      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Howdy Usa! Do You Have A Term For "a Man With A Van"?

Recommended Posts

Last night I built my bro a little website to help boost his latest business enterprise - http://essexmanwithavan.co.uk/

 

Now I am thinking of writing a "Man With a Van" fitness article, obviously with a link top my bro's site. Average Joe's fitness etc. But as my main market is America, so need to ensure that readers are not completely lost. Do you have a different phrase for "a man with a van"? Joe with a tow? Chuck with a truck?

 

For those who do not even know what I am talking about, a man with a van is simple a chap that owns a van (like a transit) and does odd jobs, deliveries etc.

 

Cheers

 

Jon.

That's not a term that registered anything with me. Once I hit the site though, we do have a moving company here in the U.S. that was started by college students called "2 Guys And A Truck". That's a brand name though - and it's also not really the same thing.

 

Once I know what you do, though, the "Man with a Van" makes perfect sense. If I was searching for that site, I would probably use a term like "Household Hauling" (for the leaves and such) or "Large Item Courier Service" for most of the rest.

 

I'm not sure what I'd use in an article. "Man with a Van Couriers" would probably do it in the shortest amount of time.

Why is your main market, America? When your brother is in Essex?

 

In any case, I don't think we have a specific term for that business, so tacking on phrases like "odd jobs" and "hauling" would be appropriate to clarify.
