    I can't believe no one has suggested "Top Flight" security...

    S.T.
    That one caught me off guard and I almost fell off my desk chair.

    I agree. A few years ago, I was researching names for a company and was looking in the yellow pages from other states. I saw some very "interesting" names for security companies, like Force 5 Security ; Code Blue 2000 ; Delta Force International ; Command Force Professionals.
    As a client, I would never even call those outfits for bids. You can just imagine these Bozos with their decked-out Crown Vics, "special" weapons and black BDU style uniforms, ready to kick azz when all you want is someone to check your doors a couple of times a night.

    KNIGHTPATROL!

    I used to own the web domain knightpatrol.com. Then I was offered an insane amount of money for it. So I sold it, and it's now a gay [email protected] site!

    I own midwestpatrol.com and midwestpatrol.net. (And they might be for sale for the right price. )

    or any combination thereof. Has a bold, aggressive sound to it. Makes the contractor feel he is getting a proactive company.

    The most catchy name I know of is actually one I saw in a movie. Anyone remember "National Security?" That's what I would call my company.

    Personally I like SecTrainer's idea, and this is how I've always done things. By using a "generic" name, you can branch out into anything. Also, something else you can do is get a holding corp, maybe in Nevada or Delaware or your home state, and the use LLCs or DBAs to create child corporations for each division.

    For example...

    Cityscape Solutions is the company name.
    Our "IT" brand has always been "Information Technology Group."
    Our TS brand has always been "Protective Services Group."

    If I ever get enough money to branch into a full blown guard and patrol service, we could easily...

    1. Use a company name that is specific, such as "Tiburon Protective(TM)," and put "A Cityscape Solutions Company" under it in tiny letters.

    2. Simply use "Cityscape Solutions" as the company name, and put "Protective Services Group" under it.

    Either way, this illustrates getting some brand management while limiting the liability for the master holding corporation in case your child company blows up or is so successful it needs divested.

    I have always been partial to Tiburon Protective, btw.

    Doesn't sub-contracting out on jobs run the risk of 'someone else' hurting your company image through their unprofessional/poor conduct?

    OT - Choose an acronym for your company name, that'll make it more likely to be unique ie. Melbourne Protective Services

    Any further consultation will cost you... but I'll undercut Mr. Security and do if for 25c LOL
