The Better Business Bureau of Northern Indiana reminds those who experience storm damage, like that from Friday's heavy winds that packed a 91-mph gusts, to take certain precautions when hiring a tree service.
*Check with your insurance company about policy coverage.
*Don't be pressured into making an immediate decision. Be wary of door-to-door solicitations.
*Shop around and get three to four estimates.
*Verify with the BBB that businesses are required to be licensed/registered to do work in your area.
*Make sure the tree service you are considering has current liability insurance and workers compensation insurance.
*Require a written contract agreement with anyone you hire.
Beware of those that:
*Have no printed materials, letterhead or bid forms
*Offer an unusually low price – at first.
*Only accept cash payments, and/or ask for payment up front.
*Pressure you for an immediate decision.
