About Us 

Glass House Car Wash in Independence, Missouri, has more than 30 years of combined experience in the car wash industry. Our top-of-the-line facility features two automatic bays that use AUTEC EV-1 car wash systems working side-by-side. AUTEC systems deliver a clean so thorough, the minimal wait in line is well worth the end results. We choose AUTEC systems not only for the superior wash they provide, but also for their quick customer service. This ensures that if one of our machines goes down, it doesn't stay down for long; meaning you can always count on our car wash to be up-and-running when you need it, 24 hours a day.

Car Wash


Our company is owned-and-operated by Cary Grieb and his son, Kenton Grieb. Back in 2004, Cary contacted AUTEC about opening a car wash on Merriam Lane in Kansas City, where he owned property. At the time, the popular car business model was an automatic system with several self-service bays. AUTEC supplied the EV-1 automatic car wash for our first site, staying in touch with Cary and providing their exceptional technical support to give help and answers for a smooth day-to-day operation. Over the years, AUTEC evolved their business model into an AUTEC InBay Express system that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without the need of attendants.

AUTEC InBay Express

By 2015, Cary and Kenton had converted their old location into AUTEC's fully automated system and opened a brand new location in Independence, Missouri. Both facilities feature AUTEC InBay Express machines with AUTEC's new, hip glass-roof structure, allowing the Griebs to experience unprecedented success in their first winter of operation.

A Word From the Founder

Cary Grieb, owner of Glass House Car Wash, puts it best when he says, "One of the main reasons that we decided to do an AUTEC InBay Express again was our experience with our customers over the past 10 years since the installation of our first AUTEC. We have customers who drive 10-plus miles and who will wait in line for 45 minutes for our car wash. When we ask them why, they say 'Your car wash gets your car clean. It's that simple.'
AUTEC is leading the list of businesses that are top-shelf, top-quality-type businesses. We like doing business with people like that, who are professional and can take care of our needs."
