If you plan to launch tree moving services, we are going to share a useful guide that helps you get started in this business and get a few contracts in the beginning.
Focus on high-value services
If you want to achieve success in the tree moving, your company should specialize in high-value works. If you are ready to pay handsome salary packages, you can easily find an experienced crew for your firm. If your company is limited to the trimming and the fertilization of the trees, you are not going to make good money. Focus more on the emergency care of trees, root removal and the tree removal. Keep in mind that you need expensive machinery as well when offering high-end services in the landscaping business. You should start from the area where no strong competitor is already active. However, this does not mean that you offer high-end services only; you need crew for the fertilization and the trimming projects; such projects are available on day to day basis while high-end services are not needed on a regular basis. These small services like trimming and fertilization would help your company get a stable income, but the real profits are always in the high-end services. Your company must have a specialty, and if you are providing all the general services, you won’t get the needed recognition in the market.
Protect your assets
The work in the landscaping business is quite risky; therefore, you should consider the risks and protect all your assets. All the equipment of the company should be insured, and the crew should be properly trained for such projects. Insurance of the machinery gives you peace of mind, and you can get started again in case of any emergency during the project. The traditional landscaping industry is now changing, and if your company specializes in any tree care service, it needs modern machinery, which is very expensive. The customer is also aware of the risks and would not hire companies that don’t cover their assets. The root structure of the trees often threatens the homes as well. Therefore, your company needs to be extra careful and ensure that the property does not get any harm during the project. Due to these risks, customers may not even consider you if your company does not have licenses, certifications or the insurance for the work. Therefore, consider all these things before you plan to enter this industry.
