Small Businesses You Can Start in Automotive

There are many choices when thinking about a small business involving your favorite hobby, cars. What about a Mobile detailing franchise? Yes they too are available. As a matter of fact there are many such choices and each is a little different let me explain.

The Detail Guys had a portable turnkey franchise with portable detailing trailers and or truck mounted units. Their web site is www.detailguys.com. They are a franchise and there is on-going support but also ongoing fees and payments called royalties. The fees vary widely; The Detail Guys have fees of $280.00 per month for the first unit and $140.00 per month for each additional trailer. Unfortunately they are no longer franchising and instead are putting in their own units without franchisees; company owned units. I own this company. You are welcome to check out the website as it might give you some good ideas on techniques, reclaim devices, trailer configurations or detail shop layout designs if you decide to go it alone instead of buying someone else's franchise.

WOW-Wash on Wheels which is at www.washonwheels.com has fees of $400-500.00 per month per territory. Other mobile detailing franchise concepts have royalty fees from 4% to 8% of your total gross revenues. Before you lock into a lengthy contract in any franchise fixed or mobile, check it out and read up on franchising. Books on franchising can be purchased online at www.worldfranchicing.com, which has nearly every book ever written on the subject. One great book is "Franchising 101", which can also be bought at Barnes and Noble, Borders, Crown or Books a Million, I co-authored this book and it is pretty darn good. It is a must read for anyone wishing to buy a franchise in my opinion. A great a web site with franchising information is www.franchising.org , which I also happen to own. I have put up free listings of many automotive type franchises and you are welcome to come and browse. The right franchise is great, however the wrong one may be a disaster for you.

You might consider a franchise for a mobile auto detailing business, you will have to decide for yourself. What ever you decide shop around and decide if you wish to go it alone or go for a franchised unit. Think on it, best of luck and continued success whatever you decide.
