Mobile Auto Detailing Business in Kansas City - A Good Business to Start


Visitors: 291

Recently a gentleman, interested in starting a mobile car washing or mobile auto-detailing business in Kansas City called upon me for a little advice - Namely is even a viable business? Well if you consider the number of high-tech office parks and large corporations both downtown and in the suburbs it makes sense as a target market.

For instance, the Sprint World Head Quarters is a huge campus. I remember sitting in the Starbucks there once and watched more SUVs and BMWs drive by in an hour than in Los Angeles. Olathe and Lennox is excellent too of course. Really, those are the gravy places to wash and you need to get in with the property managers because there are so many fly-by-night competitors, many:

  • Have no insurance,
  • Pollute storm drains
  • Are a plight on the high-end office tech parks
  • Do not adhere to scheduling
  • Offer less than adequate quality
Indeed, I am not as familiar with the Missouri side as the Kansas side, but I imagine there are semi-suburbs worthy of mention there too. Especially judging from St. Louis and the West Side high-end growth and the IL side over the river. You see many cities are similar in America, they grow a certain way - after a while, it becomes second hat, you just know going in.

Why not clean all those cars that sit all by themselves in the parking lots for 7-8 hours per day? Well that is how our business started and it worked wherever we took it. Customers love mobile car washing and detailing companies, but it is of course up to you to remain completely efficient; labor supply, fuel issues, travel time, you have to pay attention and have a battle plan to win.
