New name idea!!! KEGZ Lawn & Landscape Rescue

Well, ive been away for a while. Some might remember how i worked with my big brother. But got out of the biz, because working with him wasn't working for me.

Right now im pulling wrenches (mechanic lol) at my local Chevy dealer. But i know i don't wanna do that **** forever haha.

So another thing is im now a Volunteer Firefighter, and really enjoy it, and am starting my EMT classes in a week...

So i was thinking about a potential business...

"KEGZ Lawn & Landscape Rescue" I was thinking put a stripe on my truck, and an emblem and number (like Engine number)... I really think that it would stand out, keep my truck squeaky clean, and my equip...

Hell, as it is im an Exmark guy. I could put some vinyl on them and number them too.

What you guys think?

Ill post my FD's logo, and the one i whipped up in Paint...

Just a rough draft lol, and brain storming... And as it is in a few weeks ill be getting my light bar, so that would just add to the whole affect. And if the idea took off, i would just put amber light bars on future trucks...

I'm always up for off the wall names but, I don't like this one. Sounds like a fireman working for beer money! (Not knocking fireman, was a paid operator for 3yrs and have been a volunteer for 9yrs.)

There is a guy I know who is also a paramedic, company is named Turf Medic, his lettering and fonts are simular to what is seen on most ambulances. As far as your name goes, if you are going to go with the fire department theme then I would change your name to something more fitting, maybe replace KEGZ with the name of the area you work in?

As far as the name Kegz, we have a KEG landscape in MA, and I always think about a keg of beer when ever I hear his name. I think the KEG stands for his kids names
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
