What should I be charging my customers for a detail
STARTING DETAILER AVERAGE COST OF DETAIL
Q: How much should I charge for a complete detail?
Prices will vary depending on the job. It is always important to
explain to your customer what the services available are. A wash
followed by a clay and polish has a countrywide average between
$140-220 for a retail client and $75-$105 for a wholesale detail for
a high volume used car dealer. Be prepared to charge allot more
depending on the condition of the paint, the amount of time required
and if the final steps require a sealant or a high gloss paste wax
the prices will be much higher.
