    Re: Question for the pro Detailers

    All great replies. Thank you. I did get a couple good ideas. I got the van about a year and half ago and with the storage with the seats and all other compartment and stuff I was curious. Been a while since I have done a detailing job and couldn’t think how much.

    Lonnie I try to keep a nice amount of brushes on hand when I do vacuum. I did make a nice a score on a vacuum. An older Tennant canister vac. Nice and quiet. Can’t half hear now because of the hours of vacuuming and polishing.

    Yup, know all about that hearing loss and impairment. I carry small foam ear plugs in my pocket so they are readily available and use them when I vacuum or use the leaf blower to dry a vehicle after a two-bucket wash. Just trying to protect the little hearing I have left (and it ain`t much!) Hearing loss is one of those "occupational hazards" of detailing, and until it happens to yourself, you do not think much about it or try to prevent it. And when it does happen, it is too late to bring back or "cure", short of hearing aids.

    As a side note, "Huh? What did you say?" is probably the number one "complaint" and start of arguments in older couples. Just sayin`!...(but not hearing! LOL)

    Yeah, I really oughta wear "ears" when using the AirWand, but I don`t "Eyes and ears!" as they say at the range...you can`t just get replacements so protect the ones you`re born with. Easy to take such things for granted until the incident that`ll "never happen" (says the guy who`s recovering from yet another emergency eye surgery).

    I charge those prices both in Boston and San Diego, both very different income categories. I also have very few people that come to me for just interior. Most people will get an interior detail when the car is in for a correction or coating or just a regular exterior package. I also didn`t start with those prices. I started quite low and worked my way up after I got some brand awareness.
