What You Need to Know before Mobile Pet Grooming Business stated
If you are interested in a mobile pet grooming business, there are some things you should consider before you start.
It’s Not for Everyone
Its not for everyone, You have to work one-on-one with pets in tight conditions,
You’ll be giving up the idea when you compare with a bricks-and-mortar pet grooming store. It has comforts of storage, big space, running water, an easily accessible restroom, and even reliable access to power.
But there’s no need to be disappoint, though! There are lots of mobile groomers and mobile vets out there making it work right now and you can, too! It just takes some research and imagination.
It Requires Special Skills and Knowledge
If you’re not a trained groomer, that’s where you can start. People may crave convenience, but they won’t trade convenience for real skill. So, before you start pricing out conversion vans or unused school buses to convert into your own personal grooming salon on wheels, make sure your skills are on point
Your skills include Pet handling in vehicles or confined spaces they are unfamiliar with.
Additionally, search for mobile groomers who may be interested in sharing insights and information with you or work with you.
How to Get Started
The first step is to invest in a conversion vans or unused school buses. Then change the van or minibus in to pet grooming centre. it should have a water tank, water heater, power generator, sink, cleaning table and some more space to store grooming tools. A mini bus with a capacity of 12-14 people will suffice to meet all these requirements.

Enchantingpets vans are custom pet grooming van which is fully equipped with all the equipment that a professional pet groomer requires. The modern vans are equipped with quiet generators, heat and two water tanks. One fresh water tank, and one for the “gray” (dirty) water. Your pet is always bathed with clean, warm water in a relaxing bath. The stainless steel tubs are specially designed for our vans and fit any breed or size. The custom, electric groom tables lower right to the floor. This allows older, arthritic and big dogs, to step right onto the table. The table is also equipped with a retractable ramp. It provides a comfortable access for your dog to step right into and out of the tub, directly from the table. Our gentle, super sudser spray provides your pet with a massaging bath. Your pet is hand dried by our efficient force air dryers. They gently dry and fluff at a low speed, or at a high speed loosen dirt and remove excess undercoat.
Next, you need to determine the locations where you want to work. Identify residential areas that have the maximum number of pet parents. You can do this by visiting vet and getting an idea about their clients. The important thing to keep in mind is that the primary target audience of mobile pet grooming services are high-end families who have enough income to spend on their pets.
