I recently started back on the tools and i haven't had any inspiration with regards to a Trading Name, Which as my Surname is Mayne shouldn't have been difficult.

Any Suggestions?

I did consider "Sparks & Mensa" with a catch phrase "from house bashing to Periodic Inspection Reports" but i haven't got the balls to put that on my Van!!

What is the Best sign Written Van you have seen?

There is a Plumber near me called Robin Wigley and his Van says "Plumbing and Eating" with a picture of an overweight man in overalls holding a spanner. invariably it can be seen parked outside a cafe!!

Very good guys keep them coming i had thought of the Ring Main pun but felt it might be wasted on joe public as most of them don't know what a ring is!

I had thought of becoming like a gimicky themed co. like putting cow horns on the van, wearing a stetson and playing country and western on the radio all day or getting the van resprayed pink and camping it up to try and cash in on the pink pound, what do you think?

You are right though Mayne Electrical Services sounds ok , Thanks it could be worse my surname could be Pratt, Pratts Electrical services doesn't do it
