When it comes to choosing the best tree service company for your tree’s needs, there’s a lot that you should take into consideration. Below, we will discuss what those things are and why they are important.
Are They Certified, Licensed, and Insured?
Working with a certified and accredited company is extremely important. Credentials from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) help customers by ensuring that they are choosing a company that is knowledgeable about the service they are providing. Those looking to gain credentials from the ISA have to go through advanced training, and often choose to pursue further professional development – meaning that they are up to date on information about their service….
Why is it Important That the Company is Insured?
When a company has insurance, it means that they are willing to take responsibility for any accidents or mistakes that may occur while on the job. A company’s insurance doesn’t just cover for anything that may happen to your yard or tree. It also covers any tools that may become damaged and any employees that may become injured while on the job. An uninsured service comes with multiple liabilities, and that’s not something that you want to have to deal with.
Affordable Tree and Landscaping is certified, licensed and insured, and we are proud to display our credentials from the International Society of Arboriculture.
How Do Their Costs Compare to Other Companies in the Area?
Does a company’s pricing seem too high or too low? Does the price seem too good to be true? That’s because it probably is. Follow and trust your instincts when it comes to pricing, and don’t go with the first company you come across, without shopping around for estimates. Shopping around for estimates allows you to make sure that you are paying what the service is worth.
What’s Their Reputation?
A company’s reputation can make or break their business. While shopping around for estimates, make sure to read the company’s reviews. Reviews allow you to see what working with the company will be like. Does the company have bad reviews? If so, don’t go with them. Does the company have mixed reviews? Be careful about working with them. Does the company have good reviews? Definitely consider them in your options.
While you may hear that your neighbor’s own landscaping business or their friend’s business is “one of the best” and that they can “more than likely give you a discount,” it doesn’t mean that you should automatically go with them. A company that is certified, licensed, and insured is just as important as their reputation, quality of service, and the price you pay for that service.
