    A rubbish removal service I've used a couple of times called Trailer Trash. Basically a dumpster mounted on a tandem trailer.

    There is a company on Sydney's northern beaches who make cutting oils and coolant.

    They are HOLE LUBRICANTS.

    I dealt with them years ago, the dad's name was Richard and his son Andrew Hole.

    Poor guy, had to agree when anyone called him an A.Hole...

    I have been giggling about that for years, now I get to share it. THANKS

    Reminds me of our neighbour over the road when I was a kid - Bruce Steynes.

    He joined the navy

    The first rank in the navy is Seaman

    I have no doubt all readers will figure out how Steynes was pronounced ....



    he was a top bloke, but seriously, I wouldve joined the army or the RAAF

    In the army he would have been Private Steynes

    one semi funny name that comes to mind, is a company by the name of Big Decks, and i have to assume the owner is a kiwi.

    also a mate of mines old carpentry business.....Totally Hammered.

    Another firm I did some branding work for rejected my slogan idea which I think was a real shame.

    They were known as Ocean Paving and I wanted them to have the slogan "NO TERN UNSTONED"

    They didn't get it

    A couple more to add to the list....

    A flat bed tilt tray tow truck getting around Adelaide branded as Camel Tow.

    Theres a structural steel and rigging mob here who's motto reads 'We'll stick it up anywhere'

    There was a rigging and scaffolding company here (no longer trading) whose motto was 'The best erections...guaranteed!!' .

    Theres also a maintenance plumber getting around here who appears to specialise in removal of tree roots from pipe work, or so the 'Are you rooted' on the side of the van would leave me to believe.

    In perth there used to be (probably still is) an earthmoving business owned by Ivan Jerkov who proudly displayed his name in big bold letters across the back of his trucks like this:

    I JERKOV
    EARTHMOVING CONTRACTORS

    Or something like that..... Was over 25 years but that's pretty close. The drivers of Jerkov's arch rival Gereservitch Earth Moving used to do a wanker gesture every time they passed one of Jerkov's trucks. There was never any love lost between the driver from these rival businesses.

    I used to love driving past a shop on Alexander parade Fitzroy - from memory it sold all things to do with navigation and there was an ad for a particular brand of compass, where the slogan read "get one or get lost"

    Default A Few Quirky Business Names

    There is a garden centre at Minlaton on the Yorke Peninsula, South Australia called "Yorkereations"

    I recall travelling through Lorne, Victoria many years ago and chuckled at the name of the fruit & Veg shop, "Lorne Greens."

    Also, at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains was a restaurant called "Grillers in the Mist."

    I just saw a furniture van sized truck going up the road towing what looked like a tree hogger, but was actually a big vacuum system. Painted on the side was INSULATION REMOVERS, phone * * * * * * must be a new industry.
