The car valeting franchise with a difference

Dad Shaun Kinsell was fed up with the unsociable hours as a lorry driver. So earlier this year, he parked up and became his own boss.

Shaun's advice to others thinking of buying a franchise is to do thorough research and get full backing from family.

"I'm so pleased I made the move. I really enjoy life now. I meet lots of people and get real job satisfaction when I've done a good job, transformed a dirty vehicle and made someone smile."

"I cover the DY postcode area and things are going well. Obviously, the weather can dictate how busy I am. When it's sunny I'm rushed off my feet. But I have a huge cover so, in reality, can work in any weather.
"I'm loving it as I've got my life back. I never used to see my wife and kids - we were like passing ships. Now I'm home for tea and I can help my children with their homework."

"I liked the concept of franchising. With the proven sales, tried and tested work ethic and the training and back-up, it would be the best route into business for me.

"I came across Autovaletdirect, the mobile car valeting franchise, and I liked their set-up. I'd wanted to do something similar myself 10 years ago but didn't have the guts!"

Sean raised the finance to buy his Autovaletdirect franchise from an investment he'd made when he was younger. And in February he was up and running in the West Midlands.

"I'd had enough of missing out on family life and decided it was time to get my life back," says Shaun, 41.
