Car wash places in orange county that don't have tracks?

Does anyone know of a car wash place in OC (anywhere from mission/aliso Viejo to santa ana area) that has a car wash that doesn't have rails? my car is too low to get onto any of the places with a rail and before you ask why I don't wash it myself I can't because I live in an apt and don't have access to a hose but also because sometimes I just want a quick wash.

thanks,

My buddy anthony can probably just wash it for you for really cheap. It will save you from damaging your paint, I really regret going threw those things. It left mad swirl marks on my car. He's local too.

He's a member on here, pm me if your interested I'll get you his #.

How much do they charge at that place on Brookhurst?
There's this guy that comes to my work, he charges $15,he does a nice job
but can't guarantee to be there every week. Sometimes he won't show up for 3 weeks

there's this place in Santa Ana/Fountain Valley I always take my car, they have tracks but also offer complete hand wash... prices are going up due to summer weather, but for $25 you can get a full wash and wax..Harbor Car Wash is the name.

Car wash places in orange county that don't have tracks?

There's a few guys with dumped cars that go to a Self Wash on Edinger between Tustin and Irvine, Open 24hrs and the dudes there are cool, Usually find them there Friday nights.
