Our Story

Hard Work & LOCAL Roots

Art’s Car Wash II, a family owned & operated express “tunnel” car wash was founded by Little River Native Art Wheless who works “hands on” at both of his car washes along side his family as well as some of his local, life long friends.

After many years spent breaking his back in the carpet cleaning industry, Art saw an opportunity to break free when, in 2001, he purchased his first car wash at 3191 Highway 9 East in Little River. Mr. Wheless created a business where locals who already knew and trusted him could bring some of their other cleaning needs to his location instead of Mr. Wheless going to theirs.

Art’s business flourished and in 2003 he bought his competitor’s location here on US-17.    In 2018, after years of planning, he completely demolished the old wash and then, in 2019, the Wheless family opened a new state-of-the-art express tunnel wash-Art’s Car Wash II Featuring Art’s Tsunami Falls Wash!
