Mistakes When Hiring A Tree Service

Things To Avoid When Hiring A Tree Service

We get it — everyone has to start somewhere in their line of work. But when it comes to tree care, you want someone who has been in the industry and has some serious veterans. Many homeowners don’t realize the level of damage that someone with minimal experience can do to a tree. Hire tree trimming Oregon services that can fulfill your every need.

This is where the team at Dr. Trees Oregon City comes into play. With over 40 years of industry experience, it’s safe to say we know tree care inside and out. Don’t let someone trick you into thinking they’re legitimate just because they might have a truck with what looks to be reliable equipment — ask about their experience and then verify what they say with an online search.

Hiring A Company Without Proper Insurance/Permits

It’s one thing for a tree service to claim they’re backed by years of experience. It’s something entirely different, however, for them to be properly insured and licensed. This is important because if something goes off the rails when the workers are on your property and the company does not have the necessary certifications, you’re going to be met with a world of headache.

Why risk having to be financially responsible for the actions of an untrusted tree service? At Dr. Trees Oregon City, we make it a point to tell customers that we are fully licensed, insured, and bonded to perform all the services you can see on our website.

Don’t Overlook The Importance Of References

Let’s say you found a local tree service that has seemingly been around forever and maintains the proper licensing and insurance. You should go ahead and hire them immediately, right? Not so fast, as you will want to see what previous customers have to say about their work.

Here at Dr. Trees Oregon City, we suggest requesting references from each of the companies on your shortlist. While it may be unrealistic to expect five-star reviews from every single customer, you obviously don’t want to move forward with a tree service that has a trend of less-than-stellar reviews. We at Dr. Trees Oregon City would be happy to provide references upon request.

Avoid Unreliable Estimates

This is a big one. We’ve come to realize over the years that homeowners are often intimidated by tree care in general. That said, when they come across what seems like a reliable tree service, they hire them without getting estimates from anyone else.

Do yourself a favor and talk with other companies about your tree removal or tree trimming project before making a decision on who to hire. Granted, you should probably steer clear of tree services that provide an estimate that seems too good to be true. Tree care companies that charge significantly less than their competition up front may end up tricking customers with hidden fees and gimmicks in the end.

Hiring A Specialized Service

We’re guessing you don’t want to hire one company to handle tree removal and a second company to trim several other trees.
