Here's one idea. Maybe the gold seal could be replaced with a tire/wheel thing?

As you are selling to an insitutional instead of a retail market, I don't think a snappy name is really required. How about something professional sounding like:

GK Enterprises
GK Conversion
GK Automotive
GK Municipal Services
GK Mechanical

Of course, you should add the appropriate LLC, LLP, inc. etc.

Relentless Rescue Conversions
Amber Rescue Conversions
Code 3 Conversions
Code 4 Conversions

Kind of trendy, and sticks in your mind when you see it. I kind of like the Code 3 Conversions. Or even go for Code 4 Conversions.

Hey, good luck on your business venture. I just started my own business 4 months ago, and I am already kicking profits! GOTTA LOVE IT!

I do that, too! I used to be a lead electrician at Road Rescue and have been converting vehicles since 1980.

Here are some of my creations:

Fire Air Supply/Command Post/Rehab Unit
Grass Fire Unit
3300 Gallon Tanker. I built four identical units for the department.
EMS Special Event Vehicle

I think "Code 3" is taken. How about something with "Empire" and "Empire State" in the name?

might as well go with Aardvark, just so you are listed first in the phone book.

A name like Empire Emergency Response Vehicles would sum it up.

Countless company names have nothing to do with the type of business conducted.

Including my own. It makes very little difference unless you're retail and want people to know immediately what it is you do.

Having a name starting with A or something from the start of the alphabet is a good idea. A lot of things are listed in alphabetical order.

Not sure about using initials like GK, because then you get; "What Does GK stand for"

Don't use your own name as then you can't sell the business when its really rich.

Use a name that has some meaning to what you do.
