times are hard and we are al/mostlyl struggling for work/new clients. if you are a one man band, is it worth the hassle of van signage against the risk of being broken into? the minute you write electrical or any trade on your van, imo you are askin for it. even all the lads i know who work for big firms, will not leave all their personal tools etc on a firms van. firms want maximum exposure but this advertises your tools too.
as a one man band, is it worth the risk of loosing the lot? you may loose work but not that much if you advertise correctly. i dont see many people writing down phone numbers from vans but i do see them calling the owner to ask them to move the vehicle.
i do have web presence and local phone books etc but whats your opinion guys? as another thread i just read, one job can pay for the hassle of posting flyers etc but it cant replace your tools and if it does, you need a big job with plenty of contingency added to the quote!
im really tempted to sign write my van but i live in a flat at the mo and have no garage. anyone similar? wherever you live, there are bad ones out there who will have your pants down if you blink! as they say, you dont s*** on your own door step and so they come to you from elsewhere! sorry for the rant but just been realistic
