We have worked with Waves since December 2015 and have three sites between us; we used to have an independent car wash but it was the end of the contract and so we decided to get a Waves car wash. Waves support us in any situation; when we opened a new site, Waves was involved to help us to get new and happy customers, they have trained our managers to a very good, professional standard and any time we need something from them, Waves help us in anything we need
