What Customers Say about Soda City Restorations
Spruced up now has WOW factor
Ray and I had several conversations about his services and costs. I took an immediate liking for him because he came across as wanting to help you instead of ripping you off. I have had my old 1950s coke machine for several years and wanted some work done to make it more appealing and yet keep it looking same. My 10 grandkids think I am the coolest grandpa because I have this old coke machine. I sent pics to Ray, and we decided on a scope of work. Ray was very knowledgeable and gave me tips on how to transport my machine to him. I was lucky that he lives about 110 miles from me, so I hauled the coke machine to him in my pickup truck. Ray said what he could do and then he did it. I love dealing with people who say and do what they say. I picked up my machine today and it now has that WOW factor, can’t hardly wait for the grandkids to come over and hear their comments.
I visited him at his shop, and he has a first-class restoration operation going on and he does it as a hobby, so you know he takes pride in his work.
Exceeds our expectations!
Great experience with refurbishing our family Coca Cola machine. Ray and his team kept me up to date regularly. They are detailed and committed to using high quality finishes and the end result exceeded our expectations. Ray’s passion for this work is contagious. Highly recommend!
