Hello everyone! Im Spiro and im from Greece! My passion since i was a young kid was anything that has to do with a car! i need your help and i will TRY to make this as short as possible for you, im trying to save up money to open my own car detailing shop, but i just cant on my own, i tried everything, worked many hours, did couple of jobs at the same time working a car mechanic shop (durring off seaon), but with this crisis and especially now with the pandemic its just not possible to save since i have a family also and only me working. For the past 10 years ive been working with tourism as a driver, transfering people arround from airports to hotels and tours arround Athens and outside of Athens, all over Greece. Met wonderful people and families had a BLAST (thats an other job i like) but now we ALL lost our jobs (not just me) cause of this covid and tourism wont be the same for a looong time. The government gives us a little help with some money everymonth, but its like 70% less of what we would make! So i really had to figure something out and quick cause like i said before, i have a family, so i took my hobby (car detailing) and used it to see if i can achive something, since i have a little space at home. Ofcourse i couldnt advirtise my self since i was not a real shop, so i had to work hard and keep posting my work on my fb page for (friends) could see what im doing and maybe could tell to an other friend, and at the same time im cheaper. So to make the long story short, this really blew up, i had people messaging, calling me...and now ive reached up to that point that im 100% sure and not 50% as i was before, that this could really work if i could really open my own car wash-detailing center. People like my work, they trust me, and im doing a little more than ok and just by mouth to mouth! I worked many many hours to try to save, but it was just NOT possible since even tho i was working 12-14 hours a day and with one day off a month durring high season, off season was less money, did couple extra jobs on the side but still, all the bills kept comming someone had to pay them. Banks dont give out loans any more, i tried and they only give me 5.000 euros cause my sallary is low, so im really out of options. with a little research i did in order to open a car wash you need in total 30.000-40.000 euros (in total) and to give you a picture an average rent for 1 bedroom appartment is arround 250 in an ok area. So my last i quess help is threw here i quess, and the funny thing is, i was joking with a friend and i was like (yall better start funding for your friend here) and he was like, well check this web site out! lol. Opening a car wash is really not that expensive, but what it really costs is finding the right place and turn it from a Resturant for example that closed down into a car wash. You can not find empty spaces as in some other countries. and if i find one ready, its to expensive to buy as is, plus if the before owner was not professional, it will take a while in order for people to come back because a different owner owns it....working from home now is also not enough, i dont have a car everyday, its only enough to get back where i allmost was basically before covid, but still not enough to actually save for something like that, plus i cant really work for long from my home. Will have a problem eventually...If you actually reading this part, that means you red the whole thing, you are a hero! lol but jokes aside thank you for everyones time and the help you give out to people!
Also i uploaded some pictures of my work, and several jobs i did, but if you like you can also visit my detailing fb page with ALL my work and passion!
