    anybody here does car washing on the side with window cleaning? I think it take about 7-10 mins to clean the outside and you can charge about 6 quid. Not sure if its possible to use wfp on cars.

    Sounds like too much aggro for £6.

    Well ! Im washing my van with it , but because its a Dark color , i found Out that pure water leaves a lot of dirt marks from the brush . Got a soapy bucket and a handbrush for the dirty work and wfp to rinse . I know a couple of Windies with white vans and they have great results washing with only wfp . But i wouldt wash cars commercially , Think of the lawsuit if anything gets in the brush and scratches ! :confused:

    I do valeting.

    There's no six quid cleans though lol

    I charge between 40 - 150

    The most popular is the full valet at 60-70 quid taking about 3 hrs.

    It's harder work than windows and less money but it's ok I suppose.

    Mate theres a lad that charges £2.5k and up per valet and he is flat out look him up on youtube.
    When I owned Pro Valet back in Jersey we started at £160 up. The local Meec dealer used to use us for all it's pre delivery preperation valets and they were £450 a pop.
    Do it right and do it for the right clients and there is some real monies to be had.
