When selecting a lawn care company, don't forget to...
You did it! You found a lawn maintenance company that has great reviews, they actually answer their phone, they showed up on time to look at your property and they gave you an estimate. Yes, all is right in the world...
Or is it...?
It's time to take a quick look at something that most customers forget to look at -- insurance. Insurance is one of the most important considerations when it comes to hiring a lawn maintenance company. And if you hire a company without it, you are placing yourself and your assets at risk.
If damages or injuries occur while an uninsured lawn care provider works on your property and they are unwilling to face the consequences of injuries or damages, you will be left high and dry.
Also, any lawn care provider who does not have worker's compensation leaves you responsible for worker injuries suffered while on the job. If an uninsured provider's employee gets seriously injured on your property, you will be most likely named as a defendant in a lawsuit and unfortunately, most homeowner insurance policies will not cover claims filed as a result of an uninsured contractor working on your property.
When a lawn care company is fully insured, it means that they have multiple types of quality insurance coverages to protect against any accident that might occur on the job site.
If you are in need of lawn mowing services, don't ever take the risk of hiring a contractor that isn't fully bonded or insured.
The rates of uninsured lawn care providers may be cheaper than those who carry insurance. But in the end, the few bucks of discount you see in their lawn care rates may cost you the home and assets that you have worked so hard to acquire.
So, before hiring a lawn care company, don't forget to check for insurance. Don’t be a victim; be protected, not surprised!
