Swift Carwash and Valet Centre has wonderful services that feature an in-depth selection of vehicle cleaning with some unique packages.
What makes them great is that they offer different techniques for cleaning your vehicle. This includes hand cleaning, wash systems and even self-service bays.
We appreciate this range of options as customers can really pick and choose which technique would work best for their cars, and in some cases even combine different methods.
This is a great option especially if your vehicle has intricate and hard to reach fixings.
All of these services are supported and managed by a great team of staff. Customer feedback has indicated that they found the customer service to be excellent and very helpful.
If you would like to dive into self-service washing, but it is your first time doing so, you can be assured that the staff would be more than happy to help.
Taking a look closer at their set of services, we like that the range of methods also supports a variety in prices. For customers looking for cheaper options, they have both self-services for jet wash and vacuum bays.
On the other hand, we like that their professional valet services have a wide selection of options for different customer needs, from faster express services to deep clean full valets.
We would however like to mention that they are very busy during the weekends. It would be better if you can afford to pass by during weekdays or go earlier during these weekends.

- Uniquely has a valet service for car dressing
- Also have extras that customers can add on to the service

This provides customers with an ample amount of space and options should one of the branches be full at certain times.
Taking a look at their services more closely, they offer different valet packages for washing and valeting. Some of the features include the primary use of handwashing as well as polishes and shampooing.
We like that even the most standard option provides customers with thorough cleaning features.

5. Mobile Valet Limerick
|SERVICES||Mini Valet, Deluxe Valet, Full Valet, Premium Full Valet|
|ADDRESS||6 Amharc Muileann, Singland, Limerick|

Mobile Valet Limerick offers distinct car cleaning services unlike any other. With over 5 years of experience, they have established a system that makes valeting even more convenient for the car owner.
Probably the unique feature that stands out from them the most is their mobility. Mobile Valet Limerick, as their name suggests, brings their services to you.
We find this to be very appealing as a common complaint about some car washing services are their long wait times.
Customers will highly appreciate this, making it very convenient for them to just schedule, wait and pay all from the comfort of their preferred location.
Their services cover Limerick and the surrounding areas. In light of their mobility, we also like that customers don’t need to provide any equipment or resources, like water or electricity, at the specified location.
It gives customers a similar comfort as they would in going to outside car washes, but still enjoying the convenient factor of having it done at their preferred place.
In terms of their packages, they offer four distinct valet services from mini to full valet. We really like how their full valet service has leather and upholstery care, which is a great option for those who want their interiors very thoroughly cleaned.
We do forewarn however, that customers can only choose from these four types of packages, making it not as customizable as other car wash or valet options.
- Provide the service at your preferred location
- Customers do not need to provide electricity or water
- High quality and excellent results
- Great customer satisfaction and easy to coordinate with
- May be slightly more expensive compared to traditional car washes
- Services must be taken as packages, not as customizable with features
Cars Look like They Came out of a Showroom
The guys from Mobile Valet Limerick done 2 full valets for me recently outside my house and I have to say it was the best money i ever spent, both cars were like they were just out of the showroom. I would highly recommend and will be using this service from now on. -Liam Shan
My valet has just finished and I have to say, the car looks almost new.
Fantastic service and I would highly recommend, you wont be disappointed. -Terry Bussoli
