Over recent years, we’ve worked with many individuals starting up their own businesses, and we’re frequently asked the same question:
“What are the benefits of starting my own mobile car cleaning business?’
There are too many benefits to list, and everyone has different things that are important to them. We’ve got 25 years’ experience helping people start their own businesses, so we’ve listed the top 5 reasons why people want to start their own mobile car cleaning business below.
Maybe you spend long hours working for an average wage, you have a long commute or you feeling unmotivated by your current boss, or perhaps you simply know you have more to offer. Here is the chance to turn your knowledge of car cleaning into a full-time, profitable business.
Operating your own mobile car cleaning business has many advantages. The feedback we get most often is:
“I get so much enthusiasm from running my own business.”
Let’s look at the top 5 reasons we’ve seen over the last 25 years.
Big Demand for Mobile Car Cleaners as Customers Love The Convenience
In our experience, a key reason we’ve found that people want to start their own mobile car cleaning business is that they want a business that has potential to grow. And we are seeing this more than ever today – people’s lives are changing and becoming busier and more hectic. A mobile car cleaning company is the perfect solution to how people live their lives these days.
Some of the key benefits to the customer include the following:
- It saves people time as you visit them at their home, office or workplace.
- You can offer customized services tailored to individual needs based on budget, car type etc
- Customers are able to schedule in regular cleans, knowing this is another “chore” that has been taken care of, so they can get on with doing what they like to do.
- Quite simply, a professional clean presents the car in its best possible light and helps to maintain its value. Cars are expensive purchases and people want to make sure they are looking after them well.
James’ Home Services has helped hundreds of people just like you in setting up their businesses. Because of the growth in demand, there is also the opportunity to scale up quickly; your growth is only limited by how much you want to develop, learn and expand your skills.
People love to have a spotless, shiny cars
People are simply too busy these days to spend hours on the weekend cleaning their cars, yet everyone wants to drive around in a perfectly clean car – impressing their neighbours, friends, or work colleagues. A mobile car cleaning business is the perfect answer for today’s busy lifestyle and helps your customers maintain that perfect “good impression”. No one likes to drive around with dirty or muddy cars, so a mobile cleaning service is the perfect solution.
It Has the Potential for Healthy Income Stream to Support You and Your Family
Australia is a commuter country; just about everyone over the age of 18 has a car or vehicle of some sort. The new car market is also very healthy, with hundreds of new cars bought and shipped each week to new owners. Despite this apparent “obsession” with purchasing new cars, people simply don’t find the time to keep them well maintained. Starting this type of business which has strong demand and the potential to grow = excellent income potential for you.
It’s a recurring service – cars get cleaned, they get dirty again – so as long as people have cars and drive them, there is an ongoing need to keep them clean. It’s the perfect business model: a repeatable service offering that will be needed again and again.
Over the last 25 years of running James’ Home Services, one of the biggest motivations for people to start their own mobile car cleaning business is to generate more income. Many of our franchisees previously worked within the industry and wanted to turn their passion for cars into a full-time profession.
They felt unmotivated turning up to their tedious job every day, where regardless of how hard they worked there was only so much they could earn. They could only make what their boss was willing to pay them, and they often felt limited for opportunities and growth.
Does this sound like you? Do you feel like you’re not reaching your potential?
By working for yourself, you get to be in charge. You set your prices, manage your own schedule and pick which jobs you want to take on. How much you earn is down to how much you’re willing to work. What’s more, as the owner you get to keep all the profits, including that profit your old boss used to keep.
Your efforts, energy and passion for your work will directly relate to how much money you earn.
Save on tax
Not only that, but having your own business can help you save money on tax and increase your income even further, including the ability to have your business pay for your travel, phones, internet, home office costs or car repayments.
In this way, having your own mobile car cleaning business can dramatically increase your income and improve your financial position. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll have to work hard to make it work but you will be rewarded for your efforts.
With the right guidance and support, you can create a mobile car cleaning business that will give you the income you’ve dreamed of and enhance your lifestyle along the way.
Turn Your Passion and Hard Work into Your Profession
Whether it’s your love of cleaning or love of cars, or both, a mobile car cleaning business provides the perfect way for you to get up close with different types of cars and vehicles every day. Prestige, new, vintage, work vehicles – you name it, you’ll end up cleaning it and you’ll also get to become an expert too!
James’ Home Services provides ongoing training to all our franchisees, so you’ll always stay ahead of the game in a supportive and trusting environment. Gone are the days where someone (i.e. your old boss) tells you what to do – you can now be the expert and lead your own team.
Specialising in one industry means you’ll become a specialist at it, forcing yourself to learn. While it can be tough in the beginning and it takes time, it will pay off! These skills become invaluable throughout your life and in running your business.
There is nothing quite like the sense of accomplishment from building and managing your own business. The feeling of achievement from knowing you set yourself a goal and built a business to where you want it to be is second to none. That you’ve taken a passion of yours and turned it into a scalable, profitable business where you might even end up employing others to do the work for you is something to be proud of.
Without getting get too carried away, this is your opportunity to create something great for yourself and make an immediate difference to someone’s life. Who doesn’t love the look and feel of a freshly polished car!
You Get To Control Your Future and Be Your Own Boss
The beauty of running your own business is that it enables you to provide a more personalised service to your clients and you can focus on their individual needs.
At James’ Home Services we’ve heard hundreds of potential business owners say:
“I’m sick of working for someone else who doesn’t seem to know what they’re doing.”
We’ve also heard that they are working for companies that don’t seem to take much interest in them, and no matter how hard they work it mostly goes unnoticed. Until, in the end, they get sick of working for others and decide to take control of their lives and start their own mobile car cleaning business.
If you’re working long hours for someone without much recognition, feel like you’re not getting a chance to pursue your passion or feel like you’re stuck in a dead-end job, then starting your own mobile car cleaning business may just be for you.
Having your own business means you get to be the boss – you control your hours, find the work/life balance that suits you and, best of all, make your own decisions as to the direction of the business. And because of the nature of this type of business, it offers the freedom that only a mobile business can provide. You can easily run your business from home, using a fully equipped vehicle.
Your schedule, your hours
You get complete control over your hours and when you work. Best of all, the time and effort you put into working goes directly towards building up your OWN business, not someone else’s.
You can decide what your goals and vision for the business are. Would you like to develop a customer base only for yourself or do you have huge plans to build up a business with multiple employees and lots of clients? The best thing is that your future is in your hands and you can make your business whatever you want it to be, however it will suit you.
There is nothing quite like the feeling of achievement and satisfaction from knowing you set out to do something and all your effort and hard work has paid off.
It’s an “In-Demand” Industry With Potential to Grow and Grow
If you’ve ever gone through periods of inconsistent work or been laid off, you’ll know that feeling – the feeling of going into work every day and not knowing if you’ll have a job at the end of the day. Being employed by someone means that if they decide to make any changes to the business or don’t have enough work to keep you on, then you might find yourself without a job.
We often get feedback from franchisees that when starting their own business they are pleased to be able to use the James’ Homes Services name from day one – providing instant brand recognition.
As mentioned, Australia is a commuter society and we love our cars, which means the sky’s the limit when it comes to income potential and job stability. Your job is as secure as your business. You don’t have to worry about someone else deciding to let you go. As you increase your skills and knowledge, it goes directly towards increasing YOUR business’ potential and reputation.
Building your own business also provides security for you and your family. Due to the nature of the industry, there will be ongoing demand. When you’re working in your own business, you have a sense of ease knowing you are in control, that you have a secure job within in a network that offers training and support to help you at every step of the way.
