ICS December Vehicle of the Month

Name: Dan Lloyd
Company Name: Red Wagon Cleaning Service, Inc
Address: PO Box 36
City: Columbus
State: North Carolina
ZIP: 28722
Phone: (828) 894-0120
Vehicle Make/Model/Year: 2003 Chevrolet 3500 one-ton van

Equipment (truckmounts, portables, chemicals, etc):
This is a 2003 Van with a 2004 Cleanco Compact 47 with 150-gallon waste tank installed by Charles Reed in Conover, NC. We use the RX-20 with the HE head on most residential and some commercial carpet and use the wand with a Teflon glide on everything else. The Drimaster upholstery tool is ready to be used when needed. You can see my Spraymaster in-line sprayers hanging in the truck. Our business is about half window cleaning, so that explains the ladders on the van!

What makes your vehicle stand out from the competition?
Our vehicle stands out from the competition because it has my company name and logo on it! I started the business pulling a little red trailer behind my 1981 Toyota Corolla, thus the name "Red Wagon." Some of our customers still remember the original "Red Wagon" before we had a van. Now the "Red Wagon" is on the side of our white van. Our customers say they see our truck everywhere!
