Driven Auto Detail has moved indoors!

As some of you know, last year was an extremely tough year for me personally. However, things have finally turned the corner with my personal life & my business as well. For 2009 I have transitioned from being mobile to a fixed location. My new shop is 1.5 miles from my house (25 minute walk, 5-minute bike ride) and it's right downtown Brownsburg on Main St. Everything about this shop is better than the one that fell through last fall, including the rent so I am pretty happy with it. I moved in March 1st and so far things are going ok. The first couple weeks I didn't have a sign so no one knew I was there, but since I've had my sign up, things have gotten busier. I LOVE working in the comforts of the indoors. This shop now allows me to work all year round, no matter the weather. Plus, it has already seemed to given me more credibility when it comes to talking to prospective clients. It seems as though people take me much more seriously when I tell them I have a shop as opposed to when I would tell people I was mobile. All in all, I think it's going to be a great change for my business. Here are some pics of the facility.

The exterior (entrance door is on the right side of the building):


Interior:








Wash bay through doorway. Closed-door is bathroom.

And finally, the upstairs loft:




And here is one of the first cars to come through. It's a brand new black 2009 Mercedes E350 4MATIC. I'll post more pics of it later on as the ones I took that day didn't turn out real well.



Thanks for looking!

Good luck with your new location. I would have you detail my truck if I was closer.

Congrats Mike! After all you've been though it's amazing how positive of an attitude you've kept, it's really an inspiration. Your new shop looks great, I like the set up and you really do deserve this. If I'm ever up (or out I guess) your way I'll swing by. Congrats again.

Looks like a nice set up. Think you can make the short 4 hour trip up 69 to Lansing to get my tuck. ha ha
