both phone numbers on truck?

Me and a partner own a landscape company an we got business cards with both our names an numbers at the bottom which looks good. So if I hand out a card an introduce my self they know my name an remember it.. An vice versa for my partner. But now we want to get the trucks lettered an new t shirts made.. Would it look or be silly to have both phone numbers on truck/ trailer and shirts ?

Why wouldn't you have one unified business number? Two numbers is just asking for confusion.

What Reflection said. You want to make it easy for people to contact you, not make them think about how they're going to do it. For a unified number, take a look at Google.com/voice It's free and powerful in it's configurability.

I agree that it's def easier.. Just wanted 2 numbers so not just one of us was getting all the calls to split up the volume between us

Try google voice. You can have one number that rings both of your phones so you will still be splitting the phone duties without the confusion of two numbers. You can also both makes calls from your personal cell that show your main biz number as the number you are calling from.

Problem solved

Here's a post I wrote last year that gives a quick overview of what you can do with Google Voice. As Beachy said, you can add multiple phones for the calls to ring through to.

We go with one phone number. We feel it is easier this way and less confusing.

Google Voice is also great in a sense that you can block incoming phone calls. So if you find yourself getting bombarded with SEO marketers and individuals calling from across country saying they work at a local golf course or whatever you can block them easy. Honestly this feature alone is worth having it.
