How To Justify Charging $11,000 For A Single Car Wash

This is 30-year-old Gurcharn Sahota. He runs a car washing business out of his parents’ garage. Now, before you start laughing and calling him a failure, consider this: He regularly charges up to $11,000 to clean a single car. Here’s how.

Sahota specializes in cleaning high-end cars—the kind most of us can only dream of owning—and he does it incredibly well. Sometimes he’ll work for up to 250 hours on a single car and use gear such as a kit of 100 cleaning solutions, a microscope, wax priced at over $12,000 per tub, and a special paint gauge to leave cars perfectly spotless.

It’s fascinating to listen to Sahota talk about his work mostly because I only spend a handful of quarters each time I clean my own car, but also because I’d never considered car washing to be a high tech art.

There are only two infinite things: the Universe and human stupidity, but I’m not sure about the Universe

Hmm, just as the person drives out with its clean-as-new car, a truck drives by going over a few muddy puddles and disaster . . . :doh:

With just an ordinary car wash, I’ve had this happen, arriving home with my car more dirty looking than before I went to the car wash and I’m sure no car wash would make the car any more immune to dirt than a standard car wash. :disagree:

Perhaps this is for those times when you’ve accidentally killed someone in your car, and you need to get rid of the DNA evidence? :stuck_out_tongue:

250 hours and USD 11,000…including materials…
Not taking into account materials, that is USD 44 an hour… a bargain if you ask me :wink:
