haul-away business name You’ve come to the spot where your haul-away business needs an identity. Let’s assume you’ve had some success already just telling friends and neighbors that you are providing this service. But what about those people who don’t know you but could use your service? How are they going to find you if you don’t have a name or have just been calling yourself Joe’s Hauling? You are going to need an actual business name and here are some tips to help you out:

1 – What Is Your Business?

Start a checklist of things to consider with the naming of your business. The first thing on that list should be words that describe what your business is. In the case of a haul-away business you will want to focus on words that say you are picking up and removing items from one location and dropping them off somewhere else. While that may seem wordy, there are single words and short two or three word phrases that will say that for you.

2 – Go Online

A good place to hunt down words and phrases to help define your haul-away business is the internet. You can search for such things as “business name generator” to give you a hand. Also, you can access all kinds of resource material ranging from online dictionaries and Thesauruses to phrase guides and just about anything you can imagine that can help you best define the purpose of your business so you can turn that into your business name.

3 – Go Easy On It

The one important thing to remember when choosing a name for your haul-away business is to keep it simple. That means the name you end up choosing, and you should have several options on your check list, should be not only an easy one to remember, it should be easy to say, pronounce, spell and uncomplicated in every single way.

4 – Bounce It Off Others

Speaking of easy, an easy way to ‘test drive’ your haul-away business name is to try it on friends, neighbors and others. Ask them to tell you what comes to mind when they hear the name. Also, ask them to spell it back to you and to give you any other kind of feedback or suggestions they may have that can maybe make it a better business name. Believe it or not, regardless of how much homework you put into researching a good business name, someone you know may have the perfect suggestion you did not consider.

5 – The Complete Image

When developing a business name you are also creating an image or brand for your haul-away business. So, when you are working on an actual business name, you have to keep in the back of your mind what the name may be like with a logo or brand that will be attached to your business. This may only be in the form of a logo or a fancy type face. Whatever your brand becomes, even if the name is easy to remember, you have to keep the visual representation of your business as easy to read and understand.

I trust these tips have given you something to consider. In today’s competitive economy, you need an edge to stand out against all other business entrepreneurs as well as any competitors that may surface. But putting serious thought into the name you brand your haul-away business with, you will have a better chance of success if it is simple, easy and memorable.
