    here is an idea that you can try... buy a list of the local companies with let`s say 10-50 employees , design an good looking card , have some offers for volume , mail them and pray....
    and if you pray enough and clear your sins you may end up with a few accounts.


    some business owners have nice cars and they can cover washes for employees too , tru the business so they can deduct on the business.
    sometimes when you work on the boss cars , the employee may follow , just make sure you have enough man power when needed.

    probably the best way is to build a network with car dealers , that way you get cars from the source and your name is given out to the right client.....

    also you can target households with min 200-300k income ( just an example)

    The best way to not look like every hack detailer going from business to business is not do it in the first place.

    Want to be unique and high end? Go to cars and coffee and hand out bags with a mini spray bottle of waterless wash with your contact info on it and let people use some towels of yours. When they bring them back start a conversation. Or offer to do some sort of demo.

    Re: Approaching hi end businesses, card or flyer?

    This is kind of what I did. Cars and Coffee or other car events. I have decals with my FB and IG @ names on my wagon. It starts a conversation that can turn into revenue if you are even a decent salesman. I have even gone as far as not washing my car for a whole month and then about the time everyone is showing up I do a waterless wash on only half of my car. About an hour later I do the other half. I like talking to people. This gives me plenty of people to talk to.

    Re: Approaching hi end businesses, card or flyer?

    HOW do detailers who are usually very OCD and take meticulous care and pride in their own cars even think its ok to touch someone elses cars and put papers all over it (IE flyers)????? Do you like people touching your cars? Leaning over the fender to pull the windshield wiper up? Shoving a piece of paper into the window felts that are meant to keep rain out of the inside of the door? I realize OP is no longer doing this but I just cant grasp how someone so particular about vehicle care would do this to someone elses cars?

    Re: Approaching hi end businesses, card or flyer?

    how about having some kind of drawing where someone can win a free detail. pass out some flyers / questioners trying to find out who the car guys or girls are. you can ask questions about what they drive & how they maintain it etc,etc. tell them a little about yourself & what you do. letting them know what you want in return is some exposure. you'll take the car for a day & return it to the business park to showcase your work. I mean if you read most of the post on this site a lot of the work comes by word of mouth. if you get a nasty car & turn it into a gem you'll get some work from it. I mean I could be wrong but it may work. you may want to cruise the parking lots & maybe pick out your own project. I could be wrong but this may work in the right setting. good luck
