Hyundai Signs For Sale

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals!

I have a very unusual question.  One I haven't been faced with in all of my years in business.  I have a customer that just purchased signs for his Hyundai dealership a couple of years ago - between that time and now, he built a new dealership here in town.  Between the time he purchased his new signs and finished construction on his new dealership, they changed logos and what their signs look like.  He said had he known they were going to do that he would have never purchased these signs because he knew he was going to build.  Hyundai naturally didn't tell him either.  Since they changed everything, they wouldn't allow him to use his almost brand new signs for the new location.  So, with all of that said, he wants me to put his old signs (photos attached) on the internet to see if I get any bites to purchase them so he can try to recoup at least some of his money.  Do you guys know anybody that would be interested in purchasing these kinds of signs?   Photo 130553 is of an "arch" that goes over the door.  It is constructed out of ACM panels._20171128_130553.thumb.jpg.fe2bf4a75700f98f1b746eb94f938f66.jpg

In my experience when they come down they would need to be destroyed as they are no longer a logo/concept that the company supports, I think the whole antiques guys going around and buying the old signs has wised up the major corporations about people making money off of their brand... I would bet that if he were to look into his contract with Hyundai, there is some verbiage in there to support this.

I have taken down several Ford, Chevy, Chrysler, GoodYear signs and had to provide photos of them being destroyed to the company. I also completed a big casino sign renovation project that included removing a flex face cabinet and installing channel letters, when I took the cabinet down, I just cut the face out instead of removing all of the clips to access the mounting lags. I rolled up the old flex face and threw it in the dumpster, I was contacted by the casino a couple of weeks after completion of the project to advise me that if I didn't remove the post from Craigslist and destroy the face that they would pursue legal action against me, I called them up just as fast as I could to let them know it wasn't me and I had thrown it away just as they had asked, come to find out some guy went dumpster diving, pulled the face out and posted it on Craigslist for $500.00! Just my .02....I could be completely wrong but I would check with all parties before I moved forward with selling the signs.

Yeah, I asked him all of those questions because we have had to do the same thing with signs we have taken down in the past.  We took these down directly for the dealership, not a National account.  I told him I had never been approached to do this with a Corporate sign like this before, but he says he is within his legal rights to sell them.  I hope he has really checked.  If not, it is on him.  I don't think we are going to find anybody to buy them anyway, but you never know.  I really appreciate you responding to me, Travis!  Have a great week!

Let him sell them that way if there is an issue you are NOT the target of those big corporate lawyers.

I dont know if they still do it but in the case of GM pole signs they would also have to show photos of the anchor bolts cut off and a good portion of the base demo'd

yes that is still the case.  those signs are as good as scrap.  What dealership is going to buy the old branding when they wont be able to put it up.  No collector will buy it.
