  3. Recommendation for Work in NY

    hi Angie, We are right in the city of Buffalo and we have been around for over 114 years - work with most malls in the area - fabrication, installation and service. can send you some references if you like. thanks for the opportunity.
  4. Rant

    Being you have never done work for this company before, it is definitely not out of line to request a deposit - we are even starting to do that with the national sign companies we do work with, if especially they pay in 60 to 90 days as we can not be have our monies tied up that long if it is a big job. like the other person said, if they can't pay the deposit they can't pay the balance,. you know on a job that size their customer had to give them a deposit.
  5. ground shaking

    my daugher said our whole house was shaking for a couple of minutes in the Tonawanda, N.Y. area, but we didn't feel anything in Buffalo
  6. Who is Accelerated Service?

    We received the same e-mail, don't know who they are- never heard of them. I do know after reading their service agreement we were kind of weary of signing it due to some of the wording in it- I asked questions, but they said they could not answer until the agreement was signed so we never responded - trying to do a little more research on them first.
  7. Anyone deal with atlas?

    We have done work for them for about 3 years now - they have paid in 45 to 60 days and always on time!Nice people to do work for - we have always charged them our regular service and installation rates, our reps have never even questioned our rates - they normally give us a do not exceed amount and if we are going over that then we call in for authorization.
  8. GEMINI LETTERS

    I agree and they also give you a lifetime warranty on their letters as well - we just replaced gemini plastic letters for a customer that had been on their building for 10 years - letter cost - $0 that is amazing to me
  9. A sore subject

    Why is he not allowed on Sign Syndicate any longer?
  10. Subcontract pricing standards

    We couldn't even pull our trucks out of the driveway for that - New York State sucks! what is your workmen's comp rate there? what is the cost of gasoline there? we have a formula we use to figure out what each man's cost is and then mark it up 50% and then we also calculate our gas and maintenance of our trucks into our rates as well on a yearly basis. if we didn't have a good customer base (repetitive) we wouldn't survive.
  11. Subcontract pricing standards

    sorry i should of clarified that this is our rate for 2 men - the only time we send one man out is for non-electrical work ( cleaning of signs, painting etc). Our rate for 1 man is 115.00 per hr. We have a great customer base (after 107 years in business )and we just raised our rates after 4 years due to wonderful New York State's workmens comp rate hike from 14.91 per hundred to 29.17 per hundred for our classification.
  12. Subcontract pricing standards

    we normally have a 30% markup on materials - 20% mark up on subcontract - our labor rate -135.00 per hr. 1 hr minimum on service with bucket plus travel time- 165.00 per hr for installations with bucket or crane - 2 hr minimum plus travel time - we have never charged anyone a service charge Thanks Michelle, To clarify, Is a 30% markup = to material cost x 130%? material cost x 30%

  14. Employee Vacation Time

    last year due to the economy we had to go to a 4 day work week and we were asked not to use time unless it was actually a vacation or personal day until things got better, which they have for now anyway
