Five tips to choose the right tree service

In any industry, you’ll find genuine companies that are trying to help others, but you’ll also find scam artists or companies that perform hack jobs.  You want a Wallaceburg Ontario tree removal service that will tend to your tree while keeping its aesthetics or assist you in safely cutting down your tree.  How do you ensure that you are hiring a good quality company?  By keeping these five things in mind when you’re scouting tree removal services.

Tip #1: Are they insured?

This is a biggie.  The service you’re considering should always have insurance.  No exceptions.  Don’t be afraid to ask to see certificates of insurance and have them be sent directly from the insurance agency either.  Why?  If the company has an accident on your property and does not have proper insurance, then you will be held liable.  Not only will you have to pay for services rendered, but you’ll have to pay for any injuries that could have resulted.

Before you hire a Wallaceburg Ontario tree removal service, ask for insurance.

Tip #2: Shop around before deciding on a Wallaceburg Ontario tree removal service

Getting multiple estimates may take time, but you will ultimately walk away with a solid service that’s giving you the best bang for your buck.  How else will you know if the price is too high or too low?  Not only will it help with pricing, you can also ask questions to gage the company’s expertise.

Tip #3: The price is right

If the price the company is quoting you is too good to be true, well… you know what they say.  Everyone loves a bargain, but a super low price could be due to lack of experience, lack of insurance (see above), or lack of intention to do the job properly.

Similarly, if the price is much higher than what other companies are quoting, the extra money is simply going to line the company coffers.

Tip #4: Check with the Better Business Bureau

Get a company that is accredited with the Better Business Bureau, which will allow you to check out their rating, as well as any complaints that have been lodged against them.

Tip #5: Look into the company’s reputation

While shopping for a Wallaceburg Ontario tree removal service, ask around to see which company has a good reputation.  Also go online to look at reviews in a variety of places.  A company can say all the right things, but reviews are telling.
