Make sure you're not a bad driver with advertising on your truck, that could be bad advertising.
All my trucks have signage, I've actually been reported to the office 3 times for cutting someone off. :laughing: I love it when the office number is forwarded to my phone, fun conversations. :clap:I don't have my truck lettered, but I do have my dump trailer lettered because it sits on jobs as a billboard and hopefully to help prevent theft.
I've gotten three calls total from my lettered trailer in three years.
Two were from people on the road that said one of my guys was driving crazy and cut them off. I don't have any guys, it was me:laughing: And both times I was slowly merging into traffic with a turn signal on.
The third call turned out to be a nice job though:laughing:
All in all I wouldn't mind getting my truck lettered maybe with no phone number, just for the professional look. But for now I'm happy without it. But I'm also a one man show and stay busy without it. If you need to keep a few guys busy, it may be worth it to get your name out there a lil more.
That's exactly what I was doing too:laughing: I drive like a grandma most of the time, but sometimes you just have to force your way in!:laughing:All my trucks have signage, I've actually been reported to the office 3 times for cutting someone off. :laughing: I love it when the office number is forwarded to my phone, fun conversations. :clap:
I am not an aggressive driver really, but if I have my turn signal on to change lanes and someone is being an azz, I "ease" over anyway. :laughing:
having your company logo on a work truck/van is how you look professional...without it you look like a side jobber
I have my van completely wrapped and get a new van every 5 years...I want to look successful and professional
get your logo!
So you letter your truck for what? To look professional, yet you don't get calls from it. Hmmm. I'd rather be professional, not look it.I wouldn't expect 1 phone call from your logo'd work truck....the only call ive ever gotten from mine was from an overly aggressive driver I had to cut off because he wouldn't let me in
I actually agree with him. I think it looks professional but in the demographic I'm in its all about word of mouth. You can get leads from lettering but most of the time they are leads to people you don't want. People who don't know anybody that just want something done cheap or just want to use you for a price to use against the next guy. Wastes a lot of time. But again, demographics can be different.So you letter your truck for what? To look professional, yet you don't get calls from it. Hmmm. I'd rather be professional, not look it.
