Most construction companies use some sort of temporary fencing so that they can provide added security for any job sites they are working on. Temporary fencing is used to prevent entry from non-authorized persons, keeping valuable materials secure and preventing bystander injuries. This article has been written to help you choose the best construction fence rental company.
The installation of a temporary fence will likely save you time and money throughout the project. Read on to learn some tips on finding the right construction fence rental company to meet your requirements – and your budget.
Narrow Down Potential Fence Contractors
Most construction companies start with the cold call. In this step, you simply contact several fence contractors and discuss your project. In this step, you may find it helpful to create a bulleted list of your requirements before you start calling fence contractors.
- Size of area to be fenced?
- How long is the project expected to take?
- What is the purpose of your construction project?
- How long has your fence company been in business?
- Is your fence company a verified government contractor?
- Is your company officially designated a minority or women-owned business?
- Is your fence company a family business?
Ask for their recommendations for temporary fencing. Prices may vary according to project length of time as well as materials chosen. Also ask how long fence installation will take and how might their work impact your work. Finally, use your own intuition as a guide. Do they seem knowledgeable? Do their recommendations make sense? Is price and time what you expect and roughly in-line with competitor price/time? Here you will likely mark several fence companies off of your list – if you feel uncertain about their professionalism, now is the time to eliminate them from your choices.
Get the Estimate in Writing
You are likely narrowing down your choices by now, and you need a quote from a few of the companies that made it through the first cut. Contact these companies and provide the specific details for your project (amount and type of fencing you need, time it will be needed, budget). Request a written, binding estimate. If any company balks at this, eliminate them as well.
Request References from Fence Contractors
Ask for references and ask for pictures. You regret it if you do not check out their previous work. Look at images from their previous construction fence projects. Call their references and ask about the quality of the fence, how long the installation took and whether or not the company was reliable. If your fence company is unwilling to share images of previous jobs or specific contact information for previous customers, eliminate them from your list.
