Buckeye Auto Spa is a full service car wash that serves the Upper Arlington, Northwest Columbus, and Clintonville neighborhoods; we're just a short drive away from Worthington, Hillard, and Dublin.


Our history

Buckeye Auto Spa originally began in the 1970s as an express car wash. As commercial growth on Henderson and Kenny roads developed in the 1980s, the car wash was redeveloped and became a full service car wash known as Clean-a-Car Suburban Corp, loosely related with the Klean-a-Kar brand that had been a mainstay fixture in downtown Columbus.

In the early 2010s, the owner passed away and the business was passed onto his brother, who later sold it to the current ownership and re-branded it as Buckeye Car Wash.

It was around this time that a number of full service car washes began to close in the Columbus area, namely one in Dublin; when that wash closed, many of its employees came to work at Buckeye Car Wash. Eventually the wash was re-branded, again, as Buckeye Auto Spa to convey the sense of pampered service.

Who We Are

Buckeye Auto Spa is a locally owned and operated business. Many of the employees are family related, and this allows us even greater dedication in our work.

Our manager and detailer has over 25 years experience in detailing, and has been working in the Columbus car wash scene since 1991. Many of our employees have years of experience working at such iconic car wash businesses like 'A Touch of Class' and 'Klean-a-Kar,' only coming to us when those businesses were forced to close.

All of things coalesce into one thing: being the best car wash in central Ohio, putting out the best car wash possible. We want you to leave our business thinking, "That was the best car wash I ever got."

The owner has operated numerous car washes of various types in Franklin county.
