Great article. I disagree with the high dollar investment on lettering your van. I spent just over $1,700.00 on mine and in 6 years got 1 call that said "I saw your van". I think it should look clean and professional but I think that can be done for under $1,000.00. The rest of the info is great advice and if applied would definitely produce great results!

Hey Shawn,

You sound right on there. Its hard for potential customers to see a moving ad and get a number.

Fritz may also be including customer retention. When an existing client sees me come in with a professional wrap, i am leaving a more professional impression. So it may not be so noticeable from new customers, but it is a great revenue stream from the perspective of keeping existing clientele.

All the best.

This whole argument about van wraps is interesting. What about the neighbors seeing it sit there for 1-2 hours?

It’s funny how many customers read my services on the side of my van and say, oh you do tiles or leather/upholstery/hard floors too...
While out and about and people in shopping centre car parks also say hi and ask for my card too mostly at the liquor store haha

I get asked for biz cards all the time from people walking their dogs past my van.
I don't have it wrapped, just business name and phone number.
