Tree Service Tampa – How to save 43%
Cheap tree services in Tampa might sound like a myth as the cost of tree removal or trimming seem to be on a steep rise in most cities across the US.
But I’m here to show you how you can save a tonne of money.
When to hire
If you can wait, try to hire in the cooler months November through to March. Why? Because this is the off season for the tree service industry. There are less people in their yards and less work going around in general.
Like most small businesses, arborists charge depending on how much work they have on. If they are busy, they will generally increase prices so they don’t become overwhelmed with work. If they have a quiet patch, they will drop prices to try and win more work.
As there is the same supply in winter, but less demand, you will save a minimum of 20% just getting quotes in the off season.
Some companies even advertise discounts for winter just to make sure they are covered in the leaner months.
Location, location, location!
The location or position for your tree on your property can make a HUGE difference to the price you pay.
It’s all about time vs. money for tree services (or any small business owner for that matter). The quicker they can get your tree on the ground and in the back of the truck, the cheaper the job is going to be, period.
So if you have a tree in the front yard 2 meters from the street and it cost $1000 for removal, then same tree in your backyard on a hill with poor access is going to cost you twice as much.
Always do your best to give the contractor as good access as possible. Sometimes the best way to the tree is through your neighbour’s yard which might even mean removing a section of your dividing fence.
Be sure to weigh up the best option for access as it can save you hundreds.
Sell the timber as firewood
With the above example, they hardest part will be hauling the timber to the truck by hand as there is poor access for equipment.
Try asking for a quote to remove the tree completely and another quote to leave all the timber cut into 1 foot logs. In most cases there is going to be a saving in leaving the logs. In some cases you are going to save a packet!
The kicker is you can then post an ad on eBay selling the timber for firewood. The buyer will come around and do all the heavy lifting and pay you for the wood.
Not only are you saving on the tree removal service cost, but you are profiting on the waste!
