If you’re great at detailing cars and you don’t really have a location to open a car detailing shop, why not start a mobile car detailing business? In fact, such a business might even be better than the stationary one, because you’ll have less costs, and you’ll be more active by coming directly to your customers. However, in order to start such a business, you’ll need to know all the tips and tricks to such a task, and that is what we’re going to present to you here. We’ve run into a person that deals with mobile car detailing in Newcastle, and asked him how to start such a business. Here’s what he told us.
The very first thing you need to obtain, in order to start such a business is a mobile phone and a vehicle that is big enough to store all of your supplies and car detailing tools. Most people use station-wagons, while other use SUVs, but if you want to, you can even use a trailer.
The next thing you need to have is a permit that is usually being issued by your local government. Make sure that you’re doing everything by the book, because that way you know that you can’t get in any trouble. You’ll never going to have to pay any fines, which means that you’ll have money for yourself and more money to invest in your business.
It is also important to advertise yourself, so that the public would know that your business exists. Get some printed material, such as business cards, pamphlets and fliers, and share them all over the town. That way, more people would know your business exists, and you’ll get more calls.
Of course, you’ll need the tools and materials for your work, and you need to buy it even before you start your own business. So, get all the stuff that’s needed, such as auto wax, interior cleaners, exterior cleaners, brushes, vacuum cleaners, and so on. You’ll also need some objects that are vital for your work, such as the buckets, window squeegees, sponger, special towels, etc.
Don’t forget that you’ll need a uniform in order to be recognised as a mobile car detailer. Also, besides the uniform, make sure that your business car is clearly marked with your company logo and your phone number; that way, you’ll be advertising yourself for free!
While we’re at the subject of advertising, ask your local grocery stores or shops if you could place your pamphlet on their window, or ask them to advertise you, and in return you’ll advertise their show. Quid pro quo, it’s the best way of doing things, and it won’t cost you one penny.
So, now you know what it takes to start your own mobile car detailing business, Make sure you complete each of these steps, and only then start doing business. It may be a bit difficult at first, but just remember that hard work always pays off, and with some faith, your business should grow really fast.
