That is why it is pretty important for you as a prospective customer to be always on guard.

Tree service companies are not resistant to scams and fraud. However, when your gut instinct is telling you something you better listen because it is mostly right. A reputable tree service company will not do a door to door sales talk. They will usually put up and ad or by word of mouth and wait for customers to call. They don’t give you an estimate and then ask for the full amount. That is not how it works, tree service costs expensive depending on the work done. However, you don’t need to pay in full not until you see progress or results.
In choosing the right tree service company here are something that they should be able to provide you with no questions ask.
- Their reference contacts
A company who has done work before will surely have a list of contacts in which you can ask about their customer service. Did the company deliver the results they wanted and how did they do it. A good company will not be scared of their past clients feedback because they are that confident of their work.
- Their insurance certificate
A company who is all for the customer satisfaction and protection of its employees will provide them an insurance. As a way to protect yourself do not assume that the company has an insurance already. You should ask to see the insurance certificate if you want them to work for you. That way if an accident happens you don’t have to dole out thousands to compensate the workers.
- Their written estimate of the work
When you are considering with the company to work for you, they will give you a written estimate of the work you want done, so you can see the whole picture in the financial department. It is pretty important for you to ask them this so you don’t get shock when the work is done.
- A clear path of how to pay
There should be a clear agreement on how the payment is made. There shouldn’t be any vagueness in the whole transaction. Everything should be upfront and clear to you. You don’t want to know a certain aspect after you already signed the contract. That could be pretty bad for you.
- Their licenses and credentials
You also need to see their licenses and credentials. It is a way to know that these people can deliver results and can clearly do it in a safe but efficient manner. To ensure that you get your penny’s worth you’ll have to be a little ruthless but that is just how it is in the world.
