We receive a lot of questions about temporary fence hire prices on a daily basis, naturally, but we find a lot of questions come about because of the confusion about what is included and not included in fence hire prices.
When it comes to hiring temporary fencing and items of this nature, we realise it can be confusing to work out the total costs. Particularly if you are not quite sure of your actual requirements.
It can also add to the confusion that many hire companies quote differently, so it’s important to know what your hire agreement includes and doesn’t include in order to be clear on the costs.
To make it easier for you to understand the hiring process and help you work out the indicative costs involved with hiring temporary fence, we’ll run through a full breakdown of what you need to consider when it comes to temporary fence hire prices.
What Type of Temporary Fencing Do You Need?
What type of temporary fencing you need to hire is a fairly simple question that generally has a straightforward answer. There is really not that many choices when it comes to temporary fencing hire, so the answer will be easy.
If you need to secure a property or site, then the standard 2100mm panels will most likely be the requirement. If, on the other hand, you are running an event or securing a swimming pool, then 1200mm crowd control barriers or temporary pool fencing will be more appropriate.
How Much Temporary Fencing Do You Need?
This is one of the first questions we will ask you when you call to inquire about temporary fence hire. And this is one of the main requirements that will be factored in when it comes to calculating a hire price.
For builders, this can easily be calculated off your plans. For homeowners, the best way to start working this out is to think about the size of your block or the size of the area you want to be fenced.
You may need to install temporary fencing around the entire perimeter of your project if you are installing or renovating a pool for example. Or you may have existing fences or other structures in place that would make installing temporary fencing difficult or unnecessary. In this case, you may just need to fence off part of your property in order to keep your site safe and secure.
How Long Do You Want to Hire Temporary Fencing For?
How long you want to hire temporary fencing for is another question that will determine the temporary fence hire prices.
The timeframe for when you need to hire temporary fencing varies significantly from project to project.
If you are a builder and need temporary fencing to secure your construction site, then you are likely wanting a hire period of three to six months or longer. If on the other hand, you are an event organiser, then you may only want temporary fencing for a weekend.
Once we have determined how long you will need to hire your temporary fencing then we can discuss pricing. If you are not quite sure, we can help guide you.
And of course, there is always the option to extend your hire period if and as you require.
What Extra Components Do You Need With Your Temporary Fence Hire?
Along with the basic fence panels, there are other components that make up temporary fencing. Some of these are required components, while others are optional extras.
As standard, you will need panels, feet, and couplings to ensure the fencing is constructed securely. These are all included in the standard hire price.
If you need additional components such as wind braces and dog bars, then this will alter the hire price slightly.
On top of standard fittings and common extras, there is also the option to add signage and/or bunting to your fence hire package. There are many benefits to adding bunting to your temporary fence hire and definitely worth considering.
And again, the components required changes from project to project. We will need to find out your particular circumstances in order to provide you with an accurate price.
What About Insurance and Delivery?
This is where things can get a little tricky when it comes to temporary fence hire prices and by tricky, I mean confusing… especially if you are comparing quotes.
Temporary fence hire quotes can vary considerably from company to company when it comes to the inclusion and/or exclusion of insurance and delivery charges. Some will provide you with an all-inclusive price while others will add delivery and insurance on top of the hire price. It’s important to know exactly what you are getting quoted for.
So, next time you are shopping around for temporary fence hire prices, consider the following elements that may affect your price and ensure each quote covers these areas.
- Temporary fence type
- Quantity required
- Length of the hire period
- Any extra components required
- Insurance and delivery charges
