Having a well-preserved yard is important to many homeowners, and maintaining the curb appeal of your Tampa residence often relies on properly up keeping your landscape.
To give your yard the best care, it is important to hire the right tree company to look after your plants’ well-being or remove old stumps. Knowing the right questions to ask will ensure that you hire the best team for whatever job your property requires.
WHAT ARE THE COMPANY’S CREDENTIALS?
Hiring professionals who don’t have the proper training can result in unnecessary damage, so before hiring a tree company to work on your Tampa property, make sure it is fully licensed and insured. If it isn’t insured, you can become liable for any damage or injuries that take place on your property, which is a risk you don’t want to take. Checking to see that a business has liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance can save you from a lawsuit should anything unexpected occur.
Another credential to look for is whether a trained arborist is on staff. Certified arborists are knowledgeable and experienced in tree care and can provide the best recommendations for your yard.
WHAT ARE THE COMPANY’S SAFETY PROCEDURES?
Knowing the safety measures the tree company follows is important and is your right as a customer. Although a company may have insurance and be willing to accept any liabilities, you don’t want any damage or injuries to occur on your Tampa property.
Some of the basic procedures to look for are wearing safety goggles, harnesses, and helmets on the job. Asking if the business follows Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines is also important to knowing the standards of safety protocol that is being followed.
WHAT SERVICES DO THEY OFFER?
Services will vary from place to place, as will pricing. Before you hire anyone, make sure you know what equipment can be accessed, what services are offered, and what is included in the price you’re paying.
If the tree company you hired does not have access to a crane, it cannot work above a certain height, and if it doesn’t have access to a grinder, it may not be able to effectively perform stump removals. As a customer, you know that not everyone has the resources to dispose of discarded leaves and branches, so before you hire anyone, make sure cleanup will be included in the service.
