Eric,
Is that insurance on your '03 and '04 full coverage commercial? I am paying about $1800 on a '77 Chev. 1 ton that only gets driven on nice days - stored in the winter, and an '89 Chev. 3/4 ton 4 whl.. This coverage basically covers NOTHING. It is a bare minimal, plain jane policy. If I can get a better deal, I am all for it. I am through Auto Owner's Insurance, currently. Any info is gratefully appreciated.

I usually run my ads till late May, theres always a few stragglers that you can pick up later into the season for one reason or another. It's not uncommon to pickup accounts in May that havent even had their 1st cut yet (note: extra $$$). I do stop by June though, it seems like June and July are the best times to pick up dead beats for some reason... I think thats around the time there current LCO stops there service for lack of payment and they need to find a new guy. I have picked up legitimate customers in June and July before, but typically its not worth the return on the advertising $ spent. I start back up again in August for the fall services.

I guess since we make signs i could answer this.
The easy answer is...it depends who owns the property its going on.
If you have the owners permision then you can, if not then no.

Hope this help.
