SONNY'S PromiseFor new investors in the car wash business, for current SONNY'S customers, and for operators using competitive equipment and vendors, the SONNY'S advantage is equally important.SONNY'S offers each group of our clients 3 distinct advantages that are focused on their success.
Those 3 things set SONNY'S apart, and help make us the clear choice for Car Wash operators.
1. WE REALLY ARE #1
Have you noticed that everyone claims to be "the best" or "Number 1" or "the Leader"? Thanks to our loyal following, SONNY'S actually is by far the largest seller of conveyorized equipment, parts and supplies in the world. At over $60 million in sales a year to this market, no one else comes close! An independent study in 2008 confirmed that SONNY'S has 28% market share here in the United States — twice that of our closest competitor and 3 to 10 times the sales of the others. Year after year we are verified as by far the largest in this niche. So if you want to buy what the market says is the best, you found it with SONNY'S.

2. OUTSTANDING SERVICE AND SUPPORT
When it comes to personal care and after sale support, you won't find a better choice. Just ask our customers. We believe so strongly in our commitment to customer assistance, that our personal cell phone numbers are listed on this web site under 'Service and Support'. We are the only manufacturer to also have a 650 page parts catalog to give you the ability to have one stop shopping. Our catalog and parts supply business is another way we maintain a relationship with our clients after the equipment sale. We work hard at keeping clients for life! We have 11 experienced car wash operators on staff full time to help you with issues. The Equipment division for equipment, installation and technical support, Catalog division for parts and supplies assistance, and the CarWash College for training; three of the main pieces we have internally to support you and help you be successful. Add that to our national Select Service Organizations, partners that are local to you and represent SONNY'S in field sales, installation & support, and you have a team that can’t be beat.

3. INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE
Sonny and his family have been washing cars on conveyors since 1949. No other manufacturer has that experience. With over 60 years of industry operational experience and 31 years of manufacturing under its belt, SONNY'S has built a reputation as a knowledgeable long-term player in the industry. We will build or re-equip well over 150 locations this year alone. We created the CarWash College as a concrete way to share some of that experience with operators to help ensure their success. Let us share some of this experience with you.

4. SUPER-COMPETITIVE PRICING
Looking for the best value? We're the only company that sells directly to you and publishes our equipment prices. We manufacture our own equipment here at our factory and use our award winning highly efficient production facility to offer you the best savings. And yet, we never sacrifice quality. Take the online factory tour to see for yourself just how efficient and advanced our factory is and why we have been recognized twice for our outstanding performance from the South Florida Manufacturers Association. While others may price their equipment high and then discount to you once they know they are quoting against SONNY'S, we give you the right price from the beginning — pricing we believe is so reasonable that we publish it.

And as we improve our equipment designs, we do our best to make sure the upgrade can be easily retrofitted to our previous models so you can upgrade what you have bringing your machine to the most current version rather than buying a whole new unit.
