Hiring an arborist to remove a big tree. Anything I should know about?

So I'm going to be hiring an arborist to remove a 50-60 feet norway maple in the winter when its dormant. Now I know the basics such as asking for their insurance and license. But how do I know if its not a fake insurance and license though? But I don't think I would need to because I plan on having Savatree(a very famous tree service company) do it.

Also, if I'm not the homeowner, can they still do it? It is actually my neighbor's tree and I just asked my neighbor today if I can have it cut down and he agreed. I will be paying everything. So are there any other precautions to take on hiring an arborist?
