Mobile sign - peddler Mobile sign

When "on the move" signs make advertising sense, MSI has a variety of products to direct, inform and attract attention.

In urban settings, compressed marketing corridors, during entertainment events and in parking lots MOBILE signs grab potential clients' attention and create interest.


Mobile Signs (also called Peddlers in the industry) typically run on weekend days (Saturday or Sunday) but can be operated any day of the week. In many locations the trailer is stored on client property and picked up at the beginning of the weekend shift.

A driving (or peddling) shift is typically six hours. Each shift has scheduled breaks, including a lunch break (required at six hours). Standard hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; or 12 noon to 6 p.m.

The Area Supervisor checks on all service in their area including Mobile Signs. They perform evaluations and the client also has the opportunity to give feedback.
