Starting a Hand Car Wash Business


With willingness, perseverance and dedication, you can start a hand car wash business and start making substantial cash profits. To achieve this, you need to research well on your market and find a site that you will attract a steady flow of customers. When you find your site, you should make sure that you charge fair prices to your customers so as to maintain them. Remember attracting new customers into your business is not as hard as it is to maintain the old ones and if you offer quality services to your customers at a reasonable price, they will with no doubt recommend your to their friends, creating an exponential growth of your hand car wash business.
However before you can start, there are some things that you should consider. For instance you should make sure you have enough capital to help your business run smoothly. One reason to business is to earn a living as well as make profit. You should therefore spend time planning to ensure that you complete all the required stages in the process required to open and establish a successful business. You can decide to start your own business or buy one already operating, your aim is to make profit and you should make sure your business runs smoothly.

If you decide to buy an established business then there are a number of things that you first need to outline. Firstly you need to identify the car wash you wish to own. In this case you will have to choose between pressure car wash or a hand car wash. The amount of money you have will help you settle on the one that suits you best. Location of the car wash is also a very important consideration. It should not only be in a place with a large number of customers but you should also ensure it is visible to those customers. Otherwise how will they come looking for your services if they cannot even locate your business? Location is also dependent on your funds available, as a prime site on a busy road will demand more rent which will affect your bottom line. There is a lot to consider, with each decision affecting the overall potential success of your new business.

A hand car wash has numerous advantages that will motivate you and help you build a profitable site. For instance you do not need a lot of machinery; all you need is access to water, good quality chemicals, micro fiber cloths, a means to spray and apply the product, elbow grease and either a council compliant drain or a water tank for disposal of the waste water generated. Provided you enjoy using your hands, you can wash many cars per day and make a lot of profit. If you are in a very busy car wash with the associated higher overheads, you can decide to hire workers, helping you in the cleaning, Factoring in their labour costs and costs of product consumed should still leave you a tidy net profit from the revenue they create. This way you can increase your profit by washing more cars, more customers lead to more referrals and so the cycle of building your business continues.

An indisputable fact is that a hand car wash is far better that one done using a machine. If you can portray professionalism in your work, you will no doubt attract many car owners. Providing a quality service with pride at the right price in a busy location will ensure you success.
