    When you guys go out flyering, and target a neighborhood, where do you park your vehicle if its a very residential area?? Just wondering as im going to be doing some heavy flying this week.....and also, what do you usually look for when targeting areas to flyer? I have an idea, but would like some outside opinions and ideas!

    if you cant find somewhere to park w/o your equipment how are you ever going to be able to find somewhere to park with your equipment.

    I park in the street.

    What i mean is like, it seems kind of weird to just park in front of some random persons house, get out and leave the truck there while we walk around handing out flyers......

    Just park the truck on the side of the road not infront of a driveway but anywhere safe. Lock the doors and then start shooten flyers...
    Hope you round up some more accounts

    If there is a main street in and out of the area, i would park there (as long as parking is allowed) I have gotten 2 of my best customers from seeing a truck parked near their house.
