Re: Perceived value
I won't get into the dealer or retail argument here. I think both have merit
My dealer experience is limited and deals with another product, so there.
On the retail side, using Bud Riggs info, I fixed headlights for neighbors
and people they (the neighbors) referred. I've walked a few parking lots just
to see what would happen.
The opportunity is plentiful. Some want it, some don't care.
For anyone looking to get into this as a "quick moneymaker", pay attention to
Gordon's observations in this thread.
All plastic lenses are NOT the same, therefore results will vary.
Also, if you are fixing headlights outdoors and not in a controlled environment
weather conditions: temperature, wind speed & direction, humidity levels, sunny
or cloudy, will have an affect on your results. Doesn't matter what headlight
cleaning product you are using.
Customer expectations is another variable that you need to be aware of BEFORE you
start fixing their lens.
There are others.
That said, with the right approach, I think that headlight cleaning could be set up
as one of Dien's "absentee owner" businesses.
