First, you’ll want to look around for the more experienced companies. It’s good to find ones that have been in business for several years and have dealt with all sorts of issues, rather than “newbies.”
The Right Qualifications
That said, next you’d want to consider how well qualified the company and its workers are for the job you want to get done. Therefore, ask good questions of your contact person. If he or she answers them to your satisfaction, that’s good; if not, that’s a red flag. For instance, you can ask what specific tools a company uses to remove trees. What techniques do they use? What stands them out from their competition? Have the workers taken special training classes and have completion certificates to show for their course work?
Thirdly, you’ll want to read reviews of area companies. Online reviews can tell you a lot about a place and its people rather quickly. If the company gets consistently low ratings, something’s wrong. Even good old fashioned “asking around” helps when selecting a tree removal company. Ask neighbors, friends, family or co-workers who they’ve used in the past and what they thought of their job overall. You’ll learn a lot when you check online and/or “ask around” for reviews.
Licenses and Insurance
Finally, when talking with companies you might hire, ask about their insurance. For example, “What if there’s damage done to my property? What if someone’s injured?” You’d want to know who’d be responsible for covering associated costs concerning damage or injuries. Obviously, you’d want to choose a company that’s insured for the work they do. Naturally, you’d want a company that can/will do the job you need them to do, to completion, on time and on budget.
