Temporary Fence Hire – Three Things You Need to Know!
Maybe you’re starting a business, maybe you’re organising an event, or maybe you’re building a new pool that needs temporary fencing during construction. No matter the purpose, you’ve figured out that you require temporary fencing.
But what’s the best way to fulfil your temp fencing needs? While hiring temporary fencing may be an attractive option at first, it’s important to think carefully about what you need and what the best investment will be for you.
1. Buying vs Hiring
Remember, “temporary” doesn’t mean “disposable” in this case – temporary fencing is designed to be used over and over again.
No matter what your industry, there’s a good chance that if you need temporary fencing once, you’ll need it again!
Purchasing temporary fencing is often more cost effective than hiring it – you can use your fence when and wherever you need without having to wait for delivery. It’s a simple one-time transaction with no terms or conditions, and there’s no extra costs for extending hire periods.
Most importantly – a temporary fencing purchase will pay for itself within one or two projects!
Think about what you’ll need for various projects and your requirements in the future – the friendly customer service team at the Temporary Fencing Shop can help you figure out your needs.
2. Hidden fees
Hiring temporary fencing may seem like the cheaper option at face value, but there can be hidden costs and fees in your contract that you need to be aware of.
This can include being stung for damaged or missing fencing – unless there’s an allowance in the contract for this, it can set you back significantly more than the original cost of hire. Some temporary fencing hire companies can charge up to 400% of the actual cost to replace damaged fencing.
Purchasing your own temporary fencing means you can replace any damaged panel on an as-needed basis, for far cheaper than what you’d be charged if hired fencing was accidentally damaged.
Delivery and installation is another common hidden fee, along with cleaning fees, hire contract extensions and transport – it’s easy to end up paying a lot more than you initially expected when it comes to hiring temporary fencing.
