Car Care was started in Perth in 1987 and has since grown to become Australia’s largest mobile car detailer with operations in Sydney, Central Coast NSW, Canberra ACT, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Adelaide, Northern Territory, Tasmania and, of course, Perth.
In BRW’s January 2006 focus on Australian franchising Car Care was ranked 33rd in a list of the Fastest Growing Franchises in Australia. In addition Car Care was ranked 13th in the proportion of sales derived outside Australia – ahead of companies such as Jim’s and Boost Juice.
Most people only dream of owning their own business but our franchisees live that dream every day. Our franchise system has helped people from all walks of life and, in many cases with no previous business experience, establish a successful business with a good income and lifestyle without the need for huge investment.
Car Care’s major point of difference in the detailing industry is that all vans are equipped with their own water tank and generator, making it unnecessary for franchisees to locate taps and power points. The saying “we can go anywhere” truly has meaning.
This was the reason Audi chose Car Care as their preferred car detailer when they decided to take some cars and journalists across the Nullarbor with a Car Care franchisee in tow. Now that’s what we call mobile – although most of our detailer’s like to return home at night!
As the name would suggest, we tend to focus on cars, although we have been called upon to detail, boats, light airplanes, huge earth moving and mining equipment, caravans etc., etc.
Whilst our major focus is on Australia we have established a small network in New Zealand and China and may continue to expand overseas with the right partners.
