    IMO, unless you are primarily marketing yourself to concours vehicles, I would think of something else.

    Same as above. Something with "detailing" in it seems to work the best. I know everyone uses it, but it works.

    Re: Business name input?

    If you do name your detailing business /enterprise as a domain name (for e-commerce or internet advertising), I think in the state of New York you will need to register it with the local tax authorities.
    Here are some names:
    (your first name(`s)) Detail Shop
    (your first name(`s)) Detailing Spa (or Salon)
    Supreme Detailing
    Detailing Done Right
    Car Shine Shop
    Infinite Gloss Detailing
    Immaculate Detailing
    (my favorite)
    Diamond Detailing
    Show Car Detailing
    First-Place Detailing
    Best in the Queens Detailing (your locale)
    Value-Rite Detailing
    (if you want to be budget-conscious or cost-effective)
    Detailing by (your first Name)
    Extreme Detailing
    Mirror-Like Detailing
    (Meguiar`s owns a similar name (Mirror Brite), so name copyright infringement may come into play!)
    Ultimate/Ultra/Infinite Reflections Detailing (but I think someone else has this name!)
    Clean-n-Shine Detailing
    Pretty-Darn Quick Detailing
    (Don`t use PDQ, as it is a trade name of a car wash equipment manufacturer from my area)

    One aspect of business names is avoid using trade names associated with detailing chemical or equipment companies OR similar-sounding names or initials of detailing businesses in your area OR those detailing business`s names listed in this forum (and there are a lot of them!)

    use something with your name ( first or last).. people want to remember the person doing the work not some fancy name blunt enough :

    I wouldn`t want "Rehab" in the name of a Detailing business. Not sure I`d want it in any company name given the, uhm...times we`re living in.

    And yeah..."Concours" is very niche-specific, at least to people who are very serious about that scene.

    You could simplify the vocabulary to something as simple as:

    Competition Corrections
    Exhibition Corrections

    "Correcting your vehicle to a Competition finish"

    I agree with having your name included. Have fun with it.

    I was a little bit worried about that as well. Can I do good paint correction? Yes. Am I ready to do an actual Concours vehicle? As much as it hurts to say it, No. I think I was thinking too far into my career when thinking of the name.

    Thank you for all the suggestions. I`m going to play around with some of the words and hopefully come up with something.

    That`s exactly what I was thinking when I first came up with the name. I thought I`d give it a chance to see what others thought.

    Re: Business name input?

    Regarding using variations on the word "Correction", I doubt that one potential customer in a thousand would know what that`s supposed to mean. Sure, *WE* know...but the average person who pays others to do the detailing probably doesn`t. Ditto for other examples of Detailer`s Jargon, just use words that average people will understand.

    Tc99m- Keying in the above makes me feel like I oughta say "no hard feelings" or something, since you used "Corrections"...

    No Problem! I actually had a nice laugh at your apology.

    That is the same point I was trying to make with "simplify the vocabulary ". You just said it more hmmmm "eloquently".
