This place is terrible! I went there once to wash my trailer and it is expensive and the equipment is crummy. So I went back today to throw some things away in their trash cans and use the vacuums because it's snowing so I didn't need a wash. A guy with a mustache working on the wash equipment (I'm guessing the owner) started yelling at me asking what I was doing. I told him I was cleaning out my car and he asked if I was going to wash it. I looked at the snow coming down and said "no." He asked why and I said because it was snowing. He said I couldn't use his trash cans unless I washed my car and he stormed away. I couldn't believe it. I was not going to give him my business and pay to vacuum after that. I will never go back there to even throw my trash away to make it look like he's getting business. I'll go 2 blocks away to Firehouse Xpress...cheaper washes and free vacuums and trash cans!
Intimidation at my local car wash!!! – I usually take my car to the Carriage Corner Carwash on Automation Way in Fort Collins, for vacuuming and cleaning since I work right down the street. Heading out of town, and wanted to clean the trash out of my car before I left, so I pulled in next to the vacuum and started cleaning out my trash - I'm talkin' a couple receipts, a Starbucks cup, it took me one minute. I noticed that two men were watching me do this from one of the bays - and it was very uncomfortable and creepy the way they were looking at me. When I got in my car to leave, one of the guys slowly walked in front of my car, hands in his pocket, staring at me and deliberately blocked me from leaving the parking lot - I tried to drive around him, but he kept so close to my car that I would have hit him! I almost started to call 911. He came up to my window - "we expect you to use the vacuums if you are putting trash in the trash cans." WOW! I shouldn't have responded, but said “I normally do, but don't have time this morning, but I will gladly take my business elsewhere.” Super scary the way he blocked my car and wouldn’t let me drive by. Won't ever go there again - just on the intimidating creepiness factor!!!!!!! It is just a trash can right?
