Show off your wrapped truck and/or trailer!

We are looking to get our trucks partially wrapped, and two enclosed trailers wrapped as well.

I tried searching for pics, but couldn't find one thread dedicated to just wrapped trucks and trailers.

Also curious for those with full or partial wraps...how did it hold up over time, and cost if you don't mind sharing as well.

Thanks!

How much does it usually cost to letter up an enclosed 16 ft trailer ?

We have 3 enclosed trailers wrapped but am not sharing them to keep Co identity hidden. Each cost around 3k to get done.

Some people don't want their LawnSite identity linked to their company. Prevents issues if you post something about problem customers and the customer decides to google the company and finds it. Situations like that are usually why they run with different names on the website than the actual company name.

Could be some other reason for his decision, however.

thanks for sharing the price info.

I feel like the application part any legit installer can do, they all offer a 1 year warranty etc, and I don't think the major three around here are in danger of going out of business
... so what really makes the difference is the design work. Thinking of getting prices from the three major companies that do wraps here, and possibly paying the design fee from each for a design, going with whichever one looks the best and then seeing if the will match the total install price of the other company (if its significantly less)
I don't intend to start a business relationship by focusing only on price, when the design aspect is whats going to make the biggest difference, which isn't something I would know until paying anyways. I have no idea when it comes to designing a wrap as far as layouts, what works and doesn't or what I think would look good, so I don't want to choose just on price and settle for a design without having another one to compare it to. Does this seem like a good approach?

Didn't you hear, all the successful service companies hide their names from public view.

Here is just a partial list of those companies:

Many years ago when I did not have much of an internet presence you could google my company name and my posts from lawnsite would come up.

Some of you may not care but I dont really need my customers or potential customers reading my posts on here.

That is why I dont want my name or website on here and I am assuming the same for the others.
