Why Should You Start Your Own Business?

open-your-own-business-signIn these tough economic times, many families are struggling just to keep their heads above water. Add in the uncertainty of employment and it makes an already stressful situation that much worse. Over one million jobs were lost in the U.S. in 2012. It’s numbers like this that prompt many entrepreneurial minded individuals to take their livelihood into their own hands by starting their own businesses.

Now, let’s not delude ourselves, starting a business can be very scary. But great rewards await entrepreneurs lucky enough to create successful small businesses. These are benefits you may miss out on if you remained a wage earner for the rest of your life. Although only you can decide if you're ready to quit your job and plunge into running your own business, there are many rewards associated with going out on your own.

Benefits of Owning Your Own Business

  • Independence and flexibility.  You'll have more freedom and independence working for yourself. And once your business is firmly established, you'll probably have the flexibility to make sure you don't miss the moments and events that matter most to you in life.
  • Personal fulfillment.  Owning and running your own business can be more satisfying and fulfilling than working for someone else. Many successful small business owners find they enjoy the respect they earn from their peers for having the courage to go out on their own.
  • Power.  Don't be surprised if power is one of your goals. When it's your business, you can have your employees do it your way. If power is important to you, think about how to use it in a constructive way.
  • Money.  The risks of forgoing a steady paycheck can pay off when you own your own business. You can get rich in a small business, or at least do very well financially. Although most entrepreneurs don't get wealthy, some do.

Starting a Mobile Car Detailing Business

genie vanOne business idea that many people consider is starting a mobile car wash business. This choice is popular for those that consider it because you can begin with a small capital outlay and because you carry everything you need to your customer there is no costly overhead or site leasing costs.

Mobile car detailing eliminates the need for a physical business location, therefore limiting start-up costs considerably. You can start a mobile car detailing business with inexpensive supplies and tools and grow as needs arise. Most mobile detailers perform their services in customer parking lots, driveways and garages.

With all these advantages, many people have attempted to start a mobile car wash in their local community with some moderate success. But for some, they will research and find out that they must spend around $3,000-$5,000 just to get the equipment to start a mobile car wash . For someone strapped for cash and unable to secure financing, $3,000-$5,000 puts starting their business out of reach.

 

The Pitfalls of Going at it Alone

 road-to-success

Although, starting a mobile car wash and detailing company is one of the businesses with a low barrier of entry, there still is a considerable investment that is involved. I want it to be pointed out that starting a business like this on your own is hard, because there are a host of issues that you will most likely face.

Issues you may face when Starting Your Own Mobile Car Wash Business

Proper training and technique

$1·         The most important element of car detailing is your level of skill. Just because you have a mobile van and all the equipment necessary to perform the job, doesn’t mean you have the necessary skill set to build a successful business. These skills must be developed prior to working on customers cars, if they aren’t, you may find yourself out of business before you start.

Insurance coverage for liability issues

$1·         Outside of the necessary licensing that may be required for your city and state, it is extremely important to protect your assets with garage & general liability insurance. If your business is licensed and insured, you can feel comfortable that you are protected against any damage that may be caused to your customers’ vehicles.

Startup costs

$1·         As we stated earlier, startup costs can reach $5000. You will need a vehicle, generator, tank, pressure washers, buffers, polishers, vacuums, supplies, etc. Also keep in mind that all of these pieces of equipment will have to be maintained and serviced on a regular basis.

Attracting customers

$1·         Once you have gotten your training, licensing, insurance and supplies you are ready to do business. Unfortunately, this is where the hard part starts! How will you go about attracting customers? There are plenty ways that you can do this from getting business cards, websites, brochures, etc. But, you must be able to acquire customers in a way that won’t break the bank on your brand new business. Also, don’t forget fuel costs. You’re a mobile business, so you must factor in the expense of fuel that is required to do your marketing.

Become a Car Wash Genie Sub-Contractor

genie7 copyI know that reading that list is enough to make you want to keep your day job. But, there is a way that you can start your own mobile car wash business without breaking the bank.

Car Wash Genie has been in the mobile car wash business since 2007. We started the hard way (as described above) and weathered the ups and downs. We figured out how to sustain and grow a successful mobile detailing business in South Florida. We now have a program that is designed to help car detailers like you build your own successful businesses without all the headache.

Our program is designed to get experienced car detailers up and running with customers in their own service area (which saves them money on fuel). We even work with skilled detailers who are just starting out by providing them with a vehicle, equipment, supplies and in some cases customers.

 

By Joining Our Program You Recieve:

  • New customer accounts in your geographic area (limiting the need to travel out of your service area)
  • A detailing van stocked with all equipment and supplies (for detailers without a vehicle & equipment)
  • Coverage under our liability insurance (for qualified detailers)
  • Proper training by our professionals (you must have a required level of experience)
  • You will be servicing our customers, along with your own clients.

 

Who Should Join Our Sub-Contractor Program?

This program is best suited for car detailers who are already licensed, insured and conducting business with an established client base. We help by increasing that client base with customers who are located within a 10-15 mile radius. This allows you to service more customers in a day, because travel time is decreased. Along with the decrease in travel time comes a decrease in fuel costs.

We also help mobile car wash detailers who serious and committed to building their own businesses. If you are cleaning cars at your customers homes using their water and electricity, that isn’t a sustainable business model. If you’re a detailer working at a stationary car wash or another mobile detailing company for minimum wage, it is increasingly hard to build your own business from scratch.
