Summary of Operation: Autosheen is a successful mobile valeting specialist, serving regular, repeat order customers in the growing automotive, marine and leisure sectors. Autosheen also offers highly specialised paint defect restoration services for motor vehicles and boats plus the highly acclaimed Tribos paint protection system. The franchise is aimed at the prestige market place resulting in high order values and customer loyalty. This market is also the most resistant to the economic slowdown. Franchisees have continued to grow their business despite recession and new starters continue to rewrite the Autosheen record books.
Affordability: Franchisees need only £5.5K to get started, subject to a good credit rating. Our strong relationship with the banks will help you secure the rest.
Profitability: Franchisees can earn over £1000 per week, including income from lucrative national contracts. In addition, you will benefit from low overheads as franchisees operate from leased Mercedes Vito vans – no premises or staff are required. (Although you may decide to recruit employees to help you cope with increasing demand for your services as your business grows.)
Enjoyability: Franchisees report huge job satisfaction in delivering a premium service, highly rated by customers, who invariably use them on a regular basis and recommend them to others.
