How to Start a Steam Car Wash Auto
Detailing Business with a Professional Car Steam Cleaner

Creating Your Business Plan

Planning is the key to success; use it!

An essential step for the success of your new venture is to plan it. There are many mobile car detailing business plan templates out there, but you can create your own. You will want to think about the following:

-  What kind of steam car wash business do you want to operate?
- What services do you want to offer?
- What legal structure do you want to implement?
- What tools will you need?
- How you will promote yourself?

The main question you have to ask yourself is, "Do I want to operate a mobile business or shop-based business"?

Stationary Shop VS. Mobile Business - Which is Better?

When it comes to steam car wash businesses, you have two main options. You can either operate from a fixed location or through a mobile car wash van or auto detailing trailer. Both have their respective advantages and differences. So which is better? It depends on your goals, market, and preferences.

The Respective Advantages and Disadvantages

One of the main advantages of having a shop is that you will not have to travel to your clients' locations and lose time in traffic during rush hour. You also won't have to deal with the hassle that specific on-site areas can present.

Secondly, having your location will allow you to increase the range of services that you offer and open the door to high-margin services that may not always be available when performing mobile steam details. These can include paint corrections, ceramic car coatings, paint protection films, and window tinting. Unless your client has a dust-free and climate control garage - which is rare - you will not be able to offer these services at your client's house or office.

Now, having a shop has its drawdown too, the main one being the increased over-head due to having to pay for rent and utilities. Setting up and taking care of a shop is also more resource-intensive than taking care of a van as you may have to install epoxy floors, lighting, air conditioning, and maintain all equipment mentioned above in tip-top-shape removing dirt and grime after serviced are performed.

On the other side, starting and operating a mobile steam car wash business is a low-cost venture. It's for that specific reason that most entrepreneurs getting into the steam washing business begin with a mobile van.

But the advantages don't stop at the low upfront cost and operating costs. In the age of Uber, InstaCart, and Postmates, an increasing number of consumers are requesting at home services which makes mobile car detailing service increasingly popular amongst consumers. Offering such a service is convenient for your customers and is sure to tap into increasing demand.

One must remember that not everyone has an indoor garage or even a driveway for you to operate in. Also, some consumers will want services that you may not be able to offer at their location, such as window tinting or paint protection film. However, most mobile steam cleaning detailers often find a suitable site to deliver higher-end services such as nano coatings or paint corrections.

Another take is why limit yourself to one option? If your budget allows it, offering both on-site and off-site steam car detailing services is guaranteed to cater to the full spectrum of consumers looking to clean and sanitize, restore and protect their vehicle.

Once that is decided, you have to move on to choosing the services your steam car washing company will offer.

Legal Structure & Requirements for a Steam Car Wash Auto Detailing Business

The most popular business structure amongst professional steam auto detailing business owners is "sole-proprietorship". It's popular because it's the simplest legal business entity you can form. In most states, there is no filling required other than your yearly taxes when setting up a sole-proprietorship company.

However, you may want to create a Limited Liability Company (LLC) or an S-Corporation to both save on taxes and limit your liabilities. The LLC will be less complicated to develop than an S-Corp, but it will require more paperwork than a sole proprietorship.
