What makes your vehicle stand out from the competition?

The graphics package developed with Signature Signs here in Enfield certainly helps us stand out from the competition. While we designed the logo in house we left it to the experts to layout the Van graphics. Our website is advertised on all sides. Because we are on the border of Massachusetts and Connecticut we chose to display only our toll free number on the van. As you can see the paw prints extend over the roof for full impact. We carry a broad array of cleaning equipment and chemicals within the van as over the years we have found that one method alone is not appropriate for all cleaning situations. We rotate equipment as jobs require. Also in the van is our propaganda package of Door Hangers, Carpet Cleaning FAQ's, Spotting Guidelines for Customers, Teddy Bear shaped refrigerator magnets and our most popular item, presented with each invoice, scented teddy bear soaps. We are an IICRC certified firm led by a Certified Master Textile Cleaner. The van sets us apart from the average cleaner through clean colorful graphics, a friendly name and easy web and phone contact info.
