I started like you with small equipment and did ok, but noticed a huge difference in my credibility and respectability when I got a new matching truck and enclosed trailer all pro lettered and looking sharp. I moved from being the guy with a pickup truck to a legitimate (perceived, not that I wasn't before and you aren't now) business.

People will give the small player a shot but you need to be professional and look professional and care for your gear and keep it clean.

Differentiating yourself from others by having the sprayer letting people know a little more about what you do is one step among many.
