    I would say it would be difficult to establish both kinds of businesses in one go as the detailing side is very specialised as anyone can valet a car but the detailing side is exceptionally difficult to get into and get a good reputation as you have several very talented detailers in the Glasgow area. Personally I would get the valeting business up and running first and get the name recognised and then slowly introduce the detailing side of things.

    Agree with brodster.. You would really need to no what you're at detailing a car.. Not everyone can do it right.. Start small and then think of expanding..
