I submitted an online quote request to have two 70-foot Siberian Elm trees removed from my residential property in Ypsilanti Township, along with the stumps ground and debris removed. Within minutes of issuing my request, I was contacted by J & J’s Co-owner John who said he’d be out very soon to give me an estimate. By that time, I’d been contacted by several other contractors.
The following morning as I was getting into the sauna, I saw John and his partner/brother-in-law, Josh, mulling around in my front yard. As I got out of the shower, I saw I had a text from an unknown caller. It was John texting already to give me my quote.
Even before I’d gotten all of my bids for the job, I was highly impressed by John’s and Josh’s quickness in getting me a bid, as they knew I was in a hurry to get these trees removed before they both leafed out too much. They also posed a grave safety risk to others below with several hanging limbs. Additionally, I was concerned about the season ticking down and having no contractors available, as well.
Once I’d had a chance to talk to John directly, we spoke about my specific needs and how J & J could accommodate. I was quite impressed with both his knowledge of the industry and the utmost professionalism he displayed in our brief but informative initial communications.
After getting five quotes for the job, and following painstaking deliberation, I am very happy to say I chose J & J Tree Trimming, LLC to do the work. I remained open-minded during the bidding process, but overall, J & J came back with the best proposal, both in terms of the services they offered as well as their phenomenal price. It simply could not be beat!
And, to put it in perspective, the two Ann Arbor contractors quoted me twice as much and twice plus $600. In the end, there really was no competition. These guys run a family business and have the crew, the gear and the expertise to service any customer’s tree service needs, for a heck of a fair price!
Just over two weeks after I set my appointment date, the crew arrived at my house at 8 am, right on time, and they finished just after lunch—a half day’s job, as expected! Other bidders wanted two days or more to complete the work, which was simply not an ideal scenario for me. John was great to deal with, from start to finish. So professional, friendly and with a great sense of humor.
I could not have asked for a better tree removal experience, all the way around! Not only were their crew of four equipped with the latest machines and technology, but they knew how to use them. They all worked tirelessly, efficiently and interacted with each other so harmoniously, it was like watching a well orchestrated symphony play out in my front yard—quite a sight to behold, indeed!
Finally, in the short year and a half I’ve been remodeling my home, I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly sides of local remodeling contractors. Let me just say, the guys at J & J are straight shooters who provide exceptional tree service at extremely fair prices, and they service a wide area of Southern Michigan and NW Ohio.
I’d love to see this company thrive well into the century, for the simple reason that they’re good people who stand behind their service, which they offer at very affordable prices. They are highly skilled, conscientious and efficient, and the end results show just that. I’d recently planted over a dozen shrubs and trees in the front yard, which surrounded the two trees they removed. And, not even a leaf of those new trees was damaged. Amazing!!!
Check out the competition if you must, but if you’re like me, you’ll see the outstanding value in their work in no time. Give J & J Tree Trimming, LLC a chance to make you a very happy homeowner by giving you the peace of mind you are looking for.
Thanks again, guys!
