How to save on tree removal Melbourne
Securing cheap tree in Melbourne can be tough. It’s a large metropolitan, city so the cost of living for everyone including a tree companies overheads are high.
But we do have a few tricks or hacks that will help you seek out the best priced local companies.
Why are some company's prices 250% higher?
Understanding the market and why companies charge what they do is going to save you a hundreds.
Most tree services in Melbourne are small business. And like all small businesses (especially trades) they have busy periods and slow periods. When a small business has too much work on, then begin to charge more because they really don’t “need” the work and are not too fussed if you choose them or not.
On the flip side, when they do not have a lot of work on, like in winter, they tend to charge cheaper prices to keep the work coming in. It might seem short sighted, but that’s just the nature of tree work.
So how do you get a tree company that is handing out cheap prices now? Read on the find out.
How to save up to 43% on tree removal Melbourne
You may have already started getting prices for tree removal Melbourne, and noticed that some companies charge a lot more than others.
There are a number of other factors that contribute to price of tree lopping other than just their workload. If you can combine a few of them and use them to your advantage, you really will save hundreds.
Mainly it is because there is no ‘standard tree removal’ job. It’s not like installing a power point or changing a tap washer.
Every tree is different. Its size, location, access etc. all add to the cost of removal and it’s up to interpretation by the quoting company how easy/ hard cheap/expensive it is going to be to remove.
Tree services price by workload not by the hour
A majority of the companies are small – medium sized business. As such they will price a job based on demand.
If they are busy and booked out for 3 – 4 weeks in advanced, they will generally price the job a little higher as they are not exactly desperate for work.
But when work cools off, so do their prices.
So it’s all about catching companies at different stages of their work cycle or busy periods.

The off season is always cheaper
In Australia from about September to April, people are out in their gardens and most job quote requests come through during those months.
It’s the peak season.
Outside those months you will find most tree companies will have less demand, so will be more likely to charge less to land work as to keep busy in the off season.
Waiting until winter to remove your tree can save you hundreds.
Big spending companies who overpay on marketing
Small business owners can make a good living removing trees in Melbourne, but not all of them have the same idea on how to get the right balance between money out and money in.
When it comes to marketing spend some think more is less and spend a fortune to be on the top of Google results, yellow pages, true local etc. But that outlay needs to be recouped by charging higher prices.
As they get from phone calls being at the top, they know they will get less jobs out of it, but the ones they do get will give a far better ROI.
Hint: You don’t want to be paying for a tree companies marketing.

Not so fast.
