Just wondering, If anyone here has set their vehicles up with a laptop and mobile printer to provide estimates and invoicing? (for service work) If so, How well is it working or not working? Any one else toy with the idea?

I can't decide between a laptop, or a twenty year old blonde secretary with a clip board.

I think she'd also increase sales.

You guys sound like legends in your own mind! [Linked Image] The problem with the 21 year-old brunette is that who ever was working around her would not get much done done. They may increase sales but at who's expense? (preferbly not mine) LMAO

I use a laptop for estimates and drawings. I don't have a portable printer. I print at the office, or just show the screen.
The drawings are put on a CD or disc if they fit, and plotted at Kinkos. (Full size prints), or I do 8 1/2 X 11 or 17 x 11 in the office, if I can get the detail on a small sheet.

I had thoughts about getting another laptop for the service trucks, but can't justify the costs at the moment. Most of our service work is for national chains, and property management co's, and the billing goes thru our office.
