    I got my last van signed, im not sure whether to do this one or not?

    i notice near me it seems to be 50/50 with windy vans

    I got my last one signed because i though it looks pro and obviously is advertising, i dont pay much last one only cost me £40 so quite happy to buy some.

    but whats the reasoning behind you guys who havent got sign writing? cant be arsed?
    or so no one knows who you are?

    I didnt find it brought a lot of work but did get the odd enquiry from time to time

    adamangler I followed your example and got my signage off ebay, 2 sides, rear door and bonnet £49.99

    Reason I went that route is I asked 4 local firms for quotes, not a single one called back.

    Yes it makes the van look a hell of a lot better and already (I only finished doing the signage just after Christmas) I have got 6 new customers.

    Bit trickier than it looks so allow plenty of time and pick a wind free day.

    I have all my vehicles sign written.the only problem is,when when you get a bad payer!!!! who pays cash,cheque etc.you have to park your van half way down the road because they know your gonna bang the door down.

    I got mine done, both sides and rear doors cost £120 but I intend keeping the van for four years so that works out at £2.50 a month. If it doesn't bring any work in. So what it looks professional and I'm in trouble if I can't stand to lose £2.50 a month.

    both sides, front and back, about an hour to do. (this was before i started windows so need to update it) People pay too much for stuff they can do themselves, Just got my ply wood to ply line van for £20, another £150 saved.
