Someone mentioned to me that mobil oil change company may be a good business. The people would be able to get there oil changed at there houses instead of wasting time at the dealerships or lubes. I never thought about this untill someone mentioned it to me. What do you guys think about it?

Without really thinking about it, i think it would be hard to make money at it. You would have to charge more then the lube places and be able to get alot of cars done in a day. You could target office complexes and places like that and knock out a bunch all in one place. What do you think?

Then goes home and waits for the check.



That's the way most of those guys do it, around here anyway.

I don't see how you could make a living doing it for individuals.

You would have to kick arse and take names . . . being willing to pound the pavement a lot to look for work. Seems like it would take forever and a day to become profitable.
