Over the years, we’ve come across some horror stories in the temporary fencing industry. You wouldn’t think that much could go wrong with temporary fencing products, would you? After all, surely all the company must do is arrive, set up, and then remove the fence when finished.
At least, that’s how it’s supposed to work. When you hire the right contractor, like Site Fencing Services, that’s exactly how things go. We take customer service seriously and would never try to palm your job off onto a subcontractor.
Before we even accept the job, we’ll talk things through to find the best temporary fencing solutions for your needs. We make sure that you get what you need when you need it, and at the minimum level of fuss for you. Our job is to make your life easier.
Unfortunately, not all contractors who offer site fencing are willing to provide the same level of outstanding service. We often get calls from frantic event planners who have been let down at the last minute or who haven’t been provided with the fencing that they need.
Sometimes we’ve had to come in and take over when the contractor hadn’t installed enough fencing. We could go on and on, but we’re sure that you get the basic idea.
That’s why we decided to help you find the right contractor by highlighting what to look for when finding temporary fencing.
Pinpoint timing is often critical in this industry. Whether you’re running a construction site and need to keep your supplies safe ormanaging a huge concert, you need someone you can trust.
You need to know that the fence will go up on time so that you can keep to your schedule. Any delays in this area could prove costly for you. That’s why we recommend checking out the reputation of the company you’re considering hiring.
What other jobs have they done? Can you speak to previous clients who had similar requirements to you? Are they willing to commit in writing to the delivery and installation? Check the references that they give you and online reviews to ensure that they keep to their word.
In some industries, there are unexpected expenses that could crop up later. This should not be one of those industries. You need to do your part ahead of time and come up with a detailed plan of the area that you want to fence off and then choose the type of fencing you require.
You could speak to the contractor and ask them for advice ahead of time if you’re unsure of details. Once they’ve locked down what they’re going to be doing, they should be able to give you an accurate quote.
After all, barring changes made by yourself, there’s not much that should change from their side. Speak to them and find out what could alter the price. In some cases, there may need to be additional charges because of obstacles they come across while setting up.
A reputable company, however, will be upfront about what these charges might be. We’ll usually go and take a look at the route or the area to be fenced to get a better idea of what we’re dealing with before we quote.
The point is that there should not be any big differences between the quoted price and the actual cost unless something changes significantly.
Do you need temporary fencing solutions?
Do your research upfront. How willing is the company to meet you halfway if issues arise? What is their basic customer service ethic? Do they have good reviews?
Instead of going through these steps, you can contact Site Fencing Services for reliable, fair temporary fencing.
