Tips to Hire a Professional Tree Service
When you are looking for a professional tree service provider, you could be overwhelmed with the number of options advertised in your local newspaper, the yellow pages or on social media these days. So how should you choose the ‘one’?
Well, the easiest thing to do is to look for recommendations. Make some calls, send out a few text messages and so some web surfing. Once the word is out, you would be sorting through your options much more quickly than you though before. Trust is essential in which ever service provider you decide to go with. While there are reputed companies like Thornton tree removal and trimming, you cannot simply trust any small company that offers to take on your assignment.
Once you short list your options, start talking to the companies one by one. Again, word of mouth is fine, but to ensure the your rights as a customer, make sure to get the estimates and term and conditions that you agree on in writing. If the company representative makes excuses in giving you the offer in writing, you should be looking elsewhere.
Always make sure that the agreed amount to be paid is only handed over AFTER the work has completed. Since tree service companies do not require purchasing any equipment for your job alone, they should not be asking for any sort of payment in advance before completing the project.
Do not simply select the cheaper option! While you may be enticed by saving a few hundred dollars upfront, you may end up with a yard filled with chunks of timber or brush that is not towed away by the contractor simply because they did not offer cleanup services due to the lower pricing. Safest bet is to compare the estimates from several different companies and choose the one that offers more value for your money.
