You Can Pay to Have Your Christmas Lights Installed?

Updated: Feb 26

More importantly, they will remove them after the Christmas season.

My wife and I walk our neighborhood as our daily exercise regime. As per usual, we admire the Christmas lights throughout the community. Some neighbors start the ritual early and often add to their displays. Some people bypass the typical external lighting and stick to decorating indoors. I like the person that pays to have their house adorned with Christmas lights.


I was lucky to see one such house in our neighborhood with professional treatment. Not to be too facetious, but I believe I could have done a better job. It’s not to say they weren’t done “professionally,” but decorating the bushes and outlining the landscaping seemed to be the bare minimum. I’m not saying the house needed to be lit up like the Griswold home from “Christmas Vacation,” but maybe elevate the lights just a bit more.

I think if you are going to pay a professional, go all out. You have some disposable income burning a hole in your pocket; let’s make that home shine!

Looking into professional light installation, you are required to buy your lights from the installer. Only then will they fully stand behind the lights and provide a proper warranty.

  1. They are fully insured (very important should there be any damage to your property)

  2. They are trained in working at heights taking the danger out of the owner’s hands. If I were to add lights to the uppermost portion of my home, I would need a massive extension ladder.

  3. The lights are tailored to the home. There is something to be said of lights lined up like “soldiers”

  4. The service is turn-key (they provide the lights and the labor to install them, along with the extension cords, and the timers)

  5. They will provide Rubbermaid containers for storing the lights once they remove them after usage.

The lights they remove can be stored next year and re-installed using the same company next Christmas. You can add to the display as you wish, but they request you do it at install time. There is something to say about leaving it to the professionals, provided you have the money to do so!
