We are always telling our customers that signs bring business. Apperance brings customers, Right ?
Why do so many sign companies drive and show up to the job in rolling junk ?
I have been in the sign business for myself for over 25 years and take great pride in it. I started out very simple, a van with chrome wheels and lettering. Very clean and professional looking. Today I operate 12 cranes and bucket trucks. Each truck is bought new and then we add lots of chrome, polished diamond plate and every work accessories to make life easier. Each truck is identical in color, design and lettering. They are washed every week, waxed and bodywork done asap. Very clean and professional. We make a statement everytime they are on the street.
I do get alot of work just from my trucks, one job was a $ 275,000 change over project because a salesman saw my trucks and called from his car.
Some of us sign companies have big investments in our equipment and employees. If you want the better work and the bigger dollars, make the investment. Your customers will not question your ability or price if you look and provide professional services
If you appear as a second class contractor, you will be treated as one. You will make our industry 2nd rate also
