Top 5 Questions to Ask Before Buying an LED Sign
1. Where are the LED Signs made?
This is a very important question because most people will buy a digital sign not knowing where it was built. It comes as a surprise to most people when they receive their signs and it turns out it’s not what they expected. It’s very important to have LED signs made in the United States with quality craftsmanship that you can trust. Even when you are tempted with a low priced LED sign and think you’ve found a great deal, always check the fine print because you are likely looking at a sign that was made in China. TV Liquidator builds their signs in the United States and provides business owners with reliable, well-built signs that are made to last. TV Liquidator’s American made signs use LED’s boasting over 100,000 hours of life and are made to withstand the most severe weather conditions.
2. Do the Signs Come With a Full Warranty or a Limited Warranty?
Another great question you would need to know that may be hiding in the fine print. When searching for that perfect sign, make sure you find a company with a full warranty and not a limited warranty. Some companies will offer a three year warranty, but when reading the fine print, you may find that they offer a full one year warranty with a remaining two year limited warranty. With a misleading warranty, how can you be sure that the quality of their signs is not misleading as well? TV Liquidator offers a full three year warranty that covers all parts and factory labor. TV Liquidator is a company that backs their products with a strong warranty so you know they offer reliable LED signs made to last.
3. Are the Signs Completely Weatherproof?
Most business owners want the option to display their signs outdoors to attract new customers. It is very important to use a sign that is fully functional in any weather condition so you don’t miss out on potential customers. Other companies, in the U.S. and abroad, will only semi-weatherproof their signs. They will normally brush a thin coat of silicone on the sign, let it dry and call it weatherproof. This type of weatherproofing is only temporary and will eventually wear away exposing the sign’s components to moisture. However, TV Liquidator signs are 100% weatherproof. They do not brush silicone on their signs, they instead do a quarter inch pour on the signs with silicone IP65 to guarantee its functionality and longevity in severe weather. Their signs are also framed with extruded aluminum that will not rust. When shopping around for a sign, always ask how their signs are weatherproofed and what they are using to guarantee it will function in the outdoor elements.
4. Do the LED Sign’s Have Any Certifications?
Certifications are extremely important for an LED sign to have, especially when it comes to city requirements. Many installers will not work on a digital sign unless it has the appropriate electrical certifications. Most companies, especially those overseas will not have any certification on their signs. You want to make sure your LED sign is certified so that it doesn’t cause electrical problems, or sign failure. Check all labels and certifications before buying an LED sign especially if it will be used indoors. One major certification is UL, which you would see on quality electronics. TV Liquidator goes above and beyond with their LED sign certifications. Not only are they UL Compliant, but they are also MET Labs certified and CSA Approved. All of these certifications will set your mind at ease knowing your sign is approved for any commercial installation anywhere in the United States or Canada.
5. Does the Company Offer Customer Service?
Great customer service can be one of the most important things a company can offer in any industry. When buying a product, you want to be able to ask someone how to set it up, how to use the product and how to service it. But what if there was no one there to answer your questions? This is a real and frustrating situation for many people who buy LED signs. You will want a company that answers the phone and is ready with any answers to questions. TV Liquidator offers customer service, free programming assistance and free technical support. You will want to make sure your LED sign company accommodates your needs and helps you in every way so that you can get the full benefits and full usage of your LED sign.
