Nice stuff. How does the 1 ton work for you as a dump? Do you have enough payload with it? Only asking because I may consider one in the future and just curious how much it's rated for with the dump body?

Everything looks great! Your website is one of the best i have seen in this business. It is very easy to navigate and shows you everything you need to know. Also, i like that you did not include a form that someone has to fill out to contact you, i have seen that on a lot of website and it keeps people from calling. Very nice!

Some of my best leads came from filling the form out on my site or email. Most of the worst come from when the phone rings. Maybe it's a sign of the times I guess.

But this is a discussion for a different thread

Believe it or not I was going to put one of those forms on the website to help screen people and figure out if they are looking for quality work or looking for the cheapest landscaper. But I think the website was worth every bit of what I spent to get it made. Now I just need to figure out how to make it pay for itself, still learning about the whole optimization thing.

I'm not sure what the maximum payload on the truck is even though I should. I'm able to squeeze 8yds mulch in it and can haul 3 yards of soil or stone in it without it sagging to much and getting dangerous.

Yea that's a tough one to do. I got some pointers from some people on here. I know I've greatly improved my searchability but it's still pretty tough. Is your website designer just in charge of design only? But I was definitely way off before and my search level was VERY low. Lots of stuff with titles, keywords, and descriptions and making each page unique helps from what I've been told. I'd say your SEO is something that is vital to fix. Today's generation is on the Internet.
