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.

    • Hi Michelle and welcome   The reasons for investing in a pylon sign are too easy, and it's all about visibility for your tenants and investing in your tenants so their noticed.  Especially for centers that are not so easily seen from the public right of way.  That can be for a ground or pole sign.    I think a even better article that could help in educating property managers is having some knowledge in...is whether or not they should be investing and paying a large upfront cost in "retrofitting" their existing signage when marketed too by a lot of these so called "independent firms or consultants....who aren't actually interdependent at all, their actually salesmen or reps of light source manufactures.   They will walk into your office as if they are the "wizards of smart" and can come in with a impressive power point presentation.  They may even have a lot of articles from our sad trade magazines, whom aren't actually trade magazines at all, their actually just brochure magazines who are more set on selling one page ads than actually representing the truth for the electric sign industry.   Property managers and developers are fed a lot of marketing claims such as "savings"...."efficient"....."Return on investment".     I'm talking about Retrofitting from conventional light sources such as Fluorescent or Neon Lamps to LED   There is a lot of mis-information by these reps and sign companies who are looking to make profit on parts and labor of LEDs for something that makes no sense in most cases.  There is very little difference in power consumption between the three when it comes to equal light output, and very little difference in cost of operation.  IN fact in most cases, the ROI on retrofitting is and can be 20 to 40 years, and in that time consumers will be re-retrofitting many times over and that savings never comes.   So consumers who have no background or experience in light sources, or their cost of operation are being mislead into thinking Fluorescent and Neon Lamps are inefficient, dangerous and have poor light output, when actually the opposite is true.   But, you won't find any of this out from a light source rep who was a lift-gate salesman one day and a LED rep the next who has never even held, tested or evaluated a  Neon or Fluorescent lamp.       We have done a lot of testing here on the Sign Syndicate in lumen maintenance, cost of operation, and I probably would only trust about 10% of LED products out there on life, and that doesn't even scratch the surface of apples to apples light output.  When you hear or are being told statements such as "80% in savings and efficiency".....nothing is further from the truth because a rep is comparing a penlight to a mag-light and telling you the penlight is saving 80% in efficiency.     The truth is.....you can only claim one product is more efficient than the other when both have equal light output  BUT..... one is doing it at a lower cost of operation.  ONLY then can you claim one is actually more "energy efficient"   Sadly, there are a lot of sign producers who are lazy and or have very little knowledge of fabrication in integrating Fluorescent & Neon Lamps for illuminating signs OR, they prefer to have a lower cost/wage in employees that don't have the skill set in a wide variety of applications so they only produce with a "LED everything" attitude.  Which is great for them in a business sense....     ....but terrible for the consumer who can be left with a end-product that has cheap imported Chinese LEDs or product that has the environment that is too harsh for LEDs   There is something that consumers are NOT aware of.  Every light source has their strengths and weaknesses, and not one light source is a fit for all applications

    • I remember a couple sign shops in town would loan/trade each other the font cards for the Gerber 4b.  I still say all the time that you can tell a graphic artist that drew or painted signs vs one that had only done stuff on the computer.
