Hey PPL I can help you out with a logo and such. What did you have in mind? Sounds like you really want the logo to crisp and professional to meet your target client. Do you have a color scheme you follow (uniform, truck and trailer, etc)?

Hi Chris,

Welcome to our forum!

I liked your introduction it was very well thought out! Can you tell us all a little about what got you to start your business?

Why did you decide to go for the high end niche?

Thanks!

With all those years your father had in running a business, what advice did he give you that helped you the most?
