With more than 144,000 billboard faces in North America, Lamar is one of the largest out-of-home advertising companies in the world. We have billboards on property owned by more than 60,000 individuals and businesses across the U.S. and Canada. We have over 100 years of experience in the out-of-home advertising industry, and we understand the importance of creating a beneficial experience for our landowners, the local communities and all parties involved.
We consider our landowners our partners. Our local real estate professionals have extensive experience developing lease programs that not only maximize landowners’ assets, but also help them cover the expenses of owning property. We help our partners generate income and get the most out of their property, without interrupting its normal use. You’ll enjoy a risk-free, long-term relationship with Lamar.
Turn an inactive property into a revenue source. Rent payments from Lamar provide landowners with a steady source of income, helping you maximize property investments, pay for property taxes and increase the potential resale value.
Direct Deposit for Landowners
Lamar offers landowners the convenience of direct deposit for lease payments. If you would like to receive lease payments via direct deposit, please visit our Lease Direct Deposit page for additional information.
Lamar uses rigid engineering standards to build structurally sound and safe billboard structures. The structure designs are versatile to meet the specific needs of your property, while minimizing the amount of required ground space to ensure no inconvenience to ongoing business operations. We have vast experience operating on landowners’ property without getting in their way.
Lamar is fully insured and holds you, the property owner, harmless from any claims for damage caused by our structures or employees.
No Cost to Landowners
Lamar is responsible for all installation, lighting and maintenance costs. We will professionally install, illuminate and maintain the billboard structures on your property to ensure a quality appearance.
Working for a Better Community Partnership
Lamar operates over 200 offices across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. We pride ourselves on our familiarity with the local communities. Our employees work, shop and go to schools and churches very close to the locations of our displays. As a result, we are much attuned to the needs of our communities.
We are accustomed to listening to the concerns of our partners and the broader community, evaluating the limitations of a piece of property (overhead power lines, underground cables, restricted access) and devising solutions that satisfy all involved. We strictly adhere to local ordinances to help preserve scenic beauty. We have extensive experience working with local city planners, landscape architects and others to create signage that is embraced by our communities.
Good Advertising Practices
We support the first amendment right of advertisers to promote legal products and services by providing:
- Exclusionary zones prohibiting out-of-home advertisements of products illegal for sale to minors that are intended to be read from or within 500 feet of elementary and secondary schools, public playgrounds and established places of worship
- Established reasonable limits on the total number of outdoor displays in a market that may carry messages about products that are illegal for sale to minors
- Public service messages to promote worthy community causes
- Broad diversification of customers that advertise in the out-of-home medium
- The right to reject advertising that is misleading, offensive or otherwise incompatible with individual community standards
