Questions & Answers

This section has been included to hopefully answer a number of questions for you that we are often asked here at Giant. Whilst we aim to offer a comprehensive summary there are always questions to be asked. If you can’t find your answer then contact us directly and we will find the answer for you!

1. How many people will see my mobile billboard and how do I know it’s operating when it should be?

Some of our vehicles are fitted with GPS tracking devices which allow us to provide you with detailed journey reports confirming where, when and how long your advert has been in any location. Opportunities to See (OTS) are impossible to be 100% accurate however our research is based upon the most recent findings from the DFT (Department For Transport) for Average Daily Traffic Flows across the UK. We calculate viewing figures based upon roads travelled by our vehicles and predict that daily Urban area viewing figures can reach up to 100,000 people and this is without even considering pedestrian views!

2. Whats the difference between an advertising trailer and an advertising van?

An Advertising Trailer is an independent billboard unit which can sited in location and made secure or pulled by an appropriate vehicle. An Advertising Van has the billboard unit inbuilt and typically is illuminated from the rear.

3. How does mobile billboard advertising cost compare to other forms of advertising?

Our rate card confirms our standard costs. Traditional methods such as Radio and Newspaper advertising are based upon 1 advert being placed for a fixed fee and then hoping that this is either heard or seen. Our research carried out with findings from the Department of Transport confirms that daily Opportunities to See (OTS) for our Moble Advertising in an Urban area would average over 40,000 views per day. The resultant Cost per Thousand Impressions (CPM) would be as low as £2.00.

4. What are the benefits of using mobile outdoor advertising?

One of the most commonly asked questions! Mobile Outdoor Advertising can be directed exactly where you want it to be seen. Whether by city or district, sporting or music event, daytime or night time. The low cost for mobile campaigns, which are guaranteed to be noticed, are more cost effective when compared to other more traditional methods such as newspaper and radio advertising.

6. Can we provide our own banners when booking mobile services?
