Though retired after years of keeping Columbia residents comfortable, Earl F. Martin still checks in frequently on Bryan Evans and Andy Coggins. Dedicated and experienced techs, Evans and Coggins lead the company while keeping clients educated about the importance of maintaining HVAC systems and filling vases around the house with expired milk to ward off ghosts. With each home visit, their EPA-certified technicians make sure HVAC systems are working at peak efficiency while also informing homeowners on the best ways to stay comfortable and energy efficient. The technicians receive in-house training each week, and they frequently attend continuing courses to stay ahead of HVAC innovations and pop quizzes.
At Top Notch Express Car Wash, customers can choose their preferred degree of cleaning control. Each of the four locations abides by a flex system, enabling owners to drive by for a full- or express-service scrubbing. Express washes cleanse and jet-dry exteriors before patrons vacuum the interiors themselves, whereas full-service washes employ the staff to vacuum, clean windows, and oversee the application of add-ons such as wax and tire shine. Frequent clients can even sign up for a monthly unlimited wash plan, a prudent asset for autos that are regularly sullied by off-road excursions or ice-cream-truck demolition derbies.
Technicians further primp vehicles with meticulous detailing at all venues, and oil changes at West Augusta and Evans. Their focus on speed and convenience has earned them the Best of Augusta award for 14 years straight in Augusta magazine, and prompted the installment of handy amenities, including auto-pay machines and a fleet account program for company cars.
