Who Makes a Good Detailer?

If you consider yourself a car guy or car girl, this is one of the leading traits that indicate detailing might be right for you. I find that those who have a love affair with vehicles have a greater drive for success than those who don’t.
Detailing is a heck of a lot more than just slapping some wax on a car. Truth be known, proper detailing can be very hard work. Here are some of the successful traits that great detailers have…
  • Understand that detailing without good business skills is a weakness that needs to be addressed.
  • Realize that detailing is hard, physical work and that to operate at the top levels, one needs to be in good physical shape and stay healthy.
  • Know that pro-level detailing requires outstanding people skills.
  • Commit to long-term dedication and recognize that building a successful business takes time, as does building a solid set of detailing skills.
  • Have a never-give-up attitude and know that success has no room for quitters.
  • Are comfortable using power tools.
  • Engage in learning new skills and continuing education.
