I’m Dan. An 18 year old apprentice Skoda technician With a love for all things cars Especially Volkswagen 😆
29th April 2016
Hi guys. Does anyone run/own their own detailing business? It’s something I’d like to do. I’m really into cars, at the minute I’ve got an apprenticeship with Skoda as a technician. I really enjoy cleaning my car as well but I’m not sure I want to be a technician forever. I have a few questions.
1.)What kind of equipment will I need to set up?
2.) roughy how much money might I need to set up?
3.) is it something I can do at weekends and evenings or will I have to do it 24/7 to make profit?
4.) is it a profitable business?
5.) what kind of insurance will I need in the UK?
6.) is a van necessary doing mobile valeting?
7.) would I be able to offer additional services such as basic maintance- (health checks, lube services e.c.t) or would this mean I need additional insurance?
Hey, I have a Volkswagen Up! 1.0 3 cylinder.
Recently I’ve noticed what I thought was a slight shudder through the clutch pedal at low speeds/when it was pressed in. And then I felt it (not as much) without the clutch depressed at low speeds. But it is more noticeable when holding down the clutch. This isn’t all the time, it’s just when I’m putting the clutch down to come to a stop. I’ve had a look underneath and I can’t see anything obvious moving about or any obvious leaks.
There is a protective metal piece that has fallen off inside the front bumper I thought it could be like that but then again that wouldont explain the shudder through the clutch pedal and I’m sure that’s always been like that.
Would reving a car with the clutch depressed cause any real damage to a car? In the short or long term?
