We often get asked if we buy old signs..Yes of course we do... BUT..we have to see pictures of what you have because the condition issue makes a world of difference in price. This is an example of the value placed on condition: 1939 Coca-Cola green version thermometers. One on the left has many chips around outside edges and some on face ..VALUE:$200-$250...The identical thermometer on the right has two tiny edge chips and ..VALUE is:$2200.00

Yes We Can Ship Large Signs

These images reflect the great care we put into crating large signs for shipment. T​his was a Rexall Drugs sign that measured 8' X 3' and took several man hours to crate securely and arrived safely.
