Why don't you paint the trucks the same color? Don't you have 3 or 4 different color trucks?

Yea we have two black trucks a white truck and a red truck,

I thought about it but I don't know what color I would pick to paint em all, and at this point it's not really something I care much about.

once your company is established and you have more work then you can handle, branding isn't really that important. It's when your new in business, having all matching trucks might make a difference and having everything uniform might help your image and professionalism. once you have more work then you can handle like goldpro does, having 2 or 3 different colored trucks doesn't matter. that would be a waste of money, it would be nice to have a matching fleet all lettered the same and painted the same color, and even numbered 1-4 or whatever. it's more important that he makes payroll each week then paint a truck to match the other one. but someone who only has 1 employee or works by themselves that has much lower operating costs like me and buys a second truck can paint the other truck to match and redo the body and make everything all uniform if I wanted to. my operating costs are very small compared to someone like the goldpro, he probably spends more a year in just gas then I make even. maybe not but for him to be spending 60k a year on fuel with 4 trucks running and two mowing crews doesn't sound too crazy.
