About Us

In 1998, we began our life’s dream and ambition to have our own business! Oyster Point Car Wash was created.


The birth of our business was not an easy one, as it took almost 18 months of planning and 14 months of construction for it to come together so we could wash our first customer’s car.

Now why would three people with over 65 years of combined retail business and management skills decide to take this type of a risk? Because, we love the retail business and we hoped that if we could pass this feeling along to our customer, we would be a success.

2015 marks our 15 year of operation in Newport News and, by no means, do we take that lightly. We understand that in order to survive not only for these fifteen years, but also another 15 and beyond, our commitment to excellence is required on a daily basis to you our customer. Without you, our valued patron, another minute of operating the Oyster Point Car Wash would not be possible.


Oyster Point Car Wash is not a franchise or chain, we are a local business, run by a local family. Come in and you will see the owners, working diligently on site, we are familiar with you, your needs, and are, in most cases, available at our business on a daily basis to meet your expectations. We have hand-selected each of our staff, and strive to treat them with dignity and respect - and expect excellence from each of our team. You will see that our staff has been with us for some time, and we are grateful to each of them for their service and commitment. We are proud of their personal pledge to you, and are gratified to see the many hours of training and orientation bearing the fruits of our labor.

In Memory of Robert Dessoffy Sr.

The birth of our business came from our father Robert Dessoffy Sr. who became an angel in late August 2014.


He is watching over us everyday!

Every month, several thousand vehicles pass through our facilities. Whether it be a basic wash service, a complete detailing, a full service oil change, or a self-serve wash customer, the service and commitment from our staff is the same - EXCELLENCE IS OUR MISSION. We demand excellence in all aspects of our commitment to you - from the owner/operators, each of our staff, and our suppliers. Our mission statement is "let's keep this customer for life."


Our commitment to excellence at a competitive value is contagious, and that is why many of our customers drive past competitor's wash facilities to revisit the best - OYSTER POINT CAR WASH. Many of you have told us you come from as far as Virginia Beach, Williamsburg, Gloucester and the Eastern Shore (just to mention a few). We are humbled! That is why we work so diligently to maintain the trust of you, our customer.

Our Bottom line...we work hard to provide the best value and service in the wash and lube industry anywhere in southeastern Virginia (and, perhaps the entire state).

We've also provided you a high degree of excellence through our web site. Keep coming back often, we will be promoting new services, coupons, etc. Once you register on our site, you are welcome to come back at any time to print off valuable coupons for wash/detail/and lube services. 

Let us know what you think. We've created a page just for comments, suggestions, "way-to-go's," or "pro's and con's." We welcome your input, and we are committed to reply.

Visit our comments and feedback page with your concerns, comments and suggestions. 

Thanks for your time, your patronage and...WE STRIVE TO MAINTAIN YOUR TRUST.


The Dessoffy Family
