***PLEASE READ CAREFULLY*** Without this step, your signs/posts cannot be installed.
Effective IMMEDIATELY, we will be ordering a utility locate for EVERY install Real Estate Delivery Service completes. It has come to our attention that local utilities will be monitoring compliance for all sign companies in the area.
How will this affect your ordering and your installation?
1. You as the ordering agent, (or your seller), will need to conspicuously mark the proposed location of the post installation(s), in all areas a post needs to be placed. Ex... Outside the gated area AND in front of the house. The locate law indicates the spot should be marked with white spray paint. This is an important step we will be asking our agents to complete. If the spot is not indicated by white paint, the locate may not be completed by the utility company and cause further delay. Further, indicating the proposed spot to be excavated will minimize the amount of markings made on the property.
2. Once the location on the property is marked, you can make your order as usual. Real Estate Delivery Service will order the locate for the listing. Please keep in mind, we will order the locates at the end of business each day as to expedite the process as best we can. Thus, it is important orders are in by our cutoff time of 5pm to ensure the installation is made on time.
3. The locate companies indicate 2 business days needed to complete the utility location process. This does not include the day of ordering. So, plan on at least 3 business days to complete the process.
4. Keep in mind, the marking of the property is done with white spray paint. There is a uniform utility code that indicates the type of utility present by color. Thus, your seller is going to have marking on their property. As we implement this process, we will do as much as we can to minimize the impact on the property in terms of the markings. However, you should begin to see these markings everywhere as the state adheres to these compliance services.
Below are a few website links that will shed more light on this. Please understand, this is compliance issue for our company and state law. We will be complying with all applicable mandates and laws going forward.
Of course, please call with any questions or concerns.
