How to Start An Auto   -   detailing/ Car Wash Business

Want to start your own business?

Here is an idea - Waterless Car Wash business! Interested? You see in this business you not only get the financial benefits, but also fee about not spoiling the environment. This is because of the innovative technology that doesn’t need any water to wash the car as well as eliminates toxic run off and offers you a full mobility.

So this method is emerging rapidly becoming a particularly attractive niche for small business.

Running such business you would focus on different customers i.e. various industries, auto dealers, auto repair companies, taxi and car rental companies, big fleets, individual drivers and many other.

WHY WOULD I CONSIDER THAT?

Allows you to be completely flexible

Possibility to run mobile service. That means that YOU go to your customers instead of waiting for them to knock your door. With Waterless car wash products, you do not need access to water, escape the need to carry hoses and buckets around and avoid the usual mess. You just need to fit waterless products in your car and off you go to the delight your customers! Tempting idea, isn't it?

This is how you bring additional value to your customers as you get there for them when and where they need your car wash services.

Save money

Being a professional dealer, you get the chance to purchase the product in concentrate, which means that the cost per wash gets even lower! Plus, you save on water bills.

Be responsible to your Planet and its People

Some waterless car washers claim to be friendly, just because they are saving water. Yes, it is a great contribution, indeed. However, I suggest to look at the ingredients within the products. Are they biodegradable? Non toxic? No chemicals? See Eco Touch product line for example - all the ingredients of each products are officially disclosed. You should look for the products that are combined of powerful plant-based surfactants. Also our planet will be glad if you help to eliminate toxic run off and reduce water consumption.

Meet the future

Increasing regulations and environmental restrictions point to future, where both – water consumption and product ingredients - must be taken into account. Be first to face the turn of the changes.

Instructions in more details

Analyse all the other car wash companies. See what services they provide - chemical wash? Washing with eco-friendly products? Wash by hand or automatically? Use waterless technology? They all are your direct competitors. Why don't you try out some of those services and evaluate their quality. Find the breaking points - things that you could definitely do better than your competitors. Think of small things... eg. provide fun activity in your waiting room. But most importantly, study the competitors’ pricing and make sure yours is competitive enough. In everything you do, think of the additional value that you might offer for the customers that would make you stand out in the eyes of customers against your competitors.

Find the main supplier. Look for waterless car wash products that are organic and biodegradable so you do less harm to the environment. However, not all of those products do the job as great as they claim - check if they have any third part proof, certifications. Would be also good to ask for some roof that the products do not scratch the car paint. Otherwise you would need to do get it yourself.

Contact the supplier for product testing. For full car wash you will need a range of interior and exterior car care products. It is suggested to contact several distributors and get a grasp of their business atritude and manner, the response time and the ability to deal with problems. After all they will become your main partners, thus you want to make sure that they are pleasant to work with.

Market your business. Think of a catchy name for your company, unique brand and the colors. Use the same colours for your shirt and other representative material. Tell everyone you know, that you are starting a mobile waterless car wash business. This will create the word of mouth. Give your friends and some discount for your services for bringing one more customer. Think of some local events, i.e. neighbors’ day. People in this business say, it is the “word-of-mouth” recommendation that keeps their business running.
