Having a sign on your truck would help. Though if your booked & wont be able to take on many more customers, I wouldn't bother with it. It does look nice, though if it's not necessary due to school, maybe get a truck sticker instead?

Welcome to the forum. Glad to see you geting a start so young. I started my company when I was 19 and has given me a great life! My advice regarding the signs would be to put signage in every "appropriate" place. The trailer tailgate is a great place since people who are following you generally have much more time to either write down your info or at least remember it. Even though you might not be able to take on additional work right now, you still want to build name recoginition in the comminity. And you never know, you might get an opportunity of a lifetime just from one executive or one condo boardmember that may have seen your sign. Last but not least, make sure everything you do is done professionally. Having poorly done signage can do more harm than having none at all! If you need any help, don't hesitate to ask. Good Luck!!

Welcome to our forum.

If you have a trailer you should have signs on it. Even if you hand make them. Keep us posted on this.
