    market research - Aftercare products

    Guys need a little help..

    have been looking into setting up a small buisness to sell car care products for a while.. i'd just like to ask a few questions if you can spare a minute or 2.

    1) How often does your car get washed?

    2)Do you hand wash or use company services to clean the car?

    3)Do you treat your car with wax/polish when you clean it and how often do you do this if so?

    4)What product brand do you mainly use?

    5) do you use a certain product because of price? quality? brand?


    if you could get back to me that would be great..

    thanks for your help.

    Re: market research - Aftercare products

    1 - Every other week.

    2 - Hadn wash

    3 - Very rarely, plan to do it more (although, i bet eveyrone does)

    4 - No particular brand, use what's been recomended to me or reviewed well.

    5 - as above (although price, as with everything else has a part to play)

    Hope it's useful to you in some way

    Be sure to post up if you do get it started, and don't forget the as.net members discounts [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Re: market research - Aftercare products

    1. every other week as got a dirt bug scuff on bumper after if was just sprayed. when it is repaired then twice a week!
    2. hand wash all the way as then u find out problems with the bodywork / scratches which just annoy you. unless using buy 1 get 1 free at morissons car wash, lol.
    3. every time i wash car as bought nxt tech wax which is well easy and quick to apply and gives a brilliant deep shine.
    4. maguiars or auto glym
    5. quality / ease of use. obviously price as well as no point spending daft amounts of money!

    interesting to see how it goes.

    1. Once a week
    2. Hand wash always
    3. Not enought though probably gets waxed/polished twice a year. Use a wash and wax product though when washing.
    4. Meguiars for wax. Varies for washing.
    5. All orf the above needs a good compromise.

    Cheers.
