Navigating the world of temporary signs can be a bit of a puzzle, as different municipalities have their own unique rules and regulations. It's important to remember that some areas require permits for temporary signage, while others do not. These varying requirements might include restrictions on sign sizes, placement, and duration.

Before you put up that eye-catching sign to promote your event or business, it's a good idea to check in with your local municipality to ensure you're in compliance with their specific guidelines. Understanding the rules in your area will help you avoid potential hiccups and keep your message shining bright. We have a lot of info on the different regulations in the area so please dont hesitate to ask!

Permit Policy for
Portable Sign Rentals

1. Ask for Forgiveness- Our most popular choice for obtaining a temporary sign involves placing the sign without a permit and relying on the municipality's enforcement practices. By opting for this route, customers can often enjoy longer sign durations, less attention from their local municipality, and cost savings by avoiding permit fees. However, it's important to note that, under this option, we cannot offer refunds or credits if the sign needs to be removed early due to municipal intervention. While this approach provides flexibility and benefits for our customers, it also comes with the understanding that compliance may vary, and actions taken by the municipality are beyond our control.

2. Permit before Placement- With this option customers have the opportunity to apply for and secure a permit for their temporary sign. This process requires our customer handles all associated permit costs, ensures compliance with local regulations, and handles the application process directly. Once the permit has been acquired, our customer is responsible for communicating with us when they wish to have the sign placed for advertisement and when it should be picked up.

We prioritize close collaboration with various municipalities to ensure that your portable signs meet all necessary requirements. We offer a streamlined permit application service for our customers in specific West Michigan areas
