Obviously, mobile detailing and mobile auto services such as on-site car washing are alive and well in Arizona. Phoenix is the largest city in Arizona, and it is amazing sometimes how many people are operating these mobile service businesses. Of course, the big money tends to be in the outlining suburban areas around the city. One of those suburban areas is Chandler Arizona, and it is a most excellent place to run a mobile car wash. Okay so, let’s talk about this and let me explain why.
Before retirement, we did have a franchisee in Chandler Arizona, and they always did quite well. https://shinesdetailing.com.au/For instance on Chandler Boulevard there are two extremely large corporations with thousands of employees where we washed cars; Intel and Motorola. Further down the street is an Airpark, where wealthy individuals actually park their airplanes in their garage/hangar and live at their own private airport. They always need their aircraft detailed, and they also own high-end antique and exotic automobiles.
When people think about mobile car washing they also think about car dealerships. Along I-10 there is a huge Auto Mall, which sells nearly every popular brand of car. There is competition for lot washing, but new and used car detailing is also a significant business. These are very busy auto dealerships, and they have an abundance of work, and challenges with a shortage of labor in the area at times.
Speaking of labor, what about now during the economic recovery? Is there decent labor available? Yes there is, and that’s a good thing, but in the heat of the summer, in the off-season, it is harder to find people who wish to work outside on days when the temperature is 110 to 115-degrees Fahrenheit, and even in the evenings or the middle of the night the temperature some days does not get less than 100 in the pitch black of night.
There are also many industrial areas in and around Chandler Arizona, and it isn’t hard to get into these companies and talk with the owners or the executives running them, and one can get a list from the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, or the Business Journal’s “book of lists” to find out whom to talk to at each company.
Lastly, there is a nice little suburban area on one side of Chandler which is where more wealthy folks live. Ahwatukee is also a smart place to clean and detail cars. High end shopping, classy small office parks and office buildings, even medical centers – plus not more than a few miles away are huge corporate buildings with 100s of employees.
According to WikiPedia “Ahwatukee is an L-shaped neighborhood of Phoenix, Arizona bordered on the north by South Mountain Park and Baseline Road, on the east by Interstate 10,” but it is so much more than that really, it’s a whole community and solid middle class neighborhood. If you’re going to wash and detail cars in Chandler, you definitely want to do business in this neighborhood as well. We always did well there ourselves. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on.
