    Ok...this was my hardest one in the last month.

    2001 Tahoe....Forest Green. It's owned by a female real estate agent (same place) that also has 3 boys. It has 81K on the odometer and was in terrible shape. She show alot of wooded properties and had numerous tree branch scratches from one end of the vehicle to the next.

    Here's the rundown:


    - Cleaned wheels with Meguiars Hot Rims
    - Cleaned tires with Meguiars NXT Tire Cleaning Foam
    - Wash car with Meguiars NXT car wash (with some mild degreaser)
    - Clayed with Meguiars Clay and Speed shine
    - Used Meguiars M0216 Fine Cut Cleaner
    - Used Meguiars M0916 Swirl Remover with Yellow pad (removed)
    - Used Meguiars NXT Tech Wax with Tan Polishing pad (remove)
    *Applied with Meguiars M100 polisher (similar to PC)
    **Yes...this was a three stager...on a Freak'n Tahoe!

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of prices do you charge for something like that?

    Told the lady 150-175 upfront. Remember, I came to where she worked. When I was done, I walked her to the vehicle and went over it with her. I told her 150.00; she paid me 200.00 and asked if I can wash it every week!

    I said HELL YEAH!

    I did 4 complete details and 4 wash and vacs last week for about 950.00 minus supplies (20-30 bucks).

    Nothing like kids and soccer mom to completely fuck up an SUV inside and out.

    At least if you clean it weekly, you can stay on top of the mess. :)

    Yeah thats what I'm hoping!
    I'm thinking of doing some type of a contract. It would give the customer 4 washes and vacs with a wax per month. I just don't know what to charge.
    Any suggestions?

    Why not offer a maintenance plan for $50-60 a week? That would include wash, vacuum, wheels, tires, etc plus you wax a section and detail a section of the interior. Basically, over 4-6 weeks you not only wash it 4-6 times but you keep it maintained at a freshly detailed level.
