Vehicle cleaning and valeting business Careys is striding forwards after COVID-19 restrictions forced it to limit its services.

Almost every business has been affected in some way by the coronavirus outbreak, but we’re pleased to say many of our franchises are doing well as lockdown restrictions are eased. Careys has experienced its share of challenges over the past few months, but it’s starting to get back on track and building up its team of trusty cleaners again.

The car and automotive franchise, which has been trading since 2004, was forced to cancel all its upcoming valeting appointments as of the 23rd March. The business contacted all its customers personally and kept in touch with many via its Facebook page.

Thanks to the team’s resilience, Careys was able to roll out a limited service just over one month later. By the 26th April, the franchise had trialled its social distancing policy and reintroduced many of its operations whilst strictly following the government’s regulations. By May, half the Careys team were back on the road providing top-quality valeting services.

Careys has listened to its customers throughout the COVID-19 lockdown. It was able to keep the business profitable by providing sanitising valets with a range of new products, while offering those “returning cars or waiting for pay day” a discount. Throughout May, customers could buy the ‘complete service’ valet for 75 percent of the price.

Now, Careys is working on building its team back up and aims to get back to full strength by the end of July. If you’re interested in joining an automotive franchise, Careys could be for you! Head to its franchise page on our website to find out more about investing in this robust business.
