The word I don't like and it's been de rigueur for some time is 'solutions' in a company's title- bit like 'direct' of years ago. For solutions I think of liquids rather than solving things, being the 'Scenic in the Mist', (copyright).
We have a 'Solid fuel solutions' in the S. Lakes area which is a contradiction in terms. There's been plenty of others including one something like 'financial planning solutions' of a few years ago; I had to chuckle when I saw a notice in our local rag that the business had been dissolved. They couldn't solve themselves or was it water under the bridge!

There a lots of companies who are similarly clever with marketing but not on vans:

I've seen a florist called "Florist Gump" which I think is quite clever.

In Bristol there is a burger van called "A Snack in the Gob".

Snack in a Gob, like it. We have 'Slates and Ladders' roofers here. Loads of others will come to mind, but there's catch-up to do on the Forum.

We were let down over catering for an event.
Our chairman got in touch with a guy with a burger trailer operator. He was brilliant.
'Only Foods and Sauces'

One of our members ordered Bacon with a Veggie Burger, apparently it is very good, and now a menu item.

Reported as seen in a Midlands Asian city;

On the tailboard of a Transit style flatbed truck with concrete mixer and other builders tools.

I remember back in the 80's seeing a Learner Vehicle with a sign on the Roof saying "Wheel Spin School of Motoring"! I thought of a couple more names on a similar theme that could be used ie. "Hand Brake Turn School of Motoring" & "Jump the Red Light School of Motoring" :whistle:

There's a mobile kebab vendor in Swindon called "Jason Doner Van".

The ready mix building materials supplier in Hastings is called "William the Concreter"

There is a furniture store in the States called 'The shack of sit'. Made me chuckle.
