    Default May Be Entering The World Of Mobile Car Valeting...Advice Please

    Hi all,

    As some of you may/may not know, I'm currently looking for a new career. One that I am looking into is starting up a Mobile Valeting Business.

    Any Advice or Suggestions on anything to do with setting this up? I.e, steps to take etc.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Chris

    Sounds like a good idea m8 only thing i would be unsure on is.... is it seasonal i know valeting happens all year round but i dont know what the demand would be in the middle of winter when its raining. (Note: was gonna put snowing but that is far and few between these days)

    HTH m8 just an observation but yeah does sound like you could make a business out of it.

    Have a look at this thread here on detailing world - its all about starting up a valeting business.

    http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...ead.php?t=9987

    There is also details on the site about courses and detailing training days to attend - I am going on one this Saturday as I bought a Megs G220 last week and I am a bit scared to use it.

    Hope this helps

    One thing I would say is always take a camera with you! Take photos of any scratches or damage when you start and point it out cause a rs3hol3s try it on and blame you! Be warned my mate was stung like this!

    Thats good advice, top tip! Inspect the car with the client before begining. Have an inspection sheet to fill in like those you get with a hire car.
