There is no shine to it, as I painted it a flat black color... I like the looks of the flat black..It was painted using rust oleum paint and a air paint gun..
Total price is around $30..

Looks good, are you putting your contact info on it and a few key services? We found it to be a key marketing tool.

That is very creative! Nice work!

Where will your signs go? On your truck or trailer?

Im not doing any business advertising on my truck... Its my daily driver and sometimes Im not the nicest guy to be next to on the road...

Im going to start Organic lawn and pest control soon, so Im restructuring XtreemGreen alittle..

That was one of my concerns too, hahaha!

When I'm in a rush - magnets come off the truck.:D


Also, I'm switching vehicles with my stepfather soon as he's going on a fishing trip & needs the space for the gear.

I'll be driving his Chevy Avalanche, I'll be the most expensive looking lawn service company around..

So ultimately, will the advertising go on the trailer?

You both brought up a great point.

When you put signs on your truck, you have to take extra precautions to drive calmly or it can potentially hurt business.

The question I have is if it's better to have signs on your truck if it's your daily driver or no?

Are you potentially missing out on a lot of advertising?

Personal opinion and I drive my truck everywhere, you are a walking and driving representation of your company 24/7, we have picked up business while I was at the grocery store on the way home after working.

i was considering getting something along the lines of that or a fancy suv with cut back like a hummer but one its wayy out of price range
two gas will run you through the roof
three insurance will run you through the roof
four a truck would just be better ahahah

If this new business picks up, IM going to have to get a full size truck to haul a bigger water tank.. So then Ill advertise all over it..Im not doing a trailer, because I dont want the extra length to haul..It all depends on how the business goes..
