Whether you log hours every day in a car, truck or van, running your service business from a vehicle presents unique challenges some other companies don’t have to face. In order to be effective, you need to turn your vehicle into a mobile office that includes everything you could possibly need to service a client. Different services will have different needs in a vehicle, but when setup correctly, they can be even more efficient than a store front.
Companies that need a lot of large tools to get the job done, such as pool services or appliance repair techs, require more space and typically use Trucks or Vans. Services that don’t require a lot of equipment, such as tech support or a mobile notary, often use a car instead. Regardless of the vehicle type or size, there are a few items that PrintFirm can help you with to make sure your business runs smoothly at every service stop.
You may be wondering “What do these guys know? They’re an online printing service – they’re not like us.” While all of our orders are picked up or delivered via mail, we’ve learned a lot by talking to many different businesses that operate out of their vehicles. Each service is unique, but there are a couple of products that we print for almost all of our mobile business customers.
Get That Paper
Issuing invoices and taking payments out of your service vehicle can be more difficult than if you had a cash register on a counter in a store, but there are ways to make it easier. Writing out invoices can take up a lot of time, especially if you aren’t using the right type of paper. Invoices that already have your business name & contact information can save you a lot of time – particularly when they produce copies for both client & company.
We offer some of the cheapest NCR form prices anywhere that you can print your company logo, name & other key information on. Customize the form to suit the needs of your business and customers, while speeding up the invoicing process & keeping great records for your company. Pick from 2, 3 and 4 page form options based on what will work best for you.
Advertise on the Road
Whether you spend most of your day driving from stop to stop or park your van outside a customer’s location for a full week to get a job completed, car door magnets are one of the most effective ways to keep advertising your business. Be sure to include a big logo, large font & easy to read contact info for others to know exactly what your business offers. They may not need your services tomorrow, but they might in a month – and they’ll recognize your company name when they’re ready to research services because of your simple advertising techniques.
