If you have a large property that needs to be cleared, you’re going to need to hire a contractor with all the training and equipment necessary to get the job done safely. This is, after all, a very large project that requires considerable experience.
If you’ve never hired land clearing companies in Stanly County, NC before, you might be wondering how to go about the process. There are going to be lots of choices for contractors in your area, so it’s important to know what questions you should ask in order to narrow down your selection.
Here are a few examples of things you should ask when hiring a land clearing service.
What do you do to ensure the safety of a job site?
It’s important to know the kinds of safety precautions a contractor will take in a given job. Land clearing involves the use of multiple pieces of very heavy machinery, so you need to be aware of all the safety protocols used when they are in operation. This is not just to ensure your safety, but also for the safety of workers, neighbors and anyone else near your land.
You should make sure that all workers have protective gear and hard hats, and that they have all been properly trained before operating heavy machinery.
Can you provide me with some references?
A land clearing contractor should have references they can give you for their work. If they do not have any satisfied clients willing to speak on their behalf, that should obviously be a warning sign. You should also be able to go online and find customer reviews about the company’s services. You can look on Google’s business reviews, or go on sites like Yelp or Angie’s List to see what previous customers have to say. If the company has a social media presence, that’s another good place to look.
Will you have subcontractors working for you?
Many contractors also have subcontractors for large land clearing jobs. If this is the case, you need to make sure you’re always aware of who is doing what on your land and that you have documentation of all of this information. You should also get references and background information for those subcontractors to be sure you want them working on your project.
How much do you charge for your services?
You shouldn’t automatically go with the cheapest option when seeking a land clearing service, but it certainly helps to have a variety of estimates to weigh into your decision making process. All services should fit within your budget for the job. What you should be looking for is not necessarily the lowest price for your job, but the best value taking into account all the other considerations here.
These are just a few considerations to keep in mind as you prepare to begin the process of hiring land clearing companies in Stanly County, NC. For more information about the services we provide, contact the team at Thompson Grading & Hauling, Inc. today.
