A Proud History

Reliable Plus was founded by Gerald Fritsvold in 1986 providing car wash repairs, maintenance, and service. The business grew as the company began selling and installing equipment. Barb and Cary Fritsvold purchased the company in 1998, and the family’s promise of real, reliable, results proved invaluable as the business expanded into North Dakota, Wisconsin, and, in 2017, into Iowa. The Reliable Plus legacy continues as part of the third generation of the Fritsvold family proudly wears the company colors.  Car wash equipment

To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.
