National Sign & Service Review Forum Updating

I have to post this everyone once in a while, so I'm repeating again.




For all those those who have access the National Sign & Service Company Review Forum, your participation, NOT your Distance Watching is much needed.


Too many are just watching, scanning without engaging.  The Review list is ONLY as good as it can be with more engagement.


Good reviews of companies are just as good as the, not so good.


I can't tell you how many times over the years it's helped get a lot of companies get paid, or saved companies from getting shafted


From time to time I get calls or threatening emails to "Remove" content mentioned about said companies.  Who does that?


Well.....I refuse to do so, and will continue to refuse unless it's something you want removed from your own statement.


If you're new to The Sign Syndicate, you should know that the review forum has been a good forecaster for troubled companies that may be not their way out of this industry...and when that has been the case it's drowned some subcontractors as well as suppliers down along with them.  It's a sad thing, and at the same time it's saved others.


These days for the non-payers they have many tools they like to use, future work carrot dangling, Non-Disclosure agreements, and lately....releasing your rights to a lien process( which in most cases is not legal).  Generally trying to get Subs to give up their tools and remedies to get paid



In my state of California, subcontractors MUST be paid within 30 Days of invoice, or the Primary Contractor can be fined, or lose their contractors license.  


So We shouldn't have this problem here in my state, but surprisingly.....we do.


Mainly because Subcontractors here accept work outside the state.  In most of these cases that contract is illegal because the primary party has NO contractors license in this state.  ONLY licensed contractors can Subcontract for projects or maintenance in the state of California.  I'm sure most other states who have contractors licenses work pretty much the same way, it safeguards the Primary, the Subcontractor, an most importantly...the consumer.


But...we also need the GOOD positive reviews of the Good Guys, so we all know who they are too.


This site will only be as great as those who help make it great.


If a company is not listed here that you think should be listed, please reply back or contact me by message.





Lastly, I'm fully aware that relationships between Contractors and Subcontractors is a two-way street.  There are some crappy subcontractors who can perform just as crappy, and have no business, being in business.   We have a Review forum is for that as well, HERE


Reviews can also be left on the companies marker in the Installer Map




All The Best To All

So I went thru the nationals list and updated comments if anything was out of date or had changed. All of us who contract services should do this. 


How do the companies listed get on the list? We do work for a good number of shops that send work all over and are not listed.

If you want to include them in the Nationals list, I'll give them a 5 star review.

Are they still in business?  Google says they are "Permanently Closed" odd


But, anyhow they are now listed here

Usually members contact me by email or message and we put them up.  As long as their Nationals for this forum that hire subs and they are not listed here send me a list in a message or reply here and I'll get them up.


Thanks for updating Steve!

    • yes, very weird, that she would decide to steal money, doesn't look like her. She still hasn't respond to any of our emails, phone calls, text messages, she still hiding.  (after we purchased 2 new trucks from her previously and was always very good with emails and calls.)   I had to Open a ticket with the Best Business Bureau BBB, and they reached out to her, and she finally responded and she sent them a highlighted contract we signed and she had a clause that if we canceled the purchasing of the truck we would forfeiture our deposit, but what sucks is that we canceled because Elliott couldn't deliver and was already more than 6 months behind schedule and still couldn't commit to a delivery, and instead they kept raising our price so cover material increases.    When Elliot came up with this, we  sent her an email and she agreed to canceling the contract and returning our deposit, we have an email where she promised to send the check back to us,  she was upset with Elliott and understood the situation, I had to fly someone to Elliott Warehouse and pick up the chassis, we had to drive 30 hours to drop off that chassis to ALTEC, and then flew the driver back to NJ, and all of that was at our expense, the truck with Altec Cost us $220,000.00 and we agreed to that because they promised to deliver when we needed, so we bite the bullet.    I don't understand why would she steal our deposit!! we had purchased trucks from her before, we always paid, we need more trucks in the future.  She didn't incur any expense, all she did, was to place an order from Elliott that never happened, and according to Elliott they didn't get any deposit payment, and they didn't bill her for anything, since they didn't get to do anything regarding this order.      signed CAD Signs contract highlighted.pdf Email.pdf
