Headlight Restoration - a Viable Business

Headlight Restoration - a Viable Business With Substantial Profits 

The need for headlight restoration has exploded in recent years due to the rising cost of replacing dull and foggy lenses. Ever since glass lenses were replaced with the more stylish designs made of types of plastic, corrosion has been a nuisance. Headlight lens corrosion not only effects the aesthetic value of the vehicle but is a safety issue as well. Therefore a headlight restoration service provides a cosmetic solution as well as a mechanical solution. Providing a single solution for two problems has made headlight restoration a viable and profitable business with little start up cost.
 Those considering headlight restoration need to consider how they will find customers, how much to charge, and what system and products to utilize.
Finding Customers
Service dealerships. Most used cars departments pay outside vendors to make cosmetic repairs on their cars. Schedule weekly visits with used car managers. Normally stopping once a week, walk used car inventory, write down cars needing repairs including model, stock number color. Contact manager for approval.
Offer service to detail shops, dealership service drive, body shops, lube shops, etc. Make arrangements for them to sell the service at a specific price above your charge to them. Place advertising in these businesses to help sell your service.
