Attract more customers and deter crime
with a dependable lighting service plan.
Poorly lit parking lots and exteriors attract unwanted activity and drive away customers. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics,
more than 1 in 10 property crimes occur in parking lots or garages. Don’t be part of a statistic. Reduce unwanted activity — and increase
sales — with a steady commercial lighting service plan from Lighting Technologies.
Here’s a photo of a parking lot in need of service repair. Next to it is a parking lot that we service monthly under a planned lighting
maintenance (PLM) program. Where would you rather park? Where would you feel safer?

Choose the lighting service plan that best fits your needs.
Lighting Technologies offers three popular commercial lighting service repair plans.
The Fixed Monthly Fee option is designed for those who want best-in-class lighting service. This plan:
- Guarantees service for any covered outage for a set monthly fee
- Has a adjustable pricing structure based on service intervals
- Stabilizes your month-to-month lighting service repair costs
Unitized Pricing is another option, formulated for those that prefer a set repair price per fixture. This plan:
- Guarantees a fixed price for repair part, labor, and recycling
- Lets you choose the service frequency
- Eliminates “surprise” per-fixture repair costs
Time and Materials is the third option, perfect for those that only want to pay for fixture repair as they need it. This plan:
- Allows you to choose when to request a repair
- Provides the flexibility to manage your repair costs by setting a NTE (Not-To-Exceed) Amount
- Eliminates the month-to-month lighting service repair costs
Of course we can customize a commercial lighting repair plan just for you if one of these do not fit your need. Finally, consider
saving BIG on your business’ overall lighting bill with a commercial lighting upgrade. We are the experts at LED lighting.

Five questions for your lighting service provider
Consider these five important questions when vetting your next professional lighting service provider:
- What can you repair?
- Who will be performing the repairs?
- How will you protect my customers, employees, and property from injury, death, or damage?
- How do you handle emergency calls?
- How will you help my bottom line?
If your lighting company can’t answer these questions to your satisfaction, perhaps it’s time to hire one that can. Don’t take
the chance of spending too much money, taking unnecessary safety risks, and dealing with frustrations that are easily resolvable.
1. What can you repair?
There are many types of lighting. LED is a particular challenge because it’s so new, nothing has been standardized.
Therefore, you need a contractor who has the expertise and equipment to troubleshoot and repair any commercial
lighting system issue from A to Z — in other words, from the circuit breaker to the lamp.
Ask the contractor for references related to the type of lighting repair you require too. Once you vet a few,
you’ll discover why many lighting service providers are not qualified to meet your needs before, during or after the repair.
2. Who will be performing the lighting repairs?
A professional lighting contractor who self-performs the work will get to know your property and your staff, becoming more efficient
each time. The technician will learn what to stock on his truck so that he can complete the repair in one trip.
A lighting contractor who subs your repairs to someone else may send one contractor today, another the next time, and still another
the time after that. That’s an inferior approach which results in inferior repairs.
Bottom line, it’s your property. Wouldn’t you rather be in control of which contractor works on it?
3. How will you protect my customers, employees, and
property from injury, death, or damage?
As a property owner, you’re ultimately responsible for the safety and happiness of everyone on your property.
If the risk of litigation isn’t enough to keep you awake at night, OSHA is aggressively enforcing workplace safety rules.
If your lighting contractor is cited for a violation and it doesn’t have deep enough pockets, OSHA will go after you.
The best protection is to choose a commercial lighting contractor that is committed to safety. This means its employees have
been provided the appropriate OSHA safety training, and that they continue to receive ongoing training so that safety is always
at the top of their minds. In addition, the contractor furnishes all employees with the right personal safety equipment and
inspects it regularly.
Finally, your contractor should carry appropriate levels of General Liability, Vehicle, and Workman’s Compensation Insurance.
If a lighting service provider is offering you cut-rate pricing, what is it cutting to get there? Is it safety? Is it insurance?
Is that really a bargain?
4. How do you handle emergency calls?
Sometimes lighting issues are critical safety issues. Perhaps your light pole is damaged and about to fall. Or it could be Black Friday
and your property is full of customers, but your parking lot is dark and unsafe.
Long before this happens to your business, you need to ask “How do you handle emergency calls?”
A commercial lighting contractor who self-performs its work will take better care of you than one that subs out the work. Think about it …
how much luck will your business need getting a lighting contractor to track down a subcontractor in the middle of the night?
Your professional lighting contractor should have an emergency on-call policy. And it should have a reliable, experienced technician,
ready to respond to any commercial lighting emergency.
5. How will you help my bottom line?
If you think about it, an ideal lighting system affects your entire operation. It enables your employees to see to do
their work safely and efficiently. It attracts customers and deters crime. Great lighting makes people happy and your
products more appealing.
A “good” commercial lighting contractor will strive to repair your outages in a responsive manner at a fair price.
But a “great” lighting contractor will also consider “How can the lighting system maximize revenues and minimize costs?”
A great professional lighting service provider will:
- recommend solutions to correct inconsistent lighting,
- offer advice for improving your lighting system’s reliability and
- propose ways to minimize energy costs
It will look for additional lighting opportunities to attract more customers for your business as well. And it will do all these things continually.
