Advertising Tips for Your Hauling Business

Have you recently desired to join the entrepreneurs across this great nation of ours and create a business? Some people have caught onto the vision that they can make a lot of money by providing simple services that people are lacking in their communities. One of these needed services in many neighborhoods is junk hauling removal. It’s so simple to start up this business but maybe you haven’t had a lot of calls coming in for jobs. Let’s talk about a few things you can do to make sure you have plenty of work ahead of you in the hauling industry.

Price Check

Make sure that you prices are comparable to your competitors. Maybe your prices are too high and need to be dropped a little bit. If you go onto Craigslist you may be able to see the prices of different companies or check the yellow pages and give a few of the companies calls to find out what they are charging for what services. It’s a simple way to raise the amount of jobs you’ll get by putting your services at a slightly lower price than everyone else’s.

Craiglist or your local classifieds online

Many people have turned to the internet to find any services and products that they need. Make sure you are advertising online through Craigslist or your local classifieds online. It normally doesn’t cost very much to put up a small advertisement and the jobs will soon outweigh the cost of advertising. Also, put up a picture next to your advertisement on Craigslist because people like to know who they are hiring to do their job.

Fliers in the neighborhood

It will only take a minute but after you have completed a job in a certain neighborhood you should put some fliers out to the houses surrounding the neighborhood. The flier should state your services and mention that you have recently hauled some junk away from one of their neighbors. This will also help in the word of mouth advertising.

Referrals are the best advertisements

As you go about your different jobs, a satisfied customer is your biggest asset. Simply ask if they know anyone else that has a load of junk that needs hauling away. Everyone has an aunt or parent or grandparent that has a shed full of unnecessary items. Word of mouth is the best way to promote your business and get you more junk hauling jobs.

Create your own “moving billboard”

If you have a truck you use for your hauling than advertise on the truck. You drive the truck everywhere and people will see the name of your company, the service you provide, and hopefully a large phone number that they can contact you. It’s a passive way of advertising that won’t take a lot of extra effort on your part.
