FAQ

How many people will look at trailer adverts?
At Billboards On The Move, we ensure your mobile billboard is parked off in areas of high density traffic and guaranteed to be seen. In research carried out by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) small cameras were used, which measured and captured how many people looked at a billboard message and for how long. An average of 105,000 people look at a mobile billboard message each weekday for about 3 seconds during am 2-hour period. The results were 15% higher on a weekend.
What are your turnaround and lead times?

How do you keep track of the trailers?

Clients are free to contact the field manager at any time to know the whereabouts of their trailer.

How does moving media compare to conventional billboards?
The primary difference between conventional billboards and moving media is mobility. Trailers and buses can move around, while conventional billboards don’t. Another important factor is visibility, as moving media is in your face, while conventional billboards are not. Space is a third factor, as buses and trailers can have wraparound or double sided adds while billboards concentrate on one direction.
