Tricks to Keeping Your Interior Clean this Winter

Tricks to Keeping Your Interior Clean this Winter

Steve’s Blog: Tricks to a Clean Interior Ultragloss Founder, Steve Marble, recently posted a new blog about keeping the interior of your vehicle clean during the harsh winter months.  During the winter, the interior of your vehicle takes a beating from the sleet, snow, salt, and general grime.  In order to keep your interior clean, Steve writes: While I’m grateful that we enjoyed a white holiday season, I’m ready for the snow to be gone. The sleet, snow, and salt are tracked into our homes and vehicles leaving messy slop across floors, embedded into carpets, and wherever else they work their way into. My wife, Annette, and I are always telling our kids to wipe their feet. This is more challenging when entering our vehicles. I taught my kids a trick when they get into my truck. They climb in and spin their legs out of the car, click their feet together a couple of times to knock most of the snow from their boots. It’s not a perfect plan, but it helps reduce the amount of gunk getting into my ride. For the best results, combating the wear and tear of salt/snow/sleet: rubber mats come in handy. Aftermarket rubber mats such as Weather Tech® and Husky Liners® have been the most reliable for me. These types of rubber liners are nice because once they fill up with water, you can dump it out when it’s conventient for you—Like when you’re pumping your gas or getting out of you car after a long day’s work.  Continue Reading…...

Mobile Franchise Business Model in an In-Demand Industry

Mobile Franchise Business Model in an In-Demand Industry

Cars are not going anywhere.  Automotive dealership franchises are quite costly (but they can make money).  How do automotive dealerships make good money?  By offering their customer competitive rates.  There is not a whole lot of “wiggle room” on a new car: but used cars (and used car dealerships) can be highly profitable.  Why?  There’s a chance to expand the profit margin.  What do dealerships need in order to increase their profit margins?  A quality used car with little investment. Used car prices have been on the rise, a great deal due to the recession.  There has been a decrease in the number of new cars made (especially in 2009-2011).  According to the National Automotive Dealers Association (2012), the decline in luxury cars produced in this period has lead to a rise in their used value.  Luxury used car prices have increased by as much as 9% over the past year.  There is anticipation that the values for used car will decline, but NADA analyst reports pricing will: “remain at historically high levels through the end of the year”. How does Ultragloss fit into this picture?  Ultragloss is a mobile franchise that services automotive dealerships.  We offer them a low-cost service that improves the appearance of the vehicles on their lot which raises the value (and the price) of the vehicle.  It’s really quite simple and it doesn’t matter where used car values are.  Either way, we save our clients money by performing repairs that help them increase their profit margins. Even though automotive dealerships have service departments, these departments are costly overhead for the dealers and their workers are mostly mechanics or they have specialty performing large-scale jobs.  Ultragloss specializes in automotive appearance: those scratches, scrapes, scuffs, road rash, and key marks that typically hinder the sale of a vehicle (or lower its overall value). Bottom line: if you are looking for an affordable mobile franchise that’s virtually recession proof, Ultragloss is right for you. Ultragloss has completely analyze the business model to sculpt it into something even more efficient to meet increased demand for our services from used automotive dealerships.  We train our franchisees how to do every aspect of the business and we offer comprehensive one-on-one support.  Our look sets us apart from our competition.  And last, but not least: our customer service is impecable.
