I've been looking at the same thing....not as far as the spray jugs, but the rest of it.

I don't want to overdo it and turn into George Custer Cleaners, but good branding couldn't hurt.

^^ LOL True.

Nice, AC...........green and yellow looks pretty good, I think the only combo I like better is green and blue together.

I would like to recommend the Cabela's Corporate Outfitter for branding options.  They do really great embroidery and all pretty cheap.

I can get pretty much anything embroidered for $5 once you are set up with them.

For an independent Branding is a must do. If i could only get people to put my co. name on their arm like harley davidson i wouldn"t have to market at all.LOL
I think it"s the first thought people think when they see a brand is professionalism it just helps opening up a door.

I agree Pete, there is a sizeable difference in appearance between a well branded cleaner and one that is not. It can be over-done, but in most cases it certainly helps with your company's image.

I don't know if the tools need any branding, but everything is else is fair game. I used to give a fitted ball cap to the customer with young kids with my embroidered logo on it....cost me $10 per hat and I still see them being worn around the parks and baseball fields.

This is somthing i want to try have my van or vans volunteer for a float puller at a local parade. Another brain storm volunteer with employees with uniforms and pick up trash after a parade with your vans following a parade a nice community give back just a thought that won"t cost alot of money.

HAHAH...I love the idea of the company van rolling behind the parade cleaning up the mess. That would be a great idea....sure would give you some real "green" credibility.

Why not go all out. Donate a dozen rugs to be laid on the route ahead of the parade. Pick them up as you go and clean them on a pull-behind flat bed as the anchor for the parade.

Sky is the limit for things like this. Sometimes the goofiest work the absolute best. I still remember the water fight that was held in North Carolina between 7 cleaning companies using their truck mounts......heat turned off of course...as part of a charity event.

Goofy, but fun and it drew a lot of attention.

ya have been considering taking the truck into the vehicle wrap place, they can wrap anything and do a really good job.

Their designer is awsome so Im sure she could come up with something nice looking for the TNT. Also curious about wrapping the Little giant since it gets those nasty looking water stains. They carry some really high end automotive vinyl that can handle high temps

I think the more branding the better, hard to imagine too much... unless your putting your face on the side of your trucks, thats just plain tacky.

realtors do that here and its so damn cheesy looking

but I like the idea of wrapped wands, sprayers, tile tools, chem jugs for sure and what ever else.

The idea with the chem jugs is it makes your customers feel that you have your own line thats tried and true, Ive had some in the past peeping in the van trying to see if that can figure out what is getting the carpet so clean so easily..

of course I tell them it would never work the same running that stuff in the rug doctor lol

Around here, you have to be very careful how you transport your chemicals. If they are not in their original containers, you can be cited since you can't say for certain which MSDS goes with that chemical.

No kidding, I was warned 3 years ago after being pulled over on a spot check. I used to carry my chemicals in plain jugs that I would mix up in the morning for use during the day. The State Patrol didn't like my efficiency at all. Evil or Very Mad
