Just want to shoot you a note and say thanks. The “4 Horsemen” you sent down here are kicking ass and are moving along pretty quickly. They are doing good quality work and working smart and efficient. I know you and Rick are behind this so thank you.

Lastly, thanks for working with us on the conveyor issue. Much appreciated. It’s a big deal for us. Yet another reason why we are continuing to work together. Looking forward to this next tunnel order I plan placing later this year.

I wanted to reach out and express my thoughts about my experience with Howco, specifically your Service

I’ve been in the car wash business for over ten years in the New York/Long Island area. I’ve owned and operated 7 car washes. I’ve sold my operations in New York, and purchased my first wash in Pennsylvania and decided to move my operations back to the Philadelphia area. The location I purchased, Velo Wash in the Andorra shopping center, was in complete disrepair and I planned on a complete gut renovation of the tunnel. I was fortunate enough to be referred to Rick Leroy, by Kevin Mast, my longtime chemical provider and friend. Rick, and your planning team, put together a concise and professional plan like I have not seen from other equipment providers. We were ready to go, and unfortunately, due to unforeseen landlord circumstances, we had to delay our renovation. Rick then brought in Brian and your service team.

I didn’t think that there was any way we could possibly get up and running with the condition the equipment and tunnel were in. However, Brian came up with a plan after his assessment and got to work. We ordered some parts and Brian came with Nate and got started. Over the course of four to five weeks, Brian, Nate, and Jon got my tunnel up and running. I’m happy to say that we are putting out very clean cars, and hopefully will be able to run this old raggedy equipment until I get the OK from my landlord to do our full renovation.

I’ve dealt with many car wash equipment sales teams and many car wash repair companies over my years of experience. I can honestly say that I have never dealt with a team like what you have put together at Howco. I count Rick as a friend at this point, and he is one of the most honest, understanding, and patient people I’ve dealt with in the industry. This may sound crazy, but I look forward to writing Howco a very large check for my equipment and install, and handing it to Rick when my landlord gives me the OK.

Regarding your service team: I HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE COMPETENT, THOROUGH, HONEST, KNOWLEDGABLE, AND HARD WORKING GROUP OF PEOPLE IN THE CAR WASH INDUSTRY. I don’t know what else I can say. Brian, Nate, and Jon are nothing short of amazing to work with. They have continually gone above and beyond my expectations. There is nothing I’ve thrown at them that they can’t accomplish. I have complete trust in them and plan on purchasing a service contract as soon as my new equipment is installed. I also recently signed an agreement of sale to purchase another location in South Jersey, and I’ve already told Brian that I will be using him for service there. I’ve had the most experience with Brian, and I’m thrilled to have him as a part of my team.

I look forward to a long relationship with Howco and your entire team. All of the people I mentioned are an asset to your company. Thank you for the people you have on your team at Howco, and for running the business the way you do. Please feel free to share this with all of those mentioned in this email.

It's been a wonderful experience working with Howco. Our tunnel addition has been smooth and painless, and I would absolutely work with Howco again.

Marilyn Danis, North Pointe Auto Bath, Fayetteville, NC

Howco held our hands and helped guide us through a rough period. I remembered how knowledgeable and patient they were when we were a fledgling operation, so when it came time to renovate, I called them. Howco is a "class A" operation. They are honest and reliable, the equipment is excellent, and we'll use them again for our next wash.

Charlie Abed, Blue Wave Express, Charlotte, NC

I'm very happy with the results. I knew of the company's reputation and experience, and Howco helped me make the right decisions about every aspect of the remodel. Everyone at Howco was knowledgeable, ethical, and very helpful, and I'd recommend them to anyone.

David Cottrell, Dave’s Auto Spa, Richmond, VA

We used Howco to develop our first car wash eight years ago; we used them for this beautiful new wash conversion; and we'll use them for our next one. We are excited about the quality of the car wash equipment and our relationship with Howco. They did an outstanding job, and our business is growing every month.

Dr. Chris Chittum, Whatta Wash, Spartanburg, SC

I started researching car wash builders, equipment, technology, chemicals, and service...and Howco and Hanna equipment kept showing up prominently in our due diligence process. I can't say enough about the service and attention to detail provided by Howco. They went above and beyond the call of duty, and we've got a beautiful, brand new car wash that is growing weekly businesswise.

George Clark- Blue Skies Car Wash Powell, TN

Your representatives went out of their way to ensure that I was quickly taken care of so that I didn't lose any more business. They drove from Charlotte, NC, to our location in Powell, TN, and worked past 8:00 the first evening and were back first thing the next morning to finish. I appreciate the help and support of your organization, and thank you for the high level of customer service. When I purchase car wash machinery in the future, it will be from Howco, Inc.

Ken Orndorff-Clean Ride Express Concord, NC

I wanted to let you know how satisfied I've been with Howco's installation of my new wash. Frank Donaldson, Steven Poarch, JR, Danny McRorie, and David Bergstrom have been extremely diligent in working with all the components. Your team has been an invaluable resource in making this project a reality. I look forward to continuing to work with them on this wash and hopefully others in the future.

Ed McIntosh-President Village Carwash, Greer, SC

Howco's mission statement and principles come through loud and clear with tangible results. I had a problem for over a year that the manufacturer could not resolve. Thanks to the efforts of David Wallace, Frank Donaldson and Steven Poarch, the problem was brought to a successful conclusion. I appreciate all the things Howco has done for me and will promote your company at every opportunity.
