Dealership expands its retail detailing operation

JARVIS, ONTARIO, CANADA — A used car dealership here built a new, larger building to house its fast-growing detail shop.

JARVIS, ONTARIO, CANADA — A used-car dealership here built a larger building across the street from their business to expand detailing operations, Sachem.ca reported.

The June 5 article stated that the retail location will be called Squeaky Clean Car Care. The new building allows the detail operation to double their production, working on five to six vehicles at a time.

“The building we had before there was just too small, we could only do two or three cars at a time,” Ernie Bigelow, supervisor, said in the article. “Basically anything that rolls or drives, we can clean it up for you.”

The business, which has two full-time detailers, also brought in new equipment including an ozonating system. This system removes odors from ventilation systems.

The car lot had been detailing cars pretty much since it opened, and the new signage led to more clients taking notice. Bigelow noted that he was sometimes seeing five to six new clients a week.

Bigelow also recommended proper cleaning practices for certain car models. Some newer fabrics may be damaged by the incorrect use of cleaning products.
