    Jet ski pricing

    So Iíve searched and canít find very much info on jet ski detailing pricing. I have 2 Sea Doo RXT 300 jet skis a customer dropped off to me today unannounced. My steps that Iím going to be doing are, wash, AIO compound/polish, and top it with collinite. Can anybody give me some insight on a price point to start at?

    Take what you want to make per hour and multiple it by how many hours it will take you to do the job.

    Round this to the nearest $100.00 and that’s your price.

    Also - I merged your two identical threads together. One thread per topic.

    Thatís what I was leaning towards, I just didnít want to quote too high or too low.

    I knew I couldnít quote per foot like my boat details because I wouldnít make anything off two small jet skis.

    Thank you for the insight and quick response Mike!

    I did one of the same model (I think) earlier this season. The client wanted it ceramic coated. There is some kind of strange finish on these things and you cannot use any kind of solvent or strong degreaser on them. So I ended up doing a rinseless wash and I degreased it with palmolive dish soap diluted about 20:1 in a spray bottle. The jetski was new so it did not need any correction.

    For the work time, It depends on if you need to do the hull as well as the top part. If so, it will take a while. If not, it took me about 2 hours from start to finish to wash, degrease and coat... so about half the time it would take me on a small car. I hope that gives you an idea how much to charge. I would still give the client a range of prices in case something takes longer than expected.

    Also, I only did the top part of the vehicle, the jet ski was on a trailer and I did not have full access to the hull so we decided to only do the top part. If your client has it setup in a way that the hull would be accessible, it would probably take you as long, if not longer than doing a small car.

    Hope it helps.
