The Car Wash Chemical Price Argument….. I Say chemical companies can make money at a >50% discount! Well I guess it is a fact? LOL 🙂
Let’s face the facts…. chemical companies are making money off you! You might get 10-20% off but who care…. you are really not special. Plus depending on the brand they are hiked up the price even more than others because of their name…. just to mark it down for your discount. 🙂 Plus everyone always argues about my chemical is the best! BLA BLA BLA…. I remember talking to some no name chemical start up guy (backed by a large company)…. he took us out to eat at some fancy place. He said he took the leading chemicals from different manufacturers and flat out got a chemist to copy the chemicals…. they were so pathetic that they even copied 1/2 the names of the chemicals. (They were forced to change the names later.) The thing to ponder here is this…. is this the only unethical chemical vendor? I bet most except Simoniz are all pretty close. Isn’t Simoniz just someone else’s chemical but they add random amounts of water? I AM JUST KIDDING! I have thought that in the past but it is just a joke…. Simoniz does not do that. JOKE! LOL 🙂
So when you purchase a tractor trailer full of chemical you get around this price below…. but I am sure if you purchase lots of trailers full you get a better price. LOL 🙂 Plus this chemical we purchased was really pretty good…. I believe better than average. I would actually prefer this chemical. I also just purchase selfserve chemical…. this was a full line chemical manufacturer.
Tire Cleaner 55 gallon drum $547.71 $273
PreSoak 55 gallon drum $499.70 $249
Triple Foam 30 gallon drum $611.29 $305
Wax 55 gallon drum $696.46 $348
Foam Brush 55 gallon drum $320.89 $160
It is also nice when foam brush cost $160 for 55 gallons…. I remember having 2x 55 gallon drums of foam brush. 🙂 Which is really all water….. also another story! LOL 🙂
These prices were from 2013…. they are old but you get the idea. Plus the suggested price is a suggestion. I went to a sales dinner (another nice restaurant) before and they sell above this number and mark down for volume. Oh no…. Does that mean 10-20% is really not a discount then? JK LOL 🙂
Blendco….. why is Blendco expensive? Why is a mixer cool with an expensive product? Yes I have heard your argument…. yes I have seen numbers and probably talked to more reps than you. This is just something that defies logic. “If person A has a hyper concentrate it is usually cheaper…. If person B uses a powder it is usually cheaper…. If person C uses a hyper concentrate and a powder it is more expensive.” …..Okay logic here should be that the combination would reduce cost. …..But while we are at it and since it is not cleaning that well let’s just try and add some more additive / powder to make it more expensive….. 🙂 Bad joke?
