Get-R-Cut --> bad landscaping name?

so ive been in the business for coming up on my fifth year.... never had commercial accounts. had plans for partnership but fell through. had 40 accounts two years ago and now im around 20. people died, had some undercutters and i need to get back above 40.

registered my business name as "Get-R-Cut".... ya know, like larry the cable guy get-r-done.... i think it may be affecting how many replies i get from flyers/advertising....

my buddy has a decent name, but sounds more professional. sunway landscaping and his business is non-stop. hes been around longer but still

pass out 5000 flyers and maybe 2 calls? what is this b.s.?! and some of my customers love the name. others go... get.... "R"..... cut, i dont get it. like where have you been the last 5 years.

what do you think? is a name change in order?

is the get-r-done with get-r-cut slogan a thing of the pass? would be bummer because ive had a killer logo for it since i started.

any and all comments would be appreciated.

I can see why people might not go with you based on your name. I am not trying to offend you, but it makes you come off as sort of a redneck, almost a fly by night. Some people may hire you just because of this, but more people will stay away from you because of it.

I would change the name to something more professional. We had a guy around here called Get R Done Lawncare for a few years, and more than one of my customers commented on it, making fun of it.

Again, I'm not trying to offend you, just sharing my honest opinion.
