    quick question, you mentioned that you don’t mind using your customer’s water or electricity.
    how do you go about asking them to use these? i’m trying to start my own biz but i don’t have a water tank or even want to purchase one.

    I do detailing in Nashville TN and its surrounding cities. What kills me is when people have completely nasty, destroyed cars and they expect it to come out completely perfect when it’s just not possible. What’s your view point on how to tell them that that’s the best it will get? Also the people I deal with get really weird about using their water and power. One person even asked me why are you charging that much if I’m using their power and water. Some people just don’t understand smh.

    So now my rag has chemicals in it, That I now absorbed into my skin/system. I don’t care cause… gloves are unmanly or I did not know it effected my health in this/that way, and so on. I spray it then breath it in, I did not know it/chemicals influenced this or that. Learn and apply or naturally die earlier, than if protected.

    Your definition of “over-delivering” to me, is just doing a complete job..
    That said, I appreciate the “over-delivering”. Most people hope you don’t see that stuff when you get back in the car. I’m about to start my own side detailing business. I’m offering pretty much everything but full on paint correction. Not doing that until I get more experience. I’ve been watching your videos a lot lately. I do like your attention to detail. I have high standards for my own work and I have been in customer service industry a long time. This is my first go at my own business. Thanks for the videos!

    You’re outdoors in SoCal. How do you prevent airborne dust, sand, leaves, insects, etc. from marring the finish?

    Hi Darren just want to say thanks for your awesome videos. I have been detailing off and on since I was 15 “now 33” mostly my own and friends cars. At the beginning of January I decided to do it as a Business. I’m super excited and nervous but your videos have really helped me take this to the next level. I’m currently working a full time job and opening business on Saturday mornings. Any ideas on how to make the best out one day a week for now? I’m already booked 3 weeks out as well.

    Hello, Darren. One thing I learned and implemented into my routine in cleaning a car is to start on the inside first, so that way the dust will settle onto the vehicle, and that you can easily wash a dirtier car. Right on for being on top of that! Your videos are great btw. Thank you for sharing.
