Questions You Should Ask
Tree stump removal seems like a simple task that anybody with cheap rates can do, but consider these questions:
1. Do they have insurance? If they get hurt on your property while working, you and your insurance could be liable. A stump grinder is a dangerous machine, make sure they have insurance.
2. Do they locate? Anybody respectable will have the area around the tree stump located to insure there are not any utilities to hit. This may take a few extra days but the safety and liability aspect of this is worth the wait.
3. Do they own their own machine? A lot of people don’t even own their own machine. They line up a few jobs and then rent a unit for a day. The problem with this is if they miss something or don’t do the job right, good luck calling them to return and finish the job.
