Re: Detailing Business For Summer Job -What Packages should I offer?
I did the same thing the summer before college as well (2 yrs ago) for me and it worked out great! They key Id say form my experience is marketing and begin able to do a good job in a reasonable amount of time. i had business cards made up (like 4"x3") with some thick stock. Had a picture of a yellow Ferrari 360 on it w/ the package I offered beneath. Dropped those around town and talked to a few buddies of mine who own mechanics shops, car dealerships etc and got hooked up form them. All in all a great deal, I did maybe 50 cars over the summer @ an avg of $100/car for a full detail (wash/wax, wheels, tires interior etc) and you can do the math haha. Def use detialed image, i love their stuff, wouldn't touch my car with anything else!
As far as your package, have a starter option say for like $40/$50 which would be a full wash and interior detail. Then you could have a performance package for like $75/$80 which would be that plus a nice compound/wax type of deal. Wheels/tires are a must on all cars, but you can have ad ons like I did like sealers, polishes, interior leather cleaning, carpet cleaning etc etc. add on are great and at $5/$10 a piece you'll be able to bill nicely for some simple stuff. Obviously your not out to rip people off but if you do a good job w/ some good products that actually last, you should be making $30+/hour so look at it like that. Good luck with project, get the word out now!
