Whether you’re just looking for a tree trimming estimate or want to schedule complete tree removal, you need to find a reliable tree service company for the job. It’s essential to do your research before hiring any company for your next home project, especially to take care of your trees.
Choosing a quality tree service company ensures the work is done safely and with proper equipment. You’ll also end up with a healthy yard and better curb appeal. But, how do you know which companies are reliable and which are just out for money? We’ve put together this list of 3 things to look for before hiring a tree company.
1. Check for Experience and Insurance
The first thing to consider before hiring a company is experience. It’s not enough to just look at a company’s website and decide they’re the best choice because they sound like the right people. A great tree service company will have years of experience in this field.
They should also have some kind of insurance policy, which protects them against accidents or damage to your property. Insurance protects you as a customer and the workers while they are on the job on your property.
2. Get an Estimate
It’s always wise to get an estimate on the job beforehand to ensure you understand precisely what they will do and how much it will cost. The estimate is just that: an estimate. The actual price may be higher or lower than the estimate. If you have doubts about the price, ask for a second opinion or discuss your budget with the tree expert.
3. Read Reviews
As anyone who has ever hired a tree service knows, sometimes the best way to find a good company is to ask around. There are many websites where you can read reviews of tree service companies in your area, and many of these sites offer free advertising for their advertisers. But you need to be careful that the reviews are not paid for by the companies themselves; this might give you a biased view of their performance.
When in doubt, it’s always best to check Google reviews or ask family, friends, and neighbors their thoughts on a company if they have worked with them before.
Before you agree to hire a tree service company, ask yourself if they’re offering their services at fair prices. Are they honest? Are they experienced? Do they use good equipment? Can they provide insurance in the case that they damage your property or injure someone?
