I would do a search for them and see if they have a website. Then I would do a search to see if there was any problems with this company.

What are you looking to get next?

Also, what happened to your van?

well there is a website. pinnacle finance or somthing.
The oil pump went out and the motor locked up on my way home.
She just took a real beating this summer , and its just time to upgrade.
I'v got a loner but its in bad shape and I don' even trust going out in this thing. I guess somthing is better than nothing?

Ultimately, you know what's best for you to do.

How is the used car market in the area? Are there any older trucks that you can find for cheap or no?

Would you be ok with another used truck or what would you like to do ideally?

That is awesome! What are you going to do for cosmetic purposes?

Can we see a picture of your van?

What is your view on using older vehicles for your lawn care business? Do you find it is actually good for business?

I would think the more you look like you are hurting for money, the more willing the customer may be to pay you more.

What's your view?

I can't wait to see it.

Now that the new forum is up, you can post images and it automatically creates thumbnail images of it! I am so excited that it all works so well!

Will you be doing anything for signs on it?

What will you be doing to paint it? Will you paint in a garage? Outside? What kind of paint will you be using and what color?

I one time saw a guy who painted his work truck with latex and used a roller to paint it LOL.

That is awesome. Will you be using some outrageous color to really attract attention or what's your view on that?

No, I think I just going to go back with the factory color. less material, and less work.
