    Was heading out to give an estimate today in an area I have no customers yet. Made a wrong turn to go to the house from the back way and my cell phone rings.
    Seems the lady on the corner I just turned saw my truck (with signs on the side) and remembered receiveing one of my mailers I sent out last week. Long story short.. I know have a new customer for the rest of this season and all of next. Won't know about the estimate till tomorrow.

    That's nice! I had my homemade magnet/s stole so I just made a stencil on poster board and then sprayed with removable paint. It actually looks more pro now and no one has tried to remove it. Although u have to re do it each time u wash your truck. Maybe that's why I've not washed mine in over a month. No calls from the sign yet though, hopefully that will change. Great story!:weightlifter:

    yeah i bought some magnets for my truck and i had got one account and then almost a new one but she called me at the last minute and said that she had some1 in the family that was goin to do it for her, i was pissed but i got over it. however in LA if you advertise on your vehicle and its not registerd as a commercial vehicle and u wreck they will jack ur insurance and other wicked ****. imma still use em when im stationary at a job site.
