MediaCityUK car valeting service run by ex-forces joins The Garage
MediaCityUK has welcomed a premium car valeting service with a difference to its multi-storey car park. Based on the second floor of The Garage, Urban Car Spa runs a valeting service with military precision, recruiting ex-forces personnel from the Manchester area to run its waterless car wash.
The aim of Urban Car Spa is to help some of the thousands of ex-forces workers who leave the military every year, by helping them to reintegrate into employment.
Ex-army officer, Jonny Rees-Davies says: “One of the toughest battles for many who serve our country is when they leave the armed forces and look for employment. It can be a tough transition, but by offering employment in one of our UK-wide car washes and valet operations, our ex-military heroes get to work in a commercial environment, in a team structure that is familiar to them and in return, we get people that we can rely on to do an excellent job.”
Urban Car Spa places great emphasis on being environmentally friendly and as such, uses a waterless wash. This means that they save up to 40 litres, or half a bath of water per wash compared to a pressure washer.
