Learn the craft

You want to learn as much as you can about how to properly wash and detail all different kinds of vehicles from motorhomes and vans to passenger cars and motorcycles, you don't want to be put in the position of denying a potential customer due to a lack of expertise. Luckily, there are many ways you can learn what you need to learn. 

You can take a job at a car wash and detailing business and learn while you continue earning money you can save to put toward the start of your own company. However, before you take such a job in a related industry, always make sure you don't sign anything that would prevent you from starting your own business in a similar industry for a specific period of time. 

You can also learn from a person who works in the industry and is willing to teach you, either as a favor or for a fee. You can find an endless amount of information including videos on the Internet that you can access for free of charge to continue learning more. 

Don't forget you will also need to know how to run your business properly. You may want to take classes at the local community college that include things like business accounting, business management, and marketing and advertising. 

Get the equipment you need

Before you open for business, you need to have everything you need to begin washing and detailing vehicles of all types. You need a trailer for your tanks, generator, pressure washer, vacuum equipment, wet and dry shop vac, truck-mounted sprayer, chemicals, rags, and all of the other equipment and supplies that you will need to bring with you when you go out on a car washing and detailing job. 


Once you are trained in how to properly wash and detail vehicles, you have learned how to run your business, and you have purchased all of the car washing and detailing equipment, you will be ready to open for business. You want to have a website people can go to in order to learn of your services and to contact you. Also, ads in direct mailers and local community magazines and papers can be helpful. Make sure you always carry business cards on you as well and give them out to anyone who may ever need your services.
