HOME CAR WASH SERVICE

FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS
INTRODUCTION This new business enterprise will provide home service of cleaning, washing and polishing; interior and exterior of car, trucks, motor bikes, jeeps, 4x4, tractors and any other vehicle. It is found that people always want their vehicle to be neat, tidy and having a polished surface. A majority of the population owning a vehicle are willing to pay even more than what is charged for the service but there are two major factors that makes the vehicles untidy. First of all the roads of the area; as soon as there is a rain shower, mud deposits on and near the roads is wedged with the moving traffic, making the vehicle untidy. Second reason is the service station, they do provide a satisfactory car wash service but people are very busy and no one is willing to wait in the lines at the service station to get there vehicle clean. Now any one in need of a wash service, can call us our contact number (helpline) from anywhere (home/office/shop) and while the owner is busy in his/her daily activities his/her vehicle will get the wash service desired by the owner. OPERATIONS OF THE BUSINESS Main operation will include washing the exterior with the (branded) car-washshampoo. Cleaning the deposits of mud underneath the car. Using air blower and vacuum cleaners, for removing dust from the interior and under the bonnet. And at last polishing by means of polishing machine and branded polish. CONCEPT This new and innovate idea is appreciated by many people and they are willing to pay more than the service station rates due to the fact that they will be able to save a lot of time and they can get a service they wish for at any time of the day or night as the service is offered 24 hours, at any place they want (in the restricted area of the business). NATURE OF THE BUSINESS

HOME CAR WASH SERVICE

As this is a service related business, there is a no such Cost of Goods to be estimated. No doubt like every business, this business will also commence by purchasing the assets such as air-blower, portable-vacuum cleaner, miniwater pressure pump and polishing machine. And of course a contact number (preferable cell phone; due to low cost, affordability and mobility). Car wash shampoo, polish, wash cloth and the transportation cost will be accounted as operating expenses (daily expenses). Initially the service will be provided in limited area, but if the business will gain success and the idea becomes hit, there are expansion planes.

1. INDUSTRY AND MARKET FEASIBILITY

MARKET AND INDUSTRY COMPETITION Market size of such business is very small as there is very minute direct competition; as there is no such organized business running in the area, small number of unemployed individuals standing at parking lots can be considered as a small threat. And the service stations can be considered as indirect competition. Competitors are not similar in size or capacity. The more the Business will grow the more the industry will grow, and by the estimation in the light of the survey conducted shows all the lines in the graphs and charts shooting up-wards. All of this attraction and expected growth is possible due to the opportunity to sell a differentiated service. SUPPLIERS/SUPPLIES This is a service business. The products used in the daily routine will be purchased according to the daily requirements, as this is a small scale business so supplies (such as polish, shampoo etc.) will not be bought in huge amount/stock as the business doesn’t have that capacity right now. CONSUMERS/CUSTOMERS The first thing consumers usually do when they hear of a new service is compare it to existing alternatives. Customers will buy from a new business only if they perceive the value provided by that new business to be greater than the value provided by existing competitors, and as there is no such direct competitors in the market more and more people who are aware of

the upcoming business are willing to become the potential customers and are ready to pay to achieve the services. As the number of customers is initially low and there is almost no switching cost; the influence of the customers is high. But the number of buyer is estimated to grow very rapidly. Customers can easily compare a professional home car wash service with the service given at the station or with the services of those unemployed and unorganized people standing at the parking lots. THREAT OF SUBSTITUTES If getting a car wash from another place is a threat of substitute than Yes there is a threat. But talking in the real terms, and taking into consideration the fact the service provided is not just a car-wash; it is ‘home car wash’ than there is no threat of substitutes as workers working on the service stations will never come to one’s house to clean the car and nobody will ever think of inviting the people standing at parking lots to their houses for a car wash, due to the security reasons. Thus proving that there is no or a very small threat of substitute. POTENTIAL ENTRANCE Potential entrance is not considered a threat at this initial stage because of the reason that the business is going to kick-start from a small level. And there number of customers even in the early stages is lot more than the potential load of the work that business could handle, so any entrance will not be causing the loss of customers.

2. SERVICE FEASIBILITY The facts and figures generated are on the bases of Primary data collected. Questioners were used to collect the data (attached). 50 people were used in the process of survey (randomly). Varied people (in terms of age, gender, and race) presented their point of view about the business. The results were beyond our expectations. Focus was on a particular group of people living on or near the Stadium/Double road (Rawalpindi) and the 9th avenue (Islamabad).
