That was fun. What's next? What kind of advertising do you do....yellow pages, newspaper, flyers, direct mail, cold call visits, telemarketing, tv, cable...etc.

Sweet, I'm the only one who uses Alltel. Ya'll are very lucky. Anyways you guys that are using personal insurance while using your truck for business purposes are taking a big risk. Say that God forbid you hit someone and injure or kill them. Your insurance company will say your not insured since you were not using the vehicle for purposes stated in the policy. Hope your family is super wealthy cause the lawyers will take a couple million.

Yea, I noticed the same thing. For those of you who have your work truck under your personal policy check with your agent! One accident and your done!

Greg, what questions??? I can add any time I need to.

back to the top it goes.
INSURANCE++++++++++++++
For those who think a commercial auto/truck policy is too expensive. Have you called for a quote?
After three years without commercial auto...I called the agent that has my business insurance for a commercial policy
on the truck. VERY AFFORDABLE In fact less than regular auto policy. I also upped my business liability insurance from 300K to 1mil for an additional $12.00 per year.
Rest easy guys... get coverage.
Steps off the soapbox.

Accuratelawn is right. Commercial insurance for your truck/trucks is very affordable.
No one should run the risk of not having it.

Another great survey. I wonder how many ppl think of themselves as "lawnboys" or "low on the totem pole" as Stone mentioned in a post on the lawn forum. Other surveys might be about encouraging youngsters to persue this business at age 15 as some of our members are doing. Other survey questions might be about ppl who have employees and who pays under/above table. I like the advertisment questionaire idea, but i would put a scale of sucess with it so we can get an idea of what type of advertisement works out there. Penny papers vs yellow pages vs web page, etc. Job satisfaction surveys, full time vs part time members, survey on who pees in the bushes (JK), how many started with nothing and worked up vs getting a business loan or something, palm pilots vs day calanders and that type of stuff, married vs single, age of members as a whole. I know many ppl have talked about this on the forums, but reading 47 replys that all have 2 cents worth to go along gets confusing and i cant remember. That is my 4 cents worth since you asked for more input on other forum ideas Kirby.

This should bump it to the top again i believe.
