Be aware of rogue traders

It’s a question, when answered wrongly, could cost thousands in putting it right!
Which tradesmen to choose and trust
If you are in need of a job to be done at home whether its a leaking sink pipe to a large tree removal, or even a loft conversion, how to choose the right honest, reputable tradesperson who will make a decent job at a reasonable cost?
Many people rely on word of mouth and intuition.
Unfortunately rogue traders, within the home improvements industry, have seen it relatively easy to take advantage of vulnerable people. Tree surgery has unfortunately seen its fair share of deceitful doorstep callers and homeowners should be on high alert when receiving spontaneous visits from odd job individuals offering to 'chopped down trees'.
Here at Prince Tree Surgery, Essex's leading tree surgeons based in Brentwood, we are disheartened by the degree to which the tree work and gardening section is targeted. The quantity of rogue wrongdoers is on the up in light of the fact that not like other trades there is generally little equipment required and what is required can be reasonable in price.
Likewise with most scam artists, gardening scam artists will do whatever they can to get what they need without doing much work at all. The art for any homeowner is to figure out how to spot a con artist and avoid them before they manage to con you. Tree surgery con artists tend to focus on the elderly, single ladies at home and homes that they think can afford to hand over cash to have a ‘dangerous’ tree chopped down or general tidying work done.
