Temporary Fence Hire vs Buy

At TTFS we supply a wide range of customers and industries with temporary fencing at a price that’s very economical when compared to hiring temporary fencing.

Hiring temporary fencing is not cost effective in the long run. When you hire temp fencing there can be many additional costs, fees and charges depending on usage, damage set up and extending usage periods.

Therefore, when you are weighing up whether to buy or hire, you need to consider how many projects you’ll need the fencing for alongside whether you’ll make money off selling the fencing on after you have completed all your projects.

Why buying your own temporary fence compared to simply hiring it out?

✓ Better Flexibility

Use your fence when and where you want. You’ll no longer need to call up a hire company, organise payment, delivery, etc. Work on your own timelines and get your projects don quicker.

✓ No Terms and Conditions

Compared to hiring, when you buy there are no expensive charges if the fences are damaged or stolen/lost.  From a damage waiver fee to cleaning fee and even just the admin cost per hire invoice, you’re in for a decent spend when hiring your fencing. These extra charges on top of the normal hire rates can quickly add up and put your project over budget.

✓ One Transaction

We all know projects tend to go over the quote time frame, and that’s where hiring temp fencing can catch you out. Typically, when you hire and need your fencing for an extended period of time you’ll be charged extra costs for extending your hire period.

✓ Save Money

If you know you’ll use your temporary fencing more than once, then buying is definitely the way to go as you will have paid it off in only one or two projects. Plus, if you’re a savvy businessman/women then you’ll easily be able to sell on your used temporary fencing when you know you no longer need it anymore.

Temporary Fencing Hire Prices

Temp fencing hire prices and rates can vary between companies quite considerably. On average you will look at about $500 for 40-50 metres of temporary fencing for 1 week hire or $900 for 12 months’ hire. Plus, the hidden fees such as approximately $70 for each damaged or missing panel, $30 for missing feet weights and anything from $40 for missing or damaged gate wheels.

Add all the above up alongside the labour and costs of transporting and installing your temp fencing and you have a fair price on your hands. Especially if you’ll be working on a number of projects which require temporary fencing.
