So, how do you choose a tree service when there are so many in the Austin, TX area?
- The LOCATION of the tree. If it's near the street or driveway, a bucket truck or
crane could probably access it. But, if it's in the backyard or somewhere a bucket
truck can't reach, call Talley Tree Service for a bid.
- The SIZE of the tree to be removed. If it's greater than 18" diameter (across future
stump) at knee height, it's a "large" job. Give us a Call!
- INSURANCE. Protect yourself financially! Does bidder have Tree Service Liability
insurance? Ask for a Certificate of Insurance. Don't hesitate to call the agent to
verify that the policy is still in force! Hiring uninsured or underinsured contractors
may result in significant liability for you, the property owner. Isn't peace of mind
worth paying a little extra for?
- Did you meet, or at least talk with, the OWNER of the tree service? (Did you even
find out his name? See his picture? Get his home address? Is he a long-term Austin
area resident?) What was your impression? Did you see the employees? Would you be
comfortable having them on your property, around your children, pets and outdoor
possessions, or letting them into your house?
- LOCALITY of the tree service itself: to find the ones closest to your home and zip
code, go to www.yahoo.com or www.google.com. In the search field, type "tree service
786##", then hit Enter. This one step could save an hour over using the Yellow Pages
phone book because you'd be overwhelmed with choices.
- Parking and ability to turn around. Do you have a long winding driveway, live on
a cul-de-sac, dead end or narrow street, have "No Parking" signs, a fire hydrant
or street repairs going on in front of your house? If a large truck towing a chipper
couldn't park there or couldn't turn around to get back out of your driveway or street,
call Talley Tree Service.
- Better Business Bureau. Check to see if there have been any complaints and, if so,
how they were resolved. "Before you invest, investigate."
- The written ESTIMATE - is it specifically and clearly worded, or is it rather vague
with room for interpretation, error and disagreement? Remember, it's a legal document
you will be signing and it should be written with care and professionalism.
- Another way to SAVE MONEY is to have your work done between November and early March.
This is the slow season for most tree services, and you may get a better price then.
- PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE - Have wind and/or hail storms left you without power, phone
or cable? From the pole to the house, it's YOUR responsibility to have branches cleared
from the utility lines. The cost of 1 or 2 nights in a hotel might easily pay for
this. It only takes 1 fallen branch to knock out your power, leaving you sweltering
or freezing at night, and ruining all your frozen & refrigerated food.
- CUSTOMER SATISFACTION - I never ask you for a dime until you're happy with my work.
Many letters of reference available. Expect thorough cleanup. Don't pay the other
guys in advance! Too often they'll stop before the work is finished! (Especially
the ones who knock on your door and/or emphasize low prices.)
- BUYING DECISION. Beware of any price that seems too low. (If they knocked on your
door soliciting business, they may be out-of-towners staying in a motel. Look at
the area code in the tree service's phone number - on their business cards and on
their trucks.) Is their voice mail always full? How long have they been in business
in the Austin are? Do they voluntarily provide local letters of reference? Did you
meet a real live person, or did they mail your estimate to you? Do all of their vehicles
have company names proudly and boldly displayed on them? ASK for a CERTIFICATE OF
INSURANCE! Get a price that's in the ballpark with the rest of the bids, then consider
the items above. Talley Tree Service is often NOT the lowest bidder, but still gets
the work. The estimate is always free, so why not take advantage of it? Call (512)
