UPS 18 Wheel Truck vs Pylon Sign in Wylie Texas

Recommended Posts

My friend sent this photo to me last night. Looks like the driver tried to drive in between poles of this pylon sign in Wylie Texas. I wonder if the other pole is still standing. 

Just curious of opinions of what would be the proper steps for a professional sign company to take to restore this pylon sign?

 U P S means................  Under Pylon Sign       Same Day, Next Day  Any Day Service

That's real drive thru service.

Determine if the base shifted and /or the columns bent.   In our case a car veered off the road, hit the embankment at the entrance drive, and went airborne at an undetermined speed...and you can see how far the sign flew from the impact.

Also truck impact. Took the insurance companies 2 years to sort out who would pay. The I beam was direct buried in concrete and bent I beam and pulled concrete up 6"

Fiberglass pin was shattered.

Repaired pin with 2 side cabinets going up next week, foundation pored today.

Proper steps for any capable sign company is #1 thorough on site survey to assess conditions.  Insurance company is going to be involved and they are going to price shop it much as they can get sign companies to quote it.  They are probably going to jack it up some more just getting that rig out!  Top section might be salvageable, tenant section, might be able to save some faces but that depends on how they get the trailer out.  I'm thinking there is a UPS driver filing for unemployment benefits...

    • Hi guys. I just joined about a month ago and haven't introduced myself yet. I'm a sign PM of 13 years, currently with Franchise Signs International. As the name suggests we mostly serve chain companies, namely restaurants (so for us things are especially slow right now but we do have a couple of accounts that are still rockin n rollin.) Our terms are net 30 and we usually have no issue doing half deposits or credit card payments before shipping at first until we establish credit with you. On large installs that require upfront equipment rental we are flexible about deposits. I previously worked for Allen Industries and all I'll say for now is, FSI is much easier to work for because of that flexibility and they actually pay on time (with the exception of the occasional PM error failing to approve an invoice on time.) I've never had a company refuse to work with me at FSI whereas as Allen it was commonplace.    ANYWAY... getting to the point now....    I'm working with a large logistics company currently sending large quantity orders for various size coroplast signs, ACM panels, vinyl graphics, etc. We also get quite a few orders for interior acrylic and sintra letters.  We have a couple of suppliers we work with already but we're looking to network with more from various regions. Drop me a line if you're interested in networking with us! I'll provide my email address if allowed (is that allowed?)
    • Some reps will you anything until the shit hits the fan. How do I know this?
    • SKYSIGNMAN,   It is not a quality issue I am referencing. I have sold Watchfire displays in the past and they have failed and required repair too. In fact, one of my previous Watchfire customers disconnected their Watchfire display and replaced it with a Samsung. I didn't get the job to replace it so perhaps it was their way of saying  to me keep your Watchfire displays.   What I am referencing is the lack of vision on Vantage's part to support their dealer network. 
    • Watchfire is making their own LED's, modules, and drivers in the USA?  
    • I have been in the Sign Business for just over 35 years , Owner of Skylight Signs for 18 years. We ONLY sell American Made Watch-Fire signs. we will not even offer another product or even service other products.  We offer anyone with a "off-shore" unit a $3000.00 trade-in discount on any new Watch-Fire units.  We have sold over 150 units in the area & just sold out 1st 10' x 36'  highway billboard unit on the main interstate in downtown Rochester, NY
