Well it is really not funny. The property got auctioned off by soldalabama.com for around $30,000. With 20% going to the auction house. Pretty sad but with so many carwashes it would really be stupid reopening it.
I really liked this carwash and I have posted pictures in the past. I even called the owner of the wash and he actually talked me out of it, which is interesting. The Fairfield wash location always looked like a good safe location. But I drove by today and it looks like someone might have been killed in the yard of the abandoned house behind the wash? Or maybe not? I’m not going to start any rumors!
Do you have $7,900,000? If so, you can buy a Full Service Hand Car Wash + Oil Change. It is obviously on a major busy commercial Street. Check out the website it was interesting: carwash777.com
7601 , 7615 Reseda Blvd, Reseda, CA 91335
I really like the name of this carwash. DUCK in Car Wash (215 Aerenson Dr, Milford, DE 19963) but unfortunately no website yet. Yes it is really a carwash; it is a full service carwash.
UPDATE: My Dad ended up rebuilding the wash and told me he reused all the tunnel equipment. So it was not a total loss. He only had to replace the outside equipment that was stolen or destroyed (blew away). Also the low pressure pumping system was supposedly a loss? He replaced it with a Hydroflex. I am not sure what the insurance claim was or the official damage…. but I believe theinsurancenter.com is a good provider if you need insurance. 🙂 This is just what I was told multiple times! I honestly do not care…. and if I hear this story again from my Dad! LOL 🙂
A side note…. Entry units at expresses: I never understood why he never used an entry unit at this location. He actually sold the entry units back to the manufacturer long before the tornado. We would debate this topic every time he complained about customers. LOL 🙂 The manager at the location I believe did not like the entry unit idea for some reason? This also caused major conflict not having an entry system. Nice guy though….

I drove by the Morgan Road Car Wash today. Greg purchased it a couple days ago. They have put in another automatic and gone up on there self-serve prices from $2.00 to $2.50! So since December 10th, 2005 they have only gone up $.50….. inflation definately has not hit the self-serve market!
If you are interested, the wash has 2 Jim Coleman Water Wizards: 1 is the original while the other is a new 2.0 non-profiling. It has 2 Hamilton entry units and also a Jim Coleman Space Saver pumping unit for the self-serve bays.

Do you want to have a web presence for your self serve carwash? No? Neither do I. But this website would be a good example if you did! Check it out at: http://bubblesgalorecarwash.com/

This carwash has the same self serve equipment that my Hueytown carwash used to have (Clean Concepts). His equipment had a sticker for Magriff Inc of Birmingham Alabama 205-879-7234 on the self serve equipment. The phone number now is someones personal number.
