Detailing Business Options
So you want to get into the auto detailing business and are not sure what options are right for you? It is a difficult choice indeed and there are so many options. Let me tell you a few having been in the industry some 27-years, we have seen a lot of businesses come and go and we have seen what works.
If you have space and a large shop with Ziebart, Detail Plus or a Detail Guys Super Center or an independent shop with sufficient parking you may really want to be considering the trucking industry. Detailing Big Rigs is a big business for independents, corporate and private truck fleets as well a new dealerships and used truck brokers and auctions. If you own a carwash with limited space you may need to go mobile. Perhaps a Sparkle Wash Franchise is for you, check it out at;

You can also buy a machine, and try it yourself and kind of try to learn as you go. To buy equipment and go independent see: www.landa.com, www.hydrotek.com, www.dcs1.com, www.envirotech.com or www.aaapws.com. Be careful, one mistake with the wrong equipment and efficiency goes out the window. As you can see the possibilities of things to detail is almost as unlimited as the things you can do to the items you are detailing. The detailing business is alive and well in the US of A, think about it.
