Need A Catchy Name For New Maintenance Company

Posted by Anonymous on 250 Points
So my dad is looking to possibly start his own company with a guy he knows. He didn't get too specific about it, but basically he wants to start a maintenance business that looks to target companies/factories/offices, etc. I dont think he's looking to target home owners, he wants to go large scale. He mentioned maintenance work, technical support..not sure what else. He's located in Indiana, just south of Ft. Wayne. His name is Scott, if that matters. He wants it to be catchy, but professional. A tagline would be great too. Thanks for the help!!

    Please tell Scott for me that if he goes with his first name in his business name he'll forever look like a one-man dog and pony show - Scott's Cleaning and Maintenance. Now that really instills confidence, a huge organization, one you'd trust with the keys to the kingdom, right?

    My suggestion would be to go with something that sounds more substantial. For a name - one out of the blue as an example - Professional Service Corp. (or Inc. or LLC because he will have to incorporate...for a variety of reasons.)

    And for a tagline, something like Expert Maintenance & Technical Support.

    Hope those help for starters. They're not catchy, but then can be very effective.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I know he wont use his name in the title, and if he were thinking about it..Id slap him.

    I was just brainstorming, and came up with these. Are they too dull?

    Seasoned Maintenance Services
    Mixed Maintenance Services

    I kind of wanted to emphasize experience and variety, as in a variety of offered services. Which is better?

    Your names are fine. Remember that the companies they'll be targeting won't care much about their name (just if they sound professional enough, as Phil mentions). They'll want to see a list of clients, if they're bonded, etc.
