Company Colors

What would be the best color to use for my business. I have White and Red trucks. What would be the best color to go with?
Everyone in my area has white and I'm thinking of going red what do you think? Is this a good marketing idea?

Prairie

I think it is a great Idea. Any thing that makes you stand out and get you noticed will help business. Advertising can be expensive and one of the best advertisement is your truck and Equipment. Remember the more you tell the more you sell. Big phone number and company name on you truck and trailer can be read easily. Nothing beats sucess like sucess people want a good company to do there work. Sharp looking Equipment gives this feeling. Clean polished sharp looking apearance can get the cheese. Good Luck.

Whatever color you like. But I think you should stay consistent.
Trucks all 1 color. Trailers all 1 color. ect...

Thanks for the info, I think I'll go out and get the other trucks painted red. This way I'm the only one with this color.

You can't go wrong with RED

I have red trucks and I love them. My leterheads are red and I use red anytime I can.

Everyone else uses green, tan and white. I like to stand out from the rest.

Besides, red is one of the "good" colors. Red, Black, White and Silver. The best colors for resale!

I also use red. Red truck, trailer, equipment, uniforms. I'm the only company in my area that is red. Have gotten some compliments about it also.
