Not sure if we service your area? Give us a call and we’ll let you know.
When does the hire period start?
The hire period will begin on the day of delivery/installation.
When does the hire period end?
Each temporary fence hire will have an initial hire period. Once this initial hire period has ended, it is up to the customer to notify us when the fence is no longer needed. The fence will be off-hired from this date.
What is the period for rehires?
Once the initial hire period has finished, the hire will automatically change to monthly billing until you request for the fence to be removed. Don’t worry, we do not increase an initial hire period of six months by another six months when all you need is an extra month!
What happens if we finish with our temporary fence hire before the minimum hire period is completed?
If you no longer require the temporary fence while you are still in your initial hire period, we can collect the fence early, but there is no part refund. The initial hire period is the minimum agreed cost for the temporary fence hire.
How do we pay for the temporary fence hire?
Once we have all your details, we will email you an invoice for payment. Through this email, you can click a link to pay by Credit Card (merchant fees apply) or you can pay by direct deposit.
Hire Rite may keep card details on file, for the purpose of recouping unpaid bills or damages.
What additional charges are there?
Wherever possible we aim to keep all costs inclusive so you don’t incur additional charges, however, there are some circumstances where additional charges come into effect. These include:
The temporary fence hire includes one (1) delivery and one (1) pick up. If a request is made to come and move the fence, add additional fence panels, partially remove fence panels etc then a labour charge of $60 plus GST per hour including travel time, or a minimum charge of $150 plus GST – whichever is the greatest, will apply.
If Hire Rite attends your site and is unable to install or collect the temporary fencing and components on the day requested by the customer, for any reason outside of Hire Rite’s control, then labour charges set out above will apply.
Damaged or lost equipment
Hire Rite thoroughly inspects all our products before leaving our depot and again upon collection. If any part is damaged, unable to be repaired, missing or stolen, replacement costs will be incurred.
Replacement costs for common products deemed unfit for repair, missing or stolen will be as follows;
Construction fence panels $140 plus GST
Fence bases $35 plus GST
Fence Clamps $10 plus GST
Wind Brace $40 plus GST
Gate Clamp $20 plus GST
Pool Fence panels $140 plus GST
Pool Fence Gates $450 plus GST
Pool Fence bases $35 plus GST
What happens if the fence is damaged or stolen from my site?
The temporary fence panels and associated components are the responsibility of the hirer while it is on your site. Any damage or loss, while the equipment is in your possession, will incur replacement costs as outlined in the question above. Plus the equipment hire charges will continue until payment for loss or damage has been received.
Can we move the fence once it is installed?
Yes, you can move and/or adjust the fence onsite but please get approval from Hire Rite first. The fence cannot be relocated to another site.
Can shade cloth or advertising banner mesh / signage be attached to the temporary fence?
Absolutely! We can even arrange the shade cloth and banner mesh for you.
However, there is a few important things to consider first… Temporary Fence is not fixed to the ground, and attaching shade cloth or too much signage can lead to the fence being vulnerable to blowing over in strong winds. We always recommend installing wind braces to the temporary fence to help stabilise the fence when you are using shade cloth, banner mesh or extensive signage.
If you, the customer, fits shade cloth or signage to the fence, or if you have Hire Rite fit the shade cloth, the responsibility is on you, the customer, to ensure the fence does not blow over. Hire Rite will not be liable for any injury or damage as a result of the fence blowing over. We recommend all shade cloth and signage be removed by the customer in the event of strong winds.
