mobile car detailing service
A Mobile Car Detailing Service could turn into a very profitable business. It would require a good looking van, some professional quality cleaning products, small vacuum cleaners, electric cords, and access to an electrical outlet and a good water source.
Some of the business expenses for a mobile car detailing service are local and state licenses and permits, as well as auto and liability insurance. Check the Small Business Association website (www.SBA.org) for a lot of useful information.
You will also need to consider the cost of the vehicles and maintenance, fuel, cleaning equipment, advertising, as well as employee wages and social security taxes.
If you do not have car detailing skills, especially with professional buffers, get some before you work on a clients car. Damaging a customers car will not help your business. You might even find the buffers on eBay. Check with local community colleges or trade schools.
You will find some recommended ebooks below.
Starting A Modern Car Detailing Business This is a complete training system with 4 Ebooks, 21 training videos, and 2 website templates. Learn how to detail cars quickly with their 62 step process. Dominate your competition by finding customers where they are not: Google, Yahoo, and Craigslist.
Excellent price for such a complete course! I strongly recommend it.
Practice your car detailing skills on your vehicle until you are confident you understand how to properly buff a car. You can do more damage than good if you do not have the "touch".
You may also need a few employees for your mobile car detailing business, depending on the size of the jobs you do. And don't forget to have someone answer you phone calls when you are working. You will not impress your present clients if you have to stop working to answers calls.
You will spend a considerable amount of time finding business. I would recommend beginning with the business yellow pages to search for clients that have more than one vehicle and might need a break on their expenses. When talking to a client, show them all the problems on their vehicles, and tell them how you will repair them. Going the extra mile will get you repeat customers and referrals.
It is also very important to give a good personal appearance. You may find it difficult to convince potential clients that you can make their car beautiful, if you don't look good, and professional, yourself.
Please understand that when people say no they might be saying no to you for now. They could be saying no to needing their car detailed at this time. Give them a business card and ask them to call you when they do need your service, or pass it on to a friend. And always ask for referrals.
How to Open and Operate a Financially Successful Car Detailing Business Are you looking to open a business that offers an endless stream of repeat customers, has a flexible work schedule, and allows you to make as much money as you are willing to put into it? If the answer is yes, then perhaps the car detailing business is for you. The average price for a complete car detail is $150 - $300. Even if you only service two cars per day, this can add up to a lot of money fast.
Potential customers could be small auto dealerships, rental car offices, and limo services who are not large enough to have their own detailing staff.
Give discounts for repeat customers and referrals, and when you are able to wash more than one vehicle in the same time block. This saves you time and them money. Also look into doctors and lawyers offices, realtors, and other professional people who need clean looking cars but are too busy to take their cars to be washed.
Businesses that have a fleet of trucks or cars, such as the phone company, cable company, etc. may also be potential customers.
Check local small airports to see if busy airplane owners would like their planes detailed. And leave a flyer and some business cards on the bulletin board directing them to your mobile car detailing business.
