Home Surrounded by Trees

When hiring a professional to remove trees from your property, it is important that you always ask questions before committing to any deals and ensure that all of the information given is correct. This will help you avoid any additional costs for mishaps that require services such as lawn, fence, or home repairs. So, before you hire, ask for the following information from at least three or four companies to gauge which one is the most qualified and has the best offer.

1. Are they properly licensed and insured?

Any professional Tree Removal Service will be willing to show these documents to prospective customers. If they refuse to do so, then you should automatically stop considering them for your service. All removal services should be able to produce proof that they are certified in their practice by the state and are protecting their team in case of injuries.

2. Do they have good and reliable reviews?

When a business does good work, their clients are usually willing to give them a high rated and detailed review. Most businesses will display this information on their own website or can easily be found through the company’s Google reviews. Reading the experiences that other clients had with a company will help to give you the peace of mind that you deserve when deciding which tree removal service is the right choice for you.

3. Can you get an estimate from them?

Each company is different, and so their costs will also vary depending on services. Many will be able to give you an estimate for tree removals based on the information you provide. It will also benefit you to inquire about services such a stump removal.

4. What is the length of the removal process?

Labor time is almost always included in the removal service estimate you are given by a company. Asking this question helps you to narrow down which offers the quickest removal; helping to save you both time and money in the end.

5. Do they have proper and necessary equipment for the job?

Every company will bring its own set of tools to get the job done. These tools include items such as axes, chainsaws, trucks, and an array of safety gear. It’s always a good idea to ask about the tools they are using to assess whether the company has all of the necessary equipment to safely remove the trees from your property. If they seem to be missing the essentials, consider another company for your job. An example of special equipment used at JC Tree Care is a bucket truck. This allows our team to safely work with dead trees that are unsafe for climbing, reduces the impact of the tree during removal, and creates a safer work environment.

Now you’re ready to compare the companies.

Our final tip is to consider making a ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ list for each company you contacted in order to decide which professional tree care service you can trust to remove those unwanted trees on your property in a timely manner, without the risk of additional damage charges, and at the best price for you and your family.
