Do you have a system in place to receive, track & return rugs via UPS so as to make it easier for BDCCers like myself to send you rugs to clean/repair at your plant?

With that many vehicles on the road, I'm sure you get your share of bumps, dings and crunched vans. How do you handle it? :cry:


Are the tech responsible for their truck? :shock:

Who inspects them for damage & how frequent?

I'd also like to thank you for answering questions that I have asked you in the past.

I appreciate the time you have given me,
Thanks
Richard
:)

Mike I actually clean my own carpet~ the guys love seeing me do it and are usually happy that I use their truck. If I had to pick someone it would probably be you so I could get a demo of the biggest, meanest system and see how you push a wand.

Well that was the politically correct answer to give Mike, very shrewd.
Thanks for the time you've given here Ken, it was great.

Ken you talked about trying out a glide, you need to clean your own with a glide.

Dry faster or not you'll be amazed at how little fatigue it is compared to a non glided wand.

It will keep your tech's fresh and ready for that additional job you may throw at them.

Our guys love them, I love they are not too tired to handle the occasional water loss that pops up at the end of the day! :wink:

Yes Richard we do- and thanks for checking in to the interview. Every truck is inspected weekly thoroughly and also signed off on each morning (for cleanliness). Our guys are not responsible in a financial sense, but we do not tolerate abuse. We have 3 full time mechanic/maintenance people who do all the repairs and body work. We also have a paint booth and do all our painting in house.

Be nice Jeremy, or I'll send my alter ego with the Harley garb after you :)

I actually love to sing sad sappy love songs~ Josh Groban, Simon & Garfunkel, Kenny Rogers etc.. Just finished my concert series for the year and only 3 more solo gigs booked 1 this Sunday and 2 xmas eve.

Ken, thanks for being here tonight. Personally I appreciate it. Hopefully I'll be successful enough to be "on the hot seat" one day too. The advice & time spent "rubbing elbows" with some of the gurus of the industry is paying dividends, so thanks for spending a little time here. I can't thank you enough for your openness & candor. Have a great night.

Hey Ken, just got in.

5pm THursday here so had to finish my day first. Still got a comm do you so can't hang around. Thanks for this and I'll catch up with the rest when I get in later.

Do you have 'simple' proceedures manuals in the vehicles? Something like a double sided and laminated card dealing with the main areas of expertise they are likely to encounter?

Or just full manuals in the office?

Do they get their own copy?

Cheers, John

Very nice Wise! Thank you for posting that. I was just getting ready to work on some systems that looks really easy for a tech to follow.
