Why Hire ShadowCat?

Hiring a forestry mulching or land clearing professional can be frustrating since the project and budget concerns may become overwhelming.  Throw in the chance at hiring someone who is just renting equipment and doesn't know how to achieve the results you want, and the process just becomes a nightmare and overly expensive!


Let David and Sherri at ShadowCat walk you through the process from your initial thoughts on what you properties you are looking at purchasing all the way to actually clearing the land.  We will answer your questions free of charge with no obligation... this is what we love to do!

Some of the reasons to hire ShadowCat

- A legitimate company, not a fly-by-night fake company - ShadowCat Services, Inc is registered with the State of Florida (sunbiz.org) and holds a business license in Volusia County where we are based.  Not all "businesses" are registered with Sunbiz.org and even fewer obtain a business license with their local county.

- David and Sherri love doing this work! - Compared to someone just doing a job and collecting a paycheck, the results show in not only the work but also in how you and we will interact through the process.

- David and Sherri show up when you expect us! - How many times have you made an appointment for getting a quote or having work done and the contractor does not show up?  Are they hard to get a hold of?  We show up when we have made an appointment and we respond to calls and text day and night and even weekends so we am easy to get a hold of!

- We offer one service, Land Management - ShadowCat Services, Inc specializes in Land Clearing using the environmentally friendly Forestry Mulcher, and offers related Root Raking and Grading services to complement the forestry mulcher work.  However, all these services are Land Management.  Some businesses out there offer a laundry list of services which means they are not specialist.  We do not offer sod services, irrigation, fencing, cement work, etc.  Would you hire a person who dabbles in mechanics to fix your car, or would you prefer a full time ASE certified mechanic?  

- No Money Due Upfront - We do not require any payment upfront for most jobs.  Only if you are doing a very large multi-day job would we ask for partial payment due to the commitment involved.  Do not trust companies who ask for full payment up front, or a deposit on a one day job!  On one day jobs, you pay ShadowCat Services, Inc after the job has been completed.

- Professionalism - After 22 years in the computer industry and 9 years running ShadowCat, you can be assured of being treating professionally and all of your thoughts and ideas treated respectfully.
- One on One partnership - We work together through entire process!  No salesmen or random crew members, just you, David and Sherri.

- ShadowCat Services, Inc is a registered business with the State of Florida - Don't hire a company that you cannot confirm exists... check Sunbiz.org to make sure they are registered with the State of Florida and are active as well as one which can provide a copy of their local County's business license. Many people start doing work without being officially registered with the State of Florida and their local County.

- ShadowCat Services, Inc owns it's machine and attachments - Owning all of our machines means no pass through rental charges to you! If a company is not dedicated enough to own their equipment, how much skill do you think they have operating the rental equipment?  Check out ShadowCat's equipment HERE

- ShadowCat Services, Inc is not a fly by night company - Be wary of companies that have just started.  Many come out of the woodwork during good economies to take advantage of people.  If they rent machines, it should be a red flag! If their selling point is "Half Off!" it should be a red flag!  Rental machines in their pictures will have Ring Power, Sunbelt, Synergy, or other rental company logos on them.  True companies that own their equipment wouldn't post pictures of rental machines, even if their machine "was in the shop".

- ShadowCat Services, Inc works 7 days a week - We can work on any day that fits your schedule... and best of all, we do not charge extra for weekend work!

- ShadowCat Services, Inc has a spotless record with the Better Business Bureau! ShadowCat is proud to have positive reviews and no issues!

-ShadowCat Services, Inc has stellar customer reviews on Google Business! - Just check us out on Google and read 5 star review after 5 star review.  Link to reviews is also on our homepage.

- Free advice - We can discuss your project, best ways to reduce costs, etc.  We will refer you to hauling companies or tree service companies as needed that will give you best price and service in their industries. How many companies will talk to you multiple times without payment?  How many companies will eliminate themselves as the "middle man" and give you numbers directly to other cotnractors who could better serve your needs?

- Consultation -  Considering multiple properties to purchase? Let's talk about what to look for and what to avoid. How many other companies do this without charging you!
- Worry free - Your vision will be accomplished on the first job, no need to hire a follow on contractor to finish the work!  We often times are hired to fix what a bushhog company did wrong by acting like they are a land clearing company.  
- Price Protection - Once we agree on price, it doesn't change mid way through the job!  Only changes to pricing are if you change the scope of the job!  Also we honor prices we give you even if three months down the line you are ready to have the work done.  There is never pressure to sign up for the work right now.  Take your time, think about it or if you are in the process of buying property you will know the cost to clear it prior to purchasing the property.
- ShadowCat Services, Inc operates top of the line equipment - Caterpillar 299D3 X3 Land management machine and attachments, and Denis Cimaf forestry mulcher attachment specifically made for the land clearing jobs!

- ShadowCat Services, Inc carries General Liability insurance! - Only hire companies that carry insurance.  A company that cares will make sure everything is covered if an accident happens!

- Locality - We live in Volusia County currently and spent 25 years in neighboring Seminole County.

- Did I mention... we love doing the work!
