  1. Ye might try to suck out too thanks , the oil pan at bottom seems like it covered Gonna be a pain to get at .
  2. Mercedes b class 1.8 diesel, fine when driving about town but as soon as reaches 70 , excess oil warning light comes on ? Any ideas? Not changed oil myself since I’ve had it . Oil seems clean not frothy ect.
  3. Sorry, you need a wet vac and Henry is dry, get a Charles or a George. Got names mixes up
  4. I’d recommend hendry or George, you don’t really need the machine to put chemical on, get yourself a spray bottle and brush , mit do it yourself, you just need it to suck it out of seats . My advice would be to take to car wash cos they your really paying someone bout 3 pound an hour if you take into account time taken etc . But take it when it’s a rainy / dull day ,they’ll be empty and spend all day on it . Then go over any bits your not happy with yourself
  5. Ye if you make your chemicals strong I’d say will be more effective than a steam cleaner , god knows what they do for your health though
  6. I’d say steaming there’s a chance you’d do more damage than what it’s worth, same with steam cleaning exteriors , I used to use hot through our pressure washers at my car wash, if you got hot water in a chip could bubble paintwork . I’d say most inportant in doing a good job is the chemicals you use and how strong you make them . I used to use auto smart brisk , bio brisk. You can also use g101 from auto smart which cleans better I’d say but doesn’t smell as good, you have to be careful with it cos can damage leather though
  7. Don’t know many valeters who steam clean most just scrub with good upholstery cleaner and wet vac , it’s a ball ache though If you have beige seats you have to scrub every inch evenly or when it drys will be patchy will look a state
  8. Think cat x means stolen cat n means superficial damage
  9. Sorry if already been posted, what months do you find that you make the most or least sales ?
  10. Ye I work 7 days as is . I would be salesman and valeting. Its more trying to shift cars, the only 1s I currently can get for good money are cat d’s and I’ve found them hard to get rid off . Would you find the cars with high mileage but clear history go quicker?
  11. Thanks for the advice guys , gonna start with my own car and 1 more next to the wash for sale they’re both cat d though. Will see how it goes unless anyone has any new ideas of what to do with a old car sales pitch .
  12. Ye I actually have spoken to a local trader who is desperate to get on the pitch, to which was willing to go halfs on all the profits. The pitch could probably hold 50 to 70 cars . But I don’t know if it’d make enough for 2 people. Im sure people on here would know better than me . Plus if I say yes I’m stuck with him and could get trouble down the line .
  13. To be honest the main reason I’m thinking of stopping the wash is because of dealing with staff , most, if not all other washes in my area are not English and I’m pretty sure they don’t get payed decent money if any . I don’t have the connections to hire those type of staff and don’t think I’d feel comfortable Exploiting people like that . You try getting the local teens to put a shift in, turn up on time etc . The pitch is in a great location just looking for the best use of it without spending a fortune. Was considering doing painting dents myself in the back and selling cars from the front .
  14. Ye good idea Casper , as it seems a lot of the problems dealers are having is getting good priced stock . So maybe they’d be willing to take the ones I couldn’t afford . To be honest I’ve had 2 cars up for sale up there for bout a month and already had 2 people in asking me to buy their cars . That’s without a sign up .
