Mobile Oil Change,,, on windy days

CmobileCmobile subscriber Posts: 1
I recently started a mobile oil change business.  I offer oil changes, topping off all under-hood fluids, tire rotations, even AC recharge.  Here in Colorado, it can get very windy.  Sustained winds at 35-45 mph, and gusts as high as 60 are not uncommon. Right now I use a large rubber mat under the vehicle to prevent any fluid spills.  When it is windy, it takes 3 times as long to perform an oil change. The when the oil is draining, at first the stream goes right into the pan, however when the oil stream slows and gets smaller, the wind can blow it all over the place.   Does anyone have suggestions on how to alleviate this problem.  60 minute oil changes are eating my profits.
