THIRD TIME'S THE CHARM

Published on 9/13/2016

Turner Brock, a real estate broker and Coldwell Banker franchisee for over 20 years, recently opened his third AUTEC Car Wash. Turner and his brother, Mack, also are general contractors, developers and managers of multiple rental properties, so their fingers are on the pulse of the business climate in southern Georgia and southern Alabama.

Turner and Mack have also been in the carwash business for close to 25 years. Cairo, Georgia was their first AUTEC installation where they took out an aging touch free wash and installed an AES-425, AUTEC’s friction workhorse. “We did an identical retrofit in Dothan, AL, at a self-serve site with a touch free automatic with similar results. Tom Hobby, AUTEC’s president, tried to convince me to tear down the touch free and self-serve at the Dothan site and build a new, free-standing site from the ground up,” Turner commented. “Our latest AUTEC installation is a new free-standing express wash without self-serve.

Now with the success of this site, FINISH LINE EXPRESS in Bainbridge, GA, I’ve concluded that Tom was right. The new, stand-alone site is doing at least 100% more business than the AUTEC remodels (self-serve and soft touch revenue combined). The AUTEC equipment models are identical for all three locations; however, the street presence of the new site is magnetic.  The building is open, airy, well-lit and inviting.  

The cleaning performance and throughput are far superior to any touch free units in the market and our operating costs are less.

I came to AUTEC via my next-door neighbor who had been in an accident and during his recovery, he researched the automatic car wash business.  He shared with me the information he discovered about AUTEC as well as other manufacturers. I felt like AUTEC was a perfect match for me.  The quality and capability of the equipment and the knowledgeability and professionalism of the staff made it easy for me to determine that AUTEC was something I wanted to be a part of.

I’m planning another remodel site in Dothan and I can assure you, it will be a tear down/start over location.

The AUTEC equipment is very reliable.  We handle basic service and preventative maintenance ourselves.  We can always contact our AUTEC-certified distributor or AUTEC’s technical support line if something more complicated pops up.

The car wash community, as a whole, needed an uplift in our area,” Turner continued. “There are three or four wand wash locations, one c-store with a friction wash, and two touch free washes in addition to ours.  The newest wash was close to ten years old, so there was definitely a need for some positive changes. Words from my customers are: ‘there was a great need’, ‘the site is so well-lit’, ‘the wash does a really good job’.

I have had ZERO complaints about pricing. We are totally pleased with the average ticket  price per wash and with the reception we have  received from our community.” 


Author, Maryrose Wood wrote, "If both of your shoes are shined, then your best foot will always be forward."

And in a February 21, 2016 article in The Wall Street Journal, Ray A. Smith wrote "Dress better, work better?  A number of recent studies suggest that dressing up for work in a suit or blazer could do wonders for an employee’s productivity, whether going into a negotiation, making a sales call or even participating in a video-conference with business associates."

So we've heard for years and obviously from these current sources that you can tell much about a person by looking at their shoes.  We contend that looking at the wheels and tires of someone's automobile sends a similar message.

Dingy shoes, dingy tires . . . bad impression.

When a car’s tires and wheels are clean, it does more than just enhance its looks. It also protects the tires from weathering and cracking and removes corrosion and protects the wheel’s finish from the elements.  Car care professionals say that keeping wheels and tires clean is an important part of vehicle maintenance. They recommend that car owners clean their wheels at least every other time they wash the car, or every two weeks.

AUTEC’s Chemical Tire Application coupled with our High Pressure Tire & Wheel Blaster provide just what your customers need to keep their tires and wheels looking great and to provide them the tools to help prolong the life of their investment.  Once clean, you can also offer your customers the opportunity to apply tire dressing with AUTEC’s Super Tire Shine.

AUTEC's Tire Shine feature is a fully automated tire dressing applicator designed for any AUTEC Car Wash System .  Tire Shine features AUTEC's exclusive all-stainless-steel construction along with spring loaded swing arms to prevent damage to and from wayward vehicles.

Between the two of us, we can ensure that your customer always has his best foot forward.  Click on the logo below to see our TireShine brochure.
