment is necessary.

For more than 48 years, the Ritter family has been serving northern NJ with full-service, professional, brushless car washing. Coming out of the winter months, Ritter preaches the importance of getting one’s vehicle professionally-cleaned and detailed. The family lives by the motto, “If your car is not becoming to you, you should be coming to us.”

As winter comes to an end, Ritter says that now is a good time to rid cars of road salt accumulated due to the bad weather.

“It’s so bad for the environment to wash the car yourself because of the contamination that gets into it,” Ritter said about ridding the road salt from vehicles. “If [road salt] sits too long, it could end up in the break lines.”

Livingston Car Wash really cares about its client’s cars. It only uses trained professionals with more than 40 years of experience in the detailing business for reconditioning vehicles. According to Ritter, full detailing is an extensive cleaning and reconditioning of both the interior and exterior of a vehicle, and professional auto detailing is the key to getting the car back to its “showroom shine.”

The Livingston Car Wash opened in 1966, which ultimately gave Ritter a unique outlook on what it means to have a professional, 100 percent brushless cleaning of a vehicle. Ritter and his cousin, also named Paul, grew up visiting the family car wash and spent their high school and college years learning all aspects of the business.

Growing up in the Livingston community, Ritter jumped at the opportunity to take the reins from his cousin, Larry Ritter. Larry set up shop in Livingston because he loved the tight-knit sense of community and the fact that Livingston is full of entrepreneurs and small business owners much like himself. Nearly fifty years later, the business is thriving under Ritter’s ownership.
