Warning System Delivery & Installation

Your community’s warning system equipment will be factory-delivered directly to West Shore Services’ Allendale facility. Our technicians will assemble and mount the necessary parts prior to loading on to one of our special air ride trailers for delivery to your installation site.

We utilize our own staff and equipment and are a licensed electrical contractor so we take responsibility for the entire project. Installation is as easy as 1-2-3 with our project management skills. We even handle the site selection, Miss-Dig, and electrical needs.
