If you perform detail work for auto dealers what price do they pay you?

Please specify if they are new car dealers with a used car department.

Or, a used car dealer.

What state are you located.

Trying to assemble a picture of the wholesale detail market nationwide.

Thanks for your cooperation

You would get a better answer if you asked the question in a poll... this board allows you to do that

Agreed, it is a "large" area and types of business to address in such a small response area.
You did specifiy new car or used car, however there may be more to this than meets the eye.
Some do only "new car prep" work, others do both "new car prep and used car recon".
Others do only quality used car recon.
Then, the are those who do the "pop lot" work, quicky, shine and go, get it on the lot, make it shine and then it can go to auction if not sold in a couple of weeks work.(in my opinion, these are the one's that "come and go" sort of detail operations, not lasting more for than a year.
No retail work according to your question posted, just dealer work, and once again, "question" is are the subjected dealers new car franchise dealers or used car lots, and there are more than one type of such of those dealers.
Bud, it just goes on and on, and there are many who are serious about getting in the business, but have no idea of how varied the "detailing" market is, what is expected, how to make sure they are paid, etc, etc.
This is where such as you, Gina, Pro-Detailer, etc may be of great source of "knowledge" for them.
Getting them to really consider and listen to what such have to offer is another area completely.
