Choosing The Right Surveying Company for Your Project Needs

When it comes to choosing the right land surveying company for your commercial real estate needs there is arguably nothing more important to get you the results you are looking for than choosing a company that can deliver to your expectations.  Hiring a firm that does not have the expertise in your area of need or a firm that cannot deliver on time can cost you time and money both now and potentially down the road.

The land surveyor industry is made up mainly of smaller one or two-man businesses that have a focus or specialty in one area of surveying which is typically residential lot surveying.  These companies are typically working with out-of-date surveying equipment and software that in conjunction with their minimal knowledge of commercial and industrial surveying can lead to a subpar survey result. 

Firms such as these are also mainly transactional based and do not have the time or manpower to develop longer term relationship-based clientele.  This is a huge disadvantage to you, the client, because developing a relationship with an established and reputable and experienced surveying company can pay off in the long-term for your firm as they can learn what is important to you and how to deliver the results you are looking for in a survey.

Questions to ask when hiring a commercial land surveyor:

  • Does your firms carry insurance (professional liability or business insurance). 
  • If not, this can leave you unprotected?
  • Does your firm use the latest surveying equipment and software?
  • Can you handle a project my size?
  • When is the earliest you can delivery the survey and/or can you perform off of our schedule?
