Mobile detailing is a much smaller investment than that of a traditional carwash, and the article notes an initial investment can be around $68,000.

The quality of the work, notes the blog, can impress customers. "Some people are actually amazed when they find out that they can have their cars detailed as they work in their offices or shop in the mall – especially if you use technology to your advantage, like DetailXPerts’ patent-pending steam cleaning method."

A ballpark figure the article gives for a mobile detailer is four vehicles detailed a day, for an average of $150 a vehicle; this would mean revenue of $600 a day, or $18,000 a month.

It can be risky investing in a fad, and while mobile detailing is still new, it has become well established in the marketplace, states the blog.
