Best Place to Get Your Car Washed in Woodbury: Readers React

It looks like Woodbury drivers might be able to squeeze in a car wash today before the next round of snow and cold. Do you agree with our Facebook fans? Let us know in the comments section below.

With a high near 30 degrees, some sun and the possiblity of even a little melting out there today, drivers in Woodbury might be able to squeeze in a car wash today.

Which got us thinking.  

On our Facebook page during one of those rare nice days in January, Patch asked about the best place to get your car washed in Woodbury.

Here’s what folks had to say on Jan. 8. Do you agree? Have another spot you like? Tell us in the comments section.

Scott: The bp on valley creek ..........bomb and its cheap

Matthew: BP!

DeAnn: Definitely the BP!!

Ken: free would be good

Andy: Heppners on Hudson Rd

Brianne: Heppners, for sure!

DeAnn: There aren't nearly enough car washes in Woodbury!!

Heather: I like the one at Kwik Trip off of Woodbury Dr/ Hudson Rd. Always comes out clean:)

Rhonda: BP on the corner of Woodlane Drive and Valley Creek Road.

Rhonda: I will have to try the Kwik Trip since it is right by my house. I LOVE the BP. I am not crazy about Heppners. I normally get the full wash when I get my hair done in Brooklyn Center. Really inexpensive and comparable to the Downtowner (which does an awesome job).

Doreen: BP I was there today - I like that they have an attendant that hoses off the car!

Woodbury Patch: There aren't any self-service spots in the Wood, right?

Rhonda: Nope. The closet self-service is off Larpenteur and White Bear Avenue across from the Plaza Maplewood theater.

Rhonda: At the BP they give you a "wipe" to clean the interior of your car.

Elizabeth: Heppners!

Rebecca: BP for my month to month wash - I used to go to Heppners but that was years ago. The last few times I've went my car almost hit the wall coming off the automated belt because no one was there to direct it safely off the belt. So if I want a really good job, I now go to a place off of White Bear Ave.

Sarah: NOT Super America!!

Kris: BP

Mary Jane: For sure, BP. And the line moves pretty fast because the cars move along on the belt, vs. just pulling into the bay while the machine thing moves around your car (like SA).

Aaron: Holiday on Woodbury drive and valley creek moves fast. Holiday on 94 and manning just added a wash. Buy one unlimited month for $20 get one free. Closest self serve is Hudson across from Fleet Farm, closer than Saint Paul.

Vicky: I've tried Heppners 4 times, hoping it would be close to as good as downtowner. Everytime its been really bad. No more. Love BP.

Laurie: I like Downtowner. Worth the trip and the price (especially with a coupon). But, if you must have one in Woodbury, BP.

Heppner's Auto Body (Vicky), my name is Laura Klatt Jacobson, and my mother and I own Heppner's Auto Body. I was disappointed to see your comment about our shops. I would appreciate you giving me a call at the Commons Drive shop to discuss your concerns. (651) 714-1471. Thank you.

Woodbury Patch Thanks for chiming in Laura.

In response to Heppner's, IMO they need to lower the price of your basic wash.(outside only). $10 + tax is just too high. I don't mind paying $15 or whatever for a full serivice (inside & outside), but I only need that done every 2-3 months or so. I am not going to pay $10 for my weekly external wash when I can get it for $5-6 everywhere else.

There is a self serve in St. Paul Park next to Oltman Junior High School.

I have been washing at BP since their remodel and love the 5 mos. for 99$ they do in April / May every year.

It looks like I really need to try BP. I've been using Yocum Holiday on Valley Creek and Woodbury Drive. I like the wash pass they offer, but my car rarely gets clean and always has a film on it. The wash is also frequently down. Kwik Trip off of Woodbury Dr/ Hudson Rd always turns out nice. In regards to Heppner's, I really wanted to like them, but for the price I pay, I don't think it is worth it. Windows never get clean inside and I feel like they rush details.

For the " I Wanna Do it Myself" bunch, try the self service car wash just off of Cahill av. on 65th st.E. in IGH(bring lotsa quarters).
Sunny February 14, 2013 at 02:58 PM
BP is great. Sorry Heppner's, I have paid for extras that don't get done or done well. It stinks to have to call and let them know that something was missed. If I can't get to the Downtowner, then it's the BP all the way.

Heppner's is great! Always a good wash!
Ed Kapler February 14, 2013 at 05:24 PM
Is there a phone app that will let you know how long the line is or the wait time for a Woodbury Car Wash?
Linda February 14, 2013 at 05:32 PM
I have tried Hepners many times over the years and have always been disappointed. The interior is never as clean as the Downtowner.
Paul Whackernutz February 14, 2013 at 09:50 PM
The Downtowner hands down the best. No comparison to Heppners.
Charles Shaw February 15, 2013 at 01:53 AM
I really hope Heppner's reads these comments. I really want to have them in our community and to do well, however as others mentioned, their quality is not good for the price paid.

I like SA, mostly for the Speedy Rewards points. With every purchase of gas or car wash, I automatically earn points toward all kinds of items I want or need anyways...

Was disappointed with Heppner's today. Discovered the Royal car wash does not include vacuuming the cargo area of my Honda CRV. When I called about it she said it is on the ala carte menu and is $2. extra. I'll go to Kwik Trip for outside and into Stillwater Ponies was for interior. Would go to Downtowner but it's way out of my way.
