    Watch out for that typo- You got it spelled "moving". Otherwise I like it. I take it 'domestic' is Aussie for 'residential'?

    Does that say, "A Perfect cut Moving Services" or does it just look like that?

    I would start by putting a "w" in mowing. ;)

    Tony is the slogan at the bottom something that you have been using? I am not being critical because I don't know if there are lots of guys in Australia that don't ride or if that is a unique business identifier. Ya know like when they say Golden arches, people know that its McDonalds. I think its a good idea.

    I like the color and graphics too.The only thing I couldn't get to work was the phone number. :p :waving: :p Nice ad!

    Ha Ha, thanks mate!

    Funny about that phone number, a lot of you guys seem to have probs with it :dizzy: :help:

    over here in scrubville a number that looks like that is a mobile or cell as you's call em.

    The ride on specialist bit, yep, i use that in a lot of ads, it sets me apart from the guys with a pushy and mtd etc, who do yards, I do 1/2 acre plus and though many elcheapo mower guys do it, kinda, comparing the work is comparing apples to oranges, specifing ride on attracts those who want a ride on guy, not a yardie with a little 36''er.

    different industry here, and we are a weird bunch so whatever works we do, regardless if it makes sence LOL!

    Thinking on dropping the email and making the WWW longer too...

    Thanks mate!

    Well, this may sound like I'm being picky, but I'm not really. It's the "Phone Tony" part. When you read it, it's ok. When you say it, it sound like your saying "Phoney".
    I wouldn't use it for that reason. I had a friend whose name was Fortune. He named his company Fortune Lawn Service. No one would hire him because every one thought his prices would be too high. He changed his company name and had to stop advertising. It may make a difference.

    Great point!

    I'll see if they still have time to change things, maybe chane "phone" to Call'.

    Thanks for that tip, and Phone did dominate over my name too.

    Thanks for that mate!
