Yes we take paypal.

The only way I will do free shipping to Canada is First Class Mail, I do not think it has a tracking # just a transaction #. That just tells me when I sent and what you received it.

Well this product just keeps on working. I just came back from a weekend away and I took my son out to the grocery store. On our way out with the weekly munchies there was a woman reading my truck signage and took a card. As I walked up to the truck she started asking me some prices on mulch. She said she took a card and will contact me on Monday.

Love it!!!

Okay I just went back to look at your trailer. You can put one on the back but if you put both of themthere, it would be a waste.
Are you still driving that green truck, if so put one on the back glass hach.

Sometimes I leave a trailer on the street after dropping equipment off, especially the 18' one as I only use it for the excavators and larger tractors (PITA to pull around) and grab a shorter trailer, in this case I do leave post cards in a holder and some people take one.

If I leave an excavator or tractor at a clients I leave a few post cards and let the client know where they are in case someone drop by, this too has brought us in a few contracts.

Next year I have to get yard signs, it's a fairly common request from clients, also need to get some 11 X 14 signs printed on a water proof foam core as there are various places around the city where we are allow to post.

The final place that brings in more inquiries than any other is the outdoor post office boxes that have a roof over them, I have cards in at least 30, get a lot of inquiries and quite a bit of work this way, I will take some pictures when I get back next week......

Yeah I'm still driving that green truck, but I don't really want to put them there since it's not really my truck. I've got space on the one side of the trailer next to my sign but i find a bit low to pick up a card.

I'll think of something

Make a holder much like a lawn sign and attach it to that, inside the trailer make two stake holders that will accepy 3/4" thick x 3 1/2" wide, cut a stake (1 X 4) about 32" long, on one end screw in a piece of 1/4" pluwood 11 X 14, paint it whatevet color, then attach your holder to the plywood, when you arrive at a site, simply put the steak in the holder and remove when you are done, just so you don't loose it.
