Norm’s Hand Car Wash & Custom Detail

Norm’s is conveniently located behind the Wilmette Metra Station, next to Chase bank near the southeast corner of Green Bay Road and Lake Avenue. Although Norm's is in the heart of Wilmette’s business district surrounded by a range of shopping, dining and business opportunities, it has been an “in-the-know” type of business since 1982. To Norm’s loyal customers, it was always known as the “hidden gem” and “best kept secret” within Chicago’s North Shore suburbs.

However, in 2009, new, local north shore family ownership took over the business, remodeled the facility, upgraded to the best available hand washing equipment, materials and supplies, then instituted an efficient production process. It then became time to let the public at large know the superb, affordable and convenient car washing experience available at the new Norm’s Hand Car Wash and Custom Detail.

Norm’s guarantees you complete satisfaction. By using the highest grade of soaps and waxes, micro-fiber Chenille hand washing mitts, soft plush waffle weave micro-fiber drying towels, Norm's staff is absolutely committed to making sure your car receives a superior wash. If you’re not completely satisfied with the quality of your vehicle wash (inside & out) come back, tell us what we missed and we’ll provide you a free wash…no questions asked. Norm’s wants to be your ongoing source for washing and detailing your car!

We invite you to take a look around our website to get to know the many features and benefits, including the VERY rewarding Rewards Program and the convenient Park and Wash Programs, including the popular "Lot Club," for anyone who commutes by way of the Wilmette Metra Station.

If your love for a clean car knows no limits, we've got the perfect program for you: Norm's Unlimited Wash Program (A.K.A. the Shine on Club)! For a flat annual fee you will receive the ability to get your car washed any day Norm's is open for business.

Also, consider having your car washed while you dine, shop, go to the bank, or just mill around downtown Wilmette. Your car will ready and clean with a brand new shine when you return! If you have any questions or comments at all, please feel free to call or e-mail us.
