lettering, its gets the point across, and is cost effective. people see me pulling my mower around all year long, they already know what I do, and they my work, they just need to know who i am, and how to get in contact with me and that's all i want on my truck(s). no need to list every single thing i do across my truck bed.

Magnets skip, look cheap, scratch paint, someone can run off with them, body wraps look great. It a billboard on wheels, but suck taking off if youre doing it youself. Basic lettering also looks good, has to be big enough to read, alot easyier to cover up if your selling, trading in.

i think magnets look cheap and temporary, could be viewed by a potential customer that your business is cheap and temporary, and you are looking to make a quick buck and leave them. and wraps look nice, but i personally think they are too busy. they generally have too much information packed onto a flat area, and that screams look at me, i need work. Having just a name and number, says I want neighbors and other people to know who shows up every thursday, from april to october rain or shine, and cuts the grass every single week, and leaves it looking very fresh every single time week after week. Just having a name and number says i'm here without being obnoxious in my opinion. people do take notice to lettering on vehicles especially at stop lights, and in traffic. or lets say, its snowing out, your out plowing your route, and someone sees you drive by their exhausted from shoveling a small portion of their sideway and they instantly see your name and number as you drive by, they call you and want their driveway done, and sidewalks. very simple, they are scanning through all kinds of words, and numbers, just a name and just one number to call, very easy.

now an enclosed trailer I would 100% get that wrapped and go into some detail as to what your company does, still wouldn't go crazy. but simple lettering gets the point across. and can be taken off fairly easily by either yourself or whatever company installed for very little money, if you decide to get rid of the truck for whatever reason.

This is our lettering. Cost about $600. Right after I got it a bunch of people signed up so it must work good. About to add another truck to our fleet. Not changing anything at this point.
