Mobile Services

When I think back about how I started my detailing businesses, I did it the “old fashioned” way. By old fashioned I mean I opened my own fixed location shop with overhead, employee’s etc. They say hindsight is 20/20, but if I had to do it all over again I would skip the fixed the shop location and go straight to offering mobile services along with detailing to all my customers.

It’s important to understand this about Auto Detailing Guide so you can see why we do this. After a decade in the business, my team and I now have access to excellent sources of auto detailing equipment, auto detailing supplies, important business insurance, training, organization systems and more. So now I write about my experiences and try to help other detail shop owners build their businesses. Kind of my way to give back to a great industry that I really enjoy being involved in.

Auto Carpet Cleaning

Old school detailers just used an old shop vac, scrub brush and a bucket. It’s a horrible way to scrub carpets and isn’t even close to a professional auto carpet cleaning, but they managed somehow. Other less professional detailers like to spray chemical on your carpets, pressure wash the dirt out and then drill small holes in your floor boards to let the water drain out. I know you think I’m kidding, but I’m not. Professional heated carpet extractors will run about $1,500. So if your detailer does not have one, go somewhere else. If they can’t afford $1,500 for equipment that will dramatically improve the quality of their work, then you don’t want your car near them.

The ozone machine creates negatively charged ions that attach to larger particles of the pollutants or odors and then catches them in it’s filter to be cleaned out later.
