KNOW HOW TO SELECT A LEGITIMATE TREE REMOVAL SERVICE
With the recent winter storms toppling trees and breaking branches, tree removal services will be high demand. While many companies are legitimate, some unscrupulous people may see the need for these services as a way take advantage of homeowners. Greensboro police want to prevent you from being victimized, and offer these tips to help you select a legitimate tree removal service.
First, avoid doing business with door-to-door contractors, if possible. Natural disasters are prime opportunities for scam artists. Door to door contractors are often con artists that prey on homeowners, particularly senior citizens. Unfortunately, an emergency is the one instance where hiring a door-to-door contractor is necessary. But even in this situation, you need to take precautions.
Second, NEVER pay for tree removal project up front. Pay only when the work is complete and you are satisfied with service. There are countless instances of people paying for a tree service project up front, only to never hear from the company again.
Choose a business you have researched – and has good reputation. A legitimate company will have a business license. Anyone can put a chainsaw in the back of a pickup truck – but tree removal can be dangerous. To do this work properly requires skill, training, and the proper safety equipment. Check with friends who’ve had tree work done recently to see who they would recommend. The tree service should also be in good standing with Better Business Bureau.
Get an estimate for the work in writing. A legitimate company will always put their offer in writing. Don’t take someone’s word on it. Make sure the estimate details all work you expect to have done by the service - hauling away the debris, and grinding the stump for example.
Find out a fair price. Be skeptical of any price that seems unusually high or low. To find out the going rate for tree removal, get written estimates from more than one company. Don’t get pressured into committing to the service. If an offer is only good “now or never,” find another company to do the job. If the tree isn’t blocking your driveway or on your house, you have time to shop around for a good company with a fair price.
Lastly, make sure the company has insurance. You could be liable if a workman gets injured or property is damaged. Ask to see a copy of the company’s insurance.
