April 16, 2013

CULLMAN, AL — Brad Dunn took over for his father running VIP Mobile Auto Spa in October of 2011, the Cullman Times reported.

The April 15 story stated that Dunn's father had started the mobile operation in 2008, but he suffered a stroke and was no longer able to work. Dunn, an 18-year-old senior at Fairview High School at the time, stepped up and has done well.

VIP uses a van that is a full-service car care operation on wheels, the story noted. It includes electricity, carpet cleaners, brushes and 200 gallons of water. Dunn can clean several cars in one day.

The business serves personal and commercial customers, and there are also contracts with fleet clients. "We cover the entire county, but most of our business is within a five mile radius of downtown Cullman," Dunn said in the story.

Brad likes working outdoors, even when he has to deal with cooler weather. He wears coveralls when the weather is bad, and he said in the story, "it's all part of the job."
