Relocating? Here's What to Do with Your Business Signage

Relocating your business is a big step, and with the right planning and professional assistance, your signage can make the move smoothly and continue to attract customers at your new location.

Moving your business to a new location is an exciting step! But what happens to your business signs? Can you take them with you? The answers vary depending on the type of sign and your situation. Here’s a guide to help you understand your options and ensure a smooth transition for your signage.

Tenant Signs:

Tenant signs are often easy to relocate. Some landlords allow you to take your tenant panel with you, but you might need to replace it. Always check with your landlord about their policies. When scouting your new location, ensure there’s a suitable spot for your tenant sign.

Vinyl Signs:

Vinyl signs are typically not reusable unless placed on a movable surface. Vinyl applied directly to doors or walls cannot be reused as it will tear upon removal. For your new location, contact us to create and install new vinyl signage.

Monument Signs

First, determine if you own your monument sign or if it belongs to the landlord. If it’s yours, you can relocate it, but consider its structural integrity and foundation. Contract us to evaluate and possibly restore or modify the sign during relocation is advisable.

Channel letters

Channel letters, known for their durability, can be relocated. If they’re mounted on a raceway, moving them is cost-effective. Direct-mounted letters can also be moved, but it’s more labor-intensive and costly. Before discarding them, contact us to explore your options!

Electronic Message Center (EMC):

For EMCs, it’s crucial to hire a professional sign company like Stein Sign Display to handle disassembly, packing, and reinstallation. Use appropriate packing materials to protect your equipment during transit. If electrical work is needed, you may also need licensed electricians to ensure a proper and safe installation at your new site.

Interior Signs:

Assess the condition of your interior signs before moving. Note any damages or necessary repairs. Document their dimensions, materials, and unique features. Ensure the new location can support their installation requirements.

Before removing any sign, consult with Stein Sign Display and we can assess whether the sign can be safely removed, transported, and reinstalled.

Also consider Temporary Signage, if immediate relocation isn’t possible or there’s a delay between moving out and opening at the new location, use temporary signage to direct customers to your new address.

Relocating your business is a big step, and with the right planning and professional assistance, your signage can make the move smoothly and continue to attract customers at your new location.
