I have a service that will place the yard post/sign and will remove after the property is sold.  I place the lock box myself.

It was always done professionally.  Many of the cities like Beverly Hills require a permit for each sign that is placed.  We had better things to do with our time than spend hours waiting in line at city hall.  A

I work mostly with condos which, unlike SFRs, do not permit signs to be installed so rarely need sign placement. When I had commercial listings in the past, a vendor was used for sign installation and was well worth the cost since different cities/municipalities here have different regulations about when the sign can be placed. I place any riders or lockboxes as needed.
