Choosing The Right Local Tree Service

You’re probably a homeowner and you’re in need of help, but, finding the right contractor to work with on projects around the home that you love can be a daunting task, figuring out what websites are accurate, who’s giving you the best deal, is the best deal the best service? How much does it all cost?

Estates Tree Service believes in putting our customers first, we want all of our clients to be 100% satisfied so that next time a friend asks ‘Do you know a good Tree Service Near Me?’ our clients will gladly refer us. But part of providing the absolute best customer service is helping your customers make an informed decision, we prefer not to force a sale or pressure you into going with Estates Tree Service, but we know if you call us for a Free Tree Trimming estimate you’ll go with us because of the level of knowledge, care, and effort we put into making sure every single customer we meet is satisfied when we leave their home.

With thousands of Local Tree Service Companies in San Diego choosing the right one can surely be difficult, hopefully, the helpful tips below will guide you when you’re looking for a Tree Cutter Near You.

Tips For Choosing The Best Local Tree Service For You:


Does The Company Provide Free Estimates?

In Today’s age more and more Local Tree Service Companies in San Diego are beginning to charge customers to go out to their homes or businesses in order to provide an estimate. They claim this is just a small fee to make sure you don’t miss the appointment, but that’s not actually the case.

When you take a deeper look into the psychology of the scenario you will find that by asking for a fee upfront the Local Tree Service Company starts out with the upper hand, if you choose to pay them to come to your home to provide an estimate of how much they’re going to turn around and charge you, you’re opening the door for them to charge you more and pressure you into a sale. The reason it becomes easier for them to make the sale is that you’ve already made a commitment and established a relationship with them. This also opens them up to charging you more, they know you don’t want to throw that money away and they try to make their estimate charge seem like a benefit by subtracting it from their fee, but they’ve marked the fee up 20% because they know you want to make sure your money for the estimate doesn’t go to waste.

Simple enough, if a Local Tree Service company asks you to pay them upfront for an Estimate, say No. Then search “Tree Removal Company Near Me” online and find a company that isn’t going to use a high-pressure sales pitch to try to win your business.

Is The Local Tree Serice Company Licensed and Insured?

This is CRITICAL. View Our Tree Service Contractors License.

We truly cannot stress this enough, if your local tree service company is not licensed and insured, DO NOT HIRE THEM.

What many homeowners don’t understand is the tree cutting companies license and their insurance doesn’t just protect them, it protects the consumer from liability and from damage to their home due to a job gone wrong.

Estates Tree Service is proudly Licensed, Insured and BBB A+ Rated, we care about our customers, and we care about being the best local tree service company.

Ensuring your Local Tree Service is licensed and insured can protect you from:

  • Being liable in the event of an accident on the job while on your property. If the company is not licensed and insured and the owner of the company disappears when their employee is hurt, that employee is going to be coming to you for money.
  • Damage to your property. The Local Tree Service company will have insurance to protect your property, if they make a mistake, while it’s a terrible thing, at least you’ll be covered.

Choose a Local Tree Service that won’t nickel and dime you.

All business owners are in business to make money, that part is simple. But the way that some companies choose to tack on extra fees to make more money will make the difference between having satisfied clients all the time and upset clients all the time.

When you call a local tree trimming company for your tree care needs, what are they going to include? What are they going to charge extra for?

When you call Estates Tree Service, we will provide you with a 100% free, no obligation written estimate. This estimate is going to outline EXACTLY what is included in our services, so when we do a tree trimming job our client knows that we are going to chip the debris into mulch, which they can choose to keep or have hauled away. Other companies will break this out and when the job is almost done you’ll get a call telling you that they can chip the debris for another $100.

If you call another local tree service, be sure to ask what they include.

Failure To Provide A Written Estimate For Local Tree Service.

Many companies will provide an estimate for free, many companies are licensed and insured, and many local tree service companies will go above and beyond to ensure their clients are 100% satisfied with the work they receive. But another way that Estates Tree Service stands out from the other “Tree Service Companies Near Me” is that we will provide you a WRITTEN estimate.

Well, why does that matter? Local Tree Service is competitive, we are all looking for homeowners that need help with their trees, and all homeowners are looking for great work at a great price. Some companies do it by the book, and they provide a great service, work off of referrals, Yelp Reviews, and returning customers, while some companies will do whatever they can, no matter how unethical it is to win your business.

Infact, we are no secret to these unethical tactics. Many clients have reported being visited by one of our Ramona Tree Service competitors right after we leave, they’ll come to your home, promise to do a better job for less, and in the end, they under deliver. Now, we are not trying to bad mouth anyone, we are simply trying to help you choose the right local tree service, so when looking for the right service, choose one that is confident enough in their service and pricing to leave you a written estimate. This proves that the company has nothing to hide, they’re not fearful of their competitors underbidding to win the job, because a company that is willing to provide a free written local tree service estimate knows their service is superior.

Final Thoughts on selecting the right local tree service:

Estates Tree Service wants to win your business, and we will always over deliver for less cost. We do not consider a job complete unless our customer is 100% satisfied. So when you search for a “tree trimmer near me” search for a company that meets all of the standards we outlined above.

Some more questions to ask the local tree service company that you contact:

  • Do you have the right equipment for the job? (Estates Tree Service does!)
  • Do your employees go through any training? (Ours Do)
  • Do you service all of San Diego County? Including Poway, Ramona, El Cajon, La Mesa, Del Mar, La Jolla, Rancho Bernardo, Coronado and everywhere in between? (We do!)
  • What happens if we are not satisfied with the work when your done? (We make it right!!)

san diego tree pruning
Tom and company knocked down a big, ugly Jacaranda tree along with trimming some pine branches that were crowding our SDG&E power line. Excellent job and fair price. Especially evident was the clean-up including sweeping the roof which has now never looked so good. Estate Tree Service is highly recommended.

We are so happy with the service!!!!  Not only did they do an excellent job on trimming all of our trees, the bid Tom gave me was the best out of the three places I called. Tom and his crew are experts at what they do. They showed up on time, did a great job on trimming all of the trees and clean up.   I know who to call now next time I need tree service. Thank you so much Estates Tree Service, my yard looks great!
