On takedowns, I am already thinking of the boxes for storage to purchase, 3 inch Tapeguns and tape, yellow plastic tags for the c-9 lights and wreaths. we get most of our stuff from ULINE. we need to build about 40 spools for the additional c-9 jobs we did this year, along with some shelving and reorganizing of our current storage system. I will begin filming jobs tomorrow under a new video system. In the past, I used a mini-dvd camera to film each job and it put it on a single mini-dvd. the install crew would then play that dvd for instructions on how to put up the job. This year I will be filming using a hard drive video camera, film all of the new jobs and the jobs that have add-ons, and probably another 20-40 old jobs, just to start replacing the individual mini-dvd's we currently use with a single 5 inch dvd that will hold aprox 50-60 jobs. eventually we will have all of our jobs on a set of 3-4 DVDs that we can burn anytime from the computer. We had about a dozen mini-dvd's get scratched this year and were unplayable. This way if the 2008 dvd gets scratched we can burn a new one. I also went ahead and purchased a used 16 foot boxvan to add to the fleet, I figure we can really use it during takedowns. 16 foot is probably a little big for install, but the 14 footer we have has a big limitation. To carry a 32 foot extension ladder you have to leave the access door open between the cab and the box. I know I need a ladder rack system for the boxvans for a 40 foot ladder, but I have not figured it out yet.
