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?

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?

heres there address to the page: http://www.pinnacle-finance.com/Default.aspx

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?
