Tops-In-Trucks Fleet Design Contest


Our Tops-in-Trucks Fleet Design Contest is an annual salute to outstanding fleet vehicle graphic design. It’s our way of recognizing contractors who are on the leading edge of effective marketing.

Winning fleet vehicles are featured each June on the cover of HVACR Business.

Entries are judged by a panel of experts on the following criteria:

  • Overall Graphic Appeal
  • Creativity
  • Legibility of Contact Information
  • Good Organization of Design Elements

The deadline to enter for 2015 has passed.
