Paint scheme for my trucks, please vote and make comments.



I started trucking last year with 1 black truck. Now we have a small fleet of trucks and trailers. I think it's about time that they all look the same. My question is what do you think of the colour scheme that I came up with.

Keep it simple, especially at your size. Painted alu frames on trailers look like shit in 2 years anyway. I don't know if you saw our company's scheme, but it's simple as shit, eye-catching enough, and makes the trucks different enough to make them undesirable to steal. Keep in mind that if you go with an off the wall look like that they will remember you at the scales, so one run in = shitstorm for years.

Please do, because I know crimson logic charges $10 EACH shipment and they don't fax your paperwork to the broker [we do that for you] and the don't give you your entry number either [which we also do]. I don't know much about smart border but we took some of their clients.

Let me know and I can talk to my boss and get you a 30 day trial of our system - which I guarantee you'll have no complaints with and if you like it we can get you started.

Here's our brochure which covers pricing:
http://www.avaal.com/ace/acebrochure.pdf

and the web address:
http://www.avaal.com/ace

the pricing also can vary, I know for one client [they have over 500 shipments per month] we're charging $4.00 per manifest and $0.50 each additional shipment. i.e. 1 manifest with 4 shipments - $4.00 + 4($0.50) = $8.00 which includes faxing paperwork and entry number.

It would be expensive if you pay to get it done.
What is your companies website do you have an example of your trucks?

If your trucks stick out you might get pulled into the scales, however if you pass inspection they don't bother you for a year. My friend has a show truck it looks great he in the past 15 years has never been pulled into the scales. However I have been pulled in once last year and another of my trucks got pulled in last year and one this year. I guess it could go both ways.

Did you consider getting them vinyl wrapped instead of paint?
