Auto Detailing Service Menu – Every Pro Needs One!

Many newbie’s just starting out always ask what they should include in a professional auto detailing service menu. Detail King has outlined below what a potential service menu would possibly include complete with price ranges.

First of all be sure your auto detailing service menu cover displays your logo, business name, phone number, email address, web site and your important social media channels like Facebook, you tube and Instagram. If you accept credit cards you should mention that also and possibly even show the specific credit card logos that you honor.

In addition to displaying your company name and logo you may also want to include a “Tag Line.” A tag line is original and unique like your brand. Your tag line should only be between 3 and 6 words and appeal to your target market. Your tag line should focus on your core services and should be memorable, catchy, or even somewhat surprising. You can trademark your tagline if you choose to do so and which is recommendable especially if you plan to franchise your business someday.

The main components of your service menu should include: Exterior Services, Interior services, Value Packages and have an a la carte section for value added services. Listed below are services that you may want to consider offering. We like to think that a service menu should be crafted with the KISS principle in mind “Keep It Simple Stupid.” Don’t offer too many services at first because it may confuse the customer and slow their decision making process. Shown below are a few different ways to display the content of your services; paragraph form, bullets and a combination of both. Detail King does offer various Auto Detailing Flyer and Service Menu Templates.

Exterior Detailing Services

All exterior detailing services include a hand wash and scrubbing of the vehicles exterior surfaces. Wheel wells, wheels, tires, grill, bumpers, molding and trim are all scrubbed and pre cleaned. We also “clay” the paint to remove invisible environmental pollutants from the surfaces. Every exterior detailing service also receives tire dressing and a complimentary interior vacuuming, dash board dusting and cleaning of windows and mirrors. Price ranges are based on size and condition of vehicle.  We use Detail King professional grade products which are 100% biodegradable and environmentally friendly.

Polymer Sealant – Our Poly Seal is our best paint protection service we offer and excellent for new vehicles. Protection will last up to 12 months. Poly Seal lasts longer than wax or polish because it bonds an invisible layer of protection to the paint with a process called molecular crosslinking. Our Poly Seal will yield a beautiful dazzling shine! Re seals should be done annually and we will contact you 30 days prior to the anniversary date of your initial Poly Seal application. Price Range: $129 – $169 – Annual Re Seals: $69 – $109

Buff ‘N Wax – Our Buff ‘N Wax process includes a 2 step buffing and polishing procedure to remove light scratches and oxidation from the painted surfaces. A generous amount of Cherry Carnauba Wet Wax is then machine applied to protect and provide a wet look finish. Protection will last up to 6 months. If scratches and other paint imperfections are severe but repairable by compounding the painted surfaces prior to the polishing procedure an extra cost could be incurred. Price Range: $89 – $129 – Compounding – $10 – $50

Wash ‘N Wax – This service is ideal for a vehicle that has very little paint imperfections. No buffing or polishing is included with our Wash ‘N Wax. A generous amount of Cherry Carnauba Wet Wax is machine applied to all painted surfaces. This service is recommended for short term protection and is popular to have completed just before winter and as a cosmetic maintenance service in between complete details and poly re seals. Price Range: $49 – $89
