Have you ever wondered how the vehicles on used car lots all look so good? They have all been given a once over by an expert in auto detailing, known formally as “dealer preparation”.
Experts in auto detailing are highly prized because they turn low-value cars and trucks into much higher value reconditioned vehicles. Or you can strike out on your own by establishing your own auto detailing business, an ideal choice if you have an entrepreneurial spirit and have always wanted to run your own business. You will enjoy seeing the smiles on the face of customers when they see the results of your auto detailing.
