Sign-writing your van is one of the best ways to advertise your business every day while you're on the move. It's the cost-effective, easy way to promote your business.
Upgrade your van to a moving billboard
Mobile advertising – it's pure genius. Sign-writing your van provides an economical and highly effective mobile advertisement that goes wherever you go. Vehicle wraps are one of the fastest growing forms of advertisement, because of their huge visibility on the road.
Whilst you're sat in heavy traffic, having your van sign-written will help to draw the attention of passers-by, (and this could be huge numbers of people if you're in a busy area), many of whom might not have even been aware of your business before. If you think about it, your repeated drives to and from work are the equivalent of running an advert in the local newspaper or hiring a billboard, but at a fraction of the price!
The bottom line is, an eye-catching design with your contact details marked clearly, could be the secret to attracting hordes of new customers.
Brand your van, transform your business
For the majority of small-business owners, sign-writing your van is a no-brainer. Deciding how to do it is the next step.
You could do it yourself, but you run the risk of the work not looking very good. We'd recommend hiring a professional to do the job, because it's the safest way to make sure your van looks professional and doesn't get any unnecessary damage.
When you lease a van with Vanarama, you are required to remove the signage before you return it. So, the best wrapping material to use is vinyl, because it's the easiest signage to remove.
Here's a little checklist of things to remember when you get your van sign-written:
- Make sure you're 100% happy with the design, spelling and colours of your signage. And, don't forget to make your contact details clear - keep contact details to a minimum.
- Get a fixed quote in writing for the job to avoid a surprise rise in cost once the job is done.
- Most sign-writers will travel to you, but to reduce cost further, you could travel to your sign-writer's workshop. It usually takes 2-3 hours, depending on the size of the design.
- What goes up must come down, and particularly when you're leasing a van. Removing the sign-writing yourself could end up damaging the van.
- Agree a fixed price before allowing the professional to start work to avoid surprise costs at the end.
- That's it – job done! Once the signage is removed properly, you can hand your leased van back without worrying that you might incur charges for any damage to the paintwork.
It's written on the van!
At Vanarama, we understand that promoting your business is important. So, our rule is: if the signage is removed when you hand the vehicle back, you can sign-write your van until your heart is content!
