How It Works To Rent A Temporary Fence

Posted on: 18 August 2022


Do you have a piece of property that needs a temporary fence set up around it? If so, you may be wondering how the process works. Here is an overview of what you can expect. 

Initial Inquiry 

Everything starts by calling a fence rental company to determine what kind of fence that you need. By talking about your needs and where the fence will be installed, you'll be guided to the right type of fence for you. For example, you may need a panel fence that is resting on concrete or a fence that is driven into the ground temporarily because it is installed on grass. There is also fencing for crowd control or special fencing that is designed to protect plants, vegetation, and trees. 

You'll be asked a few questions about what kind of accessories you need for the fence. For example, the fence rental company can provide gates so that you have easy access in and out of the fenced-off area. You can also get privacy screens placed on the fence to prevent others from looking in, which is helpful for construction sites. If you are worried about someone climbing over the fence, barbed wire can be placed on top. A top rail can also be added for more stability. 

Be ready with the measurements of approximately how large of a fence you need. This will help you receive an accurate quote for how much your fence will cost.


The fence rental company will come out to your property and handle the entire installation for you. This is the best way to ensure that the fence is set up properly, and you won't have to worry about the fence falling down because you did not know how to install it yourself. All of the fencing material will be delivered on a flatbed truck, along with all the accessories needed for the installation.


When your need for a temporary fence is finished, a crew will come to your property to help remove the material and take it back to their facility. They will handle the entire deconstruction of the fence and load it onto their truck. Make sure that you fully understand your contract and what type of wear and tear will be covered during the use of the temporary fence. Make sure to note any damage or problems that you encounter so that the fence rental company is aware.
