New Shop Sign


Recommended Posts

I have been at this self employed thing almost a 2 years now and haven't had a sign out by the road yet. My Wife thought it was time and surprised me with this one on Fathers Day. I finally had a chance to put it up tonight.  Now I can tell customers to look for the sign instead of look for all the equipment setting around when they drop stuff off.

I look back on summer of '19 when I took the chance and went out on my own and how scary it was to now scheduling work a month or better out because there is just so much of it. Phone is ringing all the time. Im tempted to hire someone but not sure I want to go there. Already out growing my shop and my truck but they will both have to do for the time being. So far its been a good ride.

I haven't had much time to take many pictures lately but here are a few since everyone likes pictures.

Like your sign always a good feeling when things work out good when on your own and have the work. Congrats and good luck.

Good to hear things are going well. Do good work at a reasonable price and you’ll never have to worry about running out.  Few smaller shops around here doing the same thing and they’ve almost always got a line up at the door. Crazy how many people won’t do their own work but that is good for you guys.  Getting to be fewer of the smaller shop mechanics around here and the guys that are left are getting to the age where they don’t want to do it anymore or are getting to the point where it’s difficult for them to do it. Had our local a/c guy over the other day to do a line and recharge and we were having a discussion about how the smaller traveling repairmen are disappearing. He said I’m to the point where I wish I could find someone younger to train and take over. Think he was kind of hinting for me to do it. Wouldn’t mind to but time isn’t on my side. Usually keep busy enough just around the farm fixing our own junk.

This right here still amazes me. Even the simplest things sometimes. Some people genuinely don't have time, some have no business touching anything, and some are lazy. All pays the same.

Great sign.  Happy to hear your having success.  Is that the crane you posted about a little while back?  What happened to the quad trac? Nice job on that planter .  Those are great pictures.

Yeah that is the crane I posted about. Glad I got it when I did. Made working on that quad a whole lot nicer. It had a leaking axle seal. That planter went back together way better than expected. The pictures don't do the hill justice.
