How to choose a ground maintenance contractor

Having well-maintained and looked after outside space is essential to any property. For a commercial premises good grounds maintenance is key. This will not only allow you or your staff to enjoy your grounds more, but it will also mean your grounds stay looking tidy. For many businesses looking after their ground care in-house is not an option. This means that hiring a ground maintenance contractor is vital.

But what should you be looking for in any firm you choose?

Certifications & Awards

When you begin to look around, you will see there is a lot of choice. One great tip on choosing the best contractor to use is looking at what certifications they have. Certification from professional bodies, for example, is a sign that they are well-run and competent. Similarly, awards won will also signal a ground maintenance company that delivers a great service. It is also worth making sure the staff they use are fully trained, insured and qualified for the work you need doing.

Look At Their Case Studies

Many companies in this sector will post case studies of current or previous jobs on their website. These are a valuable resource for seeing their service in action along with the results they produce. Viewing case studies is very handy if one is present of the specific service you need help with.

Online Reviews & Testimonials

As well as case studies, try to find some objective feedback from past customers too. This will give you a great insight into what the company in question is really like and if you should use them. Online reviews are the best way to get this information via an internet search. Look for testimonials on the company website too as the presence of happy previous customers is a good sign.

Great Customer Service

Choosing a ground care service should definitely involve looking into how good their customer service is. You need to find a contractor that is polite, knowledgeable and easy to get in touch with. You should also look for one that is quick to respond to any urgent messages and that you feel you can trust. With this in mind, it can sometimes be best employing a larger company rather than a one-man band style contractor. This means that there is always someone around to answer any emergencies or deal with your regular maintenance work.
