This interview was way different than any other interview we’ve ever had. We met with David from Power Train West York, and damn were we blown away. Their gym is unlike any other gym I’ve personally ever been to. They’ve got 20 locations (yes it’s a franchise) and started out about 15 years ago in Lancaster, PA. They work with anyone from pro athletes and youth athletes, to grandmas and grandpas. There's a place and program for everyone.
Their business model isn’t your typical “free pizza on tuesday” come and use our machines type of gym. Whenever you’re at one of their facilities you’re working with one of their coaches. Now I’ve never had a personal trainer before and have had countless gym memberships that I rarely used. The quality of the workout was 10x better than I’ve ever had before. We had a brief discussion about goals and then got to work. This showed me in the first 5 minutes that they actually care about your success in their facilities.
Their plans are extremely affordable (way cheaper than a personal trainer at most franchise gyms) and there are plenty of options for your workouts. There are basically 3 categories for their workouts: personal training, speed and agility, and boot camp. Personal training is your one on one training sessions while speed and agility is geared towards athlete’s and their performance. Boot camps are their group classes that are fast paced and packed with workouts, quite a bit different than your machine swapping classes at the majority of gyms. I know that I’ll be getting a membership here. If you’re not sold give your local Power Train a call and get a free workout. Oh and here’s there website too: http://www.powertrainsports.com/
After a brief conversation with Jeff from Unlimited Towing, it was very clear that he enjoys what he does. It’s always refreshing to see thriving small businesses with owners that actually work and enjoy what they do. Jeff’s been towing for as long as he can remember, since his father started towing in the 70’s he was born into it. Jeff’s been in business as Unlimited Towing since 2010 now and is still family owned and operated.
Whenever you need a tow in York, Harrisburg, Lancaster, and beyond Jeff will be available anywhere you need help, 24/7. Although they’ll go a long range although they operate in the East York/Red Lion/Dallastown area of York county. Doesn’t matter if you need a jump start, tow, tire change, winched out of a ditch, or you’ve locked yourself out… Unlimited towing is a call away, and we respect their ability to keep up with demand with such a small crew.
Since they’re family run you can believe their prices are a little lower than the majority of competitors in the area AND you’ll receive better service. Not too often do you get served by the owner of the business. We’ve found that people who actually work in their business deliver far superior care when handling their products or rendering their services. Save their number in your phone, you’ll be glad you have it next time you need some help. View their site here: http://www.unlimitedtowingyork.com/
This past week we had the pleasure of talking with Jordan, let me just say that this man is a rare breed. Taking the time to meet with you himself for estimates, and even rendering his services on your home himself. We’re quickly realizing that most of the people we interview don’t think to dedicate that much care towards their customers. Believe it or not we interview a LOT of people and only a handful ever make it to the site.
Harrisburg, Lancaster, York, Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, Palmyra… Really anywhere around (up to) an hour away from Palmyra and Jordan will come out for an estimate. From sidewalks, roofs, decks, patios, and anything else on the exterior of your home our man Jordan will be out to help. Hey even if your office building or sidewalks are looking a little mundane these days he can bring that clean shine back. I just saw one of the pictures on his FB and I swear this old moldy looking roof looks brand new now (posted below). Quite frankly, I didn’t know results like that were even possible.
So what’s our take on Remoh Services Pressure Washing? We dig it, big time. Residential, commercial, Jordan’s your guy. There’s even a discount when you have your entire house cleaned. So why has Jordan’s business been around for 5 years? Because he does killer work, at better prices, and stands 100% behind his work. You don’t find that anymore so enjoy it and support an outstanding local business.
Not like ours, this one is a specialty contractor. We had a nice chat with Jack from Tri - State Concrete Services Inc. They’re not your typical concrete contractor (hence the specialty) these guys specialize in mudjacking, also known as slab jacking. Jack’s been mudjacking for over 35 years now, and has been operating Tri - State Concrete Services Inc. with his family since 2004. So say your concrete patio sank on one side and is uneven, or maybe your driveway, sidewalks, etc. These guys come in and level it out. It’s actually pretty cool, they drill through the existing concrete and pump in soil cement to raise the whole slab back to level.
Mudjacking is way more cost effective when you compare it to replacing any slab of concrete. Plus if aesthetics are important to you, replacing the existing slab will likely leave an oddball slab of concrete that doesn’t match the rest. You can find these guys top ranked on home advisor, but they’ve been around longer than that.
These guys do lots of residential work, but they do commercial work too. Any concrete you need leveled, they’re your people. Doesn’t matter if it’s made with real stone (which they do themselves), flagstone, or any other masonry stone. They’ve got contracts with some of the biggest property management companies and municipalities in the area because their work is so good. If local municipals trust them, so do we.
