Things to Consider when Purchasing a Sign Waving Machine

Without visible signs, drivers cannot see your store from the street

Every day I drive down major streets in Sacramento and notice small businesses tucked, almost invisibly, into shopping centers. I think to myself, even if these companies offer the most amazing products, services, or deals—who would ever see them? And even if their location is prime, how will anyone find them if they’re driving by at 40 mph and their store’s sign is indiscernible from the street?

If you own a small business or a franchise, you feel responsible when your store makes or loses money, so why wouldn’t you want to do everything in your power to ensure increased profits?

A visible, durable, reliable sign can make the difference between an empty store and an overcrowded one. I had become numb to all of the advertising I’m bombarded with during my drive around town…radio commercials, banners, A-frames, and even human sign spinners. That was, until sign waving machines caught my attention.

Durability and Reliability

When looking for this kind of sign, it is important to consider the materials used in its construction. Investigate the motor; some companies offer metal or plastic gears. Plastic will fall apart before you have the opportunity to get the most out of your sign. Alternatively, Velocity Signs provides custom-made motors with copper gears, which last considerably longer and work more efficiently. Additionally, they use diamond plate, industrial strength steel and welding.

I have seen other machines that use a motorcycle battery that only last 8-10 hours—and to top if off, the company does not offer a warranty because they know these batteries will not last. Velocity Signs use a 12 volt absorption glass mat (AGM) non-spillable lead acid battery that lasts 45 + hours and comes with a two-year warranty!

They are the top of the line batteries that are used in police and military vehicles. Their machines have a built in, high end, pre-programmed charger with a 5 year warranty that comes with a battery life indicator so you know when to recharge your machine. You simply plug it in overnight and your machine is ready to perform all day/night long. I’ve even seen their machines at stores that are open 24 hours.

The sign machines offered at Velocity Signs, unlike the ones offered by companies that try to replicate them, can withstand high gusts of wind upwards of 25 mph. Their unique design allows you to add specialty ground anchors with a tie down strap or wind stabilizer bars for increased stability during extreme wind conditions. They are weather proof and survive extreme heat, rain, and snow—the only items that require protection are the sign spinning mannequin’s clothing, but protective rain suits are available.

Even after two years, Velocity Sign’s machines have been tested and proved to stay in great condition and continue to function like new! Also, did you know that Velocity Signs have top of the line wheels and handles making the machine incredibly easy to move around? You’ll never have to worry about a flat tire and the handle makes for simple transportation in and out of your business or to and from an event.

All of the electronics, the charger, battery, wiring system, switches, and motor are protected by metal and in a locked secure space within the machine. Also all of the machines come with a security cable and padlock to prevent theft.

Convenience and Design

Many companies that have attempted to imitate the original product with cheap versions, offer limited designs, however, Velocity Signs offers five different and distinctive models that are customizable to your needs. For example, there is a standard option with a mannequin, a premium option that you can install a sign on the front and back of the machine for exposure from every angle, and you can add LED lighting and/or a mannequin. All of the premium machines are interchangeable to suit your company’s individual desires, and even come with FREE sign design to ensure your brand is represented how it should be!

Velocity Signs even offers financing for up to 5 years! With these professional looking machines that have proven to increase sales, you can guarantee you will make back the money you invest within several weeks.
