Does your car need a bath? If so, you will find everything you need at Morrisburg Car Wash on County Road 2, just west of the water treatment plant.
November 12th marked the official opening of Fred and Mattie Zandbergen’s new business.
Fred told those assembled for the event that he and wife Mattie had been thinking of starting this venture for a number of years and, finally, after selling Fred’s Farm Supplies, the time was right.
The Zandbergen’s hired Hosers Car Care for the project. Phil Johnston, site manager from the Belleville Hosers Car Care, was responsible for the project “from the site plan right through to the finished project. The whole bit.”
According to Johnston, who “just joined the company recently,” Hosers Car Care owns five car washes itself, but also deals in repairs, supplies to “entire turn key operations for other car washes.”
The Zandbergen’s car wash has three car bays, two of which are drive through with doors on both sides. There are also two vacuum stations, a change machine, and a vending machine for your convenience.
Each wash costs $3 for four minutes. It is also possible to purchase tokens. Each token gives four minutes of wash time. According to Fred, right now you can purchase tokens at a 20 per cent discount. So, instead of paying $12 for four tokens, you would only pay $10.
He mentioned that they’d make great stocking stuffers for Christmastime.
Fred’s brother, Richard is the manager of the car wash and the one to see if you want to purchase tokens or have questions. The phone number to call is 613-655-3333.
Fred told the Leader that in just two weeks the car wash has made “50 per cent of the targeted proceeds – what you can expect to make once things are running smoothly in like a year from now.”
During speeches at the grand opening, SD&G MP Guy Lauzon told the Zandbergens, “I want to wish you the most success. Thank you for South Dundas. It continues to grow, grow and grow.”
South Dundas Deputy-Mayor Jim Locke said, “all I can do is echo Guy’s words. This is a great addition to the village of Morrisburg.”
