Someone Purchased the Old Carwash in Fairfield

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!

Albertville Tornado Hit my Dad’s Express

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….

Morgan Road Car Wash

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.
