Exploring Life & Business with Jerome Sheriff of Sheriff Detailing

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jerome Sheriff. 

Hi Jerome, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I started detailing cars about 2 and half years ago. I got the idea when I received so many compliments on my work for detailing my car and my wife car. Before I purchased all the equipment and products to be a part-time detailer, I handed out business cards and flyers to see if I could actually pull it off. After some time, I had a couple people interested so I bought everything I needed and started from there. Since then, I had customers that appreciated my service and recommended me to others. 

My love for cars started years ago. As long as I remembered I have always been obsessed with cars. I remember instead of receiving money from the tooth fairy the tooth fairy would leave me hot wheel cars under my pillow, which only amplified my obsession. From collecting hot wheels cars, to playing video games to watching movies like “The Fast and The Furious” cars has always been a part of my life. I am glad that I get to work on cars because it will always be something I will be interested in. 

I love detailing cars because I enjoy seeing the transformation of an owner’s car. What’s even better is seeing the owners’ face once they see their car brought back to life. 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Surprisingly, it has been a smooth road so far and I pray it stays that way. I put a lot of time into learn what I know and it’s still a lot I don’t know. I became a student again. I did a lot of research from reading books, watching YouTube videos, joining Facebook groups and I even had some help from my uncle. I believe if I continue to put forth the effort and continuing to learn the craft there isn’t anything I can’t accomplish. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
As a mobile detailer, I have experience cleaning the interior and exterior of cars. I believe I specialize in interior cleaning I’ve had so many people shocked at the results I am able to come up with when cleaning customers’ seats and floors. I believe what sets me apart from others is that I am mobile. While most shops have customers wait hours in a lobby for their car to be finished, I provide the customer the opportunity to wait in their comfort in their home. They can hand me the keys and get back in bed if that’s what they choose. I believe another thing that set me apart is my business mindset. I read once to never lose a customer and it’s my goal to do everything in my power to make every customer happy. A strong business is built on great customer satisfaction. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the role of luck?
I believe luck has played a small role in my business. I am a strong believer in whatever you want, one must simply work for it. You have to put in the work when no one is watching when no one believe in the vision that you see. As long as you believe in it God, he will make a way for you. I can say this has been a fun and interesting learning experience and I hope that my exposure and business success continue to flourish.
