What’s it Like to be a Professional Car Detailer in Singapore?

Lambency Detailing

You already know that car detailers, as the name suggests, are responsible for cleaning the interiors and exteriors of cars. Their tasks and duties can range from vacuuming the carpets and polishing the windows to washing the car’s exterior and cleaning the grime in hard-to-reach areas.

While these tasks and duties may seem simple to many of us, it involves physical labour with proper coordination, dexterity, and endurance to clean cars for extended hours effectively. Attention to car detailing is also necessary to ensure quality service delivery. Hence, the title of professional car detailers.

If you’re a car enthusiast who’s looking to go into automotive trades like car detailing, know that it’s a rewarding job and one that you’re sure to get compliments for. And, if you ever wonder what goes on daily in an auto detailer’s life in his/her workshop, continue reading to find out for yourself.

Car Detailing Workshop: Facts You Didn’t Know

As previously mentioned, going into the automotive trade like car detailing can be both rewarding and exciting. However, it depends on the amount of detail you put into detailing each car that enters your car detailing workshop. Here are some of the facts that you might not know about a car detailing workshop.

1. Workload

Like any other job, the amount of work at car detailing workshops can be divided into three – the light work, the heavy work, and the intense work. The light work is fairly simple – a quick sweep on the inside with a vacuum with some washing, buffing, and waxing on the exterior to make the car shiny and seem new again.

Meanwhile, the heavy work involves getting help from another professional like a mechanic to work on dents and scrapes that need to be carefully worked out or rust that needs to be taken care of before it damages the entire car.

As for the intense work, you will usually have to work your magic to restore the car to its glory days. This can involve completely repainting the car, replacing certain parts like the side mirrors or doors, or filling in the cracks and holes. It can also involve heavy interior cleaning to remove residues, odors or other messes.

2. Workshop Appearance

If people tell you that the design of your car detailing workshop or business environment doesn’t play a role in attracting potential customers, tell them they’re wrong because appearance matters. You want car owners to feel at ease that their cars are in good hands during any of your auto detailing services.

If your customers visit your car detailing workshop for basic detailing work like washing, vacuuming and polishing, you will want to offer them a clean, attractive, and well-lit waiting area. Some food and beverages along with entertainment materials like the TV, radio, or magazines can also help them pass the time.

Should they opt for a car detailing service that takes longer than an hour or so, you can offer them a ride home or work, and then pick them up when their cars are ready. If you have an expanded accessories inventory, make sure that it is arranged attractively and in a way that prompts customers to browse.

3. Shop Layout

Some customers enjoy watching their cars being serviced, to the point that they might ask you or your team of car detailers about the products used. As many car detailing workshops are designed differently, you can accommodate your customers’ desire to watch the services via large windows or from beneath the awning outside the workshop.

You can also escort them to another area that works as a vantage point for your car detailing workshop. This will ensure their safety while allowing them to watch from afar. Hence, building on customer-centric business philosophy.

4. Team Experience

Unlike any other job that requires specialised education, car detailing needs no educational background. However, it requires physical labour and continuous training and experience to ensure quality service and customer satisfaction.

This is because when a customer comes into your car detailing workshop for any of the services, they will likely want to know how skilled you and your team are when it comes to car detailing. After all, this automotive business builds and grows on customer satisfaction with service delivery.
