The ‘Musts’ of Auto Detailing Services

To really get a leg up on the competition, you need to have the right mindset to make your business competitive. To help you achieve that mindset, we’ve created this list of ‘musts’ that help make a detailing business thrive.

You must have a passion for detail. Detailing is all about precision and quality. Even small mistakes can stand out. If you can train your eye for detail into a passion, then you’re sure to excel.

You must have the right tools. A craftsman is only as good as his tools, as the saying goes. In detailing, this rings especially true. Make sure you have all the tools you might need on hand, and make sure they’re in good condition. 

You must have the right chemicals. Similarly to having all your tools at hand, it’s important to make sure you have the right chemicals on hand as well. Take inventory often to make sure you don’t run out of anything.

You need to be more than a car cleaner. Auto Detailing is so much more than just cleaning a car. Great detailing services return so much more value to a customer than a simple cleaning, so don’t sell yourself short!

You must be creative. It’s important to think critically and creatively in order to find the most appropriate strategy for the detailing services you are providing, in order to meet your customer’s needs.

Room for Improvement

On top of the ‘musts’ of Auto Detailing 101, there are a few questions you may want to ask yourself to see if you’re doing all that can be done to make your business prosper. If you answer ‘no’ to any of these, you may want to consider adding more to your services in the future.

Are you offering just wash/wax? More options can bring in more customers. A wash-and-wax is great, but if customers see a menu of different services or packages, they may be enticed to come back again and again.

Do you have an express service? An express service offers customers in a hurry the convenience of speed. Some may opt for a more traditional service, but a surprising amount of people prefer the express route.

Are interior services a focal point for your business? While a sleek exterior is great, people spend most of their time inside of their vehicle, so interior work cannot be overlooked.

Are your detailers trained for exterior work? Exterior services are a multiple step process and advanced training is needed to properly complete an exterior detail.

Maybe you have the processes and equipment in place already and you just need a next level product.  We’re happy to help with that! Check out our auto detailing products here.
