The Cheapest Quote Isn’t Always The Best Quote

Something you should also consider when obtaining tree removal quotes in Sydney is that the cheapest quote isn’t always the best quote. At Rennie Bros Tree Removals we try to be very competitive with our tree quotes, however some other tree companies will cut safety measures and take less care on your property which can result in property damage to, injury to the crew, clients or pedestrians.

We’ve seen many cases where the “dodgy tree loppers” destroy houses & neighbours properties resulting in one very unhappy client who is usually left up clean up the mess. Also get your tree quote in writing and choose your tree removal company wisely. Read reviews and ask your tree expert how they will be removing your tree. Ask yourself do you think they should be using traffic control or an EWP to safely work around the wires etc.

Don’t become a victim!
