Thinking of a tree removal task will definitely lead you to several questions. For example; who are the right agents to contact? Where are they based? This and other several questions should be expected especially if you are carrying out the task for the very fast time.
With numerous risks lying beside the tree removal task, you need to take your time and consider the most appropriate answers to those questions. The fact that the tree needs to be removed really fast doesn’t mean you pick anybody to do the job. Think of the following factors as one way to help you determine who is to be contacted first.
Critically Think Of The Dangerous Surrounding The Tree
See if there are live electrical wires, permanent structures and water pipes nearby the tree. If in case they exist, don’t just carry out the task, experts and professionals are the best people here. Don’t dare think of going by the shorter route of contacting family members and friends to do the job to cut the expense by some reasonable amounts! You never know what may happen next.
Legality Of The Company
Everyone wants to make money. It goes without saying. Unfortunately, others want to do it the illegal way. They will buy a handsaw and chainsaw and begin declaring themselves s professionals. They will always use the word of mouth to convince you.
This is not where you nod in agreement with each word! Alright, after taking some reasonable time to listen, ask for the written documents proving they are experts and professionals authorized by the government to carry out the task.
Here are some of the documents you need to have a look at Before You Hand Over The Role To Them.
- A Valid Business License
This is the first thing you should seek to see. Two things are necessary here, though. Check the validity of the documents. Make sure the document has not expired. Again, confirm if the document is sealed and /or sealed with by the government staffs. Be careful on this too, some agents will use technology to forge government documents.
- Fully Insured
Once sure the agents or company has a valid license, move on and ask for a written document proving full insurance. This is really important and should not be ignored at any cost. Why? Wait until a staff has been injured or even your house or that of your neighbor. That’s when you realize it is dangerous.
You will be held liable for the damage, death or harm done by the tree you requested to be removed. This is not the case if the personnel and your house are fully insured. Once insured, nobody will hold you accountable for any death or damage that may result during tree removal.
- Tree removal is not only a dangerous task but life-threatening task. This, therefore, calls for good preparedness before starting the job. How do you know the staffs are ready for the job?
Depending on the task each staff is assigned in carrying out tree removal, they should have the following;
- Protective eyeglasses

Formalized Mode Of Payment
Remember you are dealing with a company or an agent. Have everything done in writing. People can come up with stories to prove how they opt to be paid a higher amount than agreed after the job is all done. Stay safe by avoiding such cases by asking for an estimated or exact amount form the company.
Reputation Of The Company
This is one thing you should not forget. Take your time and go through the reviews left behind be the clients who have had a privilege of receiving the company’s services, be dear to yourself and go through as many as you can. This will help you to know the company you are about to give the job. If in case there are several comments alarming you. Don’t hesitate to change your mind on them.
