If you’ve decided you’re going to pay someone to cut your grass, the next question you must ask is: how are you going to choose the right lawn care company? This can be tricky because the lawn care industry is vast. There’s a large amount of variance between different lawn care companies. There will be superb companies, and there will be terrible ones. How do you determine how to get the best company? There are some tips you can use to find yourself the best lawn care company available.
In the modern-day, we have the power to review companies over the internet. By reading reviews from past clients, you can get an idea of how well a lawn care company has served people before. If a company has bad reviews, you’ll want to avoid them. Companies with better reviews will be the ones you want to recruit for your yard.
You can also ask neighbors about various companies they’ve tried to get additional insight. This is a great method for avoiding undesirable companies that your neighbors recommend against.
Are They Licensed And Insured?
Being licensed and insured is crucial. However, it isn’t standard. There are plenty of under-the-table lawn care companies. These groups are just looking to make a quick buck, and may not have the same expertise as trained professionals. A professional lawn care company with license and insurance has dedicated its life to being the best they can be at their job.
A greater concern with enlisting unlicensed/uninsured help is that if they get injured on your property, you’re probably going to be liable. Also, if your property gets damaged, their insurance won’t cover any damage. It’s just safer to go with a licensed and insured lawn care company.
How Is Their Customer Service?
It can be hard finding quality customer service these days. Getting a quote is tough. Signing up can be a real hassle. Getting specialty jobs done is even more difficult. There are a lot of disorganized companies, and you don’t want to be bothered with that chaos.
You want to find a lawn care company with management that is always available and responsive to your needs. If you’re putting your money towards a long-term relationship with a lawn care company, competent, friendly customer service will help save you plenty of time and stress in the long run.
How Is Their Equipment Maintained?
A good way to weed out the low-quality lawn care companies is to ask questions about how they handle their equipment. Under-the-table companies won’t be able to give a definite answer. On the other hand, a competent lawn care company will be able to tell you everything they do to keep their equipment in peak condition. Professionals know the difference between well-cut and poorly-cut grass.
A good question to ask a lawn care company is how many mowing hours they complete before they change or sharpen their blades. If it’s a reputable company, they’ll tell you 10 hours at most.
