    You're mowing part time for yourself right?

    Some kind of signage would be a good business idea. You never know who's going to drive by or look out their window needing an LCO.

    I agree with Goat. It also helps when you are driving around a neighborhood looking for an obscure address. Folks don't call the cops! On a serious note, magnetic signs don't cost that much and lend a degree of professionalism, however make sure you have a commercial auto insurance policy as many personal auto policies contain exclusions for vehicles with signs or logos for a business.

    I just received my magnetic signs from an online company in Florida. I priced around and found they had the best price for what I wanted. I couldn't be happier. $65 including the shipping for 2 signs was money well spent. And that was for the deluxe layout with 3 colors!

    Here is a link. I had them in 3 days.

    Do you have a trailer? If so you could try what I do. I have permanent signs on my trailer and on my truck I have smaller window decals w/name and number. I'm part-time as well and the decals still get the name out when your not hooked up and they don't take up as much space on truck. And, if for some reason you deside to stop it is much easier to remove a couple decals on the window than a huge one on your doors.
