    It's that time again. Many buy equipment/chemistry at end each year to maximize tax deductif so, do you want something custom in the cleaning industry? Heres my advice on ordering from any custom manufacturer, including TMF;

    -Ask for "actual buying experiences".

    -Ask "actual buyers" how they handled their warranties.

    -Buy what fits your business model, cleaning style and not someone else’s.

    -Discard gossip, personal vendettas and competitive agendas.

    -Understand that green handshakes go on in this industry.

    -Expect extended time for builds. The more custom the more time.

    -Make an agreement in writing and lay out exactly what you agree upon along with warranty info.

    -After that pay by credit card a down payment.

    -Pay the remainder by credit card upon receipt of the tracking number.

    There are scores of good, average and bad sellers in the cleaning industry. TMF has over 5000 5 star reviews. Anytime anyone has an issue I personally go bat for them and make sure its 100% right. Just remember not every manufacturer/seller does same. Do your homework and enjoy your new tax break purchases!

    no its an agreement between say a forum owner and a company that sells products.

    or many other scenarios where money is involved to pump up a product that maybe isnt really that good

    most every forum out there that is related to an industry or certain type of vehicle does this.

    Toyota tundra forum for example etc, you ask a question about what some good parts are and their friends or fake member accounts, or advertisers that seem like members all chime in and direct you where to spend your money

    "the blah blah shocks are hands down the best and heres the best price on them"

    Thats more of a competitive agenda because rarely green involved. And there are different price points. Some drive Chevys because they can't afford a Lexus. Both drives you to point A and B. One just does it in style.

    Green hand shake implies someone is promoting a product because they are secretly being paid to say good things about the product. The comments may or may not be accurate. But their is a hidden motive for what some folks say.
