    New shop owner

    Hi all,

    Been lurking for awhile and figured it was finally time to join. I recently had a two bay shop built and I've been running out of it for 2 months now. I'm up here in Maine so demands been a bit low, but February is already looking really promising. Most of my equipment is from when I was mobile so the interior of the shop is pretty bare but I hope to grow into it this year.

    PS Mike I took your advice and used my real name for my username. Thanks for the tip!

    So cool to be your own boss! It can be tough at times but well worth it! I have owned my own business (not detailing business) going on 14 years and love it! You will kick ass when the weather gets better! KEEP ON ROCKING!

    Good Luck and wish you success. I was in the same situation, I opened my shop October 2018. Most of my equipment came right out of my mobile trailer.

    I'm in Gardiner which is right below Augusta. And it's kinda funny but I actually stumbled across your website a month or two ago when I was developing a new version of mine. You're one of the few detailers in the upper New England area that has a nicely designed website.

    Thank you for the compliment. It’s nice that more and more detailers are popping up here on AGO from Maine.

    I am trying to note these ones because occasionally I will get a call from afar. And people willingly will travel for good work. But I am a mobile service and am not willing to travel to them.

    AGO members get chosen first on my list typically for referring work.

    Please keep me posted about your shop and feel free to PM me or to get in touch one day if your in the mood for “detalk”.

    Thanks Dan. I'll definitely keep you in mind if I have a question or want to chat.

    I'm really tempted to start a shop build thread to document as I go from a bare interior to a fully loaded up shop over the next few years.
