December 2015 Client Stories

Crystal Brown, CC Mobile Car Detailing
Bundaberg, QLD | December 2015

What is your business?
I’m a mobile car detailer and go to people’s places to wash and detail their cars. I’m trying to extend the business into house cleaning and carpet shampooing. There’s a lot of competition in the area but no one that goes to the client. And no one compares to my prices.

Why did you go into business?
I was doing work for Puddles Car Wash and in retail but had lost my job so needed to make an income. I started car washing through Facebook and it took off.  I did a client’s car and she told me about Stacy to get advice on the business. That was October last year.

Grafton, NSW | December 2015

What were you doing before you made contact with Many Rivers?

What services did you receive from Many Rivers? How did it help?

Many Rivers have been very good, 100% really really good. … Continue reading

Karl Nathan, Cleaning Gardening & Tree Services
Fitzroy Crossing, West Kimberley, WA | December 2015

What is your previous work history and experience?
