That's true, but if you were to get insured then you won't be as nervous
I'm not sure how much insurance is, but I assume you can pay it if you just get one client a month that wants a detail
Do car washes as your main thing and then offer a detailing service as an upsell for that same day or for future engagements.
Make some coupons that say something like "25% off your next full detail from us!" And add your website on the coupon and business name.
So something like this:
"This coupon is good for 25% off your next appointment with (Insert Company Name Here)
(Insert Website Here)
(Insert fine print here)"
And in the fine print be sure to put stuff like:
*Coupon only good transactions over $50.
*This Coupon can not be combined with other coupons.
*Only one coupon can be used per appointment.
*This coupon is for a one time use only.
You can also try to sell a type of membership for like $67 a month. I haven't seen anyone doing this yet
You can set them up for like 2 car washes a month with waxing and vacuuming of the inside. And every third month they can get a full detail. The full detail can be a good selling point. You can add in there that a good full detail normally costs around $200 and they will be paying $200 - $300 for 4-6 washes, 4-6 vacuuming, and 1 full detail. If you were to add all that up it could be...
4-6 washes/wax at $25 each = $100 - $150
4-6 internal cleaning at $15 each = $60 - $90
Full Detail = $200
Normally they would be paying $360 - $440 for this service. And right now they can pay just $67 per month.
This will save them $159 - $239
If you do this, be sure to highlight the savings like I did above.
Play around with it and split test some ideas.
