    Quick! Name suggestions for mobile auto detailing business!

    Hi everyone! Hope everyone is doing well in their holiday shopping.

    I'm creating this topic because I have a grad school project where we have to create our own business and develop a business plan. Because I've learned so much from you guys since i've joined here and because i love detailing cars so much, I've decided to do a detailing business.

    I'm having a huge problem coming up with a cool name for it. I want something that "says" clean. Maybe something with shine in the title. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Oh and while i'm here, if you guys have an slick, one-sentence vision statements, i'm all ears

    Not sure if this would help with the class project from the big picture point of view but anytime you name a business you should also check to see if the name will lend itself to a domain name and if it will make sure the domain name is available.

    Making it easy to remember, easy to spell and type are also good ideas.

    In addition to Mike's suggestion I would also add that you make if possible use your location or regional name for your coverage area in the name. Why?

    Because some people search like this:

    chico detailing
    detailing in chico
    chico detailing

    Re: Quick! Name suggestions for mobile auto detailing business!

    I do not like businesses that use their personal name in them. Just don't. I hate dealerships that name themselves like "Jeff Smith Ford".

    Just pick something catchy. And like Mike said, make sure you can get a domain for it. I had to add "detailing" to "clean4u".

    Google some names and see the popularity of names in general and then tweak it. I saw Clean For You and changed to CLEAN4U.
