About Mariner Car Wash
In June of 1988, Mariner Car Wash opened as a family run, community-involved full service car wash and detailing center. After spending twenty years as general manager of the Eldorado Car Wash in Tampa, Fla. and leading it to become one of the three highest volume car washes in the nation, Richard Lane wanted to open a state of the art car wash in his own hometown.
With over 40 years of professional car washing experience, having served on the board of the Southeastern Car Wash Association and maintaining a 36+ year membership in the International Car Wash Association, he enjoys giving Bay Area residents the best, safest and most current services that car washing provides today. He and his wife, Jane, are dedicated to quality of service, commitment to community and serving their customers' every need.
