Should You Start Your Own Detail Shop in 2010 – Does it Make Sense?

This last recession has been hard on everyone, far too many people lost their good paying corporate jobs with excellent benefits. Many people are tired of the boom and bust business cycles, and they are fed up with corporate America laying them off every time the economy turns south. You only have to go through a few of these cycles to realize that if you're not in a profession that is somewhat recession proof, it is really hard to budget and plan for the future.

Perhaps, it is for this reason that so many people are considering starting their own business at this time. If you love automobiles and would like to be in the automobile sector running your own company, then sometimes you will consider setting up a car detail shop. There have been tens of thousands of people that have been laid off as mechanics from car dealerships after General Motors and Chrysler cut thousands of car dealerships from their franchise agreements.

Luckily, if you'd like to start your own detail shop right now this might be a very good time because many industrial properties are "for-lease" and there are some extremely good properties that have auto bays with good frontage on main roads that are now available for a good lease price. In fact, you might be up to pick up a 10-year lease guarantee that the price will not increase even though we are over the recession, and headed into a business expansion period.

For many years myself, I was in the automobile sector, and we did run some detail shops. I did enjoy the fact that there are more cars than there are people in the United States, and that we really are a nation of automobiles. No, the mobile sector is not for everyone, but it might just be right for you. I hope you will please consider this.
