Sorry missed this one.

I built my base by knocking on the doors of large fleets, my best ever customer took me 17 calls before I got my first job off of them. They then spent about $2,000 a month with me for the next 17 years, I then trained them up and sold them two Delta kits

Screenman pretty much said it all with "knocking on doors". Talk to everyone who will listen. Don't assume anyone is not a customer until he proves he isn't. Once you get in that door you need to show what you can do for them. You need to set yourself apart from your competition. I got most of my accounts with a free demo. I was lucky, no one in this area could do a decent repair. I can't tell you how many times I heard "didn't know they were supposed to look like that" . When they said that I knew I had a new customer.

Ghost Rider that motivated me to go after fleets being most are already service by others in this area. Being I do lots of non fleet work and here that same thing every day. This is why I love this forum sometimes I gain knowledge and other times something that simple that motivates me.Thanks

My plan isnt much different from what I did when I first got into glazing, and that's to focus a large portion of my efforts on digital traffic.
