Did you know that all real estate sign post installs require that Miss Utility be contacted prior to its install? In a very recent email exchange Miss Utility was helpful to explain the following to us. A real estate sign that can be pushed into the ground by hand or foot would not need a call. But if any excavating or tools are being used then they must be contacted first, it is the law! Miss Utility then has all the utility lines marked for safety reasons.
Most understand that the standard wood post that has a hole dug needs a call. But even the newer, modern metal post using the metal stake require a call. Because a large hammer is needed to place the metal stake it falls into the category of needing a call. Do you know many installers are not calling and you and your brokerage are at risk.
At Sign Post Install Inc. we contact Miss Utility each and every time. We record the ticket number they supply for our records and reference later. We will always do the right job the right way, you can count on that!
