Finding the right tree cutting service can be a stressful process. Your trees are the most attractive part of your yard, but they’re also the most irreplaceable part. If you injure an old tree, you cannot simply replace it with a new one—that takes years, even decades. This is why it’s so important to pick the very best tree cutting service if you need your tree cut or trimmed.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a small primer with tips we think can help you pick the best tree cutting service.
Build your list
First, look for tree service providers in your area by searching online for businesses in your local area. Get an overview of all the businesses near you. You are going to be examining the businesses on this list according to certain criteria to determine which business represents the best value for you.
Read reviews online
Once you’ve got your initial list, begin reading reviews of the companies’ work online. Their own websites are usually good place to start, but don’t ignore Angie’s List, Yelp, the Better Business Bureau and Google Business, as well as social media pages. Don’t be immediately turned off by one or two bad reviews. Remember that every business runs into customers that they simply won’t be able to please. However, the vast majority of their reviews should be good. Anyone with bad reviews (or no reviews) you should feel comfortable removing from your list at this point.
Compare how long each company has been in business
This is in underappreciated factor. Any business that has stood the test of time has proven its value. You can’t make it in the business world performing inferior services or trying to take advantage of people. The simple fact that a business has lasted a long time, especially a small local business, is tremendous proof that the business and its owners are doing things the right way.
Make sure they’re insured
This is really just to make sure that you’re not looking at a business that routinely cuts corners. If a business is not fully insured, especially a tree trimming business, they are willing to risk passing liability onto you, the customer, in order to save a few bucks in the here and now. Any company that would be willing to risk your livelihood to perform its services is frankly so inferior that it does not deserve to be in business anymore.
Compare quotes and get an estimate in writing
Finally, once you narrow down your choices by picking only those with the best reviews, who have been in business long enough to prove their worth and who are fully certified and insured, you want to compare them based on the criteria of cost. Make sure that you get your quote written down on paper so that it cannot be changed on you after the services have been delivered. Ideally, since you’ve read reviews and are looking for a company that’s been in business for a while, you won’t run across companies who would try this sort of thing, but it’s always good business practice to sign the papers ahead of time.
