After detailing shop fire, benefits planned for owners

SANFORD, N.C. — Recent fires destroyed five businesses, including a detail shop, leaving owners with nothing.

SANFORD, N.C. — Benefits have been planned for owners of businesses destroyed in recent fires, according to the Sanford Herald.

Kelly and Terrie Gibson, owners of detail shop Kelly’s Clean Cars, had invested $7,000 worth of equipment in their business, and nothing was insured, said the article.

There will be a fundraiser this weekend selling barbecue chicken plates and raffle tickets.

Kelly Gibson said if there’s a job to do to give him an income source, he will do it. “I can’t stay down forever. If I’ve got to do a job I don’t love to do, there’s no shame in that,” he said in the article.

An auto auction and restaurants were also damaged by fire. Some were insured, but employees are also displaced. Future benefits have been planned to help them.

To say detailers need to be cautious when dealing with a car’s paint finish is an understatement. It is a constant disappointment to me when I visit detail operations around the country and the world to see how they are correcting, polishing or protecting paint finishes. In many cases it is downright frightening when you consider the cost of a paint finish on a Mercedes, BMW, Porsche or most luxury and exotic vehicles could cost as much as 10% of the vehicle’s value or more.
