Stock fencing

Recommended Posts

Would be interested in ideas of price please.

 

I have quoted for a total of 217m to include a 3ft and 10ft gate, single strand of plain wire on top. Due to the ground the straining posts will be of box type construction.

 

£1300 to include materials and labour, what is the going southern rate pm?

Thanks

5er a meter, a bit more for each corner/change of direction if this means more strainers, £100 for the small gate, £150 for the big gate.

 

I would be plus VAT

Hadn't realised fencing had got that expensive, it's still £3.40ish around here but obviously you've got to charge a bit more for small and awkward bits.

 

I would think the original quote is about right for a small job.

Ok thanks,

Just looked back at the quote and it was 1350, which work out at 6.22 but includes gates and furniture etc. So happy with that.

Customer asking.......

Up my way where timber is dearer, I'm around £6.00 pm mtr, extra for heap of turners, as for hanging gates, if someone charged me £150 to hang a gate, I'd expect them to open and close it when I require, til take £50 at most and I think that's on the high side even if I supply the hooks I only add £12.

 

£6 is supply and erect,

Erect only £3.00 per mtr,

I don't see the difference between hanging a long or short gate exactly same work, only double gates are chargeable at higher cost.
