At Any Height Tree Services, we understand that our clients require information about us before making a decision. Get informed on what questions to ask during the hiring process by reading our helpful article. Our qualified tree experts are prepared to answer any questions you may have.
1. What does your company specialize in?
Before hiring a professional tree company, it is important to do your research about the specific services they provide. Sometimes certain companies do not offer the specialized services you might require. It is important for you to confirm the services you need with the provider of your choice before you sign any agreement. We specialize in getting the work done fast and efficiently.
2. What type of equipment will be needed to perform the work?
Depending on your requirements, the equipment needed will vary, and not all companies have the major required equipment. It would be wise for you to figure out the equipment a company has or can hire before you decide to narrow down on one.
3. Do you have property damage insurance?
Some services, such as tree removal and storm tree removal, can be risky for even the most qualified tree experts. As a result, it is very important to verify that the tree service company in question is licensed for your state and insured and that these documents are current. We are licensed, insured, and experienced in providing high-quality services.
4. Are your employees protected by WSIB?
Employers who operate in Ontario generally require WSIB coverage for their workers. WSIB coverage provides employers with legal protection if a workplace injury occurs and provides injured workers with a variety of benefits and services. The employers we hire are protected by WSIB.
5. How fast can you get the work done?
The answer should depend on the complexity of the job. Any company that promises a speedy removal before understanding the work to be done is trying to sell you something. We make sure to get your work done in a timely manner while also ensuring that we take the time and effort to do a great job.
6. Do I need a permit?
Based on where you are situated and the type of tree, you are probably going to require a permit to make any permanent changes to it. A licensed tree expert is required to be well-trained and experienced in how to care for trees, how to trim or remove trees, how to recognize hazardous trees, and how to plant trees, all in such a way as to be safe and follow laws.
7. How long have you been in the industry?
Tree care and service are not just something you master overnight. It takes many years of experience in the industry and much training to get the hang of it truly. Our team of specialists have the very best techniques to groom all sorts of trees and shrubs on both residential and commercial properties. They’ll always be able to assess what action is in the best interest of your tree and whether it can be saved with some trimming or whether it needs to be removed for the sake of the rest of your yard.
