How it Works
We come to your home to discuss lights, colors, and design. We’ll work with you to create the perfect light display—you can choose your own colors, light spacing, accessories, and more!
On installation day, we will show up ready to hang your lights & make your house or business shine bright! You can schedule your installation when it’s most convenient for you. In fact, you don’t even need to be home while we work!
At the end of the season, we will return to take the lights down for you. Removal is scheduled in advance and the cost is included in your original quote. We carefully label all lights accordingly for easy installation next year. Then package the lights in a container that we store in a secure facility for next season!

Frequently Asked Questions
ARE THERE CONTRACTS INVOLVED?
Yes, there is a contract to lease our services and products. We offer lease terms for either 1 season or 3 season terms. Customers selecting 3 season terms receive an additional discount!
HOW MUCH DOES A HOLIDAY LIGHT DISPLAY COST?
This is probably the most common question. Every project is different and many variables can affect the cost such as amount of lighting required, number of staff required, project challenges, and height variables and equipment needed.
Our average residential display ranges from $750 to $1,500. Our average commercial display can be around $2,500 – $5,000, again depending on the scope of work required. We also can service large scale events such as drive-thru displays or theme parks, which can range from $100,000 – $500,000. Every project can range depending on how much lighting you envision for your property. No matter how big or how small a project is, Illuminations Holiday Lighting is dedicated to making it one of a kind!
DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR SERVICE CALLS?
No. Service calls are included as part of our lease program. Our customers pay for high quality lighting displays that should last throughout the holiday season. However, due to weather and other variables, there are times when bulbs need replacing. Part of our process is to check materials before installation and provide brand new product every 4 years, regardless of condition. Simply call Illuminations and someone will be out to fix your display ASAP. *There are some exceptions to this, as defined in the lease.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes! We carry a $1,000,000.00 liability insurance for every project. A copy of our Certificate of Insurance coverage can be provided upon request.
CAN I PICK A SPECIFIC DATE/TIME FOR MY INSTALL?
Yes, we try our best to accommodate our customers’ requests and have your lights installed by specific dates. Most lighting is installed by neighborhood / region to speed up the process. We begin installing as early as Halloween to ensure all lights are up before December 1st.
WILL YOU USE LIGHTS I OWN?
No, unfortunately not. Most likely customer lights are box store bought, which will not have the same brightness, color, and durability. Most of all, if there was a failure of these personal lights, any damage would not be covered under our insurance carrier.
WHEN DO THE LIGHTS GET REMOVED?
Our lighting crew begins removing lights in early January. If you would like to keep your display up slightly longer than others, we can plan your lighting removal for later in the month. However, we will attempt to get all displays down by a specific date. This helps prevent damage, due to harsh weather and ice accumulation. Note: Per company policy, we may not access your roof if it is snow covered or presents a danger to our team. If dangerous conditions are present, we will return at a later date to safely remove the display.
WHAT TYPE OF LIGHTS DO YOU USE?
Illuminations uses only high quality, commercial grade LED lights. In rare occasions like TV productions, we’ll utilize incandescent lights.
We have access to a wide range of commercial products across the country. From custom light strands, a variety of garland and greenery, artificial trees from 12 feet tall all the way up to 70 feet tall, decorative bows, 3D light displays, and decorations for city light poles and overhead decor!

DENISE LORENZETTIVestal, NY
After losing our “Mr. Christmas,” our family wasn’t sure our neighborhood would ever glow again. If it weren’t for Illuminations Holiday Lighting, that probably would have been the case. We are so thankful to Eddie and his team. Not only did they light up our neighborhood, but they did it with the class and heartfelt care that we needed during the most difficult time. Thank you, Illuminations, for making sure our holidays were bright—and for honoring “Mr. Christmas” in a way that would make him incredibly proud.
BARB PHILLIPSBinghamton, NY
You could not ask for a nicer and more professional company! Eddie and his team went above and beyond not only to do the job amazingly, but to also make sure our requests were heard. We were happy with every little touch and we were taken care of from start to finish. We have already committed to their schedule for both the home and the office for next year. I highly recommend Illuminations!
RANDAL INNISBinghamton, NY
I was so impressed with the professionalism and the work that was done to our house. People would stop and take pictures, and if we were outside our neighbors would tell us how beautiful the decorations were. Our house was truly the talk of the neighborhood and I cannot wait for the holiday season again! Loved it!!!
JOANN MASTRONARDIBinghamton, NY
Eddie was very knowledgeable and great to work with. He kept my wishes within my budget; and was timely and professional. It was a pleasure to work with him.
