  1. Re: Fresh face, NEW VAN and fun mobile retrofit to start up my NEW old passion as a Mobile Business

    Shop ☑ Login • Instagram
    Mobile booked out into the second week of August sun up to sun down ☑

    At least I'm not begging on Instagram for work. God I love this thread, the haters keep me so...
  2. Re: Mobile detail detail on public streets/lots?

    That just seems totally untrue. If people don't want you at their house maybe it's time to reevaluate your presentation.
  3. Re: Question for mobile detailing guys with small vans?

    I run an on demand shurflo pump. Gravity feed is terrible and no pro should rely on that.
  4. Re: Question for mobile detailing guys with small vans?

    I run a 2.6 gpm Honda gas with 110 gallon water tank. I rarely fill it up. With it completely full I can get six jobs out of it, maybe 7 but I rarely do more than 2-3 vehicles per day as my jobs tend...
  5. Re: Mobile detail detail on public streets/lots?

    99% of your business should be in somebody's driveway. You're over thinking it. I've been in business three years and I've never done a job on a busy public street. I tell my customers if your...

    Re: How to Make Money on SUV's

    Oh did that time include a correction as well? I read it as just a wash, clay and sealant.

    Re: How to Make Money on SUV's

    If it was taking him 7 hours to do essentially a wash, clay and sealant on a mid size SUV as a pro I'm guessing he's no longer in the game.
  8. Re: What add-ons to offer? (non-detailing required)

    It sounds like he's looking to add on things like car wash tunnel knick knacks. Air fresheners, mats, hand sanitizer, etc. Not detail related add ons.
  9. Re: How not to scratch interior plastics and nav screen, does that exist?

    If you're trying to be a professional you should be buying the best towels you can get your hands on not buying them at Costco or the auto parts store.
  10. Sticky: Re: Advice for someone considering a mobile detailing side business?

    Fwiw I was referring to the fact that terrible hard water and extreme heat are usually a bad mix and that he will most likely have to carry his own spot free water.
  11. Sticky: Re: Advice for someone considering a mobile detaling side hustle!!!

    Impossible to use the water in many municipalities. I'm assuming Las Vegas is one of those places.
  12. Sticky: Re: Advice for someone considering a mobile detaling side hustle!!!

    So many questions, I could write a book. Sorry nobody answered you sooner. The one thing I would suggest to you is that starting out don't fall in love with the idea of whiling away your days...
  13. Re: Most appropriate,time, place to hand out business cards etc?

    To your friend, of course he is breaking a law. A federal law. A mailbox is intended for receipt of postage paid us mail only. That's a no brainer.
  14. Re: Most appropriate,time, place to hand out business cards etc?

    Almost every customer that I do a job for asks for multiple cards so that's a good ploy. I'm going through about 200 cards a week right now and I'm super stingy with them.
  15. Re: Most appropriate,time, place to hand out business cards etc?

    That's needle in a haystack stuff. Save your business cards for people that ask for them, you'll get poor enough return using that method forget just giving them out to random people. You can ask...
  16. Re: How to remove Nasty Film on Interior Plastics?

    The problem with the dash and door panels is the grain. That's where the brush comes in. You'll never get it out of the grain with a rag.
  17. Re: How to remove Nasty Film on Interior Plastics?

    It looks like cars that I do that have sunscreen all over the doors. It's really common here. The only thing I've found that gets it out is lightly diluted apc and one of those yellow scrubby...
  18. Re: Mobile detailing and online/card payments

    I'll give you an anecdotal story about bofa merchant services. I used to run an online golf business, one of the first actually. I sold ping fully customized where you could completely configure it...

    Re: Pricing Help

    When I opened this business I didn't know a lot about it but I know how to run a business. I learned so much about the technical aspects of the business from reading these forums. So thank you...
  20. Re: Marketing Help - Need suggestions for growing my business?

    Google AdWords and yelp. There are people out there searching for your services. They're on Google and yelp. You're doing your business a great disservice by not targeting these customers. And I...
  21. Re: Mobile detailing and online/card payments

    Unless you're doing a ton of business and I mean like $15k a month, merchant services are not cost effective. Remember thar 1% savings is easily eaten up by the cost to rent the equipment.

    Re: Pricing Help

    Never tell a customer that the reason you charge more is because products and equipment cost you more because they buy in bulk. You can tell them that you use better products and those cost more. The...

    Re: Mobile detail business?

    And if that's the case, be sure to look up my account first because I'll be taking that business with me as well. Because when it's all said and done, I am the customer.
