  • Help me think of a business name

    I just found this place and it is awesome, I can tell I am going to learn alot from these forums. I am in the process of starting a small finish carpentry business but I cannot think of an adequate or catchy business name. Can any of you throw some ideas my way. Thanks Ash

    If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run.
    And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.
    There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell for a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only, are this man's lawful prey

    make sure when you think of a name that you check with the city and make sure nobody has it. and then register it with the dba people.... doing business as. what area are you in since you left most of your sign up info blank?

    (your name) custom carpentry
    interior trim specialist
    whole house trim company.
    (if you use whole house trim co) be careful when you answer the phone... since your name is ash..

    ash whole house trim company... may I help you? (lol)

          If you are considering diversifying your business later to building remodeling or developing then choose a name that will hold up to all those situations. Ash Construction would work, frankly why do you need a tricky name for trim? Don't builders know you by your name....there are pitfalls about using your name i.e. bankruptcy, bad press, published lawsuits, etc. Personally , I would use a name like the name of your town, a borough, a lake, river or a landmark item........ construction co. You know 20 years from now you may be building bridges and high rises!

            If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't use a location-specific name. If you move, you might want to keep the same business name.

            Perhaps something more generic, but still relating to the area - geologic, paleantologic, landmark (as someone else mentioned), animals....

              I think Andrew and Boulderscott are on the right track. I used my last name and kinda wish I had something a little more creative but I guess it really doesn't matter in the big scheme of things. People will hire you due to your quality work and reputation, not your business name.

                    Ash is ok, name or not.
                    I like to see something creative, without names.
                    Do Ash Construction maybe...but print everything with "trim specialists" --- "trim experts" --- " wood trim experts" under the logo.....that way its like its part of your name. The big checks just go to Ash construction....

                        Thanks for all the ideas keep them coming. I would rather not use my name in the bbusiness name, unless you come up with something really creative. I have came up with a good slogan, "Finishing the world, one house at a time".

                          How about "Doing the world a favor, since 2005"

                          My company slogan is "There's a little bit of quality in everything we do."

                            Hello,
                            New to the forum, figured I'd drop my two cents worth of humor in...."Do your best, caulk the rest....." and "We do it nice cause we do it twice" are common unofficial slogans around the job site.... Can't say they're sign worthy but worth a smile. JDB

                              Thanks for the reply JDB, I have never heard "do your best caulk the rest", It is funny, not sure if I'll use it though.
