  1. Re: What is the MOST you've charged for an interior?

    Can't disagree there Mike. I learned to say no early on after taking on a beast of a job. I am guessing the $500 interior was in pretty rough shape?
  2. What is the MOST you've charged for an interior?

  3. Re: Upcoming Project - Dealer Ruined Brand New Kia

    Thanks ! I got about 2 hours in before I sent the first update to the client. He couldn't believe it. When he picked it up he couldn't stop raving about it. I just hope the dealer makes good on...
  4. Re: Upcoming Project - Dealer Ruined Brand New Kia

    What puzzles me the most is that on some level, these workers think that they are doing the right thing by taking a polisher to the brand new cars. I obviously understand that there is a learning...
  6. Re: Upcoming Project - Dealer Ruined Brand New Kia

    The customer closed the deal in the early evening so he didn't see the damage until the next day. They wash it, it looks shiny under the dealership lights and the next day you wake up to a horror.
  7. Upcoming Project - Dealer Ruined Brand New Kia

    Got referred to a client yesterday after the dealer "detailed" his brand new Sorento while he was finishing the paperwork. Dealer didn't even offer to fix it (can't imagine why). Told him to find...

    Re: Bueller.....Bueller.....

    No joke. In fact, I was reading up on the movie car yesterday. Turns out there were at least 3 of them, possibly 4. 3 were replicas built specifically for the movie and 1 was the real deal used for...

    Totally. Pretty sure they already have it on their page since I tagged them in the photo . I happen to like their stuff a lot and they donate supplies to the museum every year.

    Bueller.....Bueller.....

    Long story short, I dropped by the museum and this beaut was sitting there with pretty substantial marring on the trunk that looked like it was caused by either dirty towels or someone using their...
  16. Re: How to Expand Mobile Business and make more money

    I completely understand not wanting to increase the price on your long term customers. I have had a few customers who have been with me from day 1 but last year I did have "the talk" with a couple of...
  17. Re: Feel like I was duped here with detailing and ceramic coating

    I died a lot reading this thread. The OP went into this thinking he was doing the right thing for his vehicle. Gets the whole top to bottom package for the price of a mortgage payment and gets zero...

  24. Re: Audi A6 Delivered by Carmax..... Compound sling included.

    Thanks so much ! Yeah, I don't know how that car got out the door like that. No clue what Carmax policies are as far as detailing, but this one slipped through the cracks for sure.... or they did it...
