    Electric cars

    I want to be clear that I'm not against electric cars and do find them somewhat interesting. What bothers me is our governments' push of the farce idea that they are overall more environmentally friendly than gas or diesel burners. Also it is very likely you are supporting slavery (mining of...

    CryptoPay Chargebacks (Capital One)

    They told me that the name change is done by Worldpay. John at Cryptopay said that they can put in a ticket for the change but Worldpay will have to contact me anyway so I might as well just call them. I'm going to see how this goes and raise the pre auth later if we need to. Slash do you ever...

    Why do you stay here?

    You might find demand in that niche market. 😂

    CryptoPay Chargebacks (Capital One)

    Just got another chargeback and this time the ticket was for $17.25 and the chargeback was for $14.25. It was only two weeks ago so I pulled up the video footage and saw that the person did not push the swiper button to stop the bay when done washing in a self serve bay. After seeing that I...

    It was the Japanese not the Germans.

    Why do you stay here?

    That makes me want to go meet and talk to more of my competitors. We are in a club that nobody on the outside can understand what we deal with. Most people are amazed when I tell them the things that go on at our car wash and ours is not too bad compared to some of the stories I read here. (and...

    Electric cars

    Did they make buying horses illegal before the gas car was perfected?

    Electric cars

    Looks like you guys might find out this week with Ian and having about 95,000 EVs in the state and large gaps between charging stations. Hopefully those EV owners have friends with gas cars that they can hitch a ride with.

    Vacuums

    Some people think the word "cheaper" is synonymous with cutting corners with low quality but it's obvious in this context it wasn't. I use it sometimes and people correct me. Saving money like that can likely get you ahead in this industry as long as the time spent is worth it. I don't see how...

    Rural king beats most other store's prices on just about anything they carry. We have one nearby.

    Corporate Express Exteriors are OUT of Their Ever Loving Minds!

    Express Wash Concepts claims they are operating 67 locations and employ 950 people. I'm sure there's a lot of overhead office people in an organization of that size but that still seems like a lot of people for 67 locations. Yes I know many of them are part time but if you do the math the...

    Vacuums

    The best suction vac we have is a JE Adams 29060 combo. (shampoo, fragrance and turbo) I can't remember what motors are in it but even in two motor mode it makes our other vac's suction a little embarrassing. One thing I did to it was put a vacuum check valve under the turbo motor. One thing I...

    Corporate Express Exteriors are OUT of Their Ever Loving Minds!

    I think most of the ones being built now are late to the party. The pie slices are just getting thinner and thinner.

    Corporate Express Exteriors are OUT of Their Ever Loving Minds!

    I knew Flying Ace partnered with Moo Moo a while back but the other day I was looking at their website and saw this: Today, Flying Ace Express Car Wash operates under the parent company of Express Wash Concepts, which includes Central Ohio-based Moo Moo Express Car Wash, Greater Cleveland and...

    Corporate Express Exteriors are OUT of Their Ever Loving Minds!

    Why do these companies always have goals of how many locations they will build but not talk about profit or even sales? Who cares if they have 100 locations if they are all in the red. Speaking of that several years ago I heard of a chain that something like 12 of the 15 locations were in the...

    Corporate Express Exteriors are OUT of Their Ever Loving Minds!

    Ultimate Shine out of Tennessee. Then there's a Take 5 going in right across from that in one town. (There's already a Goo Goo in town) In another tiny town a Blue Hippo will be going in on the other end of town from the Ultimate Shine. Then in another smallish low income dying town there's a...

    Corporate Express Exteriors are OUT of Their Ever Loving Minds!

    There's now one coming to town and of course the city bent the rules for them. After finding this out I wanted to do some research on why they are choosing to build here in this half baked location. 6,000 ADT on the access road (land locked and need permission from neighbor for access) but will...

    Electric cars

    I don't think they are that dumb. It just looks like it because they are doing things that to most people seem stupid. They know exactly what they are doing. What they are is evil. There. I said it. Now I'm on another list.

    CryptoPay Chargebacks (Capital One)

    Default is $10. Did you change it to $14 when you initially installed the system?

    CryptoPay Chargebacks (Capital One)

    That's interesting and we do have only a $2 pre auth. Actually now that I think about it our charge backs started about the time we dropped it down.
