Boat Detailers; Add-on Products and Services

As a Boat Detailing Specialist, you may want to offer services such as making sure your clients' boat's batteries are charged and offering to charge them or test the boat before they arrive for their departure. This is an easy service to provide and will keep you on the top of the boat owners list of reputable and reliable service companies. Battery Chargers can be purchased at:

You may offer to stock the vessel's gallery and refrigerator with beverages, mixers, or certain foods. Sometimes you will only bring them out to the boat when needed so food items don't rot in the refrigerator. This is a nice service. If you have customers that are spending a lot of money, occasionally put out one of the small disposable ice chests. Fill it with ice just before they come out for the weekend or if they have an existing ice chest use that and throw in some six packs of mixers, maybe some beers or wine coolers, something like that if you know off hand what they like. It can really make a good impression.

As a Professional Boat Detailing Specialist you may also want to include a service to test your client's engines before their departure. You'll have to have somewhat of a knowledge of engines, how to check the oil correctly and so on. If this is an area that you are not comfortable with do not include it in your service as you can drain down a battery trying to start an engine improperly in a boat and that leaves no one happy.

Another important add-on service, which isn't always popular with some boaters, but can be sold to them, is interior cleaning. The bigger the boat the more popular this service will be. So you'll want to have a lot of good household cleaning products, top of the line, and safe, as you would for use on the interior of any fine home. Do a thorough, impeccable job and your business will continue to grow and grow. Special products that you'll need will be brass polishes, stainless steel cleaners, good floor soaps and waxes, excellent wood polishes, top of the line everything, and charge accordingly. Here are some good sources with very competitive rates:

I sincerely want you to succeed in your boat detailing business and if you will think about rising above the average boat detailing operator and becoming a Professional Boat Detailing Specialist. Be efficient, be smart and do it right the first time.
