It's no secret that first impressions are important if you're running a business. As your potential customers take their first glance at your building, a clean and beautiful property gives your business a sense of authority and professionalism.
If you are a business owner and customers physically show up at your door, your property is the first thing they will see; this could either make or break their first impression of you. We understand that there likely isn't enough time in your day to worry about what your landscape looks like. Hiring a professional team will take this task off of your plate and leave your commercial property looking clean and professional without ever having to lift your finger!
When searching for a company to hire for this project, there are a few questions you should ask first before signing on the dotted line. Are they experienced? Are they insured? Do they have the licenses to do the work they promise you? These things are important to consider before getting wrapped up in a potentially unfortunate situation.
Question One: What is Your Experience with Commercial Grounds Maintenance?
If you are hiring a company to provide maintenance to your large commercial property, you don't want a team showing up only knowing how to take care of residential homes. Sidewalks and parking lots are a lot different than front porches and driveways. Ask each company their experience with commercial properties specifically.
Question Two: Do You Have the Proper Insurance & Licenses?
You could be putting you and your business at risk of legal problems by hiring a company that doesn't have the proper insurance and licenses. You need to be sure that you, your money, your business, and your property are all protected before you sign that dotted line. The last thing you need is an uninsured company crew member getting injured on your property or one of their machines causing unnecessary damage.
Question Three: Do You Have Any Professional Affiliations?
Not all landscape companies have professional affiliations, but the most well-respected businesses will. Professional affiliations offer evidence of the company's authority and professionalism. This could be anything from military involvement, a good rate on the Better Business Bureau, or any type of community involvement such as volunteer work at a non-profit.
Question Four: What Additional Services Do You Provide?
While you may just simply be looking for a company to come in and make your property look nice, it is possible you might need additional services down the road. Hiring a company that can provide additional services to you if needed will make your life easier and limit the amount of research you will need to do when the time comes.
