Questions about ordering on our website

Do I have to place my order on the website?

Not at this time, but by using the web site to place your order form it will insure the accuracy of your order.

Why is the grid location important?

When the address is correctly entered with your order, the grid should automatically come up when the look up grid button is pressed. If the grid does not appear, double check the spelling of the street and town, if that does not help than check the St, Ave, RD, etc. designation. This is very common problem, but can be easily resolved by putting in the correct address designation

For new streets and subdivisions, a map of the new streets and the placement of the sign can be faxed to 203-723-9805.

Questions about our service policies

When will my sign go up?

Within three business days following the day you order it.

Back to Top

Is there any reason that my post-sign would not go up within those three days?

Almost all of the orders we receive are completed within two days. In fact, 75% of the work requests we receive are completed within that time frame! However, there are some things that can delay a request. Providing us with incorrect information. Severely inclement weather is another.

Back to Top

My homeowners only want the service done on a certain day. Can you do that?

We always try to comply with our customers request, but we cannot guarantee service on any particular day. The best suggestion is to give us the information, but inform your homeowners that we require three days to complete the service request.

Back to Top

The homeowner wants you to call before you come. Can you do that?

Our policy is to request all communication remain strictly between the agent and the homeowner. Please inform them that we will service the task during the three business days after you request it.

Back to Top

We've changed our mind and want to cancel the request. Can we stop the order?

We will do our best to contact the installer, but please have a contingency planned in case we cannot reach them. Even with modern conveniences such as pagers, cellular phones, and computers, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to stop them. Explain to the homeowner to keep watch for the installer. Our installers are always directed to follow the homeowners request, and if the homeowner chooses to cancel the request on site, our installers will be happy to comply. If we are able to contact the installer prior to arriving at the property, there will be no charge.

I have a "lot for sale", or a particular spot in the yard (because of a flower bed/underground sprinkler/invisible dog fence/etc.), where I and the property owner want the post-sign to go. I would like to meet you there to show you. How can I schedule that?

Due to the high volume of post-signs we install on any given day, it is not possible to meet our customers at the site at a particular time. The best way to insure we place the post where you would like it, is to place a marker. We suggest:

1. Stakes with ribbons.
2. Metal frames or directional arrows.
3. Red marker flags that we supply at no charge.
--Check in your office, they may have some already!

We require that you place a marker for properties that have underground sprinklers, invisible dog fences, etc. If we get to the property and no marker is present, we will not install the post. A service call charge will apply for us to go back when the marker has been placed. Also, if you fail to inform us that the property has an underground sprinkler, invisible dog fence, etc., we will not be responsible for any damages.

If we are told to look for a marker on a property without special circumstances, and there is no marker present, our installer will use their best judgment. We do this to avoid delay and to save you the cost of a service call. If you dislike the location, there will be a service call charge to move it.

Back to Top

Will you put my riders on the post-sign?

We will be happy to install your riders on the post-sign if that information is included on your order and we have your rider(s) in stock. There is a $3.00 additional charge for installing riders with your post sign.
 
Back to Top

What happens to my riders when you remove the post-sign?

Our drivers will return your riders to our facility in Naugatuck. Here they are kept in our inventory until requested to be returned to the office or added to another post sign. You can call anytime to request an inventory of your riders.

Back to Top

The homeowner said that the "sign" I asked you to remove is still at the property.
What happened?

Many times, agents forget to go back by the property and pick up the metal frames you were using to supplement the post-sign. The other possibility is that the homeowner pulled up the post-sign and placed it in the garage, shed, or other inaccessible place, and we were not able to retrieve it. There is a charge to go back to retrieve it.

Back to Top

I don't like where you installed the post-sign, and want it moved.
Is there a charge for that?

We will place the post anywhere you like on the property as long as it is safe and legal, and you inform us on the order where you would like it. If you choose, however, to allow us to use our best judgment, and then disagree with our selection, there is a service call charge to go back and move it.

Back to Top

The post/sign is not looking very good and I want you to reinstall it.
Is there a charge for that?

We guarantee our workmanship and materials for 60 days from the date the post-sign was installed, and we will service the post free of charge within that time period.

If the post has been up for longer than 60 days, there is a service call charge to reinstall it.

Back to Top

The post/sign was stolen or damaged and I want you to reinstall it.
Is there a charge for that?

Yes, any service requests due to vandalism, car damage or other causes are chargeable.
