Review My Removals Site
 
Hi, I have a new site built using weebly, which I think is a really cost effective way to pump out a new, easy to use website.

Newcastle Man and Van

Let me know what you think as I have not strayed too far from the template provided.

Also, any other feedback is encouraged - I appreciate sometimes harsh criticism can lead to good outcomes...

Looks good.

the small point i would make are:

1. The scrolling images need a third image just seem too short
2. The boxes on the get a quote page do not seem to fit with the site
3. remove the add from the get a quote page

Hi Gareth,
Thanks for your feedback - is there any particular reason why I should not have an advert on that page?

Is it wrong or unacceptable in the eyes of the search engines?

Just asking?
:argh:

It's not that its wrong or unacceptable just that iI don't think a business site should have Ad's on them. Could end up advertising your competitor but it is up to you

Only had time for a quick look at the moment (so just home page). In general seems fine, but :)

For me (and could be a personal thing)
The least 'stand out' thing on the page is your call-to-action.

The "short pick up and deliveries" REALLY stands out, and the slides draw the eye.
By comparison the text under the "Short ..." and the call to action don't stand out enough - this is the single most important bit you want people to see.

I'm also a big believer in having your phone number (pref: a landline, but go with what you have) in the top right and highly visible.
For your type of service I want a 'quick idea' of the cost before I fill out a long form - and will much more often go with someone I've 'spoken to' first time. If I have to wait for a reply to a form fill I'm more likely to go for other quotes.

** edit **
Just saw that there is your number on there just above the 'get a quote' button. I rest my case about how that text isn't seen :)

It's good. That happy person image of yours is an attention-getter.

- Thanks for your input - I agree that the phone number should be more visible, I will fix that today.

- I am a big believer in having a catchy image / logo that the viewer can relate to - just make sure you use a vector image so that it is scalable and doesn't distort when you re size the image to fit different applications. I got this vector image from a stock photos site and there are plenty more where that came from. You can buy a page of images in different postures for around 4 credits which is around $US5.

Thanks and keep up the reviews - they all help...:thumbsup2
