Low Balled? Low Quality: 4 Reasons the Lowest Estimate Might Not Be the Best Deal

Ever heard the phrase “More money, more problems”? Yeah, we thought so. But how about “Less money, more problems”? Hmm … not as common. Yet just as true, especially when it comes to bids for tree care on your residential or commercial property.

Quite frankly, when you get a bid that seems too good to be true, it almost always is. There are several reasons a tree removal company may low-ball you, but take our word for it: None of them are good. Here are four of the most common.

1. The Company Is Just Starting

Many companies just starting out figure they’ll have an easier time picking up work if they charge less. And maybe they will, but do you really want a newbie removing the limb that hangs over your living room? Probably not.

2. They Won’t Back Their Work

When a company bids low, it usually means they plan to make up for it in volume. Unfortunately, that kind of ethic often means they don’t have time to come back to your home and fix any problems or care for trees that need help after the job they did. You’ll find you have a very hard time getting a company like this to clean up their mess … which, let’s face it, is really your mess.

3. They Don’t Have Insurance

Some companies don’t do the right thing. Hiring a company without insurance might be cheaper … until a tree branch falls on your shed. Don’t let that happen to you.

4. They’re Just a Pine in the Rear

Here at Premier Tree, we like to say we take care of the pine in your rear. Sadly, though, some companies just are a pine in the rear. You can feel pretty safe in assuming that any company with a low bid falls into this category. Honest, effective, efficient companies charge what they’re worth, so look for a middle-of-the-road bid that you can afford, but that doesn’t signal more problems in future.
