Day by day, you can see the number of vehicles is getting bigger and bigger right!. You also can see it that most car owners do not like to clean their cars due to their busy lifestyle.
These are few good reasons which might push you to start your own car wash business whether you reside in Nigeria, India, USA, UK, Philippines, Kenya, California, Dubai, Pakistan, Lagos, Australia or anywhere in the World. Now, what do u need to start a car wash business at your place, i have mentioned it clearly as follows:
STEP 1: BUSINESS PLANNING
Writing a business plan is necessary in order to keep things to move on as you want(you want to achieve success right). Just like every business needs a business plan to keep things going on successful track, similarly in case of a your car wash business, you will have to write a good car wash business plan. What you must and how can you write your car wash business plan, my previous guide is much useful
STEP 2: REGISTER YOUR BUSINESS
Once you come up with your car wash business plan, it is time to know what are the necessary legal documents and permits required for your business. Search out your local respective legal authorities to secure your business license, permits, Tin number etc.
STEP 3: FIND YOUR LOCATION
Identifying and picking a good location would play a major role in the success of your business. It is a common man’s sense that setting up a car wash business on a highway roadside is what will set your success.
STEP 4: ESTIMATE STARTUP COST
How much startup cost you will have to invest in to start your car wash business is the fourth step. What you have to do is to calculate how much money is required for business registration, rent, car wash supplies, salaries, tools & equipment etc and accordingly look for the best financing option(bank or investor or self finance) to get your required capital.
STEP 5: BUY CAR WASH EQUIPMENT
To be able to deliver your car wash service, you must ensure to buy the most quality tools such as pressure washer, air compressor, microfibers, air blower, rotary buffer, chamois etc
STEP 6: HIRE SOME EMPLOYEES
In case you want to self serve your customer, then it is not required to add your costs by hiring employees. But if you want to keep few employees, hire them on who is well trained and skillful basis.
Step 7: Promote your Car wash Business
I always push entrepreneurs to look out the most effective advertising mediums(such as TV channel,local newspaper, banner etc) in their areas so that costs as well as the attention of potential customers can be caught. So you also have to apply same for car wash business when it comes to advertising your business.
