Owning a house and a garden undoubtedly comes with certain responsibilities, whether one likes it or not. The house needs to be properly taken care of and the garden needs regular maintenance to look its best.
Sometimes trees need pruning to grow in a healthy way in the long term and sometimes they even need to be removed entirely. Reasons why tree-removal sometimes is necessary include tree-diseases, if the tree has grown into a bad spot and is at risk of hurting the surroundings, if the tree is bothering a neighbour or even blocking the evening sun. After a tree-removal, stump-grinding is often also necessary to remove the stump.
No matter what tree-service you’re in need of, it’s important to choose the right tree-company, a company that is professional, safe and reliable. As a customer it’s easy to go with a company simply because of a low price, but this is almost always a mistake and something that can even be more expensive in the long run.
We’ve gotten the following tips from a Swedish tree-service company, Trädfällning Västerås. With these tips in mind you’ll soon be on your way to get your trees taken care of in the best way possible.
What’s actually included in the service
Sometimes you might be offered a very good price that almost seems too good to be true. In these cases it’s very important to ask what’s actually included and what’s not included. Sometimes the quote you get doesn’t include the actual removal of the tree or the stump-grinding and you’ll end up spending a lot more than you thought you would.
Is the company certified and insured?
When considering hiring a company it’s very important to first check to see if they have proper insurance and the certifications needed. If you hire a company that is not insured and something goes wrong, you can actually get in trouble yourself. You also definitely don’t want anyone without proper certifications working with your trees as tree-care is a very dangerous job and there are many things that can go wrong if the person performing them doesn’t know what he or she is doing.
What do other people think?
It’s also important to see what other people who have hired the company thought of their service. For most serious tree-service companies you should be able to find reviews online, whether on Facebook, Yelp or Google. If you can’t find any reviews anywhere you should ask friends and people you know if they’ve hired the company themselves and have anything good to say about them. If a company has many bad reviews, it’s a good indicator that you should stay away from the company and find someone else for the job. On the other hand, just because a company has one bad review, it doesn’t always mean the company is not good. Mostly good reviews is a good sign that the company cares about their customers and provides a great service.
That’s it, if you follow these tips you’re soon on your way to hire a great company for your trees. I hope you’ve gotten some good value out of this blog post. Feel free to share it with your close ones.
