Adding Express Detailing Services to Your Already Successful Car Wash or Automotive Business

Adding Express Detailing Services to Your Already Successful Car Wash or Automotive Business

There are many people in car detailing companies looking to make a quick buck with limited knowledge and supplies. Express Detailing is a term, which has been marketed and inevitably defined by fixed site car washes in their attempt to increase average per ticket transactions. By using express detailing as an “add-on” service for between $35.00-$60.00 they are able to up sell a $4.99 exterior wash direct mail coupon that a customer brings in to a $40.00- 70.00 charge. Their theory is sound and tends to work well for them. A car wash in and out wash which takes 10-15 minutes for vacuum, tunnel wash and dry and then another 15-20 minutes for a solvent polymer wax, with dash and tire dressing is consistent with their industry $/hour goals. Now car wash owners have gone one step further with The Blue Coral Wax Treatment.

This is a wax put on while the car is still wet, thus eliminating the drying step. The wax is rubbed on the wet car, dries to a haze and is wiped off which dramatically increases efficiency and adds even greater revenue. Thus by speeding up the process they cater even more to the new consumers attitude. “I want it now”, the quicker the better, give me my detail, I have things to do, I’m outta here. Similar customer attitudes are found in the demands of e-commerce where you buy a product today and it shows up at your doorstep next morning guaranteed by Fed EX or Two day service by RPS, Airbourne, UPS, Emery Express, or Fed EX.

In a world of co-branding, point of destination strategies and co-op marketing, all industries are evolving and diversifying to capture greater profits within a single brick and mortar location or as is appearing more commonly on Internet web sites. In general much of the new thinking has been customer driven due to lifestyle changes, low unemployment, time factors and quality of life issues of the consumer. If you look at amazon.com which now sells tapes, records and toys when previously it was strictly a books sales site. It can quickly add new revenue streams by offering it’s customer base more reasons to buy more things. You to see the revolutionizing effect of this trend? We have on-line search engines being paid million dollars from car companies and furniture companies for their industries exclusive rights to e-commerce directly on those sites. As Starbucks begins to sell housewares on their web site, and Home Depots add McDonalds inside their stores and Bank of Wal-Mart opening it’s own brand of bank within its 5 superstores; you have to think that ‘express detailing’ at car washes is simply a natural progression. Many professional detailers would disagree saying these types of services are different animals. Some complain that fixed site car washes have ruined the true definition of the term detailing. Yet if you look closely this is nothing more than true capitalism in a free market system generating additional revenues with existing resources.

Think about it for a minute. Professional Detailing Centers often do glass repair, window tinting, pin-striping and graphics, gold plating, ozone treatment, dent repair, color sanding, upholstery repair, wood grain paneling, and even after market auto accessories. These are all industries in their own right and these industry leaders with their own definitions and trade publications and accepted operational procedures complain about us offering similar services as professional detailers. They say we are stealing their customers and not providing the same quality workmanship as the craftsmen do in those industries, which may or may not be true. For example a person specializing in upholstery repair for twenty years can obviously do a better quality job than a detailer on fabrics of almost any type. You are affecting his bottom line with an inferior service since you don’t have 20 years experience in upholstery repair understanding the dynamics of thirty different types of fabric, dyes, and manufacturers suggestions for preservation.

Should he be mad at you for offering a greater array of service to you customers? No, the upholstery craftsman will need to have his own set of value added services and products he can offer to his customers such as removing and replacing seats and headliners and using the highest grade fabrics and stainless steel screws. You must have a specialty or an area of expertise, but you must also understand and then cater to the needs and more importantly the wants of your customer. If you don’t know their wants and needs, ask your customers directly in an informal survey or indirectly during conversations.

Saying that fixed site car washes have destroyed the meaning of the word detailing may be true to some extent. Yet one must ask, “Did McDonalds destroy the definition of a hearty breakfast when it introduced the ‘Egg McMuffin’ in Santa Barbara, CA?” Comparing ‘express detailing’ with a complete detailing service is merely another apples and oranges issue. We as professional detailers realize that there is no comparison. Why does this make so many of us angry? It is all those years of perfection being thrown out the window? But do not look at it that way, look at it as an incredible opportunity. Channel the frustration and anger into energy and perseverance. The fixed site car washes with their quick wax, ‘express detail’ have popularized the phrase ‘detailing’ to an entirely new group of consumers who normally might not be interested in your services prior to this introduction. It is up to us to expand upon this and take advantage of the fact that now the general workforce is buying detailing services. Sure it’s inferior, but a need, a want and desire to spend money for detailing has been formally introduced. This has opportunity written all over it as Bud Abraham said in a speech he delivered at the ICA (International Carwash Association) annual conference in Las Vegas.

Many feel that this new spin on the old terminology of detailing has adversely affected the professional detailers retail business. Fixed detailers must adapt to this market challenge or loose a large percentage of their retail detail volume and thus have their profitability affected. By differentiating their service and educating customers to the definition of a ‘Full Detail’ or ‘Complete Detailing Service’ the professional detailer is able to cater to the ideal retail customer in the middle to upper income classes. Generally members of this market segment understand the difference and are aware of the value of a real detail versus an express service. This high-end crowd can be as much as 15-35% of the professional detailers retail clientele. Let’s say that a Professional Detailer has 70% of its business in new and used Car Dealerships and other fleet customers who occasionally need detailing. Vehicles such as rent-a-cars, work vans, or sales cars for corporations and 30% in individual retail, the higher per car profit of all services offered. It is not good business sense for a Professional Detailer to simply ignore that much of their customer base, and therefore they must develop a strategy to help customers and clients understand the difference between the express service and full detail.

Some of the communication problems come into play when a customer is convinced that the $50.00-$60.00 (sometimes as low as $35.00) he or she paid for an express detail is the same service they will get when they pay a $100.00+ complete detailing service. Even when the higher price comes from a professional and reputable detailing establishment and not a 30 minute ‘express service’ from a car wash. Unfortunately unless otherwise educated, perception becomes reality.

The problems are compounded when you throw the mobile detailer into the loop. Usually charging $60.00-$80.00 and then calling his detailing services a ‘full detail’. This market player is fiercely competitive for price as he attempts to establish his new business and has the advantage of on-site service. Many of these new small companies will be in business for a summer or two, or at most a couple of years. Many opt later to establish fixed sites and raise their prices due to increased capital expenditures such as a phone system, fixtures, electrical work, reclaim devises and work benches and increased overhead or rent, electricity, office supplies, water, and reclaim waste water removal. Established mobile detailers who last over two years generally develop a larger clientele and raise their prices simply because of supply and demand economics. Their prices will usually be $100.00+ for a complete detail.

Many also offer a monthly program including washes, detailing services and monthly billing. Most mobile operations have not adopted the term Express Detailing because they believe they do a better job than the car washes with regard to quality. Many mobile operations will continue the low price of their original full detail of $60.00-$80.00, but now use the term ‘mini-detail’. This allows them to charge a full detail price to new customers but still offer previous customers and those original customers’ word of mouth referrals a low price without giving away services. It also allows them to tap into the customers that may not be able to afford a real detail but still wish to have detailing services for ego reasons, being able to tell friends, “I had my car detailed.” Why own a BMW if you can’t have it detailed. This appeals to the young executive on his way up the ladder.

A few mobile detailers have used the term ‘express detailing’, which adds even more confusion to the issue. “What is an Express Detail anyway?” Most of the new mobile detailers eventually go out of business or raise prices due to environmental reclaim issues, competition, seasonal weather, lack proper image, inferior learn as you go training or lack of industry knowledge. Many of the new professional detailers in our industry come from the mobile sector and they tend to price and deliver whatever they can sell to the customer, using the word detail whenever they think it will command a higher price. They will use the word detailing loosely to sell the job.

I think it would be fair to say that the word ‘detail’ has been over used for marketing purposes at fixed site car washes and has caused problems with the definition and mystique of professional automobile detailing. It has caused havoc for those true professionals who have worked hard and sacrificed to keep the word sacred for many years and have prided themselves in the most excellent service.

Many Old Time Detailing Professionals have been forced to address this express detailing issue by adding express services to their menu of services. This appeases the customer’s desire for quick and affordable service between quarterly of semi-annual full detailing appointments. Sometimes this cannibalizes full detailing services but if done correctly it can attract new customers to your business ho will eventually try the real thing. Once they do they will be hooked forever. By letting your customer’s experience a full detailing service you will build your complete detailing customer base.

See the chart provided to us by Nicholas J. Vacco, a seasoned detailing veteran. These are the things most full and complete detailing services include:

If a professional detailer will simply look past customer perception that “a detail is a detail” and educate them on the differences, then that professional will get the best of all worlds. By letting car washes introduce the idea and market to the consumers of the world, you will get free advertising. By car washes using the term detailing, even if it is out of context and even if they lower the once high standards in the minds of consumers, they still have opened the market ten fold. Now that this market is wide open and almost everyone has become in their own minds a detailing customer; it is up to the professional detailers to show them ‘a real detail’. It is up to us to expand our retail market mix, to expand that percentage of our business’ total sales.

Once the customer experiences the difference, they will see our point and know that an ‘express detail’ is merely a glorified wash with a hand wax, some extra dressings, and perhaps some carpet cleaning thrown in for good measure. It is hardly what professional detailers call a ‘complete and full detail’. Once your customer has become accustomed to a real detail and received a service which has exceeded their wildest expectations, that person will be a walking, talking one-person sales army for you and every other professional detailer in our industry. So press on! Let’s make believer out of our retail clientele one customer at a time.

Continue to read to learn the best approach in car shopping. If you have a good car paint protection it will repels liquids and reduces water marks, keeping your car looking pristine and beautiful.

If you are buying a car from a dealer have your mechanic look for it. If the seller or dealer declines, take your business elsewhere. Mechanics provide you with a neutral opinion on the quality of the vehicle.

Absolutely refrain from paying the full asking price for any car. The sticker price isn’t what the salesperson expects to receive for that car. If you can’t negotiate, bring in a skilled friend. Have a ballpark figure in mind before you go.

Create a car budget before you set foot in a dealership. When car shopping, never go over your maximum budget regardless of what words come out of the dealers mouth. They are not going to be stuck with the car payments for the next several years.

Think about whether the fuel economy of your car will make it more or less affordable for you. For example, a V-8 that can tow may seem smart at first. This can help you to maximize on the features that you are presented with.

Try your luck online. There is a wide variety of cars and car information available online. Completely research any vehicle you are thinking of purchasing before you visit the car lot. If you can find out how the car works, the miles per gallon, what kind of engine it has, etc. you will be ahead before you make it to the lot.

The prospect of buying a new car can be simultaneously exciting and daunting. The Internet is often your best friend in this situation. You can look up a variety of vehicles and compare prices right from your home. Many websites offer side by side comparisons of various vehicles. These sites can be a great asset when looking for great value.

Don’t forget to research when purchasing used. There are sources on the Internet that will tell you what a car is worth. In order to find out the value of a car, use NADA or the Kelly Blue Book. If the car is priced higher than these sources have them priced, go somewhere else.

Avoid As-is warranties when purchasing used cars. You will end up regretting this decision. Dealers should offer no no less than 30-90 days of warranty coverage. If your engine or transmission is destroyed on the day that you buy the vehicle, then you are going to be the one responsible for fixing the repair.

A salesperson is trying to earn a lot of money. It seems to go without saying, but it is easy to forget with a charismatic salesman. Don’t be thrown by all the potential add-ons. Even a seeming bargain can cost you much more than you think, even thousands of dollars extra if you aren’t careful.

Think about gas mileage when car shopping. A fuel efficient car may cost more in the beginning, but it will save you a lot of money over the life of the car. Take this into consideration before deciding on the vehicle you want to really help your long term budget.

If you ever feel like a car salesman is bullying you into making a decision, walk away. There is no embarrassment in walking away. Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself. Don’t waste another minute of your time there. A myriad of other dealers await you elsewhere.

If you can, wait until the end of the month before purchasing a car. Salespeople need to meet some monthly goals and they will offer you a good price if they need to generate more sales for their quotas. You can get the best deal by shopping during the last week of the month.

You should not have to pay for the dealer to advertise your vehicle. This is a fee that is superfluous and unnecessary. If they say you have to pay it, tell them you decline the offer. You will not get away!

Be sure that you find out information about all rebates before you go. A lot of dealerships give out rebates in order to sell their products. Dealerships that aren’t that ethical may not even tell you about this rebate and take that cash without ever telling you about it.

Research your car’s trade-in price and negotiate based on its value. This way, you’ll know how much you can reasonably expect to get for your old car.

You should dress well when car shopping, but don’t overdress. You will have an easier time getting a good deal if you don’t look like you can afford to toss away millions.

Conduct research before heading to the dealership. Check out vehicle comparison sites on the Internet, and view consumer magazines in order to determine the best vehicle for you. You will get great information about the vehicle this way. When it is time to head to the dealership, this information will cut your shopping time substantially.

If you are looking for a car and think you’re able to afford it, including all the interest, give it a chance! This allows you to save some cash, and you’ll be able to settle for less than other lenders would offer. Banks generally offer very low interest rates for cars.

See which dealerships your family, friends, and coworkers have used in the past. See if they’re willing to recommend any dealer. Speak to them about the condition of the car six months in the future and after sales service. If you’ve heard multiple recommendations for one dealership, try them out.

Look into financing before looking into cars. You will then know what you’re able to afford and can search for vehicles within that range. It also makes you less likely to get distracted by tempting but sneaky offers.

With these tips, you have learned great ways to prevent your shopping trip from being stressful. By purchasing an affordable car, you’ll get great pleasure from driving it every day. The work you put into the process will all be worthwhile!

Common Car Washing Mistakes to Avoid

Common Car Washing Mistakes to Avoid

The glossy finish of your car depends on a car polisher that you are using. Your vehicle is an important asset that requires consistent care and maintenance. To increase the performance value, a car or truck owner has their vehicle serviced regularly. They will have the oil changed, the windshield wipers replaced, and more. These factory scheduled services are crucial to maintain the performance value, quality, and lifespan of the vehicle. When it comes to the aesthetic well-being of the vehicle, the same degree of attention is required.

Avoid Using Dish Detergent

Dish detergent has been a popular, but consequential, choice for many vehicle owners over the years. Although it may not seem to damage your vehicle after every use, it does. Dish detergent is simply too harsh for most waxes and paint coats. It wears the car wax thin over time, and will eventually fade the paint job. Be sure to always use a cleaning solution that is specifically intended for car washing and shampooing. Leave the dish detergent for the dishes.

Avoid Using Improper Equipment

The right tools will ensure a safe and effective car wash. It is important to have proper cleansing cloths, brushes, and sources when it comes to DIY car washing. For instance, a rag or old t-shirt are not appropriate materials to use when washing your vehicle. These items contain harmful components, such as nylon, that can damage the surface of a vehicle. It can reduce the luster of the paint and implicate tiny scratches and imperfections as well. Instead, purchase a high grade vehicle wash mitt, or something similar, that is manufactured for washing vehicles. These products are more effective and safer for cars.

Do Not Let Your Car Air Dry

It is a common mistake for car owners to let their cars dry in the sun after a wash. This is harmful and cosmetically undesirable. When a vehicle is washed in the sun, the paint can suffer burn marks. It is recommended to wash a car in the shade. When a car is dried in the sun, or air dried outside, it will appear as if your car was never washed at all. This is because still water dries in place and creates water spots all over the vehicle. This can be harmful because the water is most likely tap, which contains materials like calcium, magnesium, and other metals; which are difficult to wash away with ordinary car shampoo. Use a drying cloth or chamois that is designed for car care, and manually dry the outside until the finish is shiny and clear.

Made Too Many Mistakes Already?

If your vehicle is past the point of no return, consider selling it to a junk car buyer for instant cash. Junk car buyers accept all motorized vehicles, including farm and construction equipment, regardless of their condition. It doesn’t have to be running, or even all in one piece. They will pay you cash for it no matter how worthless you think it may be!

Company Picnics – How To Plan One

STEP 1: GET ORGANIZED

Start with a notebook divided into sections for Budget, Location, Raffle Items, Party Favors, Food & Beverage, Invitations, Activities, and Games & Entertainment. Even for the smallest picnic, having this notebook will make your job easier and keep all of your important info in one place. Sydney picnic spots like North Bondi is the spot for you if you love people watching while you are enjoying your food.

Get your picnic committee together and decide who will cover what duties. It is important to have people on the committee who are god communicators and who work well together. It is also important to appoint a committee chair who would be responsible for all final decisions which need addressed.

STEP 2: Check Your Calendar

Since your employees’ families are going to be invited, the event will more then likely need to be held on a weekend. Make sure the date you pick is not a religious holiday, and unless you want to encourage a mutiny, don’t plan to hold the event on a long weekend or when half of the staff is away on vacation.

STEP 3: Determine an Approximate Head Count

Determine who will attend your company picnic and attempt to put together an approximate head count of those who will attend. While there is no exact science to do this, we have found through our experience that about 80% of those invited will attend. Multiply that number by 2.5 to account for spouses and kids. This should give you a number to work with which makes sense.

STEP 4: Establish a Budget

The company will give you limited amount of dollars to spend on your event. This budget will dictate most of your decisions. Make sure to remember Food, Drink, Entertainment, Prizes, Location Fees, etc. Corporate Picnics & Events is an all inclusive turn-key event company. This means that you can call us up, give us a budget to work with and a head count and we will do all of the work for you. We arrange the location, provide catering, print fliers for your office, take pictures, and more. We take the stress upon our shoulders which gives you more time to focus on other things.

STEP 5: Pick a Location

If you have had your company picnic at the same spot for more than 2 or 3 years in a row, consider moving it. If you decide to have it in the same location as before, consider moving it to a different spot on the event site. This will give your employees a refreshingly new feel to the annual event.
Try to find a location that can offer privacy. Many companies are having their picnic on their own grounds, either in a grassy area or in the parking lot. However, if you do decide to have it off site, you should attempt to find a location which can be reserved. Who wants to police other groups and compete over ball fields and other facilities? Make sure you have enough room for your group. It’s a picnic, so people will want to move around and kids will want to explore and run around.

If you are having the picnic in a hot month, find a place with lots of shade trees and/or pavilions. You should also think about room for tents. Make sure to plan ahead. Most public parks require a permit which start at about $20.00. The permit will ensure the spot you have in mind is reserved for the event along with picnic tables, fire pits or grills, and the like. Make sure to consider parking. You will want to have enough space for all of your guest’s cars which should be within short walking distance. If this is not possible, you may want to consider a shuttle to help transport people to and from the event site.
Some companies have chosen to have their picnic at an amusement park. These evens can be fun, but they lose the group feel and may not promote the cohesion which an event like a company picnic should. It is hard to get everyone together with the large space for all of the activities. Having a smaller site where all of your guests are within ear range of the DJ or bull horn creates the unity that these events are planned for in the first place.
We suggest your entire picnic committee goes to see the event site. This will help establish in everyone’s mind a feel for the site and what activities would work within the space. This will also help give everyone a chance to come up with ideas on how to make the event an exciting one.

STEP 6: Laying the Groundwork

Get the committee together and decide the times of the event. Most picnics last between 3 and 4 hours. If you have people working who come in shifts, then make sure the event lasts long enough to accommodate those employees.
Next, decide on any themes you may wish to have. Though a theme is not necessary, it adds a different kind of spice to the event. Some popular themes are Western, Mardis Gras, Circus Big Top, Country Fair, Safari, Luau, etc. You will want to decide on food to correspond to the theme. Your picnic can be catered or potluck. Your budget will dictate what you can and can’t do. If you choose an entertainment company which provides turn-key event planning such as Corporate Picnics & Events, They should have you covered on catering if you so choose.

STEP 7: Activities and Entertainment

It’s a picnic, so every one of all ages should have something to entertain them. At Corporate Picnics & Events, this is our specialty. We have many different packages and options which provide zones of entertainment for all ages, individual and family interaction included.
Inflatables are a huge hit with the kids all the way through the high school age group. Of course, many adults love to play on them as well. At Corporate Picnics & Events, we have the largest selection of inflatables to choose from in Arizona. All age brackets will have a fun and challenging experience with a variety of inflatables.
Carnival booths work great also. They offer a wide variety of games for all age groups. Just like at the fair. Prizes, which are often included in the cost of the carnival booth rentals, add a nice touch which gives all of your guests an opportunity to bring home a souvenir. Frisbee golf, volleyball, badminton, bocce ball, and other outdoor games can also be a popular segment of your picnic.
For the crowd that does not wish to participate in the more physical games, nothing beats old fashion Bingo. You can choose from a simple set-up, or a deluxe set-up which comes complete with a professional ball hopper. Prizes are what make this game so exciting, so make sure to pick some great ones.
For that extra touch, live entertainment is a great option. This could range from face painters, clowns, magicians, stilt-walkers, and balloon artists to a DJ or live band. They can also come in handy to fill in the gaps between planned events at the picnic.
Another popular option which goes over well is the classic family games package. This is a combination of old style picnic games such as egg toss, water balloon toss, 3 legged race, monster tricycle races, centipede skis, stick pony gallop races, beach ball hop races, and more. Ribbons or medals are often provided as part of this package.

STEP 8: Start an Information Campaign

Approximately one month prior to the picnic, you need to start getting word out about the event. There are many ways to do this such as talking it up in meetings, put an article in the company newsletter, attach notes to payroll, e-mails, and putting up posters and fliers in strategic locations throughout your building. When you book with Corporate Picnics & Events, we provide you a free event promo kit. This includes full color 11×17 customizable posters which feature all of the picnic information including pictures of the games and activities which will be present. We also provide a smaller size slick to use to pass around the office.
Be sure to let people know about what kind of prizes you will be giving away at the picnic. There are many ways to give the prizes away. You can have a raffle or you could even have a casino section where the employees play Vegas style games and bid their winnings on prizes at the end of the picnic. Most corporate events have prizes and gifts which are given away to reward their employees in one way or another. They also boost morale and show employee appreciation. It is not enough to just have several nice prizes or cash rewards without announcing in advance what will be given away.
Several companies worry about attendance if they spend the money and have a big event. This worry can be justified, however, we have found that poor attendance correlates with employees really not knowing what to expect, what activities will be at the picnic, and what prizes will be given away. Employees often respond better to an event which focuses on group and family fun, rather then the individual activities. Pre-event activities at the office can also spark interest in the picnic. Give employees opportunities to win or achieve additional raffle tickets to win prizes at the event and they must be present at the event to win. Also, make sure the event is located at a central site which is convenient for everyone.

STEP 9: The Big Day

As the stress and worries come to a peak, make sure to get some sleep the night before the event. Inclusive turn-key event companies like Corporate Picnics & Events take a lot of the stress away by providing all of the services which are required to make your picnic a success. In addition, they have their customer relations / Sales people keep in periodic contact with you in the weeks leading up to the event. This contact should include a map and layout of how the event will be set-up, a timeline for activities, and courtesy calls. These are added benefits which we have found to take much of the stress away from the committee and employees who are in charge of planning the event.
