  • Q: What information do I need in order to get an installation quote?

    A: Please provide us with a complete scope of work: the location of the site; whether the job will be union or non-union; and a comprehensive fixture plan and/or a fixture take-off showing all accessories to be installed.

  • Q: I’m in the process of building a new store. When should I start to install my fixtures?

    A: To prevent damage from construction and other trade workers, we recommend saving fixture installation for the final phases of your project.

  • Q: How much advance notice do you need for a project?

    A: We ask that you notify us at least two weeks in advance. During the peak season, we may need as much as three weeks’ advance notice.

  • Q: How far in advance do I need to schedule the install?

    A: Our standard lead-time is at least two weeks. During the peak season, we may need as much as three weeks. Once your job is scheduled, if problems exist that require a change in the install date, we will work with you to reschedule.

  • Q: How long will the installation take?

    A: Project timeframes are dependent upon the size and scope of work. However, we can adjust to your schedule, so if you have special requirements, please let us know. Our business model allows us the flexibility to meet even the strictest of deadlines.

  • Q: How much does installation cost?

    A: Unfortunately, there is no flat rate or easy calculation for installation charges. All jobs are different, and labor costs vary by location. However, we would be happy to provide you with a customized quote based on your specific project needs. Quotes are typically issued the same day we receive your information.

  • Q: How can I reduce the cost of my installation?

    A: Depending on your capabilities, the following steps could save you money on the installation:

    • Furnish unloading and material-handling equipment
    • Supply dumpsters for trash removal
    • Install the upper shelves and accessories yourself
    • Provide firing strips for anchoring the fixtures
  • Q: Can my employees help with the installation?

    A: Yes! We can send an experienced installation supervisor to guide your employees through the installation process. The supervisor can stay as long as you deem necessary, whether it’s for a couple of hours, one day, or the duration of the entire job. This option is a good way to not only save money on labor costs, but also to give your employees an in-depth understanding of the store fixtures’ mechanics and configurations.

  • Q: Do you subcontract labor?

    A: Yes. In order to respond quickly to our clients’ needs, as well as keep travel costs to a minimum, we employ highly qualified carpenters and subcontractors throughout the country.

  • Q: I’m an independent contractor interested in working with National Installers. Who do I contact for job inquiries?

    A: Please send all sub-contracting and other employment inquiries to Sonny McCurry at
