Does the signage on your trailer really work?

    You bet it does. I have an enclosed trailer, so it's like a billboard sign.
    Had a guy last week call me from seeing my trailer and wrote down the phone number. (Saw this guy on the road stopped by my rig and wondered what he was up to) Anyways, he has this 1.6 acre property on the lake (right beside another on I do) with lots of trees, bushes, sttep ditch at the road, etc. So I tells him that it's hard for to quote a firm price with all the trimming, so I tells him "ballpark" about $200 per cut, and he says "OK, when can you start". Gotta love it.

    Congrats on the fat job. I have small signs on my open trailer and I know for sure they generate work. A guy was rollerblading while I was working at a lawn down the street and I saw him stop at the trailer. Later he called and asked if I can give him an estimate. 2 years later he is still a great customer and is also a 6 ap fert/weed customer too. On top of that I got a 25 buck gift cert for a neat restaurant in town for a Christmas bonus. All from that sign.
    Sounds like you are doing it right.
