Supporting local businesses is a mantra these days and there are many good reasons to do so. By hiring a local company, you are keeping your money in the local area benefiting employees and their families and potentially creating more jobs in your community and surrounding areas. While there are likely many options in your area for lawn care companies, you’re going to want to find the one that will give you the best customer service, provide all the treatments you want or need for your lawn and have licensed, trained, professional applicators.
Finding and hiring a lawn care company can seem like a daunting task with all the competition out there. One of the simplest ways to check out a local lawn care company is by going to their website. On their site you can find what other services they offer like pest control or tree and shrub programs, the history of the company, key personnel and most importantly, customer reviews and ratings. You can likely request a free quote and there may be special offers for signing up. See what kind of lawn care tips or blog they offer.
Social media is a major player in our lives and businesses are no different. Facebook posts are a great way for a company to keep its clients up to date on the latest insect or disease problem, weather related issues or other pertinent updates. Customers can also leave reviews on the page and you can see how the company responds to customer complaints and compliments. Other users can also like or comment on these posts. Again, seeing how this local lawn care company responds to reviews and comments will tell you a lot about their customer service philosophy.
Google reviews can be written by anyone once they have searched and found a business name. You can read all the reviews and see how the company responds to comments, both good and bad. This will give you a good indication of how a given company treats their customers. You can sort the reviews through various filters to find the ones that best answer your questions.
Making The Choice
Once you find a few local lawn care companies that look promising to you, get quotes over the phone. Find out exactly what is included in each visit. Some local lawn care companies may offer a discount on the first treatment and then the remaining treatments are at a higher rate. Be sure to get a confirmation of the lawn care services your ordered and don’t be afraid to ask questions. It is your lawn and your money so do what is best for both.
