  2. We did work for them in January and have not been paid or contacted. Tom Merkle posted on the South Water Signs forum on this site and said he's never not paid for work, but you can't prove that by me! I contacted the customer's corporate office and got a response that they will push the issue with him.

  5. I appreciate the input Rocco. I told the company we would not be sending them that information and they said they would take us off the vendor list. It's ok, we are plenty busy anyway.
  6. That's how I feel! Thanks for your input, Paul!
  7. How do you all feel about a national company asking for drug testing and background checks for your employees? Complete with A background portion (criminal, sex offender, terrorist watch list), driving record and credit report. This check is looking for felonies, violent and trust based crimes Drug testing- standard 5-panel Fingerprinting to follow at a later date with a badge issued We always do a driver license check, all our drivers are on the random drug testing program but I feel really uncomfortable with giving personal information to another company. Am I over reacting?
  8. Plus it's in the Pacific NW - you've never lived anywhere with prettier scenery!

  14. We opened with a few of our crew to manufacture sneeze guards for bank teller windows and car dealership sales desks. The only time the phone rings is when a National sign company wants a job done "right away". I think we may be able to go out for service on/around the 18th.
  15. Sign shops in Washington state aren't considered essential... home improvement stores, pot shops and "vegetation management crews" are essential. Good to know where we stand....
  16. Nice, Matt! My daughter actually thought that since China has a large elderly population and this virus seems to have targeted the elderly... and it started in China... how grim is that thought! and here's a link to an interesting article about China's aging population: https://chinapower.csis.org/aging-problem/
  17. In Washington State the employment security dept has a thing called Shared work - if the employer will continue to pay benefits (we pay medical/dental) and sign up for the Shared work project, the employees can file for unemployment without having to look for work, they just report what hours they did work and EmpSec will pay the balance to make up 40 hours. They pay about 75% of the employees pay but it's better than nothing. We've had several larger jobs put on hold and our phones and email has slowed considerably. The feeling in our shop is that the gov will shut everyone down next week. We are a small shop and have no issues with "social distancing" (see our facebook page) here at work. So far no one here has it, but since it's a sneaky virus you just don't know if you have it until you actually get ill. And yes, I do believe it is an engineered virus, fortunately not Stephen King's SuperFlu level but dangerous none the less. Stay well and be safe!
  18. A conditional release should have some kind of wording like Upon receipt of payment in full, and upon said payment clearing the bank upon which it is drawn, the undersigned hereby agrees to waive and release any right to a mechanics lien, stop notice, or any right against a labor and material bond on the job. This covers you against their check bouncing - release is only effective after the check clears the bank.
  19. Never give a lien waiver - you can do a conditional waiver that says you won't lien a job as long as you get paid, then an unconditional waiver when you are paid. Tell companies who insist on unconditional waivers before payment that it's extortion and completely unethical.
  20. We have a Skyhoist SX60 mounted on a 2001 Freightliner - works like a champ. The problem is getting CDL drivers - they are almost as hard to find as sign electricians. And the crane license. 2015 Elliot L60 mounted on an International - the truck has had some issues but under warranty for the most part. Again, needs a CDL driver and a crane license. 30' Fiberglass bucket truck (Ford F450). Works for some of the shorter/smaller stuff we do. Our biggest issue isn't with any of our trucks, but paying for the licensing requirements for the drivers/operators is killin' us.
  21. Crane Repair Service 1002 Valley Ave NW Puyallup WA 98371 253 848 9473 They fixed our SX60, and yes, the brass bearings were really worn. I know it's a way to go for you but you might give 'em a call.
