Educating the ignorant - setting up a detailing business where there is none?

The briefest of explanations is that living on Guernsey there seems to be a perfect market of lots of people with money, therefore expensive cars; a lack of detailing services as oppose to the more common valeting businesses that seem to serve dealerships mainly.

While I'm certainly not a detailer in the professional sense I am very proficient at it and certainly handy with a DA or rotary.

I understand as a business I would need insurance to cover any potential damage to customers cars.

However, my biggest issue is convincing people that my work would be worth the extra money over the current services as I would not only be starting a business but to the best of my knowledge the first of it's kind on our little island.

Beyond examples of my work, how would you guys suggest going about roping in these lovely cars?
