A Canadian mobile car detailing company has launched a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of car hygiene.

A Canadian mobile car detailing company has launched a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of car hygiene.

Car Detailing have warned drivers about the value of regularly cleaning their cars as the coronavirus pandemic lives on and we become more and more aware of personal hygiene to stop the spread of the virus.

A spokesman from the Vaughan based business said: “People are becoming more and more conscious of regularly cleaning their hands to protect themselves from the virus, but who thinks about the germs they are bringing into their cars on to the steering wheel, indicators, gear stick and all the other gadgets we mess with in cars after a shopping trip, lunch or night out?

“We would urge everyone to think about how

Auto Detailing – Save Your Knees and Find a Knee Pad Solution

A couple of years ago, I talked to a gentleman at Starbucks who was on disability. He had worked for a carpet installation company and had blown out his knees, both of them and could hardly walk, and one could not be repaired, although they tried by putting in some titanium. He admitted it did help for a while, but his knee was simply to tore up inside. You see, those that install carpets often use their knees to help pound the nails in the baseboard during installations as he explained it to me. Interestingly enough, I understand how important it is to save your knees because previously I was a tack star and later had raced street motorcycles, and also had done quite a bit of auto detailing. Okay so let’s talk shall we?

If you are in the auto detailing business you will be on your knees quite … Read More

Auto Detailing Basics – Cleaning the Carpet

The carpet in any car or truck is the first thing to show obvious signs of wear. Dirty shoes, debris from the road, spills, crumbs, and other causes result in carpets that capture and retain dirt. This is why your carpets, even after a quick vacuuming, always appear dirty and soiled.

Luckily, cleaning your vehicle’s carpets is easier than you think. Unlike other surfaces of your car, such as your dashboard or center console, the carpet is very similar to the carpet that you’d find in your home. This means that there are multitudes of cleaning products that exist that are both auto detailing oriented and inexpensive.

Auto Detailing Inside Tip: Laundry Soap Does the Trick!

Using laundry soap, mixed in concentrate with water, is usually all you need. For severe stains, a conventional stain remover (so long as it is non-bleaching) is typically all you’ll need.

Auto Detailing – What Does It Involve?

Auto detailing is not the same as washing your car. When you have your car auto detailed, they will clean your car inside and out. When finished, your car will look as if it is brand new. Some of tasks involved in auto detailing include polishing, waxing, and cleaning of the interior and exterior of the car along with removing debris and stains. To become an auto detailer you need to have a keen eye for the tiniest of details.

Exterior auto detailing

When detailing the exterior of your car starts by cleaning your rims and wheels of dirt and dust. Once this is done, the detailers will treat the tire sidewalls and polishing the rims.

Auto Detailing Businesses – Surviving During a Recession Considered

Well, before I retired, I was in the franchising business, in the automotive service sector. One thing I had noticed over the years was that the economy was either doing well, or doing poorly. That is to say there was an expansion period or a contraction period, growth or recession. One thing I can remember is many of our franchisees complained when the economy was bad as it was hard for them to make money. In reality, by simply adjusting your menu and the types of services you offer it is rather easy to switch over to a low-cost high-volume business model and actually make more money during a recession. Okay so let’s talk shall we?

Indeed, I realize that is a very bold statement, but I can tell you from experience and real life observations that it is indeed true. All too often the wealthier crowd stops wishing to … Read More

Do You Want to Outsource Your Auto Detailing?

All organizations must evaluate their core competencies. As an Auto Dealership, selling, servicing, and repairing cars are definitely at your core.  What about washing and detailing cars?

Conversations with General Managers, Sales Managers, and Service Managers indicate that managing the detail department is frustrating:

  • Fixed cost for a variable service
  • High turnover, less professional worker
  • Artistic personality – visual thinkers do not mesh with the technical workforce of a dealership
  • Control of chemicals and equipment is time consuming and distracting
  • Performance is critical to the overall CSI score

Outsourcing to a professional company with standards, processes, and ethics can be a great way to simplify a basic process and if done correctly turn it into a strategic partnership – an auto detailing service that works.

Variable cost structure.  By negotiating a per car price for each type of service, you take a fixed cost and make it variable.   In addition, … Read More
