No, you will not have to make any monthly payments before your Wag’n Tails pet grooming vehicle is ready for delivery. Wag’n Tails understands how important cash flow is when starting a new business or growing an existing business. Our lead time is approximately 8 weeks from the time of order. We typically always have an inventory of vehicles on our lot ready for customization.
All of our pet grooming customers receive a mobile pet grooming business success guide. This guide is a time-tested and proven educational resource that teaches pet groomers how to build a successful mobile business. It includes valuable information ranging from pricing strategy to client scheduling and rebooking best practices, marketing and sales techniques, budgeting, vehicle maintenance, and so much more. Wag’n Tails also provides business consulting services to customers in need of additional support. Our mission is to help mobile pet care professionals be successful, and our customers have an excellent track record of achieving their personal and professional goals.
On average, a mobile pet groomer with a Wag’n Tails vehicle charges between 25-50% more than a pet groomer working in a brick-and-mortar salon. However, the pricing premium could be higher or lower than the average depending on the demographics of your local market. Mobile pet grooming clients are more than willing to pay a premium because mobile services are convenient and time-saving for them and better for their pet(s).
On average, a mobile pet groomer with a Wag’n Tails vehicle grooms about 6 dogs per day. A mobile pet groomer can afford to groom fewer pets daily because a comparable level of revenue can be generated through premium pricing for mobile services. Furthermore, many mobile pet grooming clients have multi-pet households, which helps with both travel efficiency and work productivity and often leads to more meaningful time with pets/parents and improved work-life balance for mobile pet groomers.
This is a lesson that we learned through years of experience. Large commercial vans are designed to carry the loads needed for mobile pet grooming services. They have better suspension than lighter vans and are designed specifically for heavy-duty loads. With the generator and other conversion elements, you need a van that will withstand years of use. One-ton vans are necessary for the durability and longevity of your pet grooming vehicle.
Certainly. Wag’n Tails has designed pet grooming vehicles that we think are both highly efficient and a pleasure to work in. However, no two pet groomers are alike, so changes to many features are available. An extra charge may apply though depending on the customization.

“I have owned my Wag’n Tails Pet Stylist Elite for over two years. I have a waiting list of new clients and plan to buy my second Pet Stylist Elite this year. My Wag’n Tails vehicle conveys the professional image that clients appreciate and have come to expect from my premium at-home grooming service.”
“Being a mobile groomer is great for numerous reasons. Some of the top benefits for me are: setting my own hours, working when I want to, and making as much money as I need. Another big plus is that the Pet Stylist Elite is really fun to drive!”
“There is life after the salon! My Wag’n Tails vehicle has proven to me that there is indeed life after the salon. I have rediscovered my craft in a relaxed and stress-free atmosphere, and I can now give my full attention to the pets in my care and their owners rather than to the ringing phones, client distractions, or daily commotion of a busy salon.”
“When I was 19 years old, I told my parents that I wanted to be a dog groomer. They told me to go out and get a real job. Well, after 20 years in corporate accounting, I spent my bonus on grooming school and now I have my very own mobile pet grooming business. I guess that I finally have a ‘real job’. I wish that I had done it 20 years ago.”
