Phyllis & Mike Ortynski

Mike’s Auto Wash started with an idea over coffee. The discussion focused on a car wash that would offer the best of all things – great washes with equipment that is state of the art and reliable. The idea grew into a reality with a brand new building housing top end equipment, car wash chemicals that do an amazing job of getting the road grime off and other amenities and services that will bring you back more than once.


In 2013, Mike van der Velden and Mike Ortynski bought a vacant lot on the south side of Cranbrook, BC. After a year of planning, permits and research, the ground breaking commenced July, 2014.

Quality of equipment, wash chemicals and service are very important to us so we shopped around for the best. There are two bays, each featuring a LaserWash 360 Touchless automatic wash. There is also an external wand wash bay for over-sized vehicles and two vacuums.
