I took my daughters car in to have the exterior detailed after she grazed a pole and her dad tried to remove the white marks with a scrubbing pad leaving awful marks down the side of her car. Florida Car Wash was able to remove all

I was asked by a mutual friend of mine and the owner Marty of Florida car wash if i would take over the detail department.I am a professional detailer i have 15 yrs experience under my belt i have worked for Ferrari of Central Florida,Reeves Import Motorcars,Lazzara Yachts,and my own company i decided to take a look into the problems that they are having and came across this web page i was told that the business was having trouble but with all the comments i have read i know it is more then just a little trouble is totally unacceptable. managers yelling and screaming at employees to go faster at the expense of the customer missing way to much crap then ignoring the customers complaints being totally disrespectful and mouthing off to a customer .possibly stealing from the hard working employees totally unacceptable . if there is any one on here that has worked for them and have seen this first hand i need to speak to you.i need to know what I'm getting into

I want to commend Florida Car Wash on the Wonderful work they do. My car is Seven years old and it looks like I justed pulled it off the showroom floor. With the economy the way it is, I've been pitting off buying a new car as it runs

If I could give them negative rating I would. Have been taking 6 cars there since they opened. Spent $100 on a detail. Windows were left dirty, dog hair they said could not be removed, funny I removed it with a lint brush!!!! And the female manager needs to take some classes in customer service. she obviously needs help on how to deal with customers. Remember that saying "The customer is always right!!!"I own a company with several employees if she was my employee I would have fired her on the spot for the way she spoke to me. The manager John should have asked her to leave and he handle the problem that we had. And not letting me know who owned the business so I could contact them was another strike against them.

What a disapointment! Oily film on the inside of my windshield & other windows, visible dirt on doors, hood, everywhere on Yukon. Then it took me 1.2 hours trying to get the dirt off, clean windows and I can not get the oily stuff from the tires off where it splashed on the sides and my running boards look pok-a-dot. I have been going there since they opened, probably 18-20 years but not ever again. $29 shot, the drive through does a better job without being wiped down!

I swear that my niece and nephew could have done a much better job than this place did on my truck! Since when do the windows not get cleaned? Since when does it cost extra for the truck to be dried? Vacuumed, yeah that's another joke! Been going there for 6 years! Always bought the wash, wheels and interior including windows. Today was the last straw! Hit and miss on the vacuum, dashboard not wiped down, window cleaner was sat on the back bumper and not touched, 1 truck door was opened (4 door) door frames not touched, tape left on the rear view mirror! The body of my truck was a hit and miss on them even drying it! I sat there and watched as it sat for 3 minutes before being touched, watched as 1 person started drying and then overheard the so called manager tell an employee "we are backed up let's go". So my money isn't good enough for you huh? Well I shall find another place to pay for much better service! Best car wash in Brandon my backside!!

I visit your car wash a few times out of the week and am very pleased with the service I get. The staff are very curtious and take their time to examine my car before I leave. They always do a wonderful job.

Last month I took my BMW in and had it detailed and hand waxed a young man named Robert brought my car out and presented it to me he said he was sorry if It took a little longer than the 30 minutes he was aloud but that he wanted to make sure it was done right. I inspected my car and was so pleased that I tipped him $20 I'm not sure if there aloud to take tips but I wanted him to have it anyway. I took my car back this week asking that Robert detail it again and was informed that he no longer worked there,Well what a shame because the Yong man that detailed my car this time I think his name was Stan was finished sooner but did not do a very good job at all.I was not impressed or happy. I'll not be returning to Florida car wash

I will never go there again!!!!
I pulled up and before I could finish talking to the sales lady a Spanish looking kid opened the passenger side front door and began to vacuum that side. I immediately recognized the smell of booze on him,As I was getting my 4 year old daughter out of her car seat I heard a man yelling out profanities I turned around and saw a man who I found out later is the owner yelling at a female employee to the point that she was crying her eyes out. I thought Wow mister if that was my kid my husband would be mopping the floor with your face about now. The alcoholic was bad enough but to see and hear that unprofessional and seemingly unstable man screaming and swearing at that poor girl well that did it for me
I will never go back there again!!!

Unbelievable lack of service and or professionalism
I brought my car in for a wash and vacuum. when I got it back it still had bugs all over the front and I don't think it was even vacuumed at all the only thing that was cleaned out was my cup full of toll booth quarters,go figure. I voiced my complaint to the owner who just turned and walked away ranting aloud like a drunken bum talking to himself.I got so mad I pulled the car back around and vacuumed it myself. No one even tried to help or apologize. I should have went to a self serve as I had to do it myself anyway. I would'nt go back there if it was free!

Personally I believe the woman's story simply because I know for a fact that a manager was fired a short while back when he was accused of sexual harassment by more than one young lady working there and there were other complaints by customers as well
Further more you evidently know nothing of how completely unprofessional this company is run I know first hand they charge an arm and a leg for detail work and then they put the employ on a time limit . Ok lets say you just payed $79. for a super clean that's thoroughly cleaning the scuffs dirt-n-grim and gum and soda or what ever you spill in yr car clean out all yr stuff and bag it 4 you shampoo yr Matt's vacuum inside trunk and all silicone the wheels polish the tires the employ gets 30 minutes to do all that no matter how bad yr car is they still get only 30 minutes and at $7.25 an hour that person makes less than $4 for busting there butt to make the owners rich and being yelled at, belittled and treated subhuman to boot ! One more thing the tip box up front don't put your money in there if you really want it to go to a specific person because the christian professional owner and family get 99% of that money they even tell the employees that if you don't get it done on time you don't get any tips this week and they with keep it for themselves. So unless you have had the misfortune of working for Marty and his hide behind there fake religion family or even worse have a child who is getting made to feel as if he or she is worthless and can't be treated well by an employer you should heed the warnings of those who know the truth
If they will steal from the kids who make them all there money they will steal from you in poor services FOR YOUR HARD EARNED CASH
AND THERE IS NO SLANDER IN THIS REPORT ONLY FACTS!!!

HEY MARY M., DID YOUR DAUGHTER TELL HIM SHE WAS ONLY 14? OR ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE FOLKS WHO DRESS THEIR LITTLE ANGEL LIKE A 23 YR. OLD COCKTAIL WAITRESS AND BLAME SOCIETY WHEN THEY COME HOME PREGNANT? FL CAR WASH IS RESPONSIBLY OWNED BUT CAN'T CONTROL ALL WORKERS ALL THE TIME. I'LL BET THERE ARE MORE DETAILS TO THIS SLANDEROUS STORY THAN WE'VE HEARED SO FAR.

If he was the best manager why would a person possibly in his mid thirties be flirting with a child . If She would have told me on the premisis I sure would have made a scene and possibly called the police. He (and you) should feel lucky that I posted here instead or the outcome would have revealed that your car wash is just another carwash with scumbags working , managing , and owning. My only question is I wish I knew his name to look it up on the sex offenders list

I paid $99 for a full detail on my car. There was little effort to remove the insects on front bumper, wheels were left dirty, a soft drink had splattered on a door frame and it was completely missed. But, what really soured me about the service was the fact that a very nice umbrella was stolen from me. I'd already decided to avoid them for future mediocre service, but after talking to two supervisers about just the umbrella issue, I was told that the umbrella was never in the car in the first place. The last thing I did before dropping my car off was to place everything in a basket in the trunk. The umbrella that was in the back pocket of the driver's seat was one of those things. Someone stole it and apparently everyone that works there condones theft.

To Mary M what you wrote about Florida Car Wash is simply NOT TRUE! Its a shame you would go to such an extreme to put this buisness down by writing lies on a public page ...if you hadn't notices Florida Car Wash was voted #1 car wash in Brandon 3 years in a row! Also tho oldest and friendliest :) ...Another thing if your 14 years old daughter was getting hit on by the manager you should have told someone not come on a review site and disrespect the manager like that he's the one that takes the time to check out your car to make sure its clean and to your satisfaction! He's actually the best manager Florida Car Wash has ever had and its a shame there are people like you in this world! Im sure Florida Car Wash does not need you buisness being the #1 car wash in Brandon! ...& dont you forget that :)

There is no slander in your report. Its right on the money.
Martin Phelps is one nasty MF indeed. I wish the people at Bell shoals church new how nasty and unchristian he really is. Searching records on the internet shows while he does make money on the backs of teens, drunks, and mexicans I have personally observed him break many labor laws and if his carwash hurts your car.....well its game over.he is not a good buisnessman He has had to refinance the carwash using his house as collateral so many times that he is whoafully indebt. With his bouts of skin cancer and bad back and possibly unfaithfull wife I can see why he is so mean. He had screwed so many people that Im suprised that someone hasnt confronted him on the street. . He is well known in the carwash culture as a ruthless ,nasty head case and Your a sad case Martin as well as that pedophile manager Javier Ruiz that has herpes on his lips. Your superficial son spends all his money on evo's and sti's when he should be trying to get a education with his dumb self. and all these people who have offered thier opinion on this carwash are all on the same page and should be taken seriously. When you spend money there you are condoning his treating his employees like dogs.
You will go to hades martin when you die
Bell shoals church cant help you.

We took our car there to have it fully serviced. What a disappointment this was. The front of the car was not cleaned. There are streaks on the inside the windshield (my 4year old would have done it better). The inside doors still had the smudges on. It seems like they held the vacuum inside but didn't used it to clean the upholstery or the flooring with it. For the price we paid and what we got it was a waste of our time and money. We attempted to have the major issues corrected, but where unsuccessful. We definitely will not go back there again. We cannot recommend this Car wash to anyone.

I have taken my car in several times to be washed and cleaned. They do a good job but have to inspect it after to make sure everything was done correctly. Once they did not vacuum the back seat and another time the wheels were still dirty, but they were notified, the situations were resolved.
