    Small town wash profits???

    You're making a mistake assuming you can just throw big, round numbers at it like that. You said yourself that the auto has no soap and no functioning brushes. Who would use a wash like that? You also said 2 of your SS bays have no booms. So only 4 SS bays are used. A wash like that would...

    Turning complainers into loyal customers

    Yes that's really nice when it works and I agree that's a good way to handle complaints. There are some customers who just want to complain and they bug me because no matter what I offer it's not good enough. And there are the ones who take you to court over damages that they claim my wash did...

    Would you build/invest right now?

    I'm not sure the CAP rate but you can find it here on this forum. For due diligence, I would read this forum and ask alot of questions. Get 3 years tax returns. Water bills. Stake the places out on dry days, weekday and weekend. Count cars.

    Kleen Rite

    I've been growing increasingly frustrated with Kleen Rite since March. I have had to find alternate suppliers for car wash and detail supplies due to a lack of availability of simple things like foam polish for my car wash and vinyl dressing for my detail shop. Another bothersome situation is...

    Quality steam cleaner that doesn’t break that bank

    I don't think you'll find a good quality steamer for less than 1000. I bought the mighty steamer and it was unimpressed. The steam ran out frequently and I had to replace the steam pot three times. The company finally replaced it with a newer version of the same machine for a small fee. This one...
