Extremely impressed with Roland and Carr Enterprises. I recently ordered a custom 29-gallon aluminum belly fuel tank for my Baja Islander through Roland. He was extremely helpful, and took way more time to answer my questions than any other tank builder I contacted for quotes. Great price, turn-around time was excellent, shipping was fast & cheap. The build quality of this tank is far better than many of the other fabricators' aluminum tanks I've seen in various boats. The welds are thick and consistent (he welded the insides as well before the lid was put on). All dimensions were met, and all fittings were in the correct locations. I'll be recommending Roland and Carr to anyone needing a new custom-built tank.
the tank fit perfect very impressed thanks roland i will tell all my friends in the boat bis about this place
I needed a replacement fuel tank for my 1985 Alumaweld. As I shopped around, Roland at Carr Enterprises was the best at responding to my questions. His quote was very competitive too. Roland took the time to double check some critical fitting configuration details with me. When that led to increased in shipping cost over the initial quote, he helped with that. My tank arrived yesterday and I am very happy with it. Total turnaround time including shipping from Florida to Oregon was pretty darn good. The tank quality is excellent. The dimensions are precisely correct. Fittings are as requested. There was a handy reminder to remove a rubber band from the fuel sender taped on the tank. This tank will restore new life to my boat and is going in today! Thanks, Roland.
I could not be happier with my choice of Roland Rochette at Carr Enterprises to fabricate a custom 73 gallon replacement fuel tank for my \'77 Fish Nautique. I was in a hurry to get the tank, and Roland scheduled production quickly in order to get it to me in Connecticut well before my deadline. When I received the tank I found it had been damaged in shipment, so I contacted Roland. He was very apologetic and arranged for UPS to ship it back to him via one-day air. He repaired it, re-tested it, and shipped it back the same day by one-day air (also at UPS expense). Despite these delays, I was able to get the tank installed by my original 4th of July deadline in time for visiting family from out-of-state. This situation was a considerable hassle for Roland, and I appreciate the extremely high level of customer support he provided. It really doesn\'t get any better or more professional. I\'m confident the repaired tank is literally as good as new, and Roland gave it a primer coat before shipping it back--a very generous and much-appreciated gesture. I have to give Roland the highest possible rating for workmanship, communication, professionalism, and customer service. I\'m happy to recommend Carr Enterprises to anyone, and I\'ll be certain to return to them when I need any of the services or products they offer. If I sound like a satisfied customer, then it\'s possible I\'ve understated my case... David Madacsi Mystic, CT
In business for over 50 years, I have dealt with numerous people and vendors so I have a long track record of contacts and knowledge. I must say that working with Roland at Carr Enterprises was one of the best experiences. He never acted like it was an inconvenience to answer questions and took the time to do it right. The quality of work was some of the best that I have seen even from local shops. No one around here was able to do the testing and the certification that I needed. I can't say enough good about this experience and highly recommend this company.
I discovered that the tank in my Steiger Craft Chesapeake had corroded beyond all repair during my deck and transom replacement. I didn\'t know quite what to do since this was a sloped tank and I couldn\'t find an aftermarket that would work. So, after a quick internet search I found Carr Enterprises online. I sent in a quote request not being real optimistic and almost immediately (on a Sunday) received a quote back. I was so impressed by the price, what I\'d be getting, and how reasonable shipping was from Florida to Ohio, that I placed my order. I am a backyard restorer of all things, and I get packages from many vendors almost every day. It\'s just so hard to get good products with decent customer support, and frankly I am always suspicious or tend to expect the worst. I opted for the epoxy coating, and added a couple of extras. My tank had many different measurements and was a little more complicated than standard. It shipped in a week! When it arrived, I was beside myself. The quality is unmatched. The welds were top notch, and it came tested with a certification label. I held off ordering all of my hoses but didn\'t need to, all of the fittings were exactly where they needed to be. Even the epoxy paint was perfect! Communication and follow up made me feel comfortable about the whole transaction. I\'m definitely going to have Roland do my future fabrication. Thanks again!
