Always Hire A Professional Tree Service
Although of course we recommend ourselves to cater to your tree care needs, we understand that you have many options and factors to consider. We’d like to provide with some basic buying tips when you are making a decision.
Be wary of anyone who is not a full-time, professional tree climber.
There are a large number of jack-of-all-trade type contractors that are happy to take your business. But climbing and cutting down trees is dangerous work that can easily go awry. Tree removal should be performed by someone well versed in tree cutting and culling techniques. What you may save up front may cost you in damage to your yard, home, and sanity.
Check for online reviews
This is an easy one. Any established tree service should have a numerous amount of reviews across the web. And those reviews should be good. While it is hard to make everyone happy, every company should try. And their reviews should reflect that. This makes it hard for the new tree services to come up. But it is a hardship all of us have had to go through.
When getting a price, if it sounds almost too good to be true, it very well could be.
We have helped many people in the South Hampton Roads area who have had the misfortune of placing their trust in the wrong vendor. Occasionally a tree service will grossly undercut the competition by mistake. And then, if that service is unable to afford their mistake, they try to make the customer pay for it. In these cases the tree work is only partially completed when the vendor demands full payment. Once the money is given, the tree service disappears. It’s no fun seeing these situations and it gives us all a bad name. While it is always tempting to go with the lowest price. Always do your due diligence on the history, legitimacy, and background of the company. And never provide payment until the job is 100% complete.
We certainly hope you to at least have a free consultation with The Whole 9 Tree Service when selecting your vendor. But more than that we want our neighbors to be treated fairly and honestly. Please follow these guidelines when selecting your tree service.
