Trailer Wrapping?

Wondering how much it would cost to get an 18' trailer wrapped with my Logo & stuff?

You don't have to wrap the whole trailer. I do a wrap for the picture (logo) and use vinyl lettering for the rest. It cost about $1500/16 ft. trailer.
The question that matters most to me is not the cost, but the value to me. Yes, the trailer is a moving billboard, but how much business does it generate. Last year someone saw the crew at a gas station and call and I got a %5000 (gross) job from it. So I am having my 2nd trailer done. I think it is a good thing to do.
Just remember there is additional expense. You must keep the trailer looking good or it is a negative advertisement for you. It has to be kept washed and clean. My guys hit the fenders all the time. I have to keep that repaired.

I have an open trailer with signs on the sides and on the gate, and i have been thnking about getting an enclosed trailer. My question is does having an enclosed trailer with a nice logo and lettering and etc. does it really make a difference. The other reason i am thinking about an enclosed trailer is because im tired of having to hookup/unhook the trailer everday/night. So with the trailer being done up does it really make a difference in advertising.

I forget what the quotes were for my enclosede trailers. 16'&22'. We did a lot of work for the owner of a sign-a-Rama franchise so we worked out a deal for trailers/trucks wrapped and 1 truck and equipment just lettered. When I get a call/email/online request from a new potential client I always ask where they herd of us. We get far more calls from the fully wrapped trailers/trucks than from the truck that is only lettered. Even though the lettered truck does more miles than all the others combined.
