What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
One, does the company provide liability and workman's compensation insurance to protect you in the event of an accident on the job? Ask for a certificate of insurance from the company's insurance agent. This is very easy thing and routine. If there is delay or if presented with one from them and not the agency then that's a red flag. These policies show a the provider is dedicated and professional and not in it to make a quick buck as they are expensive policies to maintain. Look for membership in a professional organization. A service's membership in one or more professional lawn care associations and active participation in the local community is a positive sign. Professional organizations keep members informed on new developments in pest control methods, safety, training, research and regulation. Most associations have a code of ethics for members to follow. Affiliation with a professional group is one indication that a company strives for quality in its work. How do they maintain their equipment? A good question to weed out low quality lawn care providers: “How often do you sharpen your blades?” This is a frequent disparity between your average DIYer and a lawn care company. A professional can tell the difference between grass cut with a dull and a sharp blade. Dull blades make grass look tattered and brown on top. If you’re mowing your own lawn, you’d generally change your blade once or twice per year. Good lawn care companies usually sharpen or change blades every 1-2 days but this also depends on the volume of work they perform daily. Here’s a quick rule of thumb: ask them how many mowing hours they go through before changing/sharpening blades. The answer should be no more than 10 hours. Ask them for personal references before you sign up. It can be a little awkward, but if they are enthusiastic and have many references you can ask, then that’s a wonderful sign. If they’re reticent, be wary. When you do talk to their references, make sure you get a good amount of information: how long they’ve worked together, quality, reliability, affordability, flexibility, etc. Personal references are one of the best ways to get a reliable judgement of a new lawn care company. Lastly, as the saying goes. You get what you pay for. This is ecspecially true in the lawn care service. It is always instinct to go with the lowest price provider but there's a reason for those prices, As far as the provider's part. And the truth of the matter is eventually there will be problems when you're dealing with someone who will bid half the price that a professional company such as the lawn barbers would, that is usually for example 40 to $50 being the average but they'll do it for $20.00. probably the biggest is because they don't have the expenses of liability insurance nor do they have workers compensation and this is a very big issue something that shouldn't be paid attention to for example what if they are mowing your lawn and smack your air conditioner causing it to go out if they don't have the insurance the licensing and workèrs comp You're the one that's stuck in the wind and end up paying for it which can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars. Many of these types of a problem being punctual honest professional.
