  1. The phone is ringing and customers are asking about sign removals Some are never going to open back up because of this shutdown. Some are giving up and know that they will not make it successful And some just had enough, early retirements. The question will be for many , Is how much money, time and effort do I want to put back into starting over ? Then there is the Employee problem.
  2. U P S means................ Under Pylon Sign Same Day, Next Day Any Day Service That's real drive thru service.
  3. Our Accubend went down. The 1st time since it was new. Due to the Current Corona Virus Restrictions and Scare. Our scheduled Service was cancelled Accubend Service called us up and scheduled a Video Conference to repair our machine We scheduled the time and with the Accubend Service Tech and our tech, we were ready 2 Hrs of trouble shooting and the repair was made. No Parts needed, No travel time and NO CHARGE ! Accubend has again proven that they are the best. They have proven that they stand behind their machines and do " What Ever Is Needed " to get the job done ! Thanks for keeping the only " RED ACCUBEND MACHINE " up and running !
  4. D O N O T W O R K F O R .......... KFM 24 7 LTD Keystone Facility Maintenance 15949 Fredrick Rd Woodbine MD 21797 301 854-6776 KFM247.COM FEB 29TH SATURDAY AT 415 PM KFM Calls me to do a Emergency Call for a Banner falling off of a Victorias Secret. Its an Emergency and they need it right away. ( I pass this Banner everyday , 2 times a day for the past 3 weeks. It has been falling since then ) I tell them a price and I will be there in 1 hr. I want a Credit Card number for the amount. We all Agree and they will send me a PO immediately for the agreed amount . I go to the site and remove the banner. Simple job, In and out in 15 minutes. Total time from call to back in the garage is 55 minutes. Nice and easy I come in Monday and there is a PO for $ 175. for the work. WTF ? The Credit Card doesn't go thru either. I call them immediately and no answer. I call them for the next 4 days, 4 -5 times a day. Nothing. Now its my turn. I call the Victoria Secret store and I talk to the store manager. They will handle it and get back to me. 20 Minutes later KFM calls me and wants to " Take care of the Misunderstanding " They said that " You were on site for 15 minutes and that the price was way over their allowed limit. I informed them that I did not care about their limits or anything they have to say. That I already had placed a Lien and Victoria Corp was involved. SO they paid me immediately. Remember......" they said it was a misunderstanding " Today, 10 days later KFM called me to say..........I"m the Manager here at KFM and that there was a misunderstanding and I want to pay up and clear the Lien. These " Scumbags" dont know that they already paid me 4 days before. THEY ARE 100% LOSERS This Re Enforces my Hatred of " Facility Maintenance Companies " who work out of a desk or tent. Always get the End User information and make a good relationship with the store manager when working. It pays off to be in control.
  5. Who's bringing in the LED Lights ??
  6. TERMS This is a removal and has NO Value to anyone Once the Signs are down, No one cares if you get paid and there is No One to go after . Removals......Paid in full prior to work or start of work Especially if you are working for someone else who is waiting to get paid
  7. Mercer County NJ Traffic Dept. Working On O.T. attempting to lift a traffic light off the ground. Boomed directly up and into the Power Lines........Jib made contact and ZAP ! Operator survived without injury. Truck is a total loss
  8. All I can say is WOW ! I guess they will not be celebrating 4th of July, or any other American Holidays anymore
  9. There use to be specific vendors. There still are choice Nationals building the signs. There are also numerous " Approved Sign Companies " building and installing DUNKIN" signs When it comes to anything outside the standard sizes and designs, the " Approved Sign Company " will do the entire job
  10. Still available in New York Along with the Illegal Drugs, Guns and anything else you need But DO NOT block the Bicycle lane, that is the priority here
  11. I went to a job site and found this guy at the front door. Everyone needs to be greeted by this guy. He is the shinning star and ready to help anyone at anytime. He sets the example for all employees to follow. Do you think this guy would wear a Company Shirt that advertises the guy who pays him every week ?
  12. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Have fun in the sun... I cant remember that far back to 46, I need pictures to remember 46
  13. Here is the 1995 International 4900 DT 466 Motor, Allision Automatic, Loaded Options, All Brand New Tires and 7,003 ORIGINAL MILES when delivered to me. Original Factory Paint job. NO EMISSIONS Shit. And it came with factory installed automatic snow chains on the rear wheels. Bought right out of the Fire House, Never outside in the weather Sent to STAMM MFG in Florida to build with a NEW MANITEX SC 62 Ft The Truck Cab is not new paint, it is the original factory paint job buffed out shinny
  14. Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers. Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer Plus a lot of other nonsense When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? Here is the answer sent to me Hello, I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out. Thank you!

  15. Frustrated 1st thing in the morning leaves the entire day to really get pissed off. When people ask me " How many employees do you have working for you " ? I answer " About half " That is the reality of being a business owner If this was easy, everyone would do it.
  16. TOP of the List Sign Company to work with. Never any issues at all.
  17. I found this brand new 16 ft high ladder while on vacation It is a 1 piece Aluminum ladder with 1 adjusting support pole. It was pretty solid and sturdy about 6 ft off the ground. I did not want to climb all the way up and fall off breaking any of my body parts while out of the USA It is made in China and is OSHA Approved Type 1A rating Selling for around $ 450 USA Anyone ready and willing to try this one ?
  18. This is what we found when we opened the sign up. Can't fix stupid !
  19. Obtaining your Crane Operators Certification is not as difficult as some of you think it is. There are several organizations that do this. Look for them It is cheaper then de rating your crane The biggest issue are, You are paying for it. Continuing Education for those you that employ others and for yourself. Employees who are now Certified and want more money, or think they can call their own shots You now have Certified Employees who hopefully will operate your equipment safer And You are ahead of the guys without any License. Its just another bump in the road that we deal with
  20. It is very simple. Pay your Invoices when the job is completed and agreed on. Without the Sub Contractor Sign Companies, The Nationals FAIL. There are many Nationals who pay well and pay on time. GREAT JOB ERIK,
  21. ALL SIZES and depth of unit ?............... Delivery time ?................. Thanks
  22. Yes this is very sad to everyone. The " Good Guy " just trying to do the right thing. The other issue is .........These Message Center Sign Companies who sell to the General Public. ( The Florida Specials ) They advertise and sell directly to the Schools, Churches and Public. They sell the sign and send them the 15 Minute Video on how to install it. " You can do it " advice.
  23. We have this coverage from our Insurance Companies for many years. The part of the policy is " Hired Vehicles and all non owned vehicles " Which can be issued under the Automobile Insurance Policy or the General Liability Policy " I have had it listed under both policies at times. Who ever gave the best pricing on it. The cost is not that much extra. It includes the vehicles that your employees drive to the work site. Occasionally, not expected to or normally as part of their job. You need to ask for it and get the correct information concerning what is covered and what is expected to be insured that you are responsible for We do not insure every vehicle that is on the job site or the Hot Dog truck that comes to the job site. No one does or is expected to do it. You need to get an Insurance Broker who specializes in Construction and also the Sign Business. One who knows what we do and what is needed
  24. Most reasons Insurance Companies drop you are for claims or they are getting out of that type of business In your case, they may have taken your money all these years and won the prize of no claims. It is all about making money. They most likely dont want to take the chance of you making a claim and losing what they made in profit. In general, Insurance Companies will Insure you as a Vinyl shop, Manufacturer which will cover most everything you do. If you do not install, or install under 6 ft height. Limited installations, they will want you as you are low risk. Install over 6 ft heights, or unlimited heights and you are an accident waiting to happen.
