Detailing Business For Summer Job -What Packages should I offer?

Ok, so I've decided to start my own detailing business this summer before I start college this fall as my summer job. I have been detailing my car, parents cars, and friends' cars since I began to drive 2 years ago. I regularly detail and clean my ride and my friends and family seem to always notice how meticulously nice my car looks.
I have made a lot of headway on a business plan and the packages I am going to offer. I have a very good chance of having a large number of clientele.
My only question is what specific detailing packages should I offer? Any feedback is appreciated and what you think would be a good list of detailing lists. Even feedback on costs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: Detailing Business For Summer Job -What Packages should I offer?

I'm actually going to start doing that for the summer as well and I know Irf (B.P.O.D.) is a detailing master although his ride doesn't show it LOL and many other members on here

IMHO

You should offer

wash
clay
compound
polish
sealant


all for a whopping $125 because ur supplying the products, at least that's the cheapest I will charge of course for nicer rides goes up the nicer price LOL

I think depending on the size and condition of vehicle will depend on price too. Plus interior jobs I gotta price as well. Only thing now is to get a bunch of meguairs products and DA polisher

You should also include like Cleaning the yellow off of people's headlights. I'm going to start car detailing. I got a lot of tips from www.Detailingworld.co.uk I began detailing 2 years ago when I was 16. I charge about right now close to $150.

Re: Detailing Business For Summer Job -What Packages should I offer?

Lol. Every little thing helps and you could charge like $15 or $20 bucks than what it's worth. You can buy really good stuff at www.DetailedImage.com They are our vendor. I'm going to buy a nice supply soon after my Vacation so I could really make some money (I Hope).
