Our Commitment

We work with the sponsor from the beginning, from choosing the section of roadway you will sponsor to designing your sign. We meet all of our sponsors face to face so we can get a better understanding of your needs. Our committment is true and we stand by our actions to please all of our sponsors.

We are out on the roadways each and every day inspecting, cleaning, & looking for available sections for our sponsors. Being a local company, we know Long Island and Westchester roadways and traffic volumes. If there is a problem with your sign, we will identify and fix that problem quickly.
