How to Get Your Own Cell Tower

7 Steps to Get a Cell Tower on Your Property

Steel in the Air has been serving property owners and local governments in lease negotiations against wireless carriers and cell tower companies for nearly 15 years. Our expertise consists of lease and tower valuation, lease negotiations, and brokerage .

HERE IS WHAT WE CANNOT HELP YOU WITH:

Getting a cell tower on your property – unless you have already been contacted by a wireless carrier or tower company who has expressed explicit interest in leasing a parcel of your land. Marketing your cell tower or cell site to carriers – because you think it’s valuable and would make a good location for a cell site.

If You Want to Try Yourself to Get a Tower On Your Property- Continue Reading.

Steel in the Air is regularly approached by landowners who are interested in entering into a cell tower lease agreement with wireless carriers as tenants. We are often asked “How can I get a cell tower on my property?”, and the answer we give is always the same: You can’t convince wireless carriers to build a tower on your land unless it fits into their pre-existing network infrastructure plans; and, if it did, you would probably already know about it. But even after saying that, we still hear pleas, such as: “But my land is ideal! It’s the highest parcel within 20 miles, and the coverage is horrible here.” We’ve created this page, specifically for anyone in the situation described above.
