Showroom Condition With Diamondbrite Car

After making what is likely to be one of the most extravagant purchases of your entire life, you are right to be proud of your new set of wheels. New or second-hand, you push the thought to the back of your mind that your car will probably never look this good again. You try to forget that the foreseeable future holds only scratches, chips, sun bleaching, acid rain erosion and bird poo damage for your beautiful paintwork. Wouldn’t it be great if your car remained in its showroom condition for years to come? Well now it can!

Don’t dismiss paintwork scratches, chips or erosion as inevitable. Spillages on your upholstery and dirt on your carpets don’t have to be a ‘fact of life’! Manufacturers have developed high-tech car protection systems to keep your car in showroom condition. Protect your paintwork, wheels, alloys and soft furnishings with a professionally applied protection system. Car exterior and interior protection won’t only keep your car looking great for years to come, but help preserve its value if you choose to sell in the future. Washing and cleaning your car will be less strenuous and be required less often, saving you time, money and effort!

Diamondbrite is a product which makes preserving your car’s appearance and value effortless. A system like Diamondbrite, Supagard or Autoglym LifeShine can be applied by trained experts in your own driveway, in a specialist centre, or wherever is convenient for you. Suitable for any make and model, these protection systems usually involve an temporary paintwork glaze being applied and removed, leaving an invisible protective layer which will guard against scratches, chips and erosion for years to come. Wheel protector, and carpet and upholstery protector are included in your protection package, as is a warranty and aftercare pack. Independent specialists apply the same top brands just as professionally as car dealerships – but for a much lower price.

Trusted systems like Diamondbrite are a real investment for your vehicle. The cost of applying the system will be returned as the value of your car is preserved and you are able to leave longer between washes. And all of this while enjoying a car which looks just as great as the day you purchased it! So, if you want to keep your car looking showroom-new, make the sensible choice and ask for a Diamondbrite protection system. Your car (and your wallet) will thank you for it!

Their mobile team of approved technicians can apply Diamondbrite in your driveway, at addresses across the UK, or in their Leamington Spa or London centres.

There Is More Volume In Multi-Tenant Buildings Than At Corporations

They will look at the parking lot, realize the company will give them an exclusive to the washing and detailing, and they think they’re in fat city, and they’re going to get rich. It doesn’t exactly work that way, and let me explain why.

First, you must realize that only a small percentage of the employees are going to want to have services each and every week, and many of the employees who own those cars will only want service every other week. Depending on your price points people may forgo the cleaning of their car, and only get their car cleaned once a month, by then it is much dirtier, and it takes you more time anyway, therefore you are not making quite the profit you thought you might.

Next, I would submit to you that you can get more business out of a multi-tenant buildings than you can just parking your detailing rig at one large corporation. Not long ago, I was challenged by an auto detailer on this point and rightfully so he asked me; “Why?”

Well, it’s hard to say exactly, but I have many theories on this having worked with Standard and Central parking services in a number of downtown metro-areas, park-n-flies, and also at all the large corporate offices. My thinking is that if you can send someone into an office with a clip-board and sign-up sheet, then if one person signs up, generally you get two, then two more.

Then when you take the keys back others want it too. Then it becomes a regular deal, “people talking about it at the water cooler” motif. Now then, in Las Vegas, Tunica, Laughlin, and at the Scottsdale and Coachella Valley Indian Casinos we did well giving a tip to the valets for making the sale and parking the cars in car wash row.

These are real issues, and must be considered. Now without pulling rank on you, or telling you that you are wrong, and I am right, let me just explain that before I retired I was franchising mobile auto detailing units around the country, also mobile car wash units. Our franchisees have cleaned cars in over 450 cities in 23 states. This is just a reality, and how things work. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.

How to Avoid the Industry Cowboys?

When the nozzle automatically clicks into the off position he knows his vehicle is full to the top with fuel and he pays at the forecourt shop. He returns to his vehicle and turns on the ignition, the engine starts but sounds rough. Nick puts it down to the cold damp morning and drives away from the forecourt. As he is driving the vehicle engine is starting to sound worse until he comes to a juddering halt at a busy junction and the engine cuts out altogether. There is just enough room to one side of his vehicle to allow other drivers to pass as Nick tries to get his vehicle started again, but without any luck. He then has a moment of recall and realises what may have happened, with a feeling of impending gloom he checks his fuel station receipt and confirms his suspicion that he has filled up with vehicle with the wrong fuel type. He has put unleaded petrol into his vehicle instead of diesel.

At this point, Nick is about 500 metres away from the forecourt and he can’t risk leaving the vehicle where it is because it’s in a dangerous position. As he is thinking about what to do, a bus arrives behind him and there is not enough room for it to pass safely so, he has to push the vehicle to the right to make enough room leaving his vehicle in the middle of the junction with traffic manoeuvring around him. He checks his smart phone which has some charge in it so he calls his roadside assistance company who tell him that they can be with him within an hour as they are very busy so, Nick says he will call them back if he needs to. He then quickly searches the internet for help. He enters the search phrase “wrong fuel in car Gloucester” and chooses a website at random from the page as he is conscious that he could run out of charge at any moment. The site is for a company who claim that they will come out to the vehicle and remove the wrong fuel. They will then replace the fuel with the correct type and send you on your way for a small charge. This looks ideal to Nick and he calls the number and speaks to someone who says a van will be with him in 30 minutes.

Monday 13th April 2015 7.45 a.m. – The Long Wait for the Wrong Guy

An hour later there is still no sign of the wrong fuel removal company and Nick is causing a major headache for the other motorists at the junction. Eventually, at 8 a.m. a scruffy, beaten up old van pulls up behind him and the driver sits in the van apparently in the middle of a heated phone call. After 10 minutes or so, when Nick is beginning the think that the van driver is not his assistance but just a random driver who has stopped behind him, the occupant of the van gets out. He’s wearing a dirty, torn tracksuit and a baseball cap and speaks to Nick in a thick Eastern European accent that he can barely understand.
