Tree removal is not something you rush into, even if you have some knowledge of tree felling. It’s also not a job you give to a jack-of-all-trade handyman driving around in a pickup. Tree removal is a project that demands a high level of expertise and experience. But, how do you choose the best person for the job? Here are a few considerations to make before hiring a tree removal company.
You should find out whether the tree service is licensed and has adequate insurance.
Ensure that the tree removal company has workers’ compensation and liability insurance. These certificates will protect you from liabilities related to property damage or injuries during the project. Avoid companies that request payment in advance or companies that do not provide a cost estimate of the project before the project begins. They are likely to charge more than the project costs.
It would be best if you also went for companies that have the required equipment for the job. The equipment should also be well maintained to prevent job delays related to equipment failure. More importantly, do not shy away from asking for references to gauge the quality of service that the company provides.
