Fencing: Pro’s and Cons
Unfortunately the Pros and Cons in the title actually stands for Professionals and Con Artists.
With the recent strong winds people are waking up to the sight of a missing fence panel or two or even having acquired a couple of their neighbours panels and are avidly hitting the Internet and the directories to find suppliers and fitters of fencing.
There are lots and lots of fine, upstanding and reputable companies but we must remember there is a small minority that are only out to make a quick quid.
Most of the time these ‘bad eggs’ do a reasonable job of erecting new fencing for you and the cost for them doing it is very cheap. I can hear you asking ‘what’s the problem with that?’ Well let me highlight the potential problems with these companies.
You may receive a quote of £300; accept the job and when it’s finished you could receive a bill of £500 because of the added extras, which can include cost of delivery, extra labour charges for additional fitters and demolition and removal of your old fencing materials.
Here’s why we’re different
Here at Earlswood we pride ourselves on being professional from start to finish. We’ll discuss the work you want and offer our professional opinion and may even suggest something that’s better and cheaper. Once we know what you want, you’ll receive a quote in writing. Our quotes include cost of materials, labour, delivery, fitting and removal of your old panels; there are no hidden charges.
We never take a penny up-front for any fencing job and don’t even ask for any money on the day of completion. We leave you with your newly erected fence to assess the work and make sure you are completely satisfied before making payment.
It’s still not all doom and gloom…
What to check for:
