Construction on Whisper Express Car Wash is nearing the end.

Located at 1350 Phoenix Drive in Manteca – directly behind the Spreckels Park Staples – the self-service car wash will feature a fully-loaded express tunnel.

At 130 feet, Whisper will have a modern high-tech drive-thru tunnel, according to owners Sam Gill and Gurbir Singh.

Both are local owners. Singh, who has 15 years of experience in the car wash business, lives in Manteca while Gill resides in Ripon.

Their new car wash will feature some of the top technology in the industry. Included are a variety of brushes for cleansing of tires, undercarriage and the body of any vehicle coupled with hanging soft microfiber clothes and an overhead high-pressure wash system amid the application of high-quality soaps and waxes, capped off by the power dry system (a dozen blow dryers) at the exit.

“We offer tire clean and tire shine,” Singh said on Monday.

Construction on Whisper began in January on the estimated 1 ½ acre site. The 130-foot express tunnel Is housed inside the 5,000 square foot building.

Another feature of Whisper is the 31 vacuum stations equipped with an air pressure nozzle for interior and exterior. “You can use the air to clean cup holders or side mirrors,” Singh said.

Each vacuum, in addition, offers three different settings so as to not lose any compression.

Customers will enter Whisper at one of three stations with a single or one of the monthly package plans – one line is reserved for those who invest in a monthly plan.
