Back to those concerns. There are many concerns to consider when choosing your wildfire demolition partner in Applegate.
- Is the company adept at performing complete and partial demolition services
- Has the wildfire demolition company been offering these services in earnest long before the event, or are they simply trying to capitalize on the misfortunes of others?
- Does the demolition and fire debris removal company have the necessary equipment or access to the necessary equipment in the Applegate area? Not only that, but do they have enough of the right equipment to meet the current demand of wildfire demolition and debris removal clients they currently have signed on?
- Will they continue to sign on clients after you sign your wildfire demolition contract, and if so, what is their position on your project in terms of equipment placed on property, and timing. Simply put, will they get in and handle your demolition once started without leaving and shuffling key equipment like excavators, dump trucks and dozers from job to job and back again. You need to make sure you don’t hire a company that will merely collect deposits from your insurance company or yourself and put you through the revolving door of on and off again work schedules.
- Does the fire damage demolition company you choose for your Applegate property have the necessary staff to handle the workload at not only your property but all of the properties they are currently contracted to perform demolition and fire debris cleanup at?
- Wildfire demolition companies, or companies performing wildfire damage demolition and fire debris removal services in and around Applegate need to carry liability insurance, make sure you obtain up to date copies of their liability insurance with enough to coverage to protect you.

You may say to yourself that you have insurance to cover that, but the impact to your rating and policy costs, already set to increase from the wildfire damage, doesn’t increase even further.
- All wildfire demolition companies serving Applegate and the entire State of California need to maintain workers comp insurance. Make sure their insurance is in full force for any employees they have on payroll. Sub-contracted workers are the responsibility of the sub-contractors, but you should at least obtain something in writing that the demolition company does it’s due diligence, to the best of it’s ability, to verify their sub-contractors note they have all the necessary insurances, ultimately you will rely on your contracted wildfire demolition and fire debris companies policy to back off your risk.
- Can the demolition company get to your project in a timely fashion so that you can get your life in Applegate back in order? Or is there a long wait list.
