Many trucking companies, many companies in fact, think they must have a web site. Although I’ve been creating web sites for more than 20 years, I’m conservative on that. I always ask: Why do you want to have a web site?
The problem with web sites is that they cost. Many people choose to spend the initial amount, but if it is built only because they thought they must, then it doesn’t do anything useful, and as a result it is abandoned and gets old fast. You can see these old web sites all over the place.
Web sites should be doing something useful for your customer. The history of your company may be fascinating to you, but it isn’t very useful for your customer. I like reading histories of trucking companies, but I’m not their customer—they are my customers. So unless you want to make a web site for your suppliers, writing your history on your site has a very low priority.
How do your customers find you? If they don’t find you on the internet, and they have no service to receive on your web site, you don’t need a web site.
That said, I think some web presence is useful. If a customer wants to recommend you to another, they can say “try Peacock Trucking—search the web for them” instead of “I’ll send you the phone number once I get back to my office”. All you need is a single page with your name, a short description of what service you provide, and your contact data. Nothing fancy. The fancy stuff will look bad after a few years if unmaintained.
This way your web site does something useful for your customers—it gives them your contact data. Don’t make it hard for them to find that contact data by asking them to click or to scroll down.
One easy way to build this page in a maintainable way at a cost of about $60 per year and a few hours of work is to use the Personal Plan at wordpress.com. You may then discover a few more uses for the site, and it can grow a little. If you see it growing much, ask for help from a professional before it gets too bloated—otherwise the process may eventually break and it may be expensive to fix.
