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. ūüôā 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 ūüôā

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 ūüôā 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….

Albertville Express Wash: Tommy / AVW stainless setup

They got all their chemical and hydraulic lines run in stainless.  Super rad!

They also have the largest wall attached light I have seen (1000 watts).  My favorate feature of the wash is the shower.  Just think: when someone opens a car wash next door you can move into the wash and live.
