The first step to ensuring that your compound is clean is to ensure that all the tree stamps and trees are uprooted. The first step to ensuring this is to look for a tree service company, who will take care of the stamps. The first thing that you have to do is to consider the risks that come with hiring a tree service company. This work is dangerous and you can easily get hurt when a tree falls on you. So, you need to look for professionals and the best place to look for them is the internet. Check whether the companies that you have identified are legitimate.
Be sure if the companies that you have chosen have a legal business license that allows them to work for you. Sample out a few companies so that you can meet up with the company representatives to discuss their services. An insurance cover is very important and you need to confirm whether the companies have the insurance cover. Confirm whether the insurance cover is update and it should be a liability insurance cover. This is important because in case one of the company workers gets injured you will not be liable to pay his medical bills.
Ask the companies if they offer safety gear for their workers. If the company gives safe gear to its workers it means that they care about them and you will not provide the safety gears yourself. Ask the companies to tell you their estimate charges. However, it is important that you ensure that the estimates are in writing. Any legitimate company will ensure that they have written down the estimates. Writing the estimate charges will allow you to prove that you have worked with the company before.
When you find out their prices do not pay them immediately. Most tree services do not ask for upfront payments. You should pay the company after they have completed their work and you have accessed whether the work that they have done is satisfactory. In case a company is requesting for money up front you need to refuse this offer as most likely the company is out to con you of your money.
Ask around from people who have worked with these companies that you have identified. If you have this information, you will be able to know what other customers think about the companies. The testimonials of other customers is helpful especially when you are choosing a company to hire. Carefully scrutinize the services of each company after you are done with the consultations with the company agents. Finally, choose the best tree service company for you to hire.
