    You need an excessive dirtiness clause. Amazing rescue!

    I charge $275 base price for an internal XL vehicle. That would have likey taken me 8 hours or more. $500 is what I would have charged. As stated above, you need to have an extra dirty vehicle surcharge. What vehicle is it and how many hours did you have in to it? How much did you charge?

    I made a previous thread about how I am new to the area I am starting to detail out of. As stated in it I am having problems on pricing the new area. Its mainly a rural area and the median Income for individual is around 20K and the household is around 40k. The area I came from just the median individual median income was 50k. anyways, I charged $175 and almost took me 10 hours.

    Re: What would you have charged?

    After taxes you made about $127
    Then minus materials, whatever that was....say $27.

    So when its all said and done you made $100 10 hrs = $10/hr.

    You got burnt for $175. What is YOUR time worth? Are you doing this full time? Or are you doing this as a side gig outside of a full time job?

    I have a job but I am trying to do this full time because I love detailing. I do on average about two cars a week outside of my job.

    Definitely looks and sounds like you aren't charging enough. Side gig or not, that job looked like it should have cost more. You and everyone in the business def needs an extra dirty surcharge as mentioned...
