FLORENCE, S.C. — Customers at Eva Car Solutions will have the opportunity to get in a round of 19 holes while waiting for their cars to be serviced.

Eva Car Solutions, which is holding a grand opening today for its Florence location, provides professional window tinting, custom vinyl and professional detailing and cleaning.

Dr. Enomba Ekwoge, owner of Eva Car Solutions, said he and his wife moved to Hartsville about four years ago.

“Being new in the country, I went back to get my doctorate. I started a car-wash business and when I finished school, the plan was to drop it,” Ekwoge said. “It just grew and I continued to run it.”

Ekwoge opened the first Eva Car Solutions in Hartsville and is now expanding to Florence.

“We have a vision to expand and have as many offices as we can in the future,” Ekwoge said.

Eva Car Solutions provides auto detailing, hand washing and cleaning and custom vinyl. Ekwoge said the company has a machine that will professionally cut tinting for windows. Eva Car Solutions also has a program it is looking to sign just 50 people up for.

“If you have a car, you can pay $50 monthly and you can get that car cleaned three times a month,” Ekwoge said. “A truck or SUV is $60. This is hand-washed and you can’t really beat that.”

“Our prices are very affordable and the work is good-quality work,” Ekwoge said. “We use very high-quality products that are environmentally friendly. We have very professional detailers that work for us.”

Customers at the Florence location will also be able to play a little mini golf while they wait for their car to be serviced, Ekwoge said. The company has set up a mini golf course outside its facility that customers are welcome to play with their entire family.

“We’re always looking to grow,” Ekwoge said. “Clients have some kind of perspective when it comes to my industry. They don’t want to stand there and wait. We were looking for something that would keep a family, the clients, busy. So, mini golf came in that picture. We thought it might be a little bit more family friendly than just sitting in a waiting room and watching television.”

Ekwoge said that the business does have a waiting room with television, though, for those who just want to relax.

“We keep it very clean,” Ekwoge said. “People don’t necessarily have the best thoughts when they think about the lobby of a car wash or anything like that. We keep it very clean and want to make it a place where you feel safe and can relax.”

The Florence location will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the summer. On Sundays, the business will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
